As Expected…The Delicate Genius Chimes In

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Not surprisingly, Mitch Albom has graced Wing fans with his viewpoints.  We should have expected it. 

Sure, I know.  He ignores the most successful team in the state’s history 50 weeks out of the year.  He has zero credibility in the Wings room or in the minds of any reasonable Wing fan.  Like his large buddy at the Detroit News, Albom writes exactly nothing about Detroit hockey until he absolutely has to…when the playoffs roll around.

Mark Messier’s #11 Retired in Edmonton

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the AP,

After his No. 11 jersey had been raised to the ceiling on Tuesday, Messier took a final lap of the ice in the old building where he helped turn the Oilers into a dynasty. The sold-out crowd roared loud enough to shake the arena.
Messier, the NHL’s second-leading career scorer, was already in tears when he finished his skate with the Stanley Cup and placed it on a table at center ice. His three-year-old son, Douglas, wearing a vintage Messier jersey, promptly jumped into his arms as the crowd again cheered.
“I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your support,” Messier told the 16,839 in attendance. “(The Oilers are) an institution in the world of sports.”

Something Finally Goes Right for Panthers

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Ginsberg at the AP via SFGate,

The Florida Panthers dealt two talented players before the trade deadline, then blew a three-goal lead against the Washington Capitals. So who could blame them for thinking the worst when the game went to a shootout? Florida was 0-7 in shootouts and 1-13 when extended beyond regulation, but all that changed Tuesday night.
Jozef Stumpel and Ville Peltonen scored in the extra session to back a three-goal effort by Olli Jokinen, and the Panthers salvaged a 6-5 victory.

It’s not easy playing against your idol.
That’s what Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury faced against Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday at Mellon Arena.

How Will The Trades Shake Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For the better part of a week or so, Burke repeated the same essential mantra to anyone who would listen — that the prices his colleagues were demanding for player rentals were laughably high and no matter how much a team was prepared to surrender for help in the present, there was still going to be only one Stanley Cup parade each spring.
Burke spoke a true fact that was clearly lost on the New York Islanders, the San Jose Sharks and the Dallas Stars, all of whom joined the Atlanta Thrashers and the Nashville Predators in surrendering big parts of their respective futures in the hope they can win in the here-and-now.

Breaking Down The Trades

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Stan Fischler breaks down many of today’s trades…

RYAN SMYTH TO THE ISLANDERS
Nobody can laugh at the Isles anymore. So what if Snow gave Edmonton Robert Nilsson, Ryan O’Marra and a first-rounder. Smyth is the kind of dude who could turn Ted Nolan’s club into a Cup contender; provided, of course, that they get into the playoffs. And this without losing Jason Blake. Imagine the Uniondale forward wall once Alexei Yashin returns to the lineup.
