Selanne Lighting Up The League

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

No player has more points since the Olympic break than Selanne (34 in 22 games) — not Jaromir Jagr, not Joe Thornton, not the rookie sensation Alexander Ovechkin — which represents an astonishing turnaround for a player who thought he might have to retire a year ago because of a serious injury to his left knee. "You want to make your own decisions and go out on your own terms," Selanne explained, with his trademark smile on his face. "I always said, 'the toughest part about retiring one day is if you have to do it because of injury.' That's not the case with me right now.

Detroit Getting The Love

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Jes at Hockey Rants thanks the Wings for beating the Oilers last night thereby keeping the Canucks in the playoff hunt. Then Jes has this to say-

Your city is still a rotting cesspool of death, disease, and depravity, but we appreciate your efforts nonetheless.
I would like to invite Jes to take a tour of the city with me, I am sure I can point out the many points of interest he has not visited while in the Detroit area. Then we have Vancouver Ops Ed saying they too love Detroit, now that's more like it folks!

Canes Fans Respond To Playoff Question

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Triangle Business Journal,

The Triangle Business Journal's nonscientific poll April 5 through April 11 attempted to measure our readers' plans - or lack of plans - regarding the Carolina Hurricanes' home playoff games this season. Our readers were asked, "Do you plan to purchase playoff hockey tickets?" In total, 56 percent of the 206 readers who responded to the poll, or 115 respondents, indicated they will not attend the playoff games either because they don't care for hockey, the cost of attending is too high or they plan to watch the games on TV instead. About 28 percent of those polled, or 58 voters, indicated they don't care for hockey and don't plan to attend the playoff games at the RBC Center.

The Blue Jackets Have Filled The Gap

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

A tradition has been born, without the pretense of the "hockey town" moniker of Detroit or the national passion of Canada. We are what we are — a city in love with a college football team and still big enough to embrace the NHL. The Blue Jackets have finally made it. I’m not talking about the playoffs. I’m not that ignorant. And this isn’t a sports column, either. Fan that I am, I still can’t figure out when a player is off-side.

Sharks Want The #5 Spot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

Pardon the Sharks if they're contemplating how they can improve their playoff position without having clinched a spot yet. Winning five consecutive games has a way of boosting optimism. With four games left, the Sharks can punch their ticket to the postseason with a victory over Vancouver either tonight or Thursday. ``We're in pretty good shape,'' Coach Ron Wilson said. ``We want to finish as high as we can. Our goal is to run the table here. The hardest game is always the next one that you play. My job is to keep everybody focused and in the moment and not get too carried away with ourselves.''

My Head Is Spinning

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Eric McErlain at Off Wing Opinion has experienced the same frustrations many of us have had in dealing with Center Ice, TiVo, DirecTV and Comcast. All of these companies need to start working in unison and as Eric states, the NHL should be asking some questions. On a sidenote to this, I am still hearing OLN and Dish are still trying to work out their differences in order to bring OLN back to Dish Network in time for the playoffs.
