Ugly Detroit Loss

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Empty Netters,

What in the world happened to Detroit’s vaunted defense. It totally collapsed in the third period?

Hmmm, I have the same question & many more.  I was at the game and the 3rd period was not good, unless you are a Pens fan.  More on the game tonight.

Report- More Surgery For Forsberg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

From the never-ending-Peter-Forsberg-medical-news-department: I heard from a Swedish source that our beloved Foppa had another foot surgery a few days ago. I’ll get more definitive word on this soon hopefully, but that’s what I’m hearing.

more plus a look at the back issue of Joe Sakic…

Evening Line

“I kind of figured it was coming.  A couple times he yelled at me for not moving my feet. I just hope he holds everyone accountable no matter what number they’re wearing on the back.

“It’s all for the team now. I was upbeat and positive cheering guys on.

Winning’s fun, even when you’re sitting.”

-Scott Hartnell of the Flyers after being benched in the 3rd period today, a victory over the New York Islanders.  More from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post including the latest lower-body injury to Daniel Briere.

2009 HHOF Class

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of the CP via the Globe and Mail,

There will probably be a crowded class when the Hall opens its doors again next November.

Steve Yzerman is a lock to enter in his first year of eligibility and it’s hard to imagine Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Luc Robitaille not joining him. All four of those players were legitimate stars in their prime and each has won a Stanley Cup along with one of the league’s major personal awards….

Adam Oates and Doug Gilmour are the highest eligible players on the NHL’s all-time point list that have been passed over. Oates finished his career with 1,420 points — good for 15th overall — and Gilmour is a spot behind him with 1,414 points.

Pavel Bure, Eric Lindros, Steve Larmer, Mike Vernon and Dino Ciccarelli are among a long list of players who continue to warrant some consideration.

NHL GameCenter Live Review

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Benderoff of Eric 2.0 at the Chicago Tribune,

I’m loving the NHL GameCenter Live product. The video is sharp—no, not HD sharp, but the NHL is working on this—the quality of the feed has been excellent (not a single drop) and I can watch four games at once.

The product was quietly introduced last season but re-invented this year, said Andre Mika, the league’s senior VP for broadband. It’s filled with enhancements, including on-demand content from classic and recent games, a choice of audio feeds and alternate camera angles during select games….

The single game view can be enlarged to fit your computer screen.

An Original Six Flashback

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Paul Kukla at NHL.com:

I admit it, there’s a soft spot in my heart when I hear or think of the Original Six. Those two words bring back so many fond memories because I am actually old enough to remember when only six teams played in the NHL.

Growing up in Detroit, I was lucky enough to have a father who worked in the auto industry and was the recipient of a boatload of tickets to all the sporting events, especially Red Wings games.  I attended about 30-35 games a season for a span of about 10 years, and during that time, my love of the game was established.

Oilers Claim Boulerice Off Waivers

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the Edmonton Oilers:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today that the Edmonton Oilers have claimed forward Jesse Boulerice off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche and have placed left winger Steve MacIntyre on the NHL Injured Reserve List. [...]

Boulerice has played 170 NHL games with Philadelphia, Carolina and St. Louis, scoring 8-2-10 with 333 penalty minutes. He spent his first full season in the NHL with Carolina in 2002-03 and played a career-high 76 games with the Hurricanes in 2003-04.

Dear GBB: Welcome Back To Hockeytown

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’m not sure how Sidney Crosby spent his summer.  I honestly didn’t ponder it.  A2Y researchers from Grand Valley State followed him for a few weeks and reported back that much of that time was spent playing Chutes and Ladders at the Bettman estate with several of the other Commish-spawn. 

But that’s not confirmed and I’d like to ask you up front not to comment on it, or any other assumptions we’ve made about adoptions, American Girl gift exchanges, Facebook “pokings” or the like.

It’s just not mature, and certainly not in keeping with the standards we’ve established here.

Who’s Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers?

Blog: KK Members Blog By Slasher98

Coming from back-to-back wins in New Jersey and New York, where he blocked 77 of the 80 shots he received, Jean-François Drouin-Deslauriers is starting to turn heads.

The young Oilers netminder is slowly making a name for himself and vying for more starts in the NHL’s only ménage à trois with Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson.

In 4 games this season with the Oilers, Drouin-Deslauriers, has 3 wins to go with a 1,71 GAA and .951 Save %.

The 24 year-old goalie from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, spent the past two seasons in the AHL with the Springfield Falcons and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Penguins where he won a total of 48 games.

The 6’4’’ 200 lb Drouin-Deslauriers was drafted by the Oilers in the 2nd round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a one-way two-year contract with the Oilers worth $1,250,00 M ($625,000 per season) this summer. Therefore, Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini had to keep him in the NHL to start the season.

Deslauriers’ emergence will allow Tambellini to shop Dwayne Roloson before the trade deadline, without fear of going with a Garon-Deslauriers tandem in the playoffs (should the Oilers make it).

Drouin-Deslauriers is only owned in 2% of Yahoo’s Fantasy Leagues, so it’s time to pluck him off waivers.
