Wayne Not Happy- Gordie Could Have Scored

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the East Valley Tribune,

Gretzky, who said the callups would not come today, singled out forward Shane Doan, defenseman Keith Ballard and goalie Mikael Tellqvist as those who played the proper way and didn’t object when it was suggested that it looked like some of his players quit during the game.
“Other than a few guys, we didn’t play hard the first two periods,” Gretzky said. “I don’t care who’s on the other side. Gordie Howe in a Red Wings uniform at the age of 72 might have got a goal in the first two periods against us. It was a pretty bad effort.”

Too Many Hangings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kamloops This Week,

There was a time when having a jersey number retired was seen as the greatest honour a team could bestow upon a player and, in normal circumstances, that player would be regarded as one of the greats in history, not only with the franchise but also within the league.
It’s always important to recognize heroes and their achievements but to glorify them into god-like stature is a bit much from where I sit.
Case in point was the Mike Vernon soiree in Calgary this week. It took one hour to salute a hometown hero who played his minor, junior and pro hockey in the foothills city in a career highlighted by the deliverance of the 1989 Stanley Cup.

Something Special About The Pens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

It isn’t just in Pittsburgh that fans are getting caught up in the Penguins’ improbable vault from second-to-last place in 2005-06 to fourth place in the Eastern Conference this season.
“There’s a Penguins craze building like a big wave, and it’s not only in Pittsburgh but everywhere else,” national broadcaster Bill Clement said yesterday. “It’s to the point where almost every person I speak to says they love to watch the Penguins more than any other team. You can tell there’s something special when hockey people want to watch the Penguins all the time.”

Modin Close To Re-Signing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

With nine days left before the NHL trade deadline, the Blue Jackets appear to be preparing for a fire sale.
Right winger Anson Carter is likely gone, with Vancouver, Pittsburgh or Carolina his likely destination. So is defenseman Bryan Berard, if the Jackets can find a taker.
But one player isn’t going anywhere. At least that’s how it looks.
Left winger Fredrik Modin is expected to sign a multiyear contract extension with the Blue Jackets later this week.

All Kinds Of Options For Billy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Blues President John Davidson says the team has several options when it comes to Guerin, but sources say the club wants to capitalize on his trade value.
“Listen, here’s where it is with Billy: Billy didn’t play in the playoffs last year, and Billy didn’t play the year before because there was no hockey,” Davidson said. “Billy is a guy that, you never know, if he did get traded, and that’s a big if, he may want to come back during the summer. If we miss the playoffs and Billy’s here and we didn’t re-sign him, we’d be caught with nothing. That’s not a good thing for the future of the St. Louis Blues. There’s all kinds of different options with a guy like Billy.”

“Beat” The Sabres

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

I suspect that the opposition’s mantra will be “pound them - knock ‘em to the ice at every opportunity - wear ‘em down - it will pay off in the third period.” This mantra is especially popular with Buffalo’s three eastern Canadian rivals, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, who will meet the Sabres eight times between now and the playoffs.
The Maple Leafs are brazenly open about their feeling that the way to beat the Sabres is to out-tough them, a tactic that will be even more obvious when the Leafs get Darcy Tucker back in their lineup.

Why Not Use CNBC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ice Block,

Today’s three NBC games start at 3:30 pm eastern. The games are regional, although most of the country will get Pens-Caps. If you have Center Ice, you can get the other two games on there.
What’s on CNBC at 3:30? Paid programming until 6:30.
There has to be some sort of deal the NHL and NBC can work out to get a bonus game on that network. No, it’s not going to be any sort of ratings monster, but CNBC is on basic cable on many systems and any extra accessible hockey would be good for the league right now, even if a lot of marketing has to be done to let people know it’s there.
