Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

The NHL season is about a week and a half old and we need more time to sort everything out. But here are at least six things we kind of, sort of, know:

Jeremy and those jerseys
Upon further review, the San Jose Sharks are wearing arguably the ugliest uniforms in any team sport in the history of team sports.

Stupid Questions

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Shoalts on his Globe & Mail blog,

Blake has the good fortune, if you can call it that, that it was caught in the chronic, or earliest stage, and can be treated with a drug called Gleevec and he is not expected to miss even one game for the Maple Leafs.

But he had the misfortune of having Damien Goddard of Sportsnet attend his press conference.

Goddard asked Blake if cancer put his “mini-slump” into perspective. Blake, who scored 40 goals for the New York Islanders last season, had yet to score in three games for the Leafs.

As jaws in the Leafs’ media centre dropped, Blake looked incredulous.

Trouble In Dallas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jennifer Floyd Engel (the other Little Ball of Hate) of the Star-Telegram,

Dear Jim Lites:

I want to start by apologizing. You wrote Stars fans and local media a letter back in July, and I have been remiss in not answering. Cowboys season has been front of mind, and y’all seemed so convinced that what you wrote was truth, not spin doctoring, that waiting seemed like a prudent course.

No longer.

Rumblings already have begun in the Stars locker room that what plagued this team last season has not been fixed. So I’ve highlighted some of your more cogent points about your fans and your team and responded as necessary:

The First Full Week

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

What are your thoughts on the first week of the NHL season.  I have been enjoying the games and it seems players, coaches and on-ice officials all have the same feel for the game.

Agree or not, feel free to comment.  I also ask readers of my NHL.com blog to leave their comments too.  Link to the blog will be posted when available.

Ducks Have Concerns

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

While any five-game sequence during the course of an 82-game NHL season can be misleading, the Ducks have encountered a myriad of problems that have included horribly undisciplined play, porous penalty-killing, shaky defensive-zone coverage and an overabundance of turnovers, both in their own end and in neutral ice.

Perhaps even more troubling is that, at least at this point, the Ducks are a one-line team, as it relates to offense, anyway. With center Ryan Getzlaf skating between his longtime buddy, Corey Perry, on the right side and Chris Kunitz on the left, the Ducks are dangerous. Otherwise, they have given opposing defenses and goaltenders no real cause for concern.

Legace Targets 60 Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

On Monday, two days after leaving in the second period of a 5-3 Blues win over Los Angeles with a “tweaked” right knee, Legace was reassessing his proclamation. He was back at practice bending and scooting with ease and said he will start in the Blues’ home opener against Nashville on Wednesday night. But as far as playing 70 games this season, probably not.

“Sixty would be good ... that would be a good mark, not to push it,” said Legace, 34. “We’ll see how it goes. I’m just going to take all the precautions in the world.”
