Luc Has Big Plans For The Kings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from LA Downtown News,

Robitaille foresees a not-too-distant future where the adage “Think King” is just as common as “Think Blue.”

“We are the biggest market. We should be the [NHL] team that everybody wants to copy,” Robitaille said. “It’s a challenge and it’s a lot of fun for me to build this organization that I love so much.”

That’s a line of goods that he’s definitely selling, not renting.

Marc Crawford Talks Booing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

However, Crawford thought the prevalence of new media — round-the-clock highlights packages, an endless parade of Internet information — has heightened scrutiny everywhere around the NHL. And in places such as Toronto and Montreal, the attention is so great as to become almost suffocating.

“Truthfully, I think it’s compounded, especially in hockey markets, by the volume of information that’s available — with blogs, with all the replays, those things become such a big fabric of hockey life,” said Crawford. “It’s a different environment now than even 10 years ago.”

A Conversation with Keith Jones

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Today I had a chance to chat with Keith Jones—“Jonesy”—about his 8 year NHL career with the Washington Capitals, the Colorado Avalanche and Philadelphia Flyers.  Jonesy was good enough to share the story of his unusual journey to the NHL, as well as his media work these days with Versus.

Jonesy has a book out, co-authored with ESPN’s John Buccigross (whom Paul interviewed earlier), titled “Jonesy: Put Your Head Down and Skate: The Improbable Career of Keith Jones.”  The proceeds from this book go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a Philadelphia-area charity which helps the childhood victims of cancer.

The interview can be heard on the flash player below, (or you can download the mp3 audio file here).

Home At Last

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Yahoo,

Cory Murphy muttered two words.

“Lyndon Slewidge,” said the Florida Panthers defenceman.

Murphy’s long hockey odyssey, which began two minutes from where Scotiabank Place was built and included six years in Europe, finally comes full circle Saturday night when the Ottawa native stands for the national anthem before a game against the Senators - performed as usual by the Ontario Provincial Police constable Lyndon Slewidge.

Back To Juniors Or Not

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

Heading into the weekend, just six junior-eligible players remained on NHL rosters: Boston’s Milan Lucic, Chicago’s Patrick Kane, Edmonton’s Sam Gagner, Minnesota’s James Sheppard, Phoenix’s Peter Mueller, and David Perron of the Blues.

Every one of them thinks he belongs in the NHL. None would have lasted this long without that belief. But players don’t always know what’s best for them. To be honest, neither do the teams who employ them. And that’s why the decisions regarding their fates are so open to second-guessing.

Could Richard Be The “Rocket” Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

The question has been asked before and today, on the 50th anniversary of the Rocket’s 500th goal, it bears asking again: could Maurice Richard have been successful in today’s NHL?

Was he a good enough skater? Would he have been big enough to ward off defencemen? Would his legendary temper have bubbled over and gotten the better of him in an 82-game schedule?
