There Is A Difference

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of the CBC,

One of my favourite internet bookmarks is a blog entitled Sports Media Watch. Although 95 per cent American in its focus, it contains plenty of intelligent and useful commentary.
Until Friday.
The blogger – identified only as Paulsen – posted a YouTube link to Thursday’s wild Senators-Sabres brawl. (You might have heard about it.) Underneath the video was the following comment:
“In the NHL, fighting—no matter how bloody—is accepted and okay. Punches thrown and wild brawls are cause for excitement.”

Where Have We Heard This Before

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,

On Friday, ESPN analyst Barry Melrose told New York radio station WFAN that a deal was close that would send Guerin to the New York Islanders. The Atlanta Thrashers are another team with interest in Guerin.
Tkachuk’s name has been linked at various times to Detroit, Anaheim and the New York Rangers. He still has not been asked by the Blues to waive his no-trade clause.
Deal or no deal—and at this point something seems almost certain to be done—the Blues still have a shot at reaching the postseason.

more...Norm, where did you get this from?

added 10:25am, from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story pointed to earlier today,

Davidson denied a rumor that the Blues had a deal in place to trade Guerin to the New York Islanders.
When reached Friday, Guerin said he hadn’t heard anything.

Esche Hears The Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philly Burbs,

Esche, 29, looks at everything philosophically.
He says he wants to stay and get himself back on track. But he’s also realistic to know he’s not Peter Forsberg or Jeremy Roenick — that is, he can’t go to the Flyers and hand them a list of his favorite destinations.
“As much as I like it in places, you can’t be scared to get fired,” he said after yesterday’s practice. “You can’t be scared to move on. You just have to play for your teammates and my teammates are the Flyers. Whatever happens, happens. Nothing I can control.”

Coming To Emery’s Defense

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

One well-placed punch could have shattered Emery’s orbital bone. It could have concussed him. It could have done all sorts of damage….
No, someone should have jumped on Peters. Didn’t have to be a fighter, either. There were none wearing Senators jerseys on the ice. Wouldn’t have even had to be in an honourable manner. Was Peters honourable? Or is seeking out a first-time NHL fighter who is wearing neither a mask nor helmet but plenty of restrictive goalie equipment .... and then not even taking off your own helmet ... is that borderline gutless?

Spector Revealed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Charlottetown Guardian,

Between now and Tuesday, the retired Canadian Forces soldier doesn’t plan on getting much sleep as he monitors each and every National Hockey League trade rumour.
Rumours pretty much consume his everyday life now. He operates the Spectorshockey.net website, a site that gets hundreds of thousands of hits every day around the world. A large portion of the site is devoted to trade rumours and his analysis of what is reported.
He gets up every morning around 7 o’clock, puts the coffee on and hunkers down in his Kensington Road basement for the better part of the day.

read on... Nice to see Lyle’s hometown paper recognizing one of their own.
