Moore Mic’d Night Of Incident

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

James Mirtle made a good point on our post below that Steve Moore is most likely staying silent due to the pending lawsuit.  Well, here’s something I hadn’t heard until today.  Apparently his lawyer has audio evidence...kinda.

It’s now emerged that the NHL had a microphone on Moore on the night he was jumped by Bertuzzi and there’s an audio file in New York of the trash-talk Moore had to contend with. It’s not a stretch to say Moore’s safety was threatened. Moore has filed a $19 million suit against Bertuzzi and it baffles the mind why he hasn’t gone after the Colorado Avalanche. Consider the audio tape as Exhibit A.

More from Adams, including a suggestion to the BJ’s that would rankle some Wing fans.

More on Ted Saskin and the Email Scandal

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Bruce Dowbiggin at the Calgary Herald,

So far, Saskin has been as responsive as the Sphinx to most of these complaints. When pressed he fell back on the excuse of “previous practices” in the regime of Goodenow. Most of what Saskin and his allies—former president Trevor Linden, some players and a few prominent agents—have said is ridicule for those pesky old varmints such as Chris Chelios who’ve had the temerity to ask “where’s the money?” until they get a good answer. Chelios and Duane Roloson were said to be old and out of touch, reluctant to let a new generation take over the union.
This line worked well in the early days of Chelios’ questioning. Chelios is, after all, a notorious crank. But now that 18 months have passed without any revelations of substance from Saskin, the opposition has grown and reached critical mass.

More On Fighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Burke says he wants to strengthen the hockey tradition of players looking after their teammates. In the Original Six days, tough guys were called “policemen.”
“If my goalie gets run, I want someone in black and gold to handle it,” Burke says. “I don’t want zebras (referees) to handle it or the league office in Toronto to handle it.”
Burke’s position is when players have two instigator penalties, they don’t feel like they can do their jobs properly. He uses the case of the Florida Panthers’ Steve Montador.

New Jersey Devils Planning Ticket Increase

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Star-Ledger,

Devils fans could see this day coming as clearly as Scott Stevens lowering his shoulder to nail some hopeless left wing. But that didn’t make the 114 percent increase in the price of the best season tickets feel any better.
It’s a basic fact of life in the modern sports industry: A new arena means higher ticket prices. This week Devils fans are learning just how much more they will pay to maintain their seats when the team moves to Newark’s Prudential Center this fall.
We knew it was going to go up,” said Gary Mouridy of Readington, who has been a season-ticket holder since 2001. “We didn’t expect it to double.”

All Ted Nolan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Amber at ESPN,

Ted Nolan is finally back in the NHL doing what he does best: win hockey games. The Islanders coach has his team thinking about a long playoff run after going 14 seasons without a postseason series win.
Q: You played part of three seasons in the NHL. Why couldn’t you land a regular spot in the NHL?
A: I never went to hockey school or did power skating. I played house-league hockey until I was 12 years old. I never played travel hockey. My season was from November until March. I never trained in the offseason. I just played hockey ‘cause I had fun at it. When I got drafted to the NHL, I still couldn’t cross my left foot over my right foot; I couldn’t do crossovers on one side. I just didn’t have the proper training to be an everyday NHL player.

Fisher In The Woods

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marcie Garcia of NHL.com,

Though you can take the boy out of the country that Fisher calls home, you can’t stop him from hunting.
Returning to one of his favorite outdoor activities—whether it be strapping on a bow and arrow, toting a shotgun or smearing camouflage paint on his face—is the normalcy Fisher welcomes.
He admits, however, that he doesn’t have the patience to sit up in a tree stand for more then an hour when hunting. He needs to walk around and get his feet dirty in the leafy soil.
“After practice, just going out, it’s a good way for me to get away and have a little bit of balance,” Fisher says. “To get away from the game and just relax and enjoy the outside and God’s creation. It’s just something I love to do.”

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.
