City Of Pittsburgh Plan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

...The opening position of the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County governments in negotiations for Plan B, as the search for a new arena is now called, were not encouraging for local hockey fans. This plan called for the Penguins to contribute $8.5-million up front plus $2.9-million a year for 30 years and an additional $1.16-million a year from the naming rights.
Since the Pittsburgh Steelers football team and Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team kept 100 per cent of their naming rights in deals with the same governments for new stadiums and used that money to pay most of their share of the building costs, the Penguins cannot be happy with this proposal.

The New Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

As the final seconds tick off, following are some suggested NHL-oriented New Year’s resolutions:
Sidney Crosby, Penguins: To maintain his upward curve, which is really scary. And exciting.
May you have many pleasant stats in 2007, Sid.
Peter Forsberg, Flyers: To either get and stay well, or go home to Sweden before he suffers permanent brain damage.
Officiating czar Stephen Walkom and NHL referees: To not back off. At least not more than they have already.

Golbez On Fitzpatrick Saga

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Who’s to blame for the sudden drop-off in votes….stubby-fingered Wing fans, or a stubby commish?

Jes Golbez/Hockey Rants

The momentum picked up by the Vote for Rory campaign in the recent weeks has stalled as evil Nicklas Lidstrom has leapfrogged Rory into 2nd place in the All-Star voting race for Western Conference defenseman.

Doesn’t it seem a little fishy that Rory Fitzpatrick (Like a glove) is suddenly in 3rd place? Are Wings fans smartly stuffing the on-line ballot boxes or is the NHL manipulating numbers?

I’m torn.  While I don’t doubt the possibility of a frantic league official ordering janitorial staffers to “click…ok, click again…AGAIN”, I kinda think Wing fans taking this whole thing WAY too personally are the true culprits, if you want to label them that.

In the end though…as I’ve said, we have only ourselves to blame.  Fan voting in any sport is a farce.

The Winners Are Announced

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

Greg Wyshynkski at the Fourth Period has named Kukla's and Off Wing as his co-Blogs of the Year.

Both Paul Kukla and Eric McErlain have changed the face of hockey blogging, turning entertaining Web sites into fully-staffed, must-read daily visits. They've also landed some pretty plum gigs — Paul with NHL.com, Eric with NBCSports.com — and have championed the rights of the alternative media to become credentialed members of the press box. Kudos to both on an outstanding, and eventful, year.
What Greg doesn't say, but I will, is that both Eric and Paul have blazed a path for hockey bloggers. Their efforts, along with others, have established this medium's credibility in ways we never would have predicted a year ago. Congrats to both. added by Paul at 3:05pm, Thanks Greg for the props and IwoCPO for pointing this out, it is much appreciated.

Adding both Alanah and IwoCPO to the Korner was one of the smarter moves that I have made, we all look forward to a great 2007.

Khan(!): Chelios Out

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Chris Chelios has apparently fallen victim to the dreaded "undisclosed lower body injury," and won't be in the lineup tonite. He was apparently hurt in the third period Wednesday night. Khan(!) Weblog

It'll be just the second game Chelios has missed this season. Andreas Lilja will replace him. Robert Lang, who missed the last two periods because of a stomach virus, is fine and will play tonight. Mikael Samuelsson skated but won't play until Sunday, Babcock said.
Here's what former Deep Digger captain Ted Kulfan has to say about it in his blog. Kulfan/Detroit News
Have a great Christmas every one, and safe, happy, and prosperous New Year. No hockey talk today or tomorrow. Just enjoy the time with family and friends. We'll get back to hockey quick enough.
Thanks Ted.

Fisher Out With Knee Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

It wasn’t a very merry Christmas for the Senators. And today’s revelation that Mike Fisher is out after being injured in Wednesday’s win over the N.Y. Islanders will certainly put a damper on New Year’s celebrations, too.
The Sens confirmed today that Fisher, who had just moved into the No. 1 centre slot on the club’s top line, is out indefinitely with a knee injury. He was hurt in the third period of Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over the New York Islanders at Scotiabank Place.
