Shanny Is Back

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Kolb at MSG Network,

Worry no more Ranger fans. “Shanny” is in the fold.
Despite Shanahan’s proclamation at season’s end, rumors persisted this off-season that No. 14 might be headed elsewhere. Shanahan however, has proven to be a real team player on-and-off the ice -both during the season and now in the off-season. He understood how important it was for GM Glen Sather to deal with more pressing issues before it came time for Shanahan to re-up.

more... and many Wings fans will agree with David’s views.  We have witnessed the “Shanny delay” numerous times throughout his career with the Wings.  Once he made the statement that he did, there should have been no doubt about his return.

Born To Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo Sabres,

Although he didn’t officially begin playing ice hockey until the age of 10, T.J. Brennan was born to play the game. Or at least that’s what he’ll tell you.
Brennan was faced with a difficult decision coming out of high school. Receiving multiple collegiate scholarships in lacrosse, Brennan choose to forgo a higher education and roll the dice with the sport he loves, opting to play hockey for St. John’s Fog Devils of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Goodbye Rory

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from 24 Hours Vancouver,

Fitzpatrick’s season in Vancouver will be remembered for a grassroots campaign to elect him to the Western conference all-star team. It went out of control when Vancouver web developer Brad Touesnard figured out how to bombard the NHL site with votes for Rory, who finished behind Anaheim Duck Scott Niedermayer and Detroit Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom with 486,842 votes.
“Rory did a wonderful job for us, very professional, a great team guy,” said Canucks’ assistant general manager Steve Tambellini. “But when we found out we had a chance to acquire Aaron Miller we were aggressive at it and went after it.”

Gretzky Has Influence On The Banking World

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

Richard D. Fairbank plays center on a full-contact recreational hockey team. He coaches his youth teams at the local rink, and is a part owner of the Washington Capitals.
So when Mr. Fairbank, who is also the chairman and chief executive of Capital One Financial, talks about his company’s strategy, it is hardly surprising that he calls it the Gretzky Concept.
“If you go to where the puck is going instead of where it is, it is a lot easier,” he said in a recent interview in his office at the company’s sleek new headquarters outside Washington.

read on...a lot of banking talk…
