Observations

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Zipay at Newsday,

Columbus’ Sergei Federov is 3-3-6 and a minus-2 in 12 games. He’s an aging superstar on a young team on the rise ... The Blues’ Doug Weight. Another vet in trouble. He has no goals and two assists in 11 games ...

Pittsburgh reps have been following the Stars from city-to-city. The hunch: Assessing Dallas G Marty Turco and/or defensemen.

Jagr Bothered By Slippery Stick

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Daily News,

Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr ain’t happy with his twigs at the moment. And he believes that while much fuss has been made about his getting used to a new center, his modest start to the season is also due to unfamiliarity with his hockey sticks. But there appears to be little he can do about that, because Reebok doesn’t make his preferred model anymore.

“Look at this - just touch the stick, how slippery it is. How am I supposed to shoot?” Jagr said, disgustedly trying to get tape to stick to the ultra-smooth surface of the RBK sticks he’s felt stuck with this season.

Anson Carter 100%

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fromm Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Ex-Bruin Anson Carter hoped to kick-start his career with a return to Edmonton this fall, joining the Oilers on a tryout basis, but suffered a concussion during the first shift of his first exhibition game. Tryout over. “He’s fully recovered and ready to go now,” said his agent, Pat Brisson, who also guides the career of one Sidney Crosby. “Let us not forget that he had a career high of 33 goals a couple of years ago.”

Oilers Need Some Guts

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

...But MacTavish doesn’t have enough guys with grit wearing those wimpy new Oilers uniforms.

The coach desperately needs to have some brave hearts here to ride beside the talented trio which will eventually take the Oilers from the bottom rung of the standings, where they sit this morning, to much greater heights.

The skill of Ales Hemsky, Sam Gagner and Andrew Colgliano needs to be matched with some intestinal fortitude if they’re going to be able to get the space to create the goals.

Hot Kovalchuk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Blueland Blog,

So as fans, how should we show our appreciation for Ilya Kovalchuk on Tuesday night?

* A KOV-AL-CHUK chant during warm-ups? KO-VY, KO-VY? How about during the first faceoff he’s on the ice for?

* He had back-to-back hat tricks on the road. Can we throw hats on the ice for him on Tuesday since most of us weren’t there on Thursday and Saturday? It’d have to be during warm-ups or else you could spark a delay of game call. then again, you might want to save your hat for when he scores three at home. The way he’s playing it could happen any time now.

Perennial powerhouse Detroit could make another run for the Stanley Cup this season. St. Louis and Columbus have improved dramatically behind new coaches.

It may be the best division in the NHL, which will present new challenges for the Predators.

Leafs Salary Structure A Mess

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

Richard Peddie continues to insist that John Ferguson’s performance as Maple Leafs general manager will be evaluated at the end of the season.

The question is: Why wait that long?

In the wake of Ottawa’s signing of Jason Spezza for seven years and $49 million US, it is even more apparent what a mess Ferguson has made of the Leafs’ salary situation for this and the coming years.

The Flyers Must Be Stopped

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bud Barth of the Worcester-Telegram & Gazette,

The Philly hierarchy obviously is condoning, if not encouraging, this caveman mentality that goes far beyond the NHL toughness standard and enters the barbaric sphere of intent to injure — and injure badly.

Downie’s incident could have been excused as an isolated case. After Boulerice’s hit, it smacked of team policy. Now, with Jones’ infraction being perhaps the ugliest of all, how can you not consider conspiracy?
