All Nash

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q & A from David Amber of ESPN with Rick Nash,

Q: You're 21. What's the biggest downside to having a real job? A: Missing out on all the college parties that all my buddies are going to. I call my friends on a Friday night and they're going out to some big kegger and I'm going to bed at 9 o'clock because we have a pregame skate early Saturday. That's not fun, but there is way more upside than downside for me.

Sharks Ready To Make A Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

Tonight at HP Pavilion, the Sharks play Edmonton -- the team directly ahead of them in the Western Conference standings. Which means that when they wake up Friday morning, they'll be anywhere from four to eight points out of a playoff spot. Quite a range. Get used to it. All 39 remaining games this season are against Western Conference foes. And -- with the exception of five against bottom-dwellers Chicago, Columbus and St. Louis -- all are four-point affairs with oversize playoff implications.

Theodore Taking On Responsibility

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

When GM Bob Gainey took over head coaching duties Saturday, he said he wanted some of his players to be better. Theodore's name was among those mentioned. "Jose's a very proud guy and he's a competitor but we all have our periods when we're not right there on the mark," said Gainey yesterday. "I thought there could have been other players I could have mentioned but some of the guys I mentioned are some of our best players. "I didn't say they were playing poorly, I said they could play better. I think all of them would agree that was true." Theodore admitted as much. "There was no doubt about it. I wanted to do more, I wanted more responsibilities," said Theodore.

Penguins May Be Sold

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Penguins owner Mario Lemieux said yesterday that he and his partners have been approached by "a few groups" interested in purchasing the franchise and that he plans to begin negotiating with them. "We don't have a deal," he said. "We're just starting the process." Even if the team is sold, Mr. Lemieux said, the new owners will be bound by agreements he and his partners have struck. That includes a promise to remain in Pittsburgh if a coalition assembled by the Penguins is awarded the license to run a slots parlor Downtown.

Let Cherry Carry The Flag

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Although not really hockey related, leave it to Don Cherry to get the dander up. You may have heard Canada is having a difficult time finding a person to carry the Canadian Flag at the opening ceremonies in Turin... from the Toronto Star,

A combination of circumstances, it seems, is limiting the number of high-profile athletes the Canadian Olympic Committee will be able to choose from in selecting a flag-bearer. Gold-medal winning speed skater Catriona Le May Doan, who carried the flag for Canada at the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City, says Canadians should understand why some athletes don't want the job. "It's a long day, it's a big process," she said during an interview with CBC Newsworld. "That can fatigue them. Hockey commentator Don Cherry doesn't agree. "The thing is, they don't care," he said. "That nonsense about getting prepared — how long does it take? A little walk around. "Come out and say you don't care . . . but don't say `It will upset my performance.' That's ridiculous."

Eruzione Still Believes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sports Illustrated,

Do you believe in Life After Miracles? Ask Mike Eruzione, the captain of the 1980 U.S. hockey team, which pulled off the greatest upset in Olympic history. Eruzione laughs about the wave he has ridden since that day. In a typical year he makes between 40 to 60 appearances before corporate entities and charities. He gets paid to play golf, watch sporting events, eat, wave and tell people his story as if he were reliving it for the first time in 25 years.
