A Long Way From Voskresensk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sunday Paper,

At the height of the Cold War, Vyacheslav (or “Slava”) Kozlov was born. At that time, it was almost inconceivable that life’s road would lead him all the way from Voskresensk, Russia to Atlanta.
“When I was a kid, I had no idea what the Stanley Cup was,” he says of growing up in communist Russia. “We could not think about the NHL. There was only the Russian National Team. There were no Russians in the NHL.”
Then, when Kozlov was a teenager, Mikhail Gorbachev came to power. And while we’re all familiar with his contributions to world peace and politics, he also had a huge impact on Russia’s best athletes—especially hockey players.

Waiting On Bert

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I firmly believe the GMs of the hockey world are waiting on any trades until Bertuzzi takes to the ice.  Reports are he could play this weekend or sometime next week, but he has been participating in full practices.
Look for the “This Scout Was In Attendance” stories as soon as Todd starts playing.
Most of the other players involved in the trade talks will fall into place once Bertuzzi’s health status is determined.
The Panthers are about to draw a lot of media attention!

Be Prepared Gary

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Secret note to commissioner Gary Bettman: Watch your back.
I can’t say where exactly I heard this from, or who exactly told me, but there may be a move afoot to relieve you of your position. Normally I’d have some irrefutable evidence at hand to prove my case, but truthfully, I’m going more by vague hearsay and Nona who works down at Supercuts. Heed this warning, however: Nona is connected.
Sure, for now your job seems safe.

The Race For The Hart

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox at his blog, The Spin,

The race for the Hart Trophy as league MVP is down to two, and it’s going to be one heck of a charge to the finish line.
It’s crystal clear that Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby and New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur have separated themselves from the crowd, a very deep and talented crowd that includes Vancouver netminder Roberto Luongo, Tampa Bay centre Vincent Lecavalier and Anaheim blueliner Scott Niedermayer.
But Crosby and Brodeur are clearly the two to watch.

From The ECHL To Covering Iggy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Herald,

He was there. Maybe his nose didn’t look like a potato back then, but that was him.
Decked out in red, cheering his head off for the Calgary Flames during the Stanley Cup final.
In particular, he was rooting for the captain.
“It was something,” Zenon Konopka, hard case of the Columbus Blue Jackets, said Thursday morning. “You’re in the ECHL, you’re in hockey pools. I actually had Jarome Iginla in my pool. Now? I’m trying to get under his skin, trying to get him to drop his gloves. It’s funny what a difference three years makes.”

Considering Changes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Star Tribune,

Some of us were under the impression that the NHL was a declining league, stuck on a boondocks cable channel, in desperate need of realignment and more logical scheduling.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman resoundingly agrees ... that his league is considering alignment and schedule changes.
