Looking Back At Bettman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

...“I mean, there are ways you can get your story out,” said Bettman, “about who these terrific stars are and why they’re great role models and why what they do on ice is as amazing as what Michael Jordan does in the air, when he’s going to slam dunk.”
Bettman concluded: “We’ve got a great product that I think has been underappreciated.”
Sadly, those observations are as true today as they were 14 years ago when he originally said them - which may be the most damning indictment of all of Bettman’s time at the helm.

How’s Mogilny

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre Lebrun of the CP via the Sporting News,

On the shelf with a chronic hip problem, one that has very likely ended his career, Mogilny is faced with pondering a future beyond hockey.
“It’s been very difficult,” he said on the phone from the Los Angeles area. “Everybody goes through it. But it’s not easy to be honest. You find a lot of empty space to fill.”
He’s getting paid US$3.5 million by the New Jersey Devils this season, the last year of a contract he signed with the club coming out of the lockout in August 2005.
He’ll be an unrestricted free agent July 1 but highly doubts a comeback in is the cards.
“Never say never, but probably not,” Mogilny said. “I’ll be 38 in a few weeks. . .”

Shadowing Yashin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Kolb at MSG Network,

To the majority of NHL players, the morning of a game is just a routine. Wake up, eat, come to the rink, stretch, hop on the ice for 20-45 minutes, then get back into street clothes and be on their way home, or to the hotel if they are on the road.
To Alexei Yashin, things are very different.
This past Tuesday morning I decided to tag along and bear witness to what the Isles Captain’s routine is like. On this day the Isles would host the Detroit Red Wings for the first time in four years.
So at 10:30 a.m., after Yashin did a bit of stretching, he laced up and hit the ice. Yashin worked on some skills but cut his ice time a bit short, for no apparent reason.

Heatley led all NHL scorers in January, tallying 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) in 13 games, and posted a League-best +14 rating as the Senators went 9-3-1 and improved to second place in the Northeast Division. Heatley had multiple points in seven contests, highlighted by a four-point performance (three goals, one assist) in a 6-3 victory over Buffalo Jan. 3 and consecutive one-goal, two-assist efforts in wins over the New York Rangers (6-4, Jan. 11) and Montreal Canadiens (8-3, Jan. 13). Heatley finished the month with two points (one goal, one assist), including his sixth game-winning goal of the season, in a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals Jan. 30.

Original 6 Style

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from EJ Hradek of ESPN,

I pondered a goalie’s life in the Original Six and thought about which of today’s goalies would make the cut. If there were just six teams, which six stoppers would have an NHL-level job? With a tip of the mask to the Gumper (despite the fact that he rarely wore one), here are my picks from current crop:
Martin Brodeur
The Devils goalkeeper is a stopper for all eras. Brodeur would have loved to play during a time when it wasn’t unusual to start each and every game.

NHL Denies Approaching Gossage

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Sports Business Daily (paid sub.),

NHL Senior VP/Communications Bernadette Mansur told THE DAILY, “No one from the league office, acting in any official or unofficial capacity, has approached Mr. Gossage, and no intermediary been solicited to do so on the NHL’s behalf. Any assertion to the contrary is a fabrication”

If you are not familar with Mr, Gossage, you can check out the story I pointed to yesterday from ESPN.
