Wig Night

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Philadelphia Flyers,

The Philadelphia Flyers invite their fans to be a part of history and help the team break the Guinness World Record for “most people wearing wigs at a single sporting event” when the team takes the ice at Wachovia Center against the Chicago Blackhawks. All fans will be given a FREE orange wig and prompted to wear them during the game to “orange crush” the current record (6,213 fans) set by the Detroit Pistons on March 19, 2004 at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

The Hunting Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marcie Garcia at NHL.com,

(Tim) Thomas, 32, grew up in Flint, Mich. and though he didn't hail from a particularly large family, he found his immediate family was a tight-knit bunch. He remembers he and his brother used to shoot bows in the backyard of his family home. His grandfather, Guinther, was the first to take 12-year-old Thomas hunting. It was just a natural part of growing up. "It's pretty common for men in Michigan to go hunting," he said. The main challenge in the sport is to attain a "perfect shot" in order to make a clean kill.

Moose In An Angry Mood

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TBM at NBC Sports,

Each week, we take one player and exile them to the outer reaches of the game for a poor performance. This week's winner: Derian Hatcher of the Philadelphia Flyers. Signed as a free agent last summer, the plodding Hatcher seemed an odd fit for the new NHL. In fact, he was a horrible fit, often resembling a man trying to flag a cab on the freeway. When coach Ken Hitchcock was fired, Hatcher was an NHL worst -10 on the season, and the Flyers were left to ponder the fact that he is signed through 2009.

The West Losses Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

Honest, this wasn't, and still isn't, intended to be another rant about the schedule format that the NHL will stick with, at least through next season. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt and the e-mails. But the point is, this is one of the reasons the system stinks. After playing in Denver, the Caps move on to Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary, and then, as incredible as this seems, don't have another game outside of the Eastern Time Zone the rest of the 2006-07 season. They never have to change their watches, but the NHL's fans, and especially the season-ticket holders who pay the freight in this league, are being short-changed.

Picking On Brisebois

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater's mailbag at the Denver Post,

Hi, Adrian. I have a question about Patrice Brisebois. Every day I'm reading on the Avs official forum, and there are entire threads about what an "awful" hockey player Brisebois is. He is solid at both ends of the ice and a tremendous passer. Is he that bad, or just an underrated player that deserves some credit? -- Patrik Nilsson, Malmo, Sweden Patrik - Brisebois is one of those guys who just gets picked on more than he deserves.

Cullimore May Be Available

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Chicago Tribune,

Defenseman Jassen Cullimore was scratched for a second straight game and his situation has the potential to create a problem for the Hawks. It's believed the Hawks would like to trade Cullimore and his $1.9 million salary. But in order to trade him, they need to play him so teams can have a look. But he also needs to play well to get value in return, and that's something Yawney said Cullimore hasn't done.

The Video Technician

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Middlebury Campus,

Ryan McQuillan '05.5 cannot hide himself in a hockey organization: his love for the game is too out-in-the-open. McQuillan has gone pro. He has reached the highest level of hockey the world has to offer. As a video technician for the Los Angeles Kings, his main job is to edit NHL game tapes to the specifications of men more directly associated with the winning and the losing ends of the outfit. If he is told to isolate the shifts of Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, he does so, leaving all else on the cutting room floor. As, a native New Englander, McQuillan's team is still the Bruins, but he "wouldn't mind seeing the Kings win a Cup."

Pull The Trigger

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vallejo Times-Herald,

In a perfect world, Wilson would be able to wait until the trade deadline before pulling off a deal with the highest bidder. Unfortunately, the Anaheim Ducks and Buffalo Sabres also have strong netminding tandems, giving teams younger and cheaper trading alternatives. Now would be a perfect time for the Sharks to strike on a deal. Philadelphia and Phoenix are already desperate for help between the pipes, while Boston, Columbus and St. Louis don't have a proven starter among them.

Sabres Face Nolan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

..."If you don't know the direction, you're going to getlost," Nolan said. "If you don't know where to be in certain situations, our team is going to be lost. Everybody has to be going in the same direction. You have to pay attention to your surroundings, know where you're going. You have to figure it out." It was vintage Ted Nolan. He coached in Buffalo for only two seasons but left an indelible mark on Western New York. The Sabres were among the most beloved teams in franchise history under his watch. They were known as the hardest-working team in hockey, a group of rough-and-tumble players - wrapped around goalie Dominik Hasek and, ahem, leading scorer Brian Holzinger - who won the Northeast Division title in 1996-97.
