One Questionable Play Addressed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

National Hockey League Senior Vice President and Director of Officiating Stephen Walkom tonight released the following statement pertaining to a play with 4.1 seconds remaining in the first period of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final:

“With a delayed penalty about to be called by the back referee (Bill McCreary) for a high stick by Edmonton player Ethan Moreau, Oilers' defenseman Steve Staios deliberately bats the puck in the crease, which constitutes control and the play is considered dead. Referee Watson, who was unaware that a delayed penalty was being called, was waiting for a play that would constitute a normal stoppage. Batting the puck by a player in the defensive zone does not constitute a stoppage. Referee Watson stopped play when the Oilers' player covered the puck. He was then informed by Referee McCreary of the delayed penalty, which required play to be stopped at the moment when control was achieved by the batting of the puck by Staios.”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Wow, the never ending season is over. Both teams deserve high praise, the NHL is back folks! image added 11:16pm, from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

As Carolina players celebrated wildly on the ice, the Oilers gathered at their bench to await the traditional postgame handshakes, many with tears in their eyes. The game will go down in Stanley Cup lore as one of the most frenzied and intense in history, with the pace just incredible throughout.

Goaltending Issues For Oilers & Canes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Even after Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers will both have goaltending issues. The Oilers have until July 1 to sign injured Dwayne Roloson or he becomes an unrestricted free agent.... Meanwhile, the Hurricanes' future seems solid with Cam Ward, who might have turned in the best rookie playoff run since Montreal's Patrick Roy in 1986. But tradition says goalies can sometimes struggle in their second season. With Gerber presumed to be heading elsewhere, the Hurricanes probably will be looking for a veteran goalie to replace him.

Oiler Fans Buy Canes Season Tickets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via Slam,

Hundreds of Canadian hockey fans made the trek south to cheer on the Oilers, who were attempting to become the first Canadian team in 13 years to win the Stanley Cup. Some got great seats with free tickets to the big game by purchasing 2006-2007 Carolina Hurricanes season tickets for $800. Russ Boghean of Ardossan, Alta., was getting into a loud pre-game mood wearing an orange rubber head cover with short spikes. His trip was a Father's Day gift. He and Al Stafford of Sherwood Park, Alta., flew in via Denver, Las Vegas and Orlando. Blake McGrath of Sherwood Park was with them. He'd arrived via Seattle and Atlanta.

How Valuable Is Luongo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Sportsnet,

A source close to the Panthers says general manager Mike Keenan has begun the process of investigating what Luongo's market value is. The Vancouver Canucks will provide the most fodder for the rumour mill with Dan Cloutier and Todd Bertuzzi already speculated to be a part of any deal. The Toronto Maple Leafs, desperately in need of goaltending, will most certainly make a play. However, the team that comes up with the magic formula will do so at a stiff price.

Paris & Theodore

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

Paris Hilton swears she’s not looking for love – but did she find a little bit of lovin’ in Toronto? The actress/singer seemed quite taken by Colorado Avalanche goalie Jose Theodore at a party following the MuchMusic Video Awards. Witnesses say Hilton, 25, chatted and held hands with Theodore, a 29-year-old native of Laval, Quebec, at the Courthouse in Toronto before leaving together. The pair showed up at the Ultra club and partied until the wee hours of the morning.
