Fedorov In Montreal?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Canadiens are looking for help at centre and could be eyeing veteran Sergei Fedorov.
Some whispers out of Montreal last week had the Habs looking at bringing in Fedorov to help the club try to stay in the playoff race.
The Habs current payroll sits at $41 million and they would have to clear some money off the books if they’re going to bring in a guy like Fedorov.

Peter Forsberg Injured Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Ginsburg of the AP, via Metronews,

Inspired by the return of Peter Forsberg, the Philadelphia Flyers began their bid to end a five-game losing streak by scoring first against the Washington Capitals.
By the end of the first period, the lead was gone. So was Forsberg, who missed the final 40 minutes with a concussion after absorbing a wicked hit from Washington’s Alex Ovechkin.

Kessel Meets With The Media

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Boston Globe,

Boston Bruins rookie Phil Kessel said Saturday he feels relieved after finding out his testicular cancer hasn’t spread, but his feelings were very different when he first got the diagnosis.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Kessel said before Boston’s game against Florida on Saturday night. “It was tough. I had a hard time with it.”...
The discovery of cancer and surgery has helped Kessel put hockey in perspective.
“You become more a spokesperson with stuff like this. I had to deal with stuff that a lot of people had to deal with,” Kessel said. “If you’re not feeling well go get checked out and make sure you’re all right.”

Scoring Down

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

...But this season, despite the same rules and a continued crackdown, scoring is down. In fact, more than half the gain registered last season has been lost, and league officials are at a loss to explain why.
The game looks a great deal livelier over the past season and a half than it has looked in years, in part because enforcing obstruction allows for fairer and freer play, and in part because of the addition of a reduced-risk overtime period (teams receive a point in the standings even if they lose in overtime) and a shootout.

Old School- The Rocket Lit It Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Evan Weiner at NHL.com,

Who was the best player to ever wear Le Bleu, Blanc et Rouge of the Montreal Canadiens?
That is a tough question. There was Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey, Bernard “Boom Boom” Geoffrion, Toe Blake, Howie Morenz (who was sometimes called the Babe Ruth of hockey), Jacques Plante and Henri Richard among others. But Maurice “The Rocket” Richard tops a long list of Canadiens greats both on and off the ice.

Would This Work For You

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

Trades are rare these days, but when the Red Wings and Devils meet at the Meadowlands this afternoon, New Jersey’s Scott Gomez and Pavel Datsyuk of Detroit might keep an eye on each other.
Although it isn’t believed to have been seriously discussed, there is at least some recognition that a swap involving those two centers would solve issues for each team.

Kitchen Gave Everything He Had

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News-Democrat,

Still, Kitchen felt he was up to the challenge and blamed no one but himself for the team’s failure to turn things around.
“I’m not going to throw the blame anywhere,” he said. “I didn’t get the job done and I’m the coach. I’ve got to find different ways, and that’s my responsibility.”
Kitchen ran a practice on the day he was fired, still looking for improvement.
“I gave everything I had and I wouldn’t change too many things that I did,” he said. “I couldn’t find a way, that’s probably the one regret I do have. But I know it wasn’t from a lack of work or anything like that.”
