Win A Home Game, Fan Gets A Car

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

The Thrashers plan to send one fan home from Philips Arena in a new car after each home victory this season — a new blue car bearing the team's logo. "We hope there are 41 of them" on Atlanta roads by spring, said Thrashers general manager Don Waddell, who conceived the promotion. The Thrashers play 41 home games. Key details, including make of car and length of free lease, still are being worked out, but the promotion "is definitely going to happen," Thrashers president Bernie Mullin said. The plan is for winners to keep the cars for at least one year.

Memories Of Al MacInnis

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of the Post-Dispatch,

It is not the booming slap shot, arguably the best point shot in the history of the game. It is not his pinpoint passing or heady defensive play or his deceptive nastiness on the ice. Rather, it was seeing just how spent MacInnis was after a game. He often looked pale, almost gaunt. Night after night, he logged big minutes. Night after night, he killed penalties, ran the power play, took the hits -– playing to the maximum his body would allow. He didn’t lope around the ice like Pronger, making the game look easier than it was. He didn’t pace himself like Hull did. He couldn’t. He didn’t have that luxury.

Around The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Shawn Roarke of Fox Sports,

As the race for the Stanley Cup is set to begin in earnest with the opening of training camps this coming week, the current holders — the Tampa Bay Lightning — gather in South Florida as virtually forgotten champions. Now, hockey has returned; and it is governed by a spanking-new, restrictive economic system. And, again the Lightning are somewhat forgotten as all the attention focuses on the unprecedented player movement that has occurred this summer, completely reshaping many of the league's franchises. Few, if any, fans are talking about the Lightning's chances to defend their hard-earned crown.

It’s a great time to be a hockey fan, and a hockey player for that matter. The NHL season is less than a month away and we can finally forget about the lost season from the labor dispute. It’s time for some hockey!!! With EA’s long running hockey series, NHL 06 releasing this week, who better to talk hockey with than cover athlete Vincent Lecavalier?
