From the Dub: Spring Fever

Blog: Above the Glass By Samantha

It's been seven months since I had to face a weekend without Winterhawks hockey. The first weekend without local hockey is always weird, even when the Winterhawks make a deep playoff run. The Everett Silvertips eliminated the Winterhawks last Friday, which wasn't exactly a surprise. The real headline involves the Tri-City Americans, who went undefeated in the first two rounds of playoffs. The Western Conference final begins tonight in Everett. Meanwhile in the East, the Lethbridge Hurricanes and the Swift Current Broncos will vie for the Eastern Conference title. The Silvertips and the Broncos have the edge on paper, but I like the underdogs. I'm all in for the Americans and the Hurricanes to take their respective titles.

Goodbye Bill Peters

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

Ah, the great moments of the Bill Peters era. There was … or … uh … yeah.

Really, it comes down to yapping at Eddie Lack from down the hallway last year – “make a (bleeping) save” – or his epic rant in February about how sending the same team out again would be “unacceptable” at which point the Carolina Hurricanes proceeded to send the same team out again for the next game. Never anything on the ice.

Peters spent four years with the Carolina Hurricanes, made some bad commercials for water-purification systems, never made the playoffs and exits with essentially the same record as his predecessor, Kirk Muller. Peters was a terrific tactician who never connected with his players. This season, they had clearly tuned him out by December. He should have been fired then.

Then again, if Scott Darling isn't grossly negligent in net, the Hurricanes are in the playoffs right now (or at least, would have been earlier this week) and Peters is still in charge.

Afternoon Line- Drew Doughty

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Jon Rosen tweets,

Doughty (1/2): Rob Blake & Luc Robitaille, they took this job because they want to win. They want to transform this team into its winning ways again. Whether or not they do a lot in the offseason, I don’t know, but...we have these young guys coming up that I think...

DD (2/2) ...are going to make a difference, and that shows me how much potential we have in the future, and I’m good with it and I’m happy to hopefully re-sign here.”
