Edmonton Or Bust

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

It has been a week or so since we last visited Losse Change at the Hockey News. Today LC is all Oilers.

I might as well cut right to the chase. Like it or not, we are about to see another championship banner unfurled fairly soon at Rexall Reach Centre or North Boogie Wonderland Place. Let’s just say Edmonton. Can you feel it building? Since giving the Wings their recall notice, the Oilers have been living off a steady diet of West Coast seafood and cartoon poultry

Free Agent Primer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chuck Gormley of NHL.com,

While the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes battle it out in the Eastern Conference Finals this week -- anyone who picked these two teams to be playing in mid-May back in September should be granted an interview as the Islanders' next general manager -- 13 other conference teams are examining their rosters for 2006-07. This week, we'll take a quick peek where they stand with their free agents:

Edmonton Has Two Issues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

Heading into tonight's Game 3 of the Western Conference final, the Oilers are once again battling a nasty 'flu bug that is proving a lot more difficult to shake than the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. At today's morning skate, several Oilers were absent or told not to practice. Edmonton head coach Craig MacTavish wouldn't do an exact body count for the media and instead tried to put a positive spin on the situation.... As for beer crisis, bar owners on Whyte Ave., the city's party strip, are saying they're running dangerously low. Oiler fans have consumed so much alcohol that the bar owners have sent out emergency keg requests.

Pronger Leading Oilers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Around the NHL, it's hard to think of Chris Pronger as anything other than an Edmonton Oiler. That wasn't the case in early April, when a struggling Edmonton team left Savvis Center with a 2-1 loss to the Blues and with its playoff aspirations in limbo. But after backing into the postseason, the Oilers have become a strong contender for their sixth Stanley Cup and first since 1990.

Finding The Right Mix

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,

The L.A. Kings have hired a credible GM and coach, but will they give those men the right tools to work with? On the surface, it seems like a win-win situation. Lombardi is a well-respected hockey man who generated a name for himself with some solid work in building the San Jose Sharks into a credible National Hockey League franchise. He followed that up by then picking up some new and different kinds of experience by spending time in the inner circle of the Philadelphia Flyers. Crawford comes with a Stanley Cup on his resume, a respected tenure in two NHL cities (Denver and Vancouver), one of only two head coaches for Team Canada in the Olympics since that venue went pro and a long and mostly successful resume as a career coach. So they should win right?

Who Is Tom Benjamin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Christy at Behind The Jersey tries to find out what Tom Benjamin is all about...

What first attracted you to the sport of hockey? Again we can blame my Dad. Every Saturday night, it was Hockey Night in Canada. In those days, the game was picked up in progress about halfway through the first period. Dad watched Bugs Bunny with me until HNIC picked up the game and then I watched hockey with him. It was the only night of the week we got to eat in front of the TV. Mom always served burgers. It was great.

Game 3 Will Be Huge

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Blog of Ron Francis,

The Canes for most of the first 2 games were the better team, but the series is tied with the next 2 games in Buffalo. The Canes obviously need to win at least 1 of the next 2 games but the pressure would be greater on them to win game 4 if they were down 2-1 after game three, and conversely, the pressure would be greater on Buffalo if they were down 2-1 with game five looming in Raleigh.
