Yzerman Getting Noticed In Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Every time I hear Steve Yzerman talk, I’m more and more convinced that he will be the general manager of Canada’s men’s Olympic team sometime soon, maybe even as early as 2010 in Vancouver. I’m trying to put my finger on the quality that comes through when he speaks and I’ve concluded that it’s because, in an era of non-answers, where people in position of authority can talk at great lengths without actually saying much at all, Yzerman represents the polar opposite.

Zubov Sees A Specialist

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Five for Fighting,

The news doesn’t sound too good on defenseman Sergei Zubov. He didn’t skate today, as he went to see specialists for his ongoing injuries. And won’t skate for the next few days. Coach Dave Tippett called the situation “a concern.” When asked if the problem was the foot or the groin, Tippett said, “all of the above.”

Babcock Talks Wings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock participated in an NHL tele-conference today.

In each of his three seasons behind the bench Mike has recorded 50 wins and he has posted an overall record of 160-55-28. With their eighth consecutive 100 point season Detroit has tied the NHL record held by the Montreal Canadiens. With 17 consecutive season in the playoffs Detroit has the longest post season streak in pro sports.

The red Wings play in Chicago tomorrow, host Columbus Thursday and finish the regular season with the NBC Game of the Week on Sunday against the Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena.

Q:  Are you worried about just cruising into the Stanley Cup Playoffs

MIKE BABCOCK:  I’ve been on both ends of it in the Stanley Cup playoffs. When you’re the higher seed, the other teams have usually been battling like crazy and sometimes you’ve been drifting along. The great thing for us this year is our games down the stretch here have been against teams that are good teams that have played us real difficult. We had Nashville in here the other day. We’ll get Chicago here tomorrow or there tomorrow. And they’re battling for their playoff life. So they’ve given us really good games.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit News,

Kris Draper left practice early Tuesday with a tight groin and definitely will miss Wednesday’s game in Chicago, and likely the final two games of the regular season, as well.

“I can’t imagine him playing until the playoffs,” coach Mike Babcock said.

Re-Think The Lady Byng

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Marek at Upon Further Review at CBC,

As it’s getting close to trophy time in the NHL as writers fill our their ballots, perhaps it’s time to redefine what “sportsmanship and gentlemanly” conduct is and how the Professional Hockey Writers Association should decide on the Byng. Traditionally, the lazy man’s way to vote for the award was to look at the scoring leaders in the NHL and whomever had the least penalty minutes of the bunch got the nod.

But is there not another way to look at what being a Lady Byng winner should be? Should it always be the highest scorer with the softest touch? Or should we not look at the way players in the NHL talk about playing with respect for the game and respect for one another?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

TSN says the Sens/Habs game is the biggest match tonight.

I disagree, feeling the Canes/Caps game has more meaning in the playoff race.

Please vote and your opinion counts!
