Kariya Studies All The Moves

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Wigge of NHL.com,

"He's the most cerebral player I've ever coached," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "It's like having another coach out there on the ice. I can tell a player this or that and it's so much lip-service. It falls on deaf ears. But Paul can say the same thing ... and it just clicks with the guys. I've never seen anything like it."

Penguin Patrol

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

As a lifelong fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Amy Egnot is living her dream of being a member of the organization. No, she doesn't play hockey, but she is a member of the Penguin Patrol, a squad of men and women who serve to rouse the crowd, work at autograph sessions and help at promotional events. About 100 hopefuls sought the open slots, and Egnot was one of the lucky ones to walk away with the coveted Penguin Patrol uniform.

Arnason Gets The Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Sun-Times,

With the trade deadline coming up on March 9, Arnason would likely be a player contending teams would like off the Hawks' roster. He doubts a trade would be in his best interests, however. "I like Chicago. I like the Blackhawks,'' he said. "I want to make it work here.'' The reaction to Arnason's benching somewhat surprised Yawney. "He's no different than anyone else,'' Yawney said. "No one talked about it when I sat Jassen Cullimore, Todd Simpson or Jim Dowd. They're all veterans who sat out. Arnie's part of the team, and my obligation is that if a player isn't performing, he has to be held accountable.''

Forsberg- “It Doesn’t Feel Good”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AFP via Yahoo,

Peter Forsberg, expected to lead Sweden at the Turin Olympics next month, aggravated a groin injury in Philadelphia's National Hockey League loss to Montreal. Signed as a free agent in August, Forsberg was playing in just his second game after missing a pair with a groin ailment. "I felt it right away," Forsberg said. "Its not like last time when it was coming on and on throughout the game, this time it was kind of like a more sharp pain right off the bat. "I dont think I came back too early," he added. "I played a game and it was fine. In three or four practices there was no problem. I felt good for a couple of days."
more update 2:42pm, from the AP via Sports Illustrated,
Peter Forsberg will miss at least two games with a slight tear in his left groin, a recurring injury that sidelined the Philadelphia Flyers' star center two games last week.

Chara Situation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Getting Zdeno Chara signed before the end of the season is going to be a tall task for the Senators. While the Senators defenceman told the Sun yesterday that his agent Matt Keator is willing to hold contract talks, Chara was also quick to add that his top priority is winning the Stanley Cup. And Chara understands -- as a free-agent to be -- if he doesn't have a new contract in place by the March 9 NHL trade deadline, the Senators could trade him.

The Villain Quinn

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

If we had to pick one of the NHL's best character villains, I guess Pat Quinn, coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, would be right up there. He certainly knows how to hold up a stagecoach, even if the sheriff and his deputies are inside. And he was back on the trail the other day. Instead of leaving quietly after his team lost to the Senators for the sixth time this season, there was old Quinn, in the bowels (how appropriate) of what is now known as Scotiabank Place, about to get under the skin of the Senators and their fans again.

Nolan Wants To Talk With Sharks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the San Francisco Chronicle,

Owen Nolan has hurdles to clear, but according to his agent, J.P. Barry, once those are accomplished, he plans to get in touch with the Sharks. Barry said Nolan is 7-10 days away from gaining medical clearance, then needs to "get the ground rules" on a grievance against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Ovechkin Speared Accidently

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Beaver County Times,

Ovechkin was stretched out on the ice after he was speared in the abdomen by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ryan Whitney at the end of the second period at Mellon Arena. Whitney could be facing additional punishment after the NHL reviews the incident. He was given a major for spearing and a game misconduct. "He was coming to the net and I was going to try to get to him and box him out," Whitney said. "I went to put my stick between his legs to lift his stick up, but I just got him too high. I didn't mean to spear him, it was just an accident."

Hasek Has Advice For Team Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Dominik Hasek has a warning for Team Canada. Consecutive gold medals will be hard to capture next month in Turin, whether or not Canada meets Hasek's Czech Republic team along the way. "It's tougher to win the second time," Hasek said yesterday on a National Hockey League conference call. "There's a lot of pressure. It isn't like the Stanley Cup. One bad game and you go home."
