&*$%^# Classic

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Daryl Reaugh of Razor With An Edge,

According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, last week the league came out with a warning and policy memo regarding foul language being used in the media….

The following is fake reaction from some of hockey’s more fiery personalities:

NYR coach John Tortorella
“I’m trying to win ****ing hockey games and they want me to watch my ****ing language?! Give me a ****ing break. This isn’t a god **** church league, this is the National ****ing Hockey League. **** me! Get a ****ing life. We played like sh** last night, am I supposed to say we played like poop? Or doo doo? Is that what I’m supposed to do? Am I Brooksy?

more personalities…

Does (George) McPhee try to trade Theodore or send him to the minors and go with two 21-year-old kids who have played a total of 13 NHL postseason games between them (all played by Varlamov)? Or does McPhee look to a veteran like Marty Turco or Martin Biron to provide some insurance in net? Interesting times ahead, to be sure.

-Scott Burnside of ESPN.  More from Scott and four more topics too.

Defenseman puts NHL career on hold for Olympic opportunity

from Travis Rockhold at The Lantern (Ohio State student newspaper),

Winning championships for a professional franchise in sports is often an athlete’s ultimate goal, but a select few get a chance to achieve even more.

Come February, former Buckeye Ryan Kesler will attempt to win a gold medal with the U.S. men’s ice hockey team.

FSN Pittsburgh Under Investigation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,

The NHL is investigating Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh for not sending all available camera angles to league headquarters in Toronto for Simon Gagne’s apparent goal that was under review against the Penguins last Thursday, the Daily News has learned.

FSN Pittsburgh, who had the game’s only video feed, allegedly sent all of the camera angles of the replay except the one that clearly showed the puck over the goal line.

Comcast SportsNet elected to not use their own video feed during the game to save money on production costs, one SportsNet employee said on Monday.

Theo Fleury Realizes He Made A Mistake

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Last week, Theo Fleury used his blog to rip the Calgary Flames’ decision to cut him from the roster after a pre-season tryout. On Monday, he used it again - this time to apologize for his comments.

“I sometimes say and do things without thinking,” Fleury wrote on Monday. “I want to apologize to Craig Conroy and Robyn Regehr for my comments. I will never forget my 2 and a half weeks this September and how great it was being with the boys again. The Calgary Flames organization is one of class and integrity and the comments that I made were uncalled for. Please accept my apology.”

Jovanovski Suspended For Two Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (January 11, 2010)—Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski has been suspended for two games, without pay, for elbowing New York Islanders center John Tavares in NHL game #669 on Jan. 9, the National Hockey League announced today.

  Jovanovski, who was suspended for two games on Dec. 9, 2009, now is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits $158,536.59 in salary based on the number of games (82) in a season, rather than the number of days (193). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

  At 19:43 of the first period, Jovanovski delivered an elbow to Tavares’ head area and was assessed a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct.

Worst Regular So Far This Season

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

In December, I picked Kyle Chipchura of the Anaheim Ducks as the player who had been the worst regular so far this season.  He has played himself out of that dishonor by scoring 3 goals since that point. 

So far this season, we have seen competition for the worst regular in the league.  Vesa Toskala of Toronto was the early season pick.  He has improved his game somewhat since that low point.  Brad Richardson of the Los Angeles Kings came next.  But in time he started scoring.  Next up was Andrew Peters of the New Jersey Devils.  Peters lost the spot by losing his status as a regular.  He has only played three games since December 2nd. Next I made my selection of Kyle Chipchura.

Let’s Go West For The Weekly Team Rankings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Helene Elliott of the LA Times with her view of the NHL…

28. Atlanta 19-19-6 Thrashers GM Don Waddell has a lot of new best friends now, with Ilya Kovalchuk apparently about to be on the market. If he isn’t already. (24)

29. Toronto 15-22-9 Coach Ron Wilson unfairly singles out Phil Kessel for Maple Leafs’ problems, which include two wins in the last 10. Look in the mirror, Ron. (28)

30. Edmonton 16-23-5 The Oilers have won only once in their last 10. Sheldon Souray says he’s willing to waive his no-trade clause. There could be some takers. (30)
