Not So Fast

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

There was also plenty of talk on the radio call-in shows and along media row about Trevor Linden.
He had lost a step, some suggested. His hands were gone, others said. He was too old. The Vancouver Canucks made a mistake bringing him back. There was more, but you get the picture.
If Linden heard any of this, he didn’t pay attention. He just did what he has always done in an NHL career now in its 19th year. He came to the rink determined to do whatever he could to help the team win.
Lately, he has been doing quite a lot.

The “Middle” Body Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sportsnet,

When you’re the size of Zdeno Chara, the simple “upper” or “lower” body ailment does not apply—you need to add a “middle” category.
The Bruins’ defenceman will miss his homecoming game versus the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday with what is being called a mystery “middle body” injury. Chara, who has not played since the 10-2 loss to Toronto, remains quiet on what exactly caused “it.”

Go For A Skate

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Guelph Mercury,

Everyone has seen the grainy, home-filmed footage of the young Wayne Gretzky, still unsteady on his feet, learning to skate on his backyard skating rink.
It’s an image that’s wholesome and nostalgic and one that undoubtedly has fuelled dreams of becoming an NHL hockey star.
But whether you are bound for the Olympics, the National Hockey League, the Ice Capades or just want a little exercise, you don’t have to dream about having a skating rink.

Dry Spell May Be Over For Kozlov

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Gwinnett Daily Post,

Despite a successful 15-year career, the NHL All-Star Game has meant just one thing to Slava Kozlov: a couple of days off in midseason.
That may not be the case this time, however.
The All-Star choices will be announced beginning tonight, and the Atlanta Thrashers feel that the 34-year-old Kozlov has already gone too long without the recognition he deserves.
“I sure hope he makes it,” said Thrashers coach Bob Hartley, who will be an assistant for the Eastern Conference at Dallas on Jan. 24. “He’s very deserving. I don’t know where we’d be right now without him.”

Will Yzerman Go Back To Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal,

...Still, the Team Canada brand has rarely been stronger and a huge part of that strength has been the work done by a growing roster of high-profile leaders, led by the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Kevin Lowe and Detroit GM Ken Holland with the men’s Olympic program. Ex-Detroit Red Wings great Steve Yzerman, a gold medallist in Salt Lake as a player, may be the next high-profile name to join the Team Canada management ranks.

Janssen Type Player Becoming Extinct

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

Cam Janssen is the darling of the highlight reels.
Janssen is also a dinosaur.
His kind is on the endangered species list, a message the New Jersey Devils sent him Saturday, when they shipped the 22-year-old right-winger to the Lowell Devils of the American Hockey League.
In 28 games this season, Janssen has dropped the mitts nine times, taking on all comers, included such noted tough guys as Ottawa’s Brian McGrattan (twice), Jody Shelley of Columbus, Colton Orr of the New York Rangers and Anaheim’s George Parros.
On the flip side, when he keeps his gloves on and his stick in his hand, Janssen is about as threatening as a cardboard cut out of a hockey player.

The X-Men Look

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

CCM/Reebok has come up with a more form-fitting, tucked-in jersey that will eliminate horizontal striping and design.
The Canucks are about to look more like X-Men than hockey players.
Commissioner Gary Bettman should go to the box for two minutes by himself and feel shame.
Let’s be clear about one thing.
This latest wardrobe malfunction is not about image or, as the league has recently suggested, about further reducing obstruction—this is about money.

more... some all-star game talk too…
