Where Has The Time Gone

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Miami Herald,

Jacques Martin will coach his 1,000th regular-season game in the NHL tonight, a milestone tinged with elation and reverence as he remembers his mentor, close friend, former colleague and idol, the late Roger Neilson.
Martin will become the 12th coach in league history to accomplish the feat and tie Neilson, who was the Panthers’ first head coach.
‘‘I feel honored to still work in this league,’’ Martin said of the milestone. `I’m wondering where the time has gone.’‘

Khan(!): Hasek Out Sunday, Chelios Possible

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

According to the DD Captain,

Dominik Hasek came in for treatment on his sore thigh but did not go on the ice and won’t dress for Sunday’s game vs. Colorado, as Chris Osgood gets his second straight start. Chris Chelios (groin) said he thinks he’ll be able to play, but coach Mike Babcock said it would be a game-time decision.

A Rudderless Ship

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Longtime poster from MLive, RWBill, has begun a thread over at the Godfather’s Message Board on the league’s unwillingness to address the number of shots to the head.

The NHL front office is surely the biggest collection of cowards in a professional league as this great Hockey Ship careens rudderless in stormy waters.  We’re all on board watching in horror with no way to right the ship while Captain Bettman is locked in his quarters playing backgammon with no concern for the welfare of the crew.  Concussions and injuries requiring hospitalization continue to pile up without so much as a peep from the NHL.

Janssen Gets Three Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the CP,

Cam Janssen of the New Jersey Devils has been suspended for three games for his hit on Toronto defenceman Tomas Kaberle during the second period of the Maple Leafs’ 4-3 shootout win in East Rutherford, N.J., on Friday night.
Kaberle, who was conscious and communicative after being taken off the ice on a stretcher, spent the night under observation in hospital.

added 5:09pm, from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

Of course, I can’t be completely happy with this decision because of the explanation.
Campbell’s statement did not mention that Janssen hit Kaberle in the head. If Janssen had hit Kaberle late but not in the head, it’s very unlikely there would have been an injury. There certainly wouldn’t have been the scary scene that followed the brutal hit. As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t even have been noticed. Late hits happen all the time. Guys shake them off and catch up to the play. Just another part of the game.
Like blows to the head, unfortunately.

Pointing Fingers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Hockey News,

In a season of failure and disappointment for the Edmonton Oilers, Raffi Torres and Joffrey Lupul find themselves unwilling but worthy poster boys for expectations unfulfilled.
After coming within a win of a Stanley Cup celebration against the Carolina Hurricanes last spring, the Oilers face the prospect of missing the playoffs in the Western Conference altogether.

Fixing The Blackhawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Wayne Scanlan at Canada.com,

What will it take to turn things around? Probably, the club will have to leave the hands of Wirtz, a man so despised by hardcore ‘Hawks fans, they relished a trashy book by one of their own entitled: Career Misconduct: The Story of Bill Wirtz’s Greed, Corruption and the Betrayal of Blackhawks’ Fans.
In that book, lawyer and author Mark Weinberg sets out the pattern of Wirtz’s ownership, designed to make money and engage his offspring in family business. Winning a championship for loyal fans doesn’t enter into the picture….
“You don’t have to be winning the Cup all the time,” Hull says. “But you have to be in contention.”
To a ‘Hawks fan, contention seems a distant dream as long as people named Wirtz and Pulford are running—some say ruining—the show.

Touring the Sphere

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I think it sucks.  I think Edmonton trading Ryan (Jason, Smith, Smyth) sucks and sucks hard whether you’re an Oiler fan or not.  Not to belabor a point that’s already been made (because I NEVER belabor, right?), but how much should one fan base have to put up with?  How many Weights, Guerins, Josephs, Prongers and now Smyth (Smiths) do they have to lose?

I turn to BOA for their latest reaction and mystification at their own Deep Diggers.
