We Have Our Third Entry

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Hope the “dude” who felt discussing music wasn’t appropriate for a hockey blog is okay with our little contest.  Because, really, I’ll cancel it if you’re not happy with the content.

Nah.

Pete at Yzerman Is God finally got off his ass and provided us a contest entry.  Not familiar with the contest?  It’s the “Replace the Fire On Ice Red Wing Marketing Campaign With Something That Doesn’t Suck”.  Remember now?

Cool.  Away we go.

Ference & Montador Return From Africa Trip

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre Lebrun of the CP via Yahoo,

Both players returned from Africa changed men forever. They visited orphanages and schools in some of Tanzania’s poorest areas where Right To Play has set up programs to try and help the poorest of the poor, many of them infected with HIV or AIDS and most of them without any parents.
“I didn’t have my bag for the first three days,” Montador said Tuesday. “But not having a change of underwear or socks for three days, big deal. I never even thought about it when I was hanging out with those kids and realized they were wearing the same ripped shirt for the past week.
“And some didn’t have any shoes. It absolutely put things in perspective.”

Rotating Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

With so many goalies moving this offseason, facemask artists can bank on a backlog of work based on redesigns. The turnover hasn’t precisely been from A-to-Z but from Aebischer to Weekes comes pretty close.
While there hasn’t been a blockbuster deal like last year’s Roberto Luongo from Florida to Vancouver heist, several teams have tried to shore up their number one status. Not coincidentally, the Panthers helped themselves the most by pilfering Tomas Vokoun from the payroll-letting Nashville Predators and, in the process, moved themselves into the mix as a team capable of becoming the Southeast Division’s fourth different champion in four seasons.

New Sharks Logo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the San Jose Sharks,

The new San Jose Sharks Primary Crest, joined by eight supporting marks, is both a reimagination and a tribute to the original triangle logo used since the team’s inception in 1991.  The updated crest incorporates more Pacific Teal, the primary color of the Sharks, and emphasizes speed, strength and determination.  Smith, the designer of the original Sharks logo, created the new marks over an 18-month period in conjunction with Sharks players and front office.
