Malkin Remains Hot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sports Ticker via the National Post,

Malkin scored a goal and registered three assists Sunday, recording his fifth consecutive multi-point game to lead the Penguins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Last season’s Calder Trophy winner, Malkin has led Pittsburgh to a 6-2-2 record since January 18, when Crosby was hurt in a 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay.

“We’ve all seen him in practice everyday,” Penguins linemate Ryan Malone said. “We know what type of player he is. He will make all of those amazing plays you see. He’s a top-notch player.”

Malkin has eight goals and 13 assists in his last 10 games, while the Penguins (31-19-5) have catapulted into first place in the Atlantic for the first time this season.

SCREWED

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1855: video below.  Watch the replays for yourself, but we shouldn’t be surprised.  Slap shot from Lidstrom, a blast that Giguerre never saw.  Holmstrom on the fringe of the crease. Goal. Disallowed.  Game, essentially, over.  3-2 Anaheim.

A Throw Up In Your Mouth Kind of Weekend

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I guess the discussion about contracts and even the underground talk mentioning Charlie Buckets as trade bait in the event he asks too much are kind of, you know, out the window now.

I’m no math whiz, but “six to eight weeks” comes out to April 10th, or March 25th, or maybe longer and that puts everything on the table now brother.  Sundin, Jagr, Jokinen (have we heard that before?).  Of course, the prices just went up since Kenny’s working with the worst kind of bad hand: a glaring need. And, yeah, it’s glaring.

A Different Life Now

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robin Short at the Hockey News,

Every now and again, seven years after that horrible September day, Rob Cimetta closes his eyes and sees the silhouettes of heroes. The grizzled faces of New York’s bravest, climbing into their rescue gear, about to walk through death’s doorway.

“We’re running out and they’re coming in,” recalled the former NHLer of a meeting cut short by the World Trade Center alarm bells on Sept. 11, 2001. “I remember seeing a jet engine in the middle of the street, like a 100 yards from the building and we finally figure out what happened.”

Right Equals Wings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

His last words on the subject of a potential trade had Sundin remaining loyal to the end, not wanting out of Dodge. But he’s not talking about it anymore. Ditto for Fletcher. But two GMs, unwilling to speak for the record, in recent days said they believe Sundin has given his blessing to go - provided it is to the “right” team.

In this case, “right” is likely code for Detroit, a club that could win it without Sundin, and one that becomes a prohibitive favorite if he has the Winged Wheel on his chest

much more NHL talk…

A Rivalry In The Making

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pat Caputo of the Oakland Press,

There is a lot to hate about the Ducks. It starts with defenseman Chris Pronger, who has gotten the best of the Red Wings in their last two playoff departures—last season with the Ducks and during 2006 with the Edmonton Oilers.

This is a turn of events. The Red Wings controlled Pronger when he played for the St. Louis Blues. At 6-foot-6, Pronger is Brian Urlacher on skates. Yet, the Red Wings always took care of him, especially Steve Yzerman’s legendary answer to when Pronger tried to rip off his head with a check—The Captain low-bridged him out of self-defense and tore up Pronger’s knee….

he Red Wings are an Original Six team. The Ducks were founded to promote Disney.

The Red Wings are miles ahead of the Ducks in the current NHL standings, but we learned long ago what that means come playoff time—nothing.

The Defensive Dman Award

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Create an award that goes to the league’s best defensive defenseman, the Rod Langway Trophy. (The naming rights for this one are up for debate—Stevens would be another prime candidate—but the need for it is not.)

Langway, who won the Norris in 1983 and 1984 despite putting up only 65 points combined in those two seasons, was so good defensively that his candidacy surmounted his paltry offensive numbers. His 32 points in 1983 were the fewest since Bobby Orr had 31 in a half-season in 1968 and Jacques Laperriere had 31 in 1966.

Costly Mistake

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Kevin Quick merely needed to keep his head on straight and enjoy the ride, which wasn’t asking too much. He had been selected in the third round of the NHL draft. He had a scholarship to the University of Michigan. He was a freshman getting a regular shift on the second-ranked hockey team in the nation. Now?

The 19-year-old is home in Tonawanda, trying to put his career back together after getting kicked off the Michigan team for what coach Red Berenson called “a total violation of our team trust and rules.” Sources said the defenseman stole a credit card, used it as a personal piggy bank and spent thousands of dollars….

Tampa Bay selected Quick with the 78th pick overall in the 2006 draft. He signed a professional tryout contract with the Lightning’s AHL affiliate in Norfolk on Saturday. He’ll start his professional career at a fraction of what he could have pocketed in a couple years with far more experience and leverage.
