Who Is Eklund, er Susan, oops sorry, maybe Flyguy31 or..

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

...Poulin, or the truth or possibly the Hockey Mod.
You see Dwayne (Eklund) is all of them (make sure to check the comments in bold, they are all from him).  Pay special attention to some of the comments, where he makes himself look like the greatest person in the world.
When I asked him about this, furious that he attempted to deceive KK readers, he told me his IP address was stolen.
I have 100% it is him, as a matter of fact, 200%, as do other hockey blogs that he has pulled the same stunts on.
Do you want more lies and fabrications, just ask him, you will be amazed…

For the record, I tried to handle this behind the scenes with Dwayne, but the lies just continued.

Oilers On The Fence

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Edmonton — Buyer or seller?
Edmonton Oilers GM Kevin Lowe will be asked that question countless times before the NHL’s Feb. 27 trading deadline, but with less than three weeks to go until then, he doesn’t have an answer.
While the need for a puck-moving defenceman, a history of deadline deals and more than $3 million in salary-cap space suggest Lowe will be a buyer, a tight market and the inability to contend for Western Conference playoff spot could make him a seller.
These days, Lowe is neither.

Rod Likes Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Montreal Gazette,

Rod Stewart has starred at the Colisee here a few times over the years.
But the British rocker will be just another hockey father watching from the stands when his son’s team hits the ice during the 48th edition of the Quebec International Peewee Hockey Tournament, which begins at the Colisee today.
“Having somebody famous like Rod Stewart and his (ex-) wife, (U.S. model) Rachel Hunter, is great for us,” said Patrick Dom, the longtime director-general of the tournament. “There’s no price for publicity like that.”

continued... Kirk Gibson will be there too…

No Protection Needed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox at ESPN,

Compared to the abuse Bobby Orr and Maurice Richard and Mike Bossy dealt with over the course of their splendid careers, young Mr. Crosby is being treated with velvet gloves.
People love to repeat the silly NHL cliché that players used to respect each other in the good old days and don’t now, but talk to players who played then and they laugh at the very notion.
To them, modern NHLers are all chummy, well-fed union brethren who share golf games, and sometimes accountants, between playoff contests. Back in the day, they’d have fights in All-Star Games.

Looking At Ryan Miller

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marcie Garcia at NHL.com,

Looking into Ryan Miller’s brown eyes is like diving into a dark sea of intensity. But put aside the serious demeanor that goes hand-in-hand with leading the Buffalo Sabres to the best record in the Eastern Conference, and Miller looks like the average 26-year-old. He’s tall, slight in frame, with shaggy disheveled hair that falls beyond his ears. If brushing past Miller on Buffalo’s bustling Chippewa Street, he looks more rocker than an athlete. But the assumption wouldn’t be a far stretch.

Should The Caps Keep Brashear

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tarik El-Bashir’s Blog, the Capitals Insider,

Today’s question is this: Should the Caps re-sign enforcer Donald Brashear? And if so, for how long and how much? He earns $1 million this season and becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1….
I would go as far as to say that his presence on the bench - just him sitting there with that scowl - allows Ovechkin and Semin to play a little bigger and forces would-be thugs to show a little restraint.

more... I am not sure how I feel about this.  Come playoff time, would Brashear even see the ice with a team like the Wings?

The Hockey Doctor

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

A quarter-inch may seem small to many, but it’s rather significant in the NHL when it comes to equipment.
That’s the curvature increase the NHL adopted for its players’ hockey stick blades this season – up from a half inch to three-quarters of an inch.
The expansion gives players better control of the puck when they shoot or pass.
It also gave one local entrepreneur – North Huntingdon’s Brian Poe – a significant boost to his business, The Hockey Doctor, Inc.

Assume The Salary

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Adam Proteau’s Blog at the Hockey News,

“I guarantee you there are at least 10-12 GMs in this league who are infuriated over the CBA,” the agent said. “I definitely think you’ll see alterations or adjustments to it this summer, at least to allow teams to assume a portion of the salary of the player they trade away. As long as you’re under the (salary) cap, why should it matter?”
Good question.

Leading Belarus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the KYIV Post,

More than one Westerner caught in a career rut back home has headed off to Eastern Europe in search of a new start.
And 49-year-old Ohio native Curt Fraser might seem typical if it weren’t for his impressive past as a hockey pro.
Only a few years ago, Fraser was head coach for the Atlanta Thrashers, following 12 years as a left winger for the Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Black Hawks and then Minnesota North Stars.
But at the end of 2002, he was dismissed by the Thrashers, and his job prospects looked dim – at least until he was offered the chance to take charge of the Belarusian national hockey team, the darling of Europe’s last dictator, Alexander Lukashenko.

Inside Info

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Good morning troopers. As Paul pointed out, I’ll be back on a regular posting schedule starting Saturday morning.  But for now, I noticed something interesting and thought I’d share.

You all followed the “Implosion” and “No, really…they’re going to implode soon” stories out of Klessel’s Boy Band Tribute Page.  Young Andy Strickland intimated that he had a “source” in the Wing organ-I-zation feeding him quality info pointing to disfunction in the Wing room.

Ok.  We disputed that, then shot it to hell thanks to help from our DD’s.

Here’s a little more evidence that it was crap.  Today Strickland posted a long manifesto on potential trades, showcasing the fact that he’s not just a Detroit insider, but that his ear is to the ground in a plethora of NHL cities. 

So, it struck me as odd that as he discussed Phoenix, Columbus, Boston and Edmonton (in addition to St. Louis) he made no mention of his adopted Red Wings.

Don’t you think that the same “insider” feeding him nuggets regarding the Implosion would also have a bit to say about trade talk in Hockeytown?

Back on Saturday.  See you then.
