Big Boys Still Big

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

So is it harder to be the GM in Detroit or Dallas now? "There's no doubt we had a tremendous advantage under the old CBA,'' admits Holland. "But there were also tremendous expectations to win a Stanley Cup every year. Every situation you're in you've got challenges. "Now is just a different challenge for us than it was before. We're all on a level playing field and we're all trying to figure out how to be the New England Patriots.'' Which system does Holland like better? "I liked having the advantages.''

Server Issues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

They must have known I was taking it easy this afternoon. From my host- server loads on srv9.pmachinehosting.com Friday, February 03, 2006 at 04:01 PM Update: Server loads on srv9.pmachinehosting.com also seem to be the issues related to db01.pmachinehosting.com database server. We are working on the combined issues and should have things fully under control shortly. Sorry for the problems, now back to the party! KK was down and out for about 1 1/2 hours, but looks good to go again.

SCF Could Be Super

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei of ESPN,

I've often wondered what it would be like if we had a similar phenomenon in the NHL, if the Stanley Cup was a one-and-out tournament -- now that's pressure -- with a one-week lead-in to the championship game at a preselected, neutral site. Heck, it could even be held in a city without NHL hockey. Chicago, for example. The folks at the William Morris Agency might even go along with this, right after saying, "We gotta do lunch." They could even come up with revolutionary concepts, such as promoting the league's individual stars. What might it be like?

Red Wing Jersey Issue

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Boy, little did I know this would cause an uproar. Wednesday night I talked with a buddy of mine who happens to work in Detroit radio, and I told him about the NHL and the Wings thinking about changing the design and color scheme of their jersey. See Bob McKenzie's article from very early this morning, a few posts down. Also see an article from ESPN at Lets Go Wings from yesterday. Well, my buddy mentioned it on the air yesterday morning and now Art Regner is talking about it on the air. Wing fans are not happy with this at all, going to a black jersey would be ok as an alternate, but please, no changes to the current jersey. More on this later, back to partying.

‘Tough’ Guys

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tampa Tribune,

When there are points to be earned in a playoff push, players will do anything to get on the ice. "I've seen guys play with separated shoulders and dislocated shoulders," DiMaio said. "It's the nature of professional sports, I think. Especially in hockey. I don't know if the tolerance is higher. I think a lot of it is guys don't like to give their spots up to anyone else. There's a lot of pride. I think that's what makes the hockey guys pretty special."

Where Will Witt Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Brendan Witt's wish to be traded remains and George McPhee is adamant a deal will be done before the March 9 NHL trade deadline. "It will happen this year, I just don't know when," McPhee, the Capitals' general manager, said after practice here yesterday. "He has asked for a trade and he will be traded. I am not going to comment any further. (We just want) what is best for the team and the organization."
