The Good Guy Charade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

...Even Flames President Ken King has said that Bertuzzi, having paid his penalty (an indefinite suspension that amounted to 20 NHL games, approximately $500,000 in lost salary, plus assault charges that yielded a year’s probation with community service and no criminal record), deserves a second chance. Despite polls that indicate a split opinion in that regard, King maintains that fans in Calgary are willing to give it to the notorious forward.

Funny, but I can’t help but wonder who speaks for Steve Moore.

Moore can’t say much on his own. The matter, more than four years removed from the terrible event, has still not made its way into court. Because of that, there is a moratorium regarding public comments on the case in Canada.

New Coach, Same Results

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Stoda of the Palm Beach Post,

The Florida Panthers epitomize the old saying that the more things change, the more they remain the same.

And as their new season dawns - Florida opens Friday night at Carolina, and begins its home schedule Saturday night against Atlanta in BankAtlantic Center - the outlook for the Panthers looks numbingly familiar.

hey’ve changed coaches yet again, but there’s no reason to assume the Panthers will be appreciably different under Peter DeBoer than they were for three years under Jacques Martin, now solely the team’s general manager.

Now Is The Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

On this day, each and every active NHLer who has ever let you down in the past has an opportunity to redeem himself. Today, nagging and/or recurring injuries have yet to nag or recur.

Now is the time you can leave aside your naked contempt for certain league bigwigs; the time to plot out the ideal revenge on behalf of your favorite team or player who was done wrong last year; the time you’re not unconsciously grinding down your teeth because there’s less than a week to go before the regular season fantasy hockey pool is over and you’re three points out of second place and you’ve got Martin Havlat on your team and him and his paper-mache shoulder are uncharacteristically rushing into corners like Dale Tallon dropped a contract extension there.

Russia An Option For Berard

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of Mucking and Grinding,

Unable to find a job in the NHL, former No. 1 NHL draft pick Bryan Berard is probably headed to Russia to play in the Continental Hockey League (KHL).

Berard is still waiting for some NHL teams to finalize their plans, but his agent, Tom Laidlaw, confirmed KHL teams are expressing interest in the puck-moving defenseman.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, needing a veteran defenseman, considered Berard, but then decided to stay with their current group.

Just Strange

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Former Buffalo Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk accidentally shot himself in the chin Tuesday with a .22-caliber rifle at his Fish Springs residence, according to the Record-Courier of Nevada.

Malarchuk, 47, was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno by helicopter. Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were investigating the incident Wednesday to determine if the shooting was accidental, the paper said….

Helping Bettman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

So there are now limits to what he can do to improve the game. That’s assuming, of course, that he knows what needs to be done, and that in itself is a dubious proposition. So in order to help out the commissioner and point him in the right direction, here are five things that need to be fixed in his league.

1. Get a better TV deal….

2. Get rid of the weasels….
