Keep Fighting In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Christy, a KK member, fellow blogger and Univ. of Michingan student, submitted a paper recently for one of her classes and thought hockey fans would be interested in reading it here on KK.

It is long, but believe me, it is well worth your time.
_________________________

On November 22, 2006, hockey fans attending the Atlanta Thrashers and Washington Capitals game were privileged to watch the emotionally charged contest turn into a game with 176 penalty minutes including 10 fighting majors with a little over a minute left in the game (“Game summary”). As a result, the attendance at the next game increased from the previous sub par level of 11,284 people to just over 15,000, fueling the debate about fighting and its place within the NHL. Since the inception of the NHL in 1917, fighting has always played a role in the sport but has seen a steady decline since the 1980s. Games like this one have caused fans, players, coaches, and the media to question the future of fighting in the sport and whether it innately and ethically belongs in the game. Many of the hardcore fans, myself included, believe that fighting is a crucial ingredient to the value of the sport.

The Penguins Scenario

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

The scenario where the Penguins absolutely stay and survive in Pittsburgh requires that the Isle Of Capri — and not two other suitors — end up with the slots license.
If not, then all bets are off; and the Penguins could be on the move; and if they do go, they would most likely end up in that hockey hotbed of Kansas City, Missouri.
As a scenario, it looks startlingly similar to the flight of the Quebec Nordiques to Colorado following the 1994-95 season, when Marcel Aubut’s ownership group couldn’t figure out a way to get the government to pay for a new building in his city either. Denver had previously failed as an NHL town; the woeful Rockies left in the early 1980s to become the New Jersey Devils.

It Was A Goal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

Roberto Luongo did little to soothe the steaming Minnesota Wild on Monday.
The Canucks goaltender admitted the video review ruling of a disallowed Pascal Dupuis goal on Saturday was wrong.
A 10-minute video review proved inconclusive and the Wild went wild. They lost 2-1.
“Oh no, it was definitely in,” chuckled Luongo.

Player Suspended Due To Flag Incident

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

The commissioner of the Quebec League said he intends to investigate the release of the Saint John Sea Dogs’ top goal scorer after the player failed to sign a flag being sent to troops in Afghanistan.
Dave Bouchard, a 20-year-old left winger with the Sea Dogs, was released by the team over the weekend by GM-coach Jacques Beaulieu and while the Sea Dogs said there were other on- and off-ice issues with Bouchard, his failure to sign the flag was a tipping point.

Fedorov Not Going Anywhere

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

The Sun newspaper chain in Canada reported in Sunday’s editions that the Montreal Canadiens have interest in center Sergei Fedorov, and that president and general manager Doug MacLean would be willing to listen to offers.
“I have no intention or desire to trade Sergei Fedorov,” MacLean said yesterday. “He’s an unbelievably important part of our club, with guys like (Dan) Fritsche, (Gilbert) Brule, and all of our young guys.
“I’ve been hearing this stuff (out of Canada) for two days now, and it’s crazy. I’ve not had one conversation with them, and I’ve got no interest in listening. I’m not trading Sergei Fedorov.”

Brett Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Brett Hull did a Q & A with the Star-Tribune,

Any changes needed?
They’ve got to get rid of the shields, get rid of the diving. And make the goalies’ pads—I don’t want them smaller—I want them more aerodynamic so every time they go down it’s not like a wall. So that if they’re rounded there are still holes there like there used to be. With all the materials in the world, they can make the chest and arm protectors still protective, and still get holes under the arms and what-not. I think making the nets larger is the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard. Is it hockey or is it soccer? The nets have been fine for I don’t know how long the game’s been around, you know?

Close Call For Ref

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Winnipeg Free Press,

Rob Martell has heard all the jokes about referees and bad eyesight, but for the last two months he’s had trouble seeing the humour in witty wisecracks about vision.
Martell suffered an eye injury on Oct. 5 in a game between the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues. A redirected slapshot hit the Winnipeg-born Martell in the left eye and he almost immediately lost vision in it.
“Right away, I knew this was worse than the usual bumps we get,” recalled Martell, who will work a game in New Jersey Tuesday when the Devils host the Atlanta Thrashers. “I knew this was something out of the ordinary. Almost immediately, I couldn’t see out of the eye, and when I was leaving the rink, I was wondering if it was the last time I would step off the ice.”
