Avs Still Missing Smyth & Forsberg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

Ryan Smyth and Peter Forsberg were both kept out of the Colorado Avalanche’s lineup for Thursday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Smyth skated effortlessly earlier in the day and showed no signs of the concussion and shoulder injury that forced him to miss five games. Forsberg, out with a strained groin, didn’t take the ice at all in the Avalanche’s morning skate.

Physical Aspect Of The Game Must Stay

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rory Borlyen at the Hockey News,

Grit, toughness, a fearless attitude, whatever you want to call it; rough-and-tumble pest players are exciting and crucial to not only the game itself, but for attracting people to it.

And in more ways than just what you see on the ice.

The agitator, the annoyance, the grinder; the guy you love to have on your team, but hate to have to face. He’s the worker bee, the proletariat, the supporting cast, and quite often, he’s a fan favorite.

Fans Have A Voice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Boone at the Hockey News,

Most hockey fans have never heard of the National Hockey League Fans’ Association, or NHLFA. Yes, there is such an organization representing the common, fifth-line fan.

Many people are surprised at the stats of this little not-for-profit organization. The NHLFA has been battling much bigger opponents for a respectable 10 seasons.

It all started in 1997, when two Ottawa schmucks vented over the astronomical offer the New York Rangers had made to restricted free agent Joe Sakic ($21M over three years, which the Avalanche matched to retain his rights). Bob Goodenow was five years into his impressive tenure leading the NHL Players’ Association. The schmucks, along with millions of hockey fans, feared rising ticket prices would severely damage the sport we loved. We knew something had to be done to protect the fans.
