The Malik Report

Red Wings’ Ken Holland, Henrik Zetterberg weigh in on the art of Kronwalling

TSN posted quite the feature on Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's status as a cult hero and then some in Detroit, and perhaps as a villain in other cities, and HockeyWebCaster uploaded it to YouTube:

And yes, Kronwall insists that he's trying to keep things as clean as he can while leading the Wings' defense and trying to keep the physical edge to his game while playing anywhere between 22-27 minutes a night.

Oh c’mon, Kronner.  Nothing to be shy about.

“Kronner reminds me a lot of Konstantinov”

I’ll take that.

“Hockey” at it’s best.

Love the feature. The Konstantinov remark is a pretty high compliment, too—a compliment Kronwall is deserving of.

“this is a clean hit, a thing of beauty.  if you don’t like it, change the channel.”

I like this video better…

you can hear the chant better, but what I really like about it is the moment when Kronwall is all alone in the center of our zone, with the puck, and up comes the roar.

there are a couple of those where I think Kronner would get suspened in today’s NHL.  it’s not really his fault when the opposing player is hunched over and goes into him face first…but I’m sure Shanihanigans and the crew wouldn’t care.
