MacLeod Reports On Third Scrimmage

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1500 ESTMacLeod has the first round of cuts posted here and the training camp scoring leaders here

Updated 1355 EST: MacLeod also reports the first wave of roster cuts will be made today.  Should have details soon.

——————————————————

Yesterday it was Datsyuk’s brilliance. Today, Bruce MacLeod tells us from TC that Jiri Hudler was turning heads.

Jiri Hudler was flying. He made smart plays and outskated opponents on the backcheck.  Grigorenko was better, but not outstanding.

More from Red Wing Corner.  MacLeod has another brief post up regarding a possible minor injury to Valteri Filppula.

Valtteri Filppula didn’t practice with his group, Sunday, but said that his ailment was minor and that he’d likely be back on the ice tomorrow. No specifics on his injury.

Wayne Wines

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Catherines Standard,

The long-anticipated Wayne Gretzky wines are hitting LCBO shelves Monday, just in time for hockey season.

The classy labels bear the No. 99, a number the National Hockey League retired when Gretzky ended his career in April, 1999.

Gretzky admits he doesn’t know a whole lot about wine but “I can tell you if I like the taste of something or if I don’t like the taste of something,” he told Standard reporter Monique Beech in an exclusive interview.

Canes Defense Needs To Stay Healthy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

...But the Canes have only seven NHL defensemen under contract, leaving the margin for error wafer-thin. On a team most assess as a Stanley Cup contender, this is the acknowledged weak spot.

“If our defense can stay healthy, there shouldn’t be any doubt of what we’re capable of doing or how well we’re capable of playing,” Canes forward Erik Cole said.

There’s a little depth in the system—only one defenseman, Wade Brookbank, has played in an NHL game—and no money left in the budget for reinforcements, so the Canes need their five healthy defensemen to stay stay that way and need Kaberle and Bret Hedican to be ready on opening night.

Watching The Camps

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Training camp means something else altogether in several other markets, however, as star players flew here, there and everywhere during the summer, leaving pivotal questions to be answered. Below, the Citizen takes a look at 10 teams to watch during training camp.

Pittsburgh Penguins: From his sensational on-ice play to his non-stop marketing off the ice, the NHL has fast become Sidney Crosby’s league, reason enough to watch Crosby’s every move. And everything around him. The Penguins are on target to become the team of the future—if not the present.

Always The Communicator

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Bruins coach Claude Julien, originally from outside of Ottawa, grew up speaking both French and English. But he considers his first language to be French, which he utilizes when having one-on-one conversations with the French-first players on his roster, including Patrice Bergeron, Manny Fernandez, and newcomer Pascal Pelletier.

“I see it as a respect thing,” explained Julien. “It’s their first language, and so I speak French. If they were Russian, and I spoke Russian, I’d speak to them in Russian.”

Is Blake A Fit With Sundin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

Welcome to the club, Jason Blake, the Fraternal Squadron of Mats Sundin Wing Men.

Remember Mikael Renberg? Steve Thomas? Alex Mogilny? Gary Roberts? Eric Lindros? Freddie Modin? Lately, everyone from Tie Domi to Darcy Tucker, Alexei Ponikarovsky and Nik Antropov have flanked Sundin, with mutually less than Cup-calibre results.

Now, it’s Blake’s turn, circa training camp ‘07. Is he the one, the missing link in the magic combo?

Thank You Bryan Justman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I am not really sure about this, but it appears the Modesto Bee was in search of the greatest sports dynasty.  Mentioned in the story were the Yankees, the Oakland A’s, the 49ers and then this…

To anyone who has followed the sport of hockey since before the Gary Bettman era, determining the greatest sports dynasty is an open-and-shut case.

It’s the Montreal Canadiens from 1952 to 1980.

Sixteen of the club’s 24 Stanley Cups came during those 29 years. They won five straight Cups from 1956-60—a feat not since repeated—and four straight from 1976-79. In the 1960s, the Canadiens won four Cups in five years. Only once did more than two seasons pass without the Canadiens raising the Cup.
