Attention San Jose Fans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Chen’s Hockey Blog,

Thanks to my FoxSports.com gig, I’ll be following up my post-playoff analysis of the Sharks with an interview with GM Doug Wilson (thanks also to the Sharks media relations folks for helping to set this up and PJ from Sharkspage). This is where you, the reader, comes in.  I’m going to arm myself with questions from fans, so if you’ve got a question for Doug, leave it here in the comments.

Bravo

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

from A2Y,

Look. I’m biased. Biased for Chelios? No. I think what he did was wrong, and I think he should have shook hands...even with Pronger, Niedermayer and that punk Perry. I’m biased against Dwayne Klessel, his self promotion, and the crap he continues to spew. His comment, “we’ve had our disagreements” is a prime example. Want more? Let me remind you. He’s claimed affilitation with NHL teams, the league itself...all false, and all to lure money from the simple minded.... On too many occasions Klessel has attempted to speak for the rest of us, behind the anonymity of a made-up name “for his own protection.” Another crock.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Carolina Hurricanes,

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has signed goaltender Cam Ward to a three-year contract. The contract will pay Ward $2 million in 2007-08, $2.5 million in 2008-09 and $3.5 million in 2009-10.
“Cam is one of the cornerstones of our team moving forward,” said Rutherford. “He has already built an impressive resume for himself at a young age, and we believe he is going to be one of the elite goaltenders in the National Hockey League for a long time.”

And You Know About Leadership…How?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So yesterday, displaying an ability to see into the future that is unrivaled and probably unnerving to a few of you, I predicted a certain degree of angst over the selection of one Chris Chelios as the first NHL Cold-FX Versus Geico Bigfoot Commercial Rodeo Leader of the Year Brought To You By Ford And Mark Messier.

But I couldn’t have foreseen the picnic basket full of pleasing cheddar that was dropped in my lap this morning.

Even More Perspective

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

This story is so good that I can’t give you just a few quotes.  But, I’m going to give you two relevant ones, and hopefully they will be enough to get you to read the rest. 

He’s so modest that during an interview with a reporter, he never mentioned a recent tribute from Chris Pronger, the ex-Blues captain now with Anaheim. Pronger invited Gassoff, then stationed in California, to a Ducks home game.

Bob said Chris had them show him on the JumboTron,” said Diana, his mom. “They interviewed Chris on the bench, and he said, ‘This is a great friend of mine, and he’s going to war.’”

Brett Hull is confident that the stick boy he once knew can take care of himself and his men. To the point that worries about Little Gasser’s current shift are almost misdirected.

“All I know,’’ said Hull, “is there’s going to be a lot more enemy casualties over there.’‘

KK and NHL.com Hockey Fan Photos

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

On Tuesday, Paul Kukla asked readers via his NHL.com blog to send in any photos and video they had documenting how they’ve been enjoying NHL hockey with their friends.  We’ve just started adding photos to the gallery here.

More to come! Keep sending them in!

Update June 1, 2007: Thank You!
Japers’ Rink graciously offered photos from his View From Your Playoff Seats flickr album, to be added to ours as well. There’s still plenty on his site that we didn’t steal, so go check it out.
Also, I’d like to thank P.J. Swenson who was the photographer responsible for many of the San Jose photos which we took from J.P.‘s flickr site. Great work!

Anaheim Ducks Rise To The Top

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

frm Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

The old cliché is that you haven’t lost a playoff series until you’ve lost a game at home.
It seems a little weak if you apply it to the Stanley Cup final between the Anaheim Ducks and the Ottawa Senators.
Given the way the Ducks are beating the Ottawa Senators, one could argue that even if the Sens don’t lose a game at home in this best-of-seven affair they still don’t win the Stanley Cup.
The Ducks aren’t just good at home, they are outstanding.

Bettman Talks Blackhawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Tribune,

“The rich, historical, traditional feelings [Chicago] fans have may be among the deepest in the league,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told the Tribune on Wednesday via phone from Anaheim, where the expansion Ducks and Ottawa Senators were skating in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. “There has always been something special about all of the Original Six clubs.”

I Do Wonder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Rangers Report comes up with the best headline of the day-  ““Wait, does it mean I have to show up every day?”, when questioning if Mark Messier is the right man for the Rangers asst. GM job.

The 3rd Line Needs A Name

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Randy Youngman of the OC Register,

But what about a nickname for the line? Don’t Pahlsson, R. Niedermayer and Moen deserve one now?
Hmmm. How about “Crash, Bang and Boom”?
Or how about “The Swede, The Farmboy and The Other Brother”? (Pahlsson obviously is the Scandinavian, Moen is the farmer who spends his summer working on the family’s 3,500-acre cattle and grain ranch in Saskatchewan and Rob Niedermayer is often overshadowed by brother Scott, the Norris Trophy winner and captain of the Ducks.)
Or how about “The Plowboys?”
