Positive Signs For Williams

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

A few days off may be all that's required to get Jason Williams back on the ice for the Wings' next game. Helene St. James Wing Blog

Don’t yet rule out Jason Williams playing Friday night when the Red Wings are at Minnesota. Williams left Monday’s 2-1 victory over Dallas in the second period after suffering a charley horse when he was hit by Niklas Hagman. After the game Wings teammates said Williams was in a lot of pain; but general manager Ken Holland had good news when I spoke to him Tuesday afternoon. “Williams felt pretty good today, much better than we or he thought he would,” Holland said. “He’s come along way since the way he felt last night.”

Yotes Get A Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN as Breaking News,

The Toronto Maple Leafs have moved their surplus goalie. Sources tell TSN that Michael Tellqvist has been traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for forward Tyson Nash and a draft pick. Another source suggested there may be a minor-league player from Toronto accompanying Tellqvist to Phoenix, but that the Coyotes are looking for Tellqvist to shore up their inconsistent netminding.

Put It To A Vote

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of ESPN,

What we have here is a need for some good, old-fashioned computerized rankings. You know, like the ones that have NCAA football fans locked in constant debate and have others screaming for a playoff system to stop the madness. But at least those folks have something relatively concrete to argue about.

On the Hockey Blogs

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

By Alanah D The weekly selection of posts from the hockey blogosphere is made up largely of blogs never previously highlighted in this column, so check out a few new reads. Dave Chernichan is a sports reporter for News 1130 radio in Vancouver and has his own blog, In the Room. Last week Dave discussed the matter of Canucks-Blackhawks rumors suggesting a trade involving Brent Seabrook and Brendan Morrison and wrote, "Plain and simple, This is how the Morrison for Seabrook non-rumor started." (Bottom line? It was kinda Dave's fault...)

The First Quarter Went So Fast

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Where did the first quarter of the NHL season go? If you're the Columbus Blue Jackets, St. Louis Blues or Philadelphia Flyers, you could quite rightly say it went up in smoke. Or if you're Anaheim, Buffalo or Atlanta, you'd say that it went by like a dream. With the first quarter in the rearview mirror, it's time to look at what transpired and what's to come. With just eight wins in their first 21 games last season, the San Jose Sharks looked like they'd be playoff toast before they acquired Joe Thornton in late November. The Sharks tore through the last three quarters of the schedule and Big Joe won the Hart Trophy.

Behind The Scene

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sun-Sentinel,

Never let them see you sweat might be the operative phrase for those who squeeze into the FSN Florida production truck outside of BankAtlantic Center for every Florida Panthers home game. What resembles organized chaos to the casual observer is actually a practiced, coordinated effort designed to deliver an enjoyable viewing experience. Only those behind the scenes understand the hours of prep work required for a three-hour hockey broadcast, which always includes a live half-hour pregame show, Panthers Tonight, with host Craig Minervini.

Chicago Fans Have Their Say

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the blog of Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune,

The man who couldn't wait to get rid of Brian Sutter because he didn't like the way Sutter coached young players now apparently couldn't wait to save his own backside by firing his hand-picked coach who couldn't coach the GM's young players who can't play. The only thing I know for sure is that the people in the Hawks organ-I-zation won't rest until they have killed the interest in hockey in every fan in Chicago.

Brule Gets His Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Brule’s situation under Hitchcock has changed, that much is clear. "I don’t really have a say on (whether Brule goes back to juniors) or not," Hitchcock said. "But right now, we need Gilbert on the ice more, not less. "Our goal is to play him more and more. I don’t know where he was before with playing time, but we want to get him to a point where he can play key minutes every night and contribute." Brule, a soft-spoken 19-year-old with a flat-line face, broke into a wide grin when asked about the recent turn of events.
