Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I think I’m a pretty simple player. What you see is what you get. In order for me to be successful, I need to defend really well, number one, and [I need to] be a big, physical presence out there.” I definitely have a [will] to win and I bring a lot of competitiveness. It’s nothing flashy; I don’t think anyone has ever used that word to describe me as a player. I’m a steady player and the excitement probably comes from the physicality department.”

-Douglas Murray of the Montreal Canadiens via the Habs website where you can read more from Murray.

Investment Gone Bad

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

Panthers minority owner and advertising mogul Jordan Zimmerman has filed a lawsuit against two fellow Boca Raton businessmen to recoup a $1 million investment into a pornography website that he thought was a legitimate dating service, a source has confirmed.

Zimmerman and co-plaintiff Al Malnik gave Marc Bell and Dan Staton $1 million apiece to invest into FriendFinder Network. They stated in the suit filed in Palm Beach County court that they never heard of the company involved and didn’t know that the site was a successor to Penthouse Magazine’s pornography empire which is linked to thousands of X-rated websites.

Red Wings mid-day news: fan participation-related Tweets, a Chelios rental and speculative stuff

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 6x at 5:07 PM: I have a more than slightly disjointed slate of Red Wings-related news for you this afternoon, so let's start with fan-participatory news (and again, Wings single-game tickets go on sale tomorrow, and the Wings will lower the 1997 Stanley Cup banner at the Joe for fan photo opportunities):

(105.1 is giving tickets away every hour on the hour...)

Capitals Sign Mikhail Grabovski

Blog: F Street Faithful By Matthew Tate

Rumors circulating over the past couple of days have come true as the Washington Capitals have signed unrestricted free agent center Mikhail Grabovski to a one-year deal worth roughly $3 million.  The move comes as a bit of a surprise as it had appeared that George McPhee was standing pat with the roster that he had.  He even went as fair as to name Brooks Laich as the second-line center for the upcoming season.  That probably is not the case anymore.

This should be nothing of a slight against Brooks Laich, but Mikhail Grabovski gives the Capitals a legitimate player to fill the hole left when Mike Ribeiro bolted for the desert.  Grabovski, 29, has all the makings of a scoring center, if he can stay healthy.  His best season came in 2010-2011 when he racked up 29 goals and 29 assists in 81 games with Toronto.  He has scored 20+ goals in all 3 seasons in which he played more than 60 games.  If his NHL numbers last season are combined with his KHL numbers, he actually posted a respectable 21 goals and 19 assists in 77 games.

Blues Put Single-Game Tickets On Sale This Saturday, But

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

There are four games on the 2013-14 schedule that are not available via single-game ticket purchases: Opening night Oct. 3 (Nashville), Oct. 9 (Chicago), Dec. 28 (Chicago) and Apr. 13 (Detroit).

The Blues are one of the NHL teams this season, including Nashville, which are requiring fans to buy tickets to multiple games in order to acquire them for meetings against Chicago.

In recent years, the Blackhawks have attracted huge crowds to Scottrade Center, at times taking over the in-game atmosphere, and that could continue after the 'Hawks won their second Stanley Cup in four years in 2012-13.

But this season, tickets to those four aforementioned games are available only as part of full- and half-season tickets, or 12-game and hat-trick plans. Games are divided into three price categories: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

A Little Tease

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In my opinion, the video starts out a little slow but then picks up with some great hockey clips from the past season.

I sure am anticipating the return of our game, the game played on the ice.

Hate, hate and more hate

Blog: KK Hockey By Monica McAlister

That was the hockey world yesterday. 

Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk was in his home country of Russia where the highly controversial anti-gay law has been making headlines at least once a day when he was asked about his take on it.

Now from what I have read online no one that is bashing or standing up for Datsyuk was actually there in Russia.  I think many, especially the further west in North America we go, were probably still asleep when the question was asked – that didn’t stop anyone from spreading out venom.

At this point every mainstream media, established bloggers and recreational tweeter has expressed their outrage over Datsyuk citing his religion as his answer to a politically driven question.
