Turning point?

Souray is on the right and pictured with (L-R) Actor Jerry O’Connell, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and Gloria Morales.  They were together at the Stanley Cup VIP reception after Game Two of the 2007 NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

Lecavalier’s Future and Tampa’s Salary Cap

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail,

Lecavalier also addressed a question about the Lightning’s future plans and the speculation that one of the big three – him, Martin St. Louis or Brad Richards – might be traded for salary-cap reasons.
“This week, they announced they’re going to keep the budget the same, or maybe even bring it up,” said Lecavalier. “You never know in hockey what can happen, but from what I hear and from what meetings I’ve had at the end of the year, we’ll keep the same guys.”

Give Chicago A Few Years

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

If the Chicago Blackhawks, as expected, take center Patrick Kane with the No. 1 pick of the NHL draft in June, they are probably setting themselves up to have one of the league’s most dangerous rosters in two or three seasons.
Nobody has been paying much attention to the Blackhawks because they have not been in the playoffs since 2002, but quietly the ‘Hawks have been assembling a fascinating collection of talent.
By 2009-10, their top two center men will be Jonathan Toews and Kane. The twosome will presumably be among the league’s top one-two center combinations.

Sens Still Have Faith

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Roy MacGregor at the Globe and Mail,

The Virgin Mary is onside.
She stands in the garden of St. Patrick’s Basilica on the corner of Nepean and Kent Streets in downtown Ottawa, a large Go Sens Go poster — complete with logo — on the church wall behind her. She wears a confident smile on her calm face and has her arms outstretched as if on the verge of celebrating a goal.
At this point, even one would be nice.
The faithful, it should be noted, are holding on to their belief — even with the Ottawa Senators down two games to none in the Stanley Cup final, even after being shut out by the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

Coach Murray & Daniel Alfredsson Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q. I just wanted to know, can you update us on Chris Neil, if everything went well with him?
COACH BRYAN MURRAY: He’s a father. He’s happy. He was in this morning. He went through the video that he missed out on yesterday. And he’s ready to play.

Q. What can Alfredsson do to be more effective tonight?
COACH BRYAN MURRAY: Get the puck in scoring position once in a while and put pucks to the net. He’s got to get some help. I don’t think there’s an individual player in this league or very few of them that can do it himself.
I think it becomes, in particular this time of year when everybody is playing great defense and working real hard, you’ve got to have a line going. And then you have a chance to be a productive player.
So it’s Jason and Dany and Alfy have to be doing what they do all playoffs with the exception of a game or two.

Q. Just want to clear that up -
COACH RANDY CARLYLE: All our players are available to play.

Brad May Enjoying The Ride

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Rocky Mountain News,

May, now, in his 15th NHL season, is halfway to getting his name engraved on the Stanley Cup for the first time, as the Ducks have built a 2-0 lead against the Ottawa Senators in the best-of-seven championship series that resumes tonight (6 MDT, KUSA-Channel 9).
“It’s incredible,” May said. “It’s been a great experience, but the dream is being the last team standing, so we haven’t accomplished anything yet. We’re certainly not complacent, I can promise that.”
Other than to say he enjoyed his time in Colorado, May prefers to leave it in the past.
“I’m happy to be here, and that’s no disrespect to where you’ve been,” he said.
