Ouch Toronto

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

It's not going to be a good night in Toronto, the Leafs are down 8-0 to Nashville at home with about 12 minutes to play in the 3rd at the time of this post.



The Wings play in Winnipeg on Thursday night then head to Toronto for a Saturday night game.

Babcok may want to lay low until the puck drops.

Wings Look Solid In 5-0 Win Over Columbus

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

Probably just the type of game the Wings needed.

Get the lead early, keep skating and move on to Winnipeg.

Nice to see Jurco and Helm score too.

It has been a long few days for me so your turn to comment.

Also, if you are wondering about George, this tweet from him should explain things.

All five goals are below...

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from Pa.-made in Detroit

There's a saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But something is broken on this Team, and it is called consistency, and it has been an ongoing problem for some time. How we are managing to stay somewhere in the middle of the pack is puzzling, considering how we are hot one night, ice cold the next. This type of play is unacceptable to many Wing's Fans. 

We deserve better. We demand better.

I'm going to hope that tonight we can get the BJ, instead of the usual sucking the Wings have been doing. Uncle Mike has said that he is to blame for not being ready, prepared. I say it's a two way street. He isn't on the ice missing passes and letting goals in. He does draw up the game plan however, so if the plan isn't panning, then change the plan.

Consistency. Fix it!

original post was on 11/17/14 at 4:44pm, bringing this up to the top of KK so everyone has a chance to win the big prize tonight.  Roster must be set by 7:00pm ET tonight.

We have a $100 on the line for Tuesday's BoltDraft/KK Fantasy hockey game.  Did I mention the game is free?

I won the last game and declined the winning prize so it has been rolled over to this game.

It is easy to play, pick a one forward, one defenseman and one goalie and watch how the game plays out.

Also, if need be, use pass code "kukla6" at the top of the BoltDraft page.

Scoring rules are below and for those of you who had a few questions regarding the last game, your answer is here.

The NHL GMs Discussed Video Review Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

There are three ideas that were once again brought up Tuesday:

-- A coach’s challenge, like in football where a coach can ask for a video review
-- Simply giving the Toronto war room an expanded list of plays it can review
-- Putting a TV monitor in the penalty box for referees to review plays they want a second look

The monitor in the penalty box has sizeable support among many GMs, but not as much with the league head office. It’s Poile’s idea.

"Specifically, I brought up the monitor and whether that would be a situation that could be helpful," said Poile. "It was just me bringing that up. I think a lot of people had their points and nothing was decided today. We are all happy with where we are but we're not satisfied until we get all of the goals right. We're striving for perfection you could say."

Said another GM who didn’t want his name used: "I like David’s idea of the monitor in the box because it takes away some of the embarrassment factor for the refs; they get to correct their own calls and control the process. Makes sense."

Regardless, look for more of this video review talk in March.

Best Guess Is Claude Giroux Will Miss At Least Two Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

After general manager Ron Hextall declared Giroux to be "fine" on Monday, Giroux will likely miss at least the next two games with what the team is calling a "lower-body" injury. It will be Giroux's first game missed due to injury since Dec. 19, 2011 (concussion), breaking a streak of 197 straight games healthy.

Hextall said, via a conference call in Toronto, that Giroux suffered the injury in practice.

If so, Giroux's injury must have flared up long after he left the practice rink. The Flyers practiced at 10:30 a.m. on Monday and Giroux participated from start-to-finish. He handled his media responsibilities, light for the day, and left the locker room like normal. There was no apparent ill-effect from skating.

In between 11:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Giroux's "lower-body" injury became serious enough that he needed to ask out of a long-planned meet-and-greet session with season-ticket holders at Wells Fargo Center.
