The Next New Jersey Coach

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Maven,

Lamoriello’s current assistant coach John MacLean has just thrown his hat into the ring.
Matter of fact, Johnny Mac – one of the all-time New Jersey hockey heroes – just told me so.
My question was simple: “John, how interested are you in the head coaching job?”
To which Mac shot back: “I’m definitely interested.”...
Pat Burns would love to return behind the bench now that he’s feeling healthy again. Other possibilities include Scott Stevens, Mike Sullivan and – if he’s released by San Jose – Ron Wilson.

The Return Of Peter Puck

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

TORONTO, May 9 /CNW/ - After being shut out for more than a quarter century, Peter Puck is locked, loaded and ready to score. Created by hockey historian and past CBC Hockey Night in Canada commentator Brian McFarlane, Peter Puck is bouncing out of retirement to the applause of hockey enthusiasts around the world. The chirpy, cartoon rubber biscuit emerged in 1973 and quickly became recognized as the most popular intermission personality ever featured on televised NHL games.

Ruff Starting Early

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

The Sabres coach was quick and sharp when asked about comments made by Ray Emery, who said in Tuesday’s Sun that he’s not thrilled about having to spend off-days in Buffalo and joked on TSN’s Off The Record that he might pass his spare time this week hanging out at TGI Friday’s.
“He’ll find things to do,” Ruff said with a chuckle after the Sabres practiced yesterday.
“Rent a Hummer truck ... go for a ride, go for a drive, drive around a little bit.”

Look On The Bright Side

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

San Jose finding the positives from losing to the Wings…
from the Mercury News, -

-You’d be amazed how easily a player’s day with the Stanley Cup can end with a brawl and an arrest at a strip club. No worries here.
-Ron Wilson can watch “The Sopranos” on Sunday nights. What if the Sharks had a game to play and Wilson had to record it and not watch until Monday or even Tuesday? And what if someone on the radio revealed a spoiler as Wilson was driving to work? No telling how salty he might get then.

Why Even Watch Basketball When You Have The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

Right now, you have a choice most nights of watching either the NHL playoffs or the NBA playoffs. To us, it’s no contest. The NHL playoffs are way better than the NBA playoffs. Here are 10 reasons why.
Overtime
1 Basketball overtimes last five minutes. Throw in a bunch of timeouts and free throws and it can take a half-hour, and you usually know who is going to win most of that time. Hockey? It might last 30 seconds or it might last until 4 in the morning and you can’t take your eyes off the screen.

There Is Only 1 Duck Fan And His Name Is Earl

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So I’m tooling around, looking for a few links to give you for the port side WCF section…and I’m having a bit of trouble locating any Duck blogs other than B.O.C.  Earl Sleek, who runs the Anaheim portion of that little ditty, has been around a while so we know what he’s about.  But finding other SoCal assets has proved to be frustrating…thus far.  Earl…suggestions?  I promise not to start my personal attacks on you until tomorrow at the earliest if you can provide us a few recommendations.

If Wings Win, So Do Panthers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Detroit Free Press,

This is the scenario: In order for the Florida Panthers to get this year’s first-round pick three things have to happen: 1) The Wings have to be in the final four of the playoffs, 2) Bertuzzi has to play in two-thirds of the playoff games, and 3) Bertuzzi has to be among the top-five scorers.
If the first two happen but Bertuzzi is not a top-five scorer, then it’s a second-round draft pick – unless the Wings go to the Stanley Cup finals, in which case it reverts back to a first-round pick. If Bertuzzi re-signs with the Wings, the Panthers get a second pick in 2008.

Gomez Ready For UFA Period

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via the Akron Beacon Journal,

“We have gone this far, it would be foolish not to see what’s out there,” Gomez said. “That doesn’t man anything. It doesn’t mean I am leaning one way or I don’t want to be here. I have talked to all the guys that have played here and gone through this. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Gomez went to arbitration last summer and was awarded a one-year, $5 million deal.
After collecting 13 goals and 47 assists in the regular season, and four goals and 10 assists in the postseason, Gomez can expect even more next year.

Shanahan Would Like To Stay A Ranger

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

“My instincts are that I will probably play, but it’s something that I’m going to think over,’’ he said in front of dressing room stalls full of practice gear no longer needed this season. “As far as playing and coming here this year and being part of the Rangers, there’s nowhere else I’d rather play.’‘
