KK- Shopping & Reviews

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I have set up a Shopping & Review section on KK. This area is strictly a shopping area and it is much appreciated if you visit on a regular basis. I receive a slight commission for any sale that is made, therefore helping me continue and expand Kukla's Korner. I will occasionally update you on any new items available, but will mostly depend on you to visit that section. I don't and never will ask for any donations, but if you have an interest in the products or services offered take advantage of the offers. At times, discount coupons will be posted, along with special deals only available to KK readers. A good example is iTunes and BestBuy. Numerous KK readers have used the provided links to purchase items, and I receive a commission based on the sale of those items. It helps me, you lose nothing, and KK continues to grow the way I want it too. Thanks and now get shopping!!!

Center Ice Available

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In the USA, you can now order Center Ice on Directv, Dish Network and as of today (at least in the Detroit area) on Comcast. The earlybird special is $149.00 compared to a $129.00 price we paid last year. I believe they discounted the $20 as a thank you to the fans after the lockout year. CI has also been available in Canada for the last few weeks. image

Off-Season Lessons

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

So what have we learned in the offseason? • Neil Smith didn't like being part of a multitiered and crowded chain of command. He reacted to it with such revulsion, it was almost as if he had spotted 23 rats running around in the hallways of the Coliseum. But give him credit, the Islanders were undefeated during his tenure. • John Davidson stepped out of Hockey Night in Canada's "Hot Stove" and into the fire as president of the Blues. Actually, having only one gig instead of 12 might represent a cutback in his workload. • Cutting its ownership stake in the Canadiens to 19.9 percent, Molson Coors is showing its interest in hockey now is Light.

Blackhawks Outlook

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Blackhawk fans are able to submit their story regarding the team at Chicago Sports...

Let's see if I got this right. The Blackhawks were one of the worst, if not the worst team in the NHL. This is a very slow, unskilled team with a poor defense and power play. I hope I didn't miss anything. The management, including Dale Tallon and Bill Wirtz, were embarrassed but uplifted by the play of our young defensemen. So far, we have a third-string goalie, our top draft pick is going back to college, and we just traded our No. 1 point man from last year, Kyle Calder, for a taller, heavier defenseman who scored 12 goals last season.

Camping 101

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Wicked Bruins Fan has attended a few training camps in the past. Some tips from her include...

• Get sleep. Naps are highly recommended. Camp events start early in the morning factoring in the time for commuting, and by the end, waiting around for the last bunch of players to leave turns into a long day. If you’re not a morning person (like myself), you’re going to need all the sleep and Dunkin Donuts coffee you can get. • Be prepared to see players vanish. Once the assignments and cuts start, players start dropping like flies. Get acquainted with them early, so you’re only half disappointed when you see they are no longer there.
many more...some are Bruins related but can be generalized to meet your needs...

All Ace’s

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

So many stories, so many laughs, such a big life. So let us start, then, with those who did not know Ace Bailey at all. The ones like 4-year-old Isabel Santiago, concentrating on extracting the jelly from a donut; trailing her intravenous tubes and medical machinery behind her as though they were a feather boa or a toy of some kind.

Prospect Tourney Increases

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Traverse City Record Eagle,

The annual NHL prospects tournament makes its return to Traverse on Friday, and it's bigger and badder. OK, at least bigger. The tourney will have its largest field ever, with eight NHL teams sending their top prospects to train and play for five days. The event at Centre ICE — which had five teams last year — marks the return of St. Louis and adds Dallas and the New York Rangers.

Joe Who?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

The days of being a largely anonymous National Hockey League player are fast coming to an end for new Ottawa Senators defenceman Joe Corvo. "Yeah, I've been recognized by a couple of people," said Corvo, who arrived in Ottawa nine days ago and has been skating with his new teammates during casual workouts before training camp officially opens next week. "Like the waiters, when they see my credit card and they start asking questions."
