Get Your Tickets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Last year Wings Senior VP Jimmy Devellanno told the Detroit fans the Wings had a season ticket waiting list of 16,000 people. What happened?

One of the Red Wings' Original Six rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs, skate into Joe Louis Arena only once during the regular season. Due to the high demand for this game, a limited number of seats will be made available to those fans who take advantage of the 'Original Six' Plan. All you have to do is simply select a minimum of 6 single, individual seats* in any variation (6 to 1 game, 2 to 3 games, 3 to 2 games, etc.) and you can guarantee yourself two side-by-side seats** for the December 9 game vs. Toronto! Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of one of the most sought-after games of the season!

Moose Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TBM at NBC Sports,

Welcome to the post-lockout NHL, where getting as many teams into as many cities as possible has been sacrificed in the name of more divisional games. But not for much longer, puckheads. Sources are whispering in the Moose's big floppy ears that a change to the NHL schedule is coming next season. The league is getting a lot of heat from Western Conference clubs who simply aren't seeing enough of the Eastern teams, and so starting next season will cut some divisional games to ensure that all teams will play each other at least once a season.

Refreshing Attitude

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Press (alternative newspaper),

What’s so cool about the NHL is that we are witnessing it at a time when the players consider themselves stakeholders in the league’s survival. These athletes are committed to the game itself as much, or more, than they are to their own paychecks. They take immense pride in the product they put on the ice, night in and night out. Once the public gets a good look and listen to these guys, they’ll find a refreshing attitude—a true love of the game—that’s seldom found in other pro sports.

Two Weeks Into The Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Shawn P. Roarke at NHL.com,

Here are a few observations from the first 14 days of the season: * Dallas goalie Marty Turco is off to a scalding-hot start this season. Plus, he is one of the most well-spoken athletes in our game today. In fact, his own coach, Dave Tippett, called him the most normal goalie he has been associated it, a compliment all goalies should aspire to. * Where are the fashion police when you need them? The concept of wearing unfashionable -- sometimes downright ugly -- articles of clothing as a badge of honor is reaching epidemic proportions in the NHL.

Life After The Trap

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

...Like the notion that the Wild have completely changed their style of play now that they've acquired high-profile talented players Kim Johnsson, Pavol Demitra and Mark Parrish. They haven't. Or the belief Lemaire would still rather have his players never leave their own zone, and if they must, they leave one at a time and only for a moment. He actually doesn't mind if they leave the zone as long as they come back. Further, there is no truth to the rumor that Lemaire signed his extension on the condition that his players don't give up an odd-man rush for the next six months. But the thing about urban legends is that, well, they become legend or take on the appearance of fact. Lemaire knows that.

Sabres Jersey Is #1

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dan Steinberg at his D.C Sports Bog,

Someone from the NHL, who knows of my love for merchandise sales figures, just e-mailed to tell me that the new Sabres jersey is the No. 1 selling jersey on NHL.com, and that since the new logo debuted in September, Sabres stuff has accounted for 10 percent of all sales on NHL.com. Also note that, from Sept. 23-Oct. 16, sales of Buffalo Sabres merchandise was up almost 900% compared to the same period a year ago.

On The Same Page

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Hockey Refs,

The National Hockey League keeps the 30 NHL franchises under the new jurisdiction, while the IIHF enforces low-tolerance among the 64 member federations. This is also the first season that all top-7 European leagues will follow the same guidelines, which will make it so much easier for the 14 referees who take part in the IIHF Referee Exchange Program. Although we are happy with the new era, we are perfectly aware that we are far from perfect. This is still a learning phase for the national associations, the leagues, the players, officials and referees. Probably the most important message to get across is that this is not about zero-tolerance, as many reporters like to describe this because it happens to be a catchy phrase.
