Fischer Has A Goal In Mind

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from City News,

Fifteen months ago, Fischer was playing for the Detroit Red Wings when he collapsed on the bench after his heart suddenly stopped beating. Thanks to quick thinking medical personnel, and the use of a defibrillator, he survived.
Now he’s fighting to make defibrillators mandatory in all public places.
“I had no heart rate,” he recalls. “I had no rhythm. I had no blood going through my body.”
“I was out. I don’t remember anything at all.”

Sidney Remembers His Roots

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from KDKA,

Like most successful people at the top of his or her game, Sidney Crosby exudes a focus and intensity that has him riding high.
Crosby says his parents helped him get to where he is now – teaching him that there’s more to life than hockey. “Just not take anything for granted, that’s what my parents told me,” Crosby adds.
“It’s always stuck with me, no matter what success you’ve had—you don’t forget what got you there.”

read on and a one-on-one video interview with Sid.  Long interview but very good.

Goodbye Peter

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steven Lienert of the Phanatic Magazine,

With a ‘leader’ like Forsberg, it’s no wonder the Flyers are the worst team BY FAR in the NHL.
In fact, without Joe Sakic, Forsberg wouldn’t be regarded as highly as he is.
Without Sakic donning the ‘C’ in Denver, Forsberg wouldn’t have, couldn’t have led the Avs to two Stanley Cup titles. Without Sakic, Forsberg would have been exactly what he is in Philadelphia: A whiny prima-donna that used an ill-fitting skate as an excuse not play for the worst team in hockey.

Former NHLer Janney Coaching The Cotton Kings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lubbock Online,

At a news conference held Tuesday, the Lubbock Cotton Kings introduced former NHL star Craig Janney as their new coach.
The 39-year-old Janney, who was a playmaking NHL center for 12 seasons but has no prior coaching experience, is charged with turning around a team that has won only four of its last 16 games.
Janney, who never played a game at hockey’s minor-league level, said he’s been hired on an interim basis.
“I’m excited to get behind the bench and see if I can do it,” said Janney, a Connecticut native who had been living in Phoenix. “... I got this chance, and we’ll see how it goes.”

Connolly Has Stress Fracture

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via the Globe and Mail,

Tim Connolly will miss at least a week of on-ice workouts because of a stress fracture in his leg, the latest setback for the Buffalo Sabres centre who’s missed more than nine months with concussion-related headaches.
Coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday that tests revealed a break in a bone just below Connolly’s knee after the player complained of soreness that developed since he began practicing with the team 10 days ago.
“Talk about bad luck. He gets slapped with it again,” said Ruff, who did not say which leg Connolly hurt.

Wings Are Being Watched

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ray Slover at the Sporting News,

What do the Coyotes have to offer? It’s probably too much to expect them to serve up Shane Doan, their captain and a heart-and-soul guy who would look great in the Wings uniform. It would be foolish to ship Doan out of Phoenix.
But, Doan is in talks with Coyotes brass about a new deal, one that could let him finish his career with the only team he’s known. However, if those talks fail the Coyotes would be foolish not to explore options for Doan.
The Coyotes also have Owen Nolan to serve up as a rental. The Wings got a first-hand look at the Nolan on Feb. 7 when the Coyotes played in Detroit.

The Maven Covers The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at MSG Network,

• Those who believe that Rob Blake will be moved by the Kings have another think coming. For starters, the 37-year-old defenseman has a no-trade pact plus he’s in the first year of a two-year, $12 million contract that carries a $ 6 million salary-cap figure.
• The annual NHL agents’ confab in Toronto last week inspired much talk about which reps do support Ted Saskin and who’s against the NHLPA leader. Two of the most respected agents in the biz, Don Meehan and Don Baizley, back Saskin and that should give him an edge in the ugly union Civil War.

Leafs Memories

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Spin, the blog of Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

This is a team, ladies and gentlemen, that has tried mightily to match the Montreal Canadiens for sense of ceremony in recent years, and has almost always failed.
The closing of the Montreal Forum received raves.
The closing of Maple Leaf Gardens, by contrast, was a long-winded, confusing evening, with the punctuation point a curious white flag that was supposed to be representative of Leaf history, one supposes. Players milled about on the ice handing it to one another, seemingly uncertain when the ceremony was supposed to end.

All Chelios

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A quick hitter from Sports Illustrated,

What was your most embarrassing moment?
In Buffalo [in 1983] after warmups I left the rink through the Zamboni doors. I ended up getting into a fight with the Zamboni driver because I went the wrong way.

Favorite off-day activity?
Fishing.
