Will Chicago Fans Come Back To A Winning Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

No one gets much pleasure out of seeing Chicago as a perpetual NHL black hole. Yawney is experienced enough to know that if the team can win consistently, then the rest of the renaissance should fall naturally into place. "I don't care what organization you're in," said Yawney. "If you win, they'll come back. It didn't happen overnight, the fans going away, and we're not going to put them back in the building overnight either. But it is an Original Six franchise that's a bit of a sleeping giant."

No After-Effects For Downey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

The news on Aaron Downy's condition is good. According to RDS, the Montreal Canadiens forward is feeling much better and is not experiencing any after-effects of a severe concussion suffered earlier this week. The report claims the only obstacle preventing Downey from getting back on the ice at this point is medical clearance.

Turco = Kenny Rogers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Linda Cohn of ESPN,

Do you think Marty Turco is a fan of the Detroit Tigers? Not because he is a Michigan alum, but because he can relate to one of the Tigers' players. Not just any player, but the one who proved everyone wrong; the one who's done the unthinkable in the postseason; the one who is on an unexpected mission to change his legacy and walk away from this game with his head held up, not down. Who can Turco relate to? None other than Kenny Rogers.

Shanny In The City

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Shanahan has chosen to live in bustling Manhattan rather than the 'burbs, nods to the doorman every morning as he walks his twins to pre-school, has his chocolate Lab set up with a Central Park dog walker — a Devils fan, no less — and is gradually finding a level of comfort in the Big Apple. "It's a different way of living," he said. "I guess I like playing in places in the NHL where the volume is turned up." Shanahan, with 605 career goals in his hip pocket, returns to a hometown tomorrow night where 500-goal men are generously celebrated.

Pointing At Spezza

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

Jason Spezza is usually a sharp-dressed young man, but now he's acquired an unwanted fashion accessory. A bull's eye. The Senators' young centre has turned into the target for Senators fans' discontent in what can now officially be described as their club's horrendous start to this season, made official with last night's 2-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche before 17,728 at Scotiabank Place.

A Vote For ESPN

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Post,

October 20, 2006 -- To: Gary Bettman From: Andrew Marchand Re: Has The NHL Season Started? CC: Peter Puck Dear Commish: We are not sure if anyone even realizes the NHL season has begun. Sure, the true, loyal hockey fans are on board, but the fair-weather NHL fan looks at the league and sees melted ice.

Nashville Can Compete With CBA In Place

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CamWest News Service via Canada.com,

The NHL, it would appear, has done its part for Nashville. Now its up to Nashville to do its part for the NHL. "There's no question the CBA has done a lot for small-market teams," says Poile, the Predators' razor-sharp general manager "In '03-04 we played Detroit in the playoffs. Our payroll was US$23-million. Theirs was US$78-million. I don't care what kind of business you're in. You can't compete when there's that kind of disparity. "A market this size can support an NHL franchise now. We're grateful for what we receive in revenue sharing. But if we didn't have that, it would be extremely difficult to sustain this business in Nashville."

Testing Contiued On DiMaio

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

Rob DiMaio's future is still in limbo - for another three weeks, anyway. The Lightning right wing was examined Wednesday by Michael Collins, a concussion expert at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Tampa Bay trainer Tommy Mulligan said DiMaio was given cognitive tests in which he answered questions on a computer that measured the time he took to respond and his memory. DiMaio will be tested again in three weeks, Mulligan said. The results will be analyzed and determinations made as to his treatment and prognosis.

Ducks Being Noticed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

The Ducks, who have not lost in regulation heading into Friday’s home game against the Minnesota Wild, are hoping that success can help them become more than a novelty in Southern California’s crowded sports market. “People are paying attention to our team now,” said Brian Burke, the general manager and executive vice president of the Ducks. “I went all of last year without being recognized once, and now it’s happening routinely. I’m amazed at the change in a year.”
