Step-Up Time For Stastny

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ryan Kennedy at the Hockey News,

Without a serious goaltending pedigree in town, Colorado’s playoff hopes – which looked practically radiant in the summer – now fall on the shoulders of one happy-go-lucky fellow: Paul Stastny.

Sure, the Avs get solid contributions from the likes of veterans Andrew Brunette and Milan Hejduk, but it is Stastny who leads the team in points by a wide margin (44 to Hejduk’s 30) and Stastny who has the highest ceiling for stardom.

Pressure On Lundqvist

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

The onus is on Henny (Lundqvist). Period.

Oh-for-two on the Western swing, the Rangers require the king to once again be THE KING.

No ifs, ands or buts when the Blueshirts play the Oilers on Saturday night in Edmonton.

Sticks and Stones

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Brockton Enterprise,

The names may be changed, but the basic story will be familiar to youth hockey teams from Brockton and Fredericton, New Brunswick, who met under stressful circumstances back in March of 2003, a day after the United States began bombing Iraq.

The short-lived tension began when the Brockton teams witnessed anti-American protests while in Canada for a hockey tournament and returned battered, not by the action on the ice, but by the scenes on the streets.

But, by year’s end, the Boxer PeeWee team was back in New Brunswick, this time as guests of the University of New Brunswick in cooperation with the city’s youth hockey program.

Cheechoo Trying To Bust Out Of Slump

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

Making him even more sluggish in his fifth NHL season was the double-hernia surgery he underwent last spring. Cheechoo had tears on both sides of his abdominal muscles, where they attach to the groin, and doctors went in and repaired everything at once late in May.

Undergoing the operation three months before training camp had a significant impact on Cheechoo’s training.

“I run a lot during the off-season, and I wasn’t able to run at all this off-season,” he said. “I wasn’t able to do anything real heavy until probably the last part of August.

“Coming in, I had a little bit of time to make up.”

Cheechoo is now attempting to overcome the cranial side of his slump.

Get It Right Colorado

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from All Thing Avs by Adrian Dater,

The fact is, the Avs embarrassed themselves over their latest injury news, regarding Ryan Smyth. The Avs put out the word that X-rays were negative on Smyth’s ankle. They get a sigh of relief from their fans. A day later, they said, ‘Uh, never mind, the ankle is actually broken. He’ll be out eight weeks.’

Foppa Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

At the risk of generating a whirlwind of speculation, Peter Forsberg believes there is reason to hope he can return to the NHL this season. He’s said to be “cautiously optimistic.”...

To date, Forsberg has avoided any contract or meaningful discussions with teams that would lead to a commitment. However, he has acknowledged his fondness for the 3 NHL teams he has played for, namely Colorado, Philadelphia and Nashville.

Perhaps, wishful thinking, however sources close to the Flyers believe Philadelphia to be Forsberg’s destination of choice.
