Hockey Notes Today

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

USA Hockey’s decision to make John Vanbiesbrouck one of its most prominent faces and forces by hiring the former Rangers (and Islanders and Devils) goaltender as assistant executive director of hockey operations is, at best, a tone-deaf call and, at worst, a willfully ignorant one.

Just over a year ago, the patriarchy faced a boycott from the national women’s team over the administration’s separate and unequal treatment. Now, to replace the beloved, late Jim Johansson as the organization’s grassroots ambassador, this same body has selected an individual whose considerable accomplishments on the ice have been overshadowed by his conduct as the OHL Sault Ste. Marie general manager-coach 15 years ago, when he called his team captain, Trevor Daley, the N-word on more than one occasion and was forced to resign from his post in 2003....

The deal between the Islanders and Maple Leafs that allowed Lou Lamoriello to talk with John Tavares even while the exec was still under contract as a senior adviser to Toronto was orchestrated by ownership, Slap Shots has learned.

It is believed that neither Islanders’ then-president and apparently still-GM Garth Snow nor the Maple Leafs’ president Brendan Shanahan was aware of the agreement. In fact, we’re further told that Snow and coach Doug Weight were kept out of the loop regarding ownership’s talks with Lamoriello while the two men were scouting at the World Championships in Denmark.

A Disappointing Loss For Team USA

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The 2018 U.S. Men's National Team outshot Sweden, 41-20, but fell in its semifinal game, 6-0, at the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's World Championship

“Today’s outcome is disappointing, especially with how pleased we were of our play in the first and third periods,” said Jeff Blashill, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Men’s National Team. “I thought our effort was there but Sweden was able to capitalize on special teams and that was the difference. Our guys know there’s still a medal at stake tomorrow so now it’s time to pick ourselves up and find a way to win a hockey game.”

The United States (5-2-0-2/W-OTW-OTL-L) will play in tomorrow’s (May 20) bronze medal game against the loser of tonight’s Canada-Switzerland semifinal. Puck drop is set for 3:45 p.m. local time (9:45 a.m. ET) in Copenhagen at Royal Arena and will be televised live on NHL Network.

We’ll enjoy this tonight before traveling to Copenhagen tomorrow and turning our attention to what we expect will be a hard-fought semifinal game.”
