After Seven Weeks Of The NHL Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,

The New York Islanders are the best Big Apple-area team right now. When is the last time you could say that?

Pat Quinn and Viktor Tikhonov are gone. Jean Beliveau, Gordie Howe and Bryan Murray are ailing.

On some nights, it seems like there are more media members in scrums in Montreal and Toronto than there are fans in the stands in Florida.

These are just a few of the many storylines we've seen through the first six weeks of the season, both the good and the bad.

Keeping that in mind, here is our look at the 2014-15 NHL season at the quarter point.


VIVA LAS VEGAS: The league keeps saying it is not ready for relocation and expansion. Yet this story just won't go away, especially when it seems a potential ownership group has been targeted and a possible future home that could house an NHL team is being built on the strip. It's a good bet that this situation is just a matter of "when," not "if."

continued, a good recap of what has happened through the first quarter of the season...

Detroit/Philadelphia Preview And Notes

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Not really a game preview type story, but Brendan Savage of Mlive did a Q & A with Drew Miller...

MLive: Stanley Cup Finals, overtime, Game 7 against Vancouver. You get a penalty shot. Is there anything about your brother you know that other people don't that would help you in that situation?

Miller: (laughs) I don't know. I think with all the video technology that's out there, you know what you're going to get. In that situation, I love my brother but I definitely want to score and I want to win. I don't have a specific move but definitely you're going down there 100 percent wanting to score.

MLive: Who's the one player on the team you'd least like to box?

Miller: Probably (Jonathan) Ericsson. He's big and he's got a long reach.

Action Needed In Columbus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

It is time for general manager Jarmo Kekalainen to do something.

We all know the patient, long-term plan set forth by Kekalainen and his boss, John Davidson, the president of hockey operations. “Brick by Brick” T-shirts appeared last year. They have a core of young players they want to see grow within the system. We all get it.

“We are the 5th line” T-shirts appeared this year, and Alexander Wennberg should be wearing one. He has not proved he is an NHL-caliber player, and he is on the ice 15 minutes a night. This does no service to him or the team. He should be building his confidence with minor-league Springfield.

Maybe Wennberg goes the way of Nikita Filatov — or maybe he goes the way of Ryan Johansen, who, you might recall, did not have an illustrious rookie season and has turned out pretty well. The point here, though, is not about the rookie. He is not the problem; he is merely a symptom.

The Jackets are stagnant, and they need a stir.

The David Perron Trade Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

The Edmonton Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets, two of the worst teams in the league, are working together to make a trade happen to improve their fortunes.

TSN Hockey analyst Aaron Ward is reporting that Oilers winger David Perron and Blue Jackets centre Artem Anisimov are the players being discussed for a potential trade, but there could be more players involved.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger first reported over the weekend that the Oilers were looking to deal Perron and said general manager Craig MacTavish is looking for a top line centre in return for the 26-year-old. 

Perron has two goals and eight assists in 22 games this season with the Oilers, his second year with the team. The Sherbrooke, Quebec, native has two years left on his current contract.

The overnight report: Red Wings-Flyers set-up: Wings aim for 3-in-a-row vs. road-struggling Flyers

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings laid an egg when they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers on October 25th, but--in theory--tonight's NBCSN-televised "rematch" (7:30 PM EST on FSD Plus/CSN Philly/NBCSN/97.1 FM) between an 8-9-and-3 Flyers team and the strong-on-home-ice 11-5-and-5 Wings should yield a strong opportunity for the Wings to extend their winning streak to three games for the first time this season (the Wings did go "unbeaten" in 3 via 2 wins and a shootout loss at the end of October).

In practice, the Wings are a team that tends to do a fine job of goofing up when "the odds are in their favor," and while the Flyers have lost 5 straight games, including a 1-0 shootout decision to the Islanders on Monday, Steve Mason stopped 46 shots in that effort, Jakub Voracek is always good against the Wings and is tied for the league lead in scoring...

And this is one of those, "The underdog is due" games that scares me (for lack of a better term).

The Flyers' scribes didn't cover Tuesday's practice (Michael Raffl gave an interview to the Flyers' website, but he's got a "lower-body injury"), and as NJ.com's Randy Miller noted, the Flyers theoretically might be preoccupied with this weekend's games...

The good, the political and the speculatory

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

I've thought about putting these articles in the overnight report--I was quite frankly not up to an evening entry as this whole physical endurance thing is affected by depression, and I'm still coming up for air as it were--but they don't belong in a Wings-Flyers spiel, not even a rambly one.

This is the best part of my job, reporting on the kind of things that remind us that the players who chase pucks for a living make their biggest impacts off the ice. The Red Wings' Community Relations Department posted several Instagram photos from the Wings' annual pre-Holiday Season visit to Children's Hospital on Tuesday evening...
