Game Saving Stop

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Andrew Raycroft made a beauty of a save last night in the Leafs 2-1 victory over the Blues.
And to think some media talk on the radio today said Guerin got the shot off too slow and should have hit the corner.  Well, isn’t that true for all shots that don’t cross the red line…hmmm, missed it by “that” much!

NHL Entry Draft Goes Prime Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (Feb. 7, 2007)—The 2007 NHL Entry Draft will be held over two days, on Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23, at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, the National Hockey League announced today.

The first round will be conducted Friday night and broadcast live on VERSUS in the United States and TSN and RDS in Canada, beginning at 7 p.m., ET. Rounds two through seven will take place Saturday and start at 10 a.m., ET.

In Columbus, NHL club executives, scouts and coaches will be present on the Entry Draft floor while over 10,000 fans and more than 500 print, television and radio media also are expected. The Draft is expected to attract approximately 3,000 visitors to the city, accounting for 4,500 room nights and approximately $3 million in visitor spending.

Montreal native Angelo Esposito, a center for the defending Memorial Cup champion Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, is the top-ranked North American skater in the NHL Central Scouting Service mid-season ranking of eligible players for the Draft. Trevor Cann of the OHL’s Peterborough Petes is the top-rated North American goaltender, while right wing Alexei Cherepanov (Omsk, Russia) and goaltender Mark Owuya (Djurgarden) of the Swedish junior league are the top ranked skater and goalie, respectively, from European leagues.

Looking At The Sellers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek of ESPN,

As we skate toward the Feb. 27 trade deadline, you’re going to hear a lot of us media types talking about “buyers” and “sellers.”
Buyers are seeking to add players for a playoff push, and sellers are hoping to dump salary or gain assets for a player (usually an unrestricted free agent) who does not fit into future plans.
At this point, I see nine sellers. By deadline day, there might a few more clubs looking to peddle their unwanted wares. For now, here’s my list:
St. Louis Blues
New coach Andy Murray pumped a lot of life into the Blues. Still, it would take quite a run for them to make the playoffs.

Sanderson Not Happy With Benching

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chuck Gormley of the Courier Post,

In his 16 seasons, Geoff Sanderson has played in more than 1,000 NHL games and has recorded more than 600 points.
So why has Sanderson been a healthy scratch in the Flyers’ past two games?
Is it because of his play in the three games since returning from surgery to repair a sports hernia?
Is it because the Flyers are trying to showcase Mike York and Dmitry Afanasenkov in the games leading up to the Feb. 27 trade deadline?
Flyers coach John Stevens said he wants to see Sanderson, who has eight goals and 10 assists in 30 games, utilize his speed more.

Housley Joins Sabres Hall Of Fame

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Phil Housley was special from the start, freewheeling from a Minnesota high school straight to the NHL All-Rookie team as an 18-year-old.
Tonight, he skates into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame.
“I’m very excited and honored to receive this award and become part of a special group of people, including the legendary Scotty Bowman,” Housley said. “Scotty and the Sabres took a chance on a kid from a Minnesota high school, and I will never forget that.”

Chuck Not Happy With The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Sun,

Chuck Benson’s not going to another Ottawa Senators game until John Muckler “gets off his ass and does something about it” and “you’d be surprised at the number of people who think like I do.”...
He can’t stand the helmets. “They take away the personalities of the players, you can’t see what they look like.”
He can’t stand the bulkiness of the goalies’ equipment. “Who couldn’t stop a puck in that stuff?”
He can’t stand the goalies dropping to their knees on every shot. “Stand up, fer crissake.”

Playoffs May Judge Bryan Murray

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, With only 28 games left in the regular season, there have been no contract talks between GM John Muckler and Murray.
And there may be no talks until the club judges its playoff performance this spring.
“I think I’ll address that at another time,” said Murray when asked if he wanted to return here next season. “I don’t know if it’s normal or not. It’s just better for me not to talk about that issue at this point….”
