No To The NHL In Hartford

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hartford Reporter,

Before the National Hockey League returns to Hartford, pigs will sprout wings and fly. Donald Trump's eyes will well up, he'll cry out "I just can't do it," and he'll hire all the contestants. Barry Bonds will say he's sorry. In other words, it won't happen. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has no interest in a return to Hartford, a smallish market nestled between Boston and New York.

A Beautiful Day For A Ball Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I am leaving for an annual holiday here in Detroit- catching all of the Opening Day festivities and the home opener of the Detroit Tigers. Posts may be a little limited today but I am prepared with pocket pc in hand. Temperature in the low 60s, and the Tigers are 5-1, better enjoy it while it lasts.

Iggy’s Dad Steps In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Turns out Jarome isn't the only Iginla to play a big role in the Battle of Alberta of late. On a night when the Flames captain spearheaded a line that buried the Oilers 4-1 last Saturday, his father Elvis stepped up to play a key peacemaker role on the Rexall Place concourse.

The Voting Process

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Instead of posting every writer's picks for the different awards, which can become a boring read very quickly, how about some information about the voting process. from Anthony J. SanFilippo of the Delaware County Times,

Each member considered "in good standing" of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association will have an individual vote count in the voting for the Hart, Calder, Norris, Selke, Lady Byng, and Masterton trophies. This is a significant change from years past where participating chapters of the Association were given a limited number of votes based on the number of regular print media that covered the team. In years past, the Philadelphia chapter received two votes, which is actually one of the larger contingents, as most member cities got only one vote. But now, it is up to the chapter chairman of each city to determine how many members of their chapter are in "good standing."

OLN Has Improved

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Flyers,

Fortunately for NHL fans and OLN, everything has improved as the Stanley Cup playoffs near. Further good news: OLN hopes to air playoff games every night. "We had four or five weeks basically to prepare," Marc Fein, OLN's senior vice president of programming and production, said from his Stamford, Conn., office. "We had no time to build a (studio) set. You're only as strong as your weakest link. But everyone pulled together and got the right people on board. We're pretty happy and proud, especially recently, how the telecasts have been."

Who Starts For Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Sabres are about to make their first postseason appearance since 2001, and neither of their goalies has been there before. Some fans, given the club's erratic results of late, might wonder whether Ryan Miller or Martin Biron will be the Game One starter. Last week, after Biron won consecutive starts over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, Ruff admitted hard decisions are ahead and wouldn't name Miller the No. 1 netminder heading into the playoffs.

#2 Goes To The Rafters

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via NH.com,

Al MacInnis got a big sendoff to match the big shot that defined his career. The St. Louis Blues retired his No. 2 jersey on Sunday night in a ceremony that included dozens of former and current Blues players and featured 10 video testimonials from the likes of Brett Hull, Wayne Gretzky and Steve Yzerman, that likely was the highlight of the season for the team. The Blues had a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak and were saddled with one of the worst records in the NHL entering Sunday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Gaborik Weighing Options

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pioneer Press via the Duluth News Tribune,

Gaborik hungers for more these waning days of the 2005-06 season: More ice time from a demanding coach. A stronger supporting cast from a patient general manager. Respect from impressionable teammates. Earning power from accelerated leverage under the NHL's collective agreement. Performance and seniority have entitled Gaborik to certain benefits, such as being chosen as an alternate captain and gaining arbitration rights and a negotiating hammer that could pound out a lucrative contract this summer. How aggressive the Wild are after the season in assembling a contending roster could influence Gaborik on whether to pursue an arbitrated settlement and play one more season before becoming an unrestricted free agent or to seek a multiyear deal to stay in Minnesota.
