KK- You Know The Playoffs Are Close

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

IwoCPO at A2Y has docked his ship and is writing away, while Alanah at Canucks & Beyond is still in shock after Vancouver’s favorite son joined the hated Wings.  I wonder what she has in store for the return of Bert…
Also, I have been making a steady progress with the KK Shopping Section.

More on the future of KK in a week or so, but I can tell you it will only be getting bigger and better.

Please Send Me The Address

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

...to NHL Headquarters. Because I might just have a reason to send Gary Bettman some fan mail soon. It would appear that the little bugger's finally seeing the light regarding potential re-alignment and moving the Wings eastward.

Moore’s Tact

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’ve read a few articles regarding Steve Moore’s comments of yesterday.  He wants to play, but can’t.  He’s frustrated and we understand it, and he’s biting his tongue.

“I think it’s best we avoid that,” Moore said when asked if he would be able to forgive Bertuzzi.

Moore said he feels frustrated that he has been unable to overcome head injuries he suffered in the on-ice attack while Bertuzzi continues to pursue an NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings.

Just Imagine Rachel Ray…

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Onion,

NEW YORK—Flanked by Food Network president Brooke Johnson and cooking-show host Rachael Ray, Commissioner Gary Bettman announced yesterday that the NHL has opted out of its contract with the Versus cable channel (formerly the Outdoor Life Network) and has reached a long-term broadcasting deal with the Food Network starting in the 2007-08 season.

Scratch Vegas Off The List

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Reading the following story, it sounds like Vegas is not a destination for the Pens, or for any team in the near future.

from the Las Vegas Review Journal,

Thomas & Mack Center director Daren Libonati said he has not spoken to anyone from the Penguins and that the facility has no ice floor and no chiller.
He said a major league team would need corporate signage, control of suites and revenues from food and beverage sales, none of which would be available at the Thomas & Mack.
Reid said studies should be done to determine whether there would be sufficient public support for an NHL team in Las Vegas.
Given the urgency of the Penguins’ situation and the lack of an arena, Reid said the process might be too far along for Southern Nevada to make a serious play.

added 10:55am, from the Las Vegas Sun,

But the fact is Ogie Ogilthorpe is more likely to win the Federal League’s sportsmanship award before Las Vegas lands the Penguins or any other National Hockey League team.

AO Stands Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jody Vance at Slam,

Prior to being swarmed by the media throng Tuesday, my Leafs TV gig afforded me an exclusive one-on-one with Alex Ovechkin.
This was certainly an interview I won’t soon forget.
Ovechkin is a presence even in an empty NHL visitors’ dressing room: Young, yet with eyes filled with the wisdom that comes from having shouldered so much pressure in his 21 years.
We go right to the flashy yellow laces and tell-tale tinted visor on his No. 8 helmet resting on the shelf above. Fashion statements, he says, “Laces to not be like others—same with visor—I do not want to be same as everyone. To stand out.”

Chicago Thinking Tougher

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Tribune,

But as the Hawks begin a four-game trip Saturday in Phoenix, that number could rise. The Hawks are expected to recall defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Dave Koci on Thursday.
In the case of Byfuglien, he likely will replace James Wisniewski, who will have surgery Thursday to repair his right ACL, which he injured Tuesday. Wisniewski is out for the season.
Koci, on the other hand, won’t be asked to carry the puck out of the Hawks’ zone. According to the Web site hockeyfights.com, Koci has had 85 fights in four seasons in the American Hockey League, including 20 this season through Tuesday.
“He’s a big boy,” Savard said of the 6-foot-6-inch, 238-pound native of the Czech Republic.
“We’ll see next week. We may have to dance, I don’t know.”

Moore’s Goal Is To Play Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

Moore said he’s totally committed to trying to get back into the NHL.
“You’re either 100 percent committed to something or you will not be successful at it. I have not given any thought to doing anything else,” he said. “Until the doctors tell me unequivocally that I’m not coming back and I won’t ever be cleared, I guess I won’t think about it.”
He said he remains grateful for the “tremendous and uplifting” support he has received from Colorado fans. Team officials, he said, “let me know they would be there for me if I needed anything, and I hope that’s the case. But I guess that’s how it goes when your contract is up. You’re kind of on your own to deal with the situation.”

Showing Support

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

After a leopard-skin brassiere was tossed onto the ice Tuesday night in Cowan’s honour, the wags came out in full force with new, colourful monikers for Cowan, whose five goals in three games has turned him into a folk hero.
Hooter Shooter and Cowan the Brabarian are the best two. Cash Cow is pretty good. J.C. Superstar doesn’t quite have the zing.
Heavy Eric even has a song out already, Cowan Days (to Purple Haze—“Excuse me while I hit this guy”).
The centre of all this attention doesn’t seem to quite know what to make of the hip-hip-her-bra.

The Patrick Roy Model

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Matt Higgins of the New York Times,

Most goaltenders for playoff-bound N.H.L. teams are at least 6 feet tall, several speak French and nearly all play the same style. Their hockey DNA can be traced to a common ancestor, Patrick Roy….
Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in November, Roy ran the Remparts in his retirement “to give back,” he said. But many say his greatest contribution to hockey has been as a prototype for modern goaltending.
