The Other Top Rookie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Star-Telegram,

It's hard to believe now, but 50 points and nine shootout goals ago, Stars rookie Jussi Jokinen was worried about making the team. For a guy who's listed in the back of the Stars' media guide -- with all the prospects, not up front with the big-league roster -- Jokinen has been a pleasant surprise for Dallas all season.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A Waste Of Good Cap Money

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

Now that the Ed Belfour era in Toronto is over - and make no mistake, it is over - two things need to be said. The first, and perhaps most important, is that Belfour is a sure-fire Hall of Famer... The second, though, is that the Toronto Maple Leafs made a huge mistake, perhaps the mother of all errors, when they signed Belfour to a new contract in the summer of 2004.

Pens May Change Front Office

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

As the Pittsburgh Penguins continue to lobby for a new arena to replace out-of-date Mellon Arena, there is growing sentiment in Pittsburgh and beyond that a modernization of the team's management structure is also overdue. ...Patrick's contract is expiring this summer, offering the perfect opportunity to part company with a man who does deserve a graceful exit because of his past successes. The guessing around the league is that Patrick will not be rehired, but no one knows for sure. The word is that he has a decent relationship with Penguins CEO Ken Sawyer.
read on...Kevin also states the Pens could be the like the Ottawa Senators in a few years...

Crosby Just Wants To Play Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sports Illustrated,

Sidney Crosby rarely turns down an interview request, and the 18-year-old rookie phenom is always polite and accommodating with the media. Yet even he became a bit aggravated when he was asked again Thursday if he's a marked man in the NHL. "I think it's kind of getting old talking about it, to be honest with you," Crosby said of an alleged slight against him by officials and other teams. "It's something where we just have to play hockey and not worry about the officials, who we have total confidence in."

Coach Maven

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

So, what must the Devils do to remain alive? For starters, Martin Brodeur MUST play as flawless a game as possible. Secondly, it’s imperative that New Jersey score the first goal – for two reasons: A. Simply to prove that they are capable of getting on the sheet; and B. To instill some confidence in what has been a pop-gun offense. Do what Ottawa does; stand your biggest player in front of the net and just fire away...

Jump On Joe’s Back

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Fox Sports,

This is the time of year when special players rise to the occasion and that's exactly what Joe Sakic has been doing in Colorado for the Avalanche — proving once again he's no ordinary Joe. Realizing that his team is not yet assured a spot in the postseason with only 13 games to go, Sakic has turned up his game a few notches in the last seven tilts, registering six goals and four assists, while leading Colorado to a 4-2-1 record.
