H2H: Where We Stand in ‘10

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’ve alerted Dave Bing.  Oddly, he hasn’t written me back.  But I felt it was my displaced civic duty to let him know that March 26th may be a date he should go ahead and circle on his Detroit calendar.  No less than 50 of you will converge on Hockeytown and it just seems like a good call to let the authorities know a brouhaha may be in the making. 

I’m gonna give you an update on where we stand with the Herm to Hockeytown project and this will also serve as your formal notification that H2H is no longer an A2Y-specific initiative.  We now have a website in development (thanks Gabe) dedicated specifically to H2H.  There’s a Twitter account created specifically for H2H.  We have members of the A2Y family who have taken this project on and expanded it across multiple blogs, several community ogranizations, media outlets and the team itself. 

With three months until the game, it’s time to put the pedal down.

Bylsma With The Line Of The Night

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Izzy Gould of the St. Petersburg Times,

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said “everybody’s fine” after a stretcher was wheeled into the coaches room after the game. No one was brought out. Asked if anyone was in trouble, Bylsma pointed to the players’ locker room and said, “The ones who are in trouble are in there.”

Hotstove Talks Winter Classic

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

Hockey Night in Canada’s Hotstove Panel added their thoughts on the future of the outdoor game, after Hockey Night in Canada analyst Elliotte Friedman shared that the event has generated interest as far south as Dallas.

Jerry Jones, owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, has expressed interest in hosting the NHL’s Winter Classic at the new Cowboys stadium, Friedman said.

“It would be a huge financial windfall, but of course, it wouldn’t be a true Winter Classic,” said Friedman.

The latest Winter Classic matchup, between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park on New Year’s Day, was widely acclaimed as the best in the event’s three-year history.

Major networks and the NHL are now more excited about the Winter Classic than the Stanley Cup playoffs, said host Ron MacLean.

continued and LeBrun mentioned during this segment that Thrashers GM Waddell wants an answer on the Kovalchuk contract situation by Monday.

Headed West, Because Change Is Good For The Soul…Health Would Be Better Though

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Chris McCosky called it this today…

It had to feel like a tease.

Mike Babcock watched three of his top players—Jonathan Ericsson, Danny Cleary and Henrik Zetterberg—skate around the ice Saturday morning seemingly without much pain or discomfort, knowing all the while he wasn’t going to have them in the lineup for the game Saturday night against Phoenix.

A tease is one thing.  But when you have those three looking ready to play, and you’ve also got Franzen, Williams and Kronwall on this West Coast trip?  It’s not just a tease.

I take pride in the fact that the building is full all the time,” Murray said. “You look at the development of the young players. Look at some of the guys and the (Olympic) recognition they’ve gotten recently. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my job. It’s a tough job to lose, but I’m appreciative. I don’t blame the players. It’s my job to get wins. I didn’t get enough of them.

1. Craig Anderson (Colorado)
2. Ty Conklin (St. Louis)
3. Jimmy Howard (Detroit)

Sucking, Sitting, Sulking

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I promised you guys an H2H update today.  I’m waiting on a few bits of info then I’ll post it. 

It’s been two days since FNG Digger Chris McCosky told us Chris Osgood isn’t happy.  It’s been two years since we saw the same Chris Osgood play a decent stretch of regular season games.  McCosky’s article came out on New Year’s Eve and most of you were wasted already and may have missed this little ditty.

You have to get into some games and get into a groove and then I can play like I can. It’s not that I don’t know how to do it.

“But if you don’t play, it’s impossible to get to that point. I’m a goalie, OK, and I’ve been playing for 20-some years since Juniors. What I say (about goaltending) is closer to the facts than what he (Babcock) would say.”

Whoa.  I just did a Google search for “Babcock” to see if maybe, just maybe, Chris Osgood was referring to someone other than our Uncle Mike.
