Questions?  I Hope To Have An Answer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Do you have a hockey, NHL, or hockey blogging question?  If so, this is the place to ask.
In my NHL.com blog today, I ask readers to submit their questions here.
Hopefully, this will turn out to be a “reference post”, where hockey fans can ask away and get the correct answer.

note 10:06pm, post will remain “sticky” for a day or two.

Sens Have Over $6 Million Worth Of Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

“There are a few teams out there with $6-million goaltenders. I think we can handle it,” said Murray yesterday. “If something crops up for (Gerber), we’ll take advantage of it.”
Problem is, the Maple Leafs will be putting lipstick on their pig named Andrew Raycroft and golden oldies Ed Belfour and Curtis Joseph are sitting out there in UFA land, too. The buyers have a few options. The Ducks would probably like to move Ilya Bryzgalov, too.
Despite the belief the Senators are overpaying for their goaltending situation in light of Emery’s new three-year, $9.5-million deal announced yesterday, the fact is the Senators still aren’t the team paying the most for their puckstoppers next year.

Wednesday Questions

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 2 minutes after I hit “post”:  Almost forgot.  Happy birthday to my little doorknob of a brother.  If any of you see him on the town today or tonite rub his tummy and buy him a cheap warm one for me.

Tick, tock….tick, tock.  Just waiting for the summer to end.  Kenny’s done dealing.  Jimmy D’s had his annual senility-driven rant and it’s still plenty warm enough in Denver for Thomas and his pals to run the street in mascara and Dique jerseys.

Been sitting here for a few minutes considering what kind of brilliance I can provide you and I’m afraid the tank is shockingly empty. Boredom, in my case, can be a little dangerous. The last time I found myself with nothing to write this happened

Some Ho’s are, and have been, proud to be Ho’s.  And I think it’s time we all reflect on the contributions of Ho’s, and what they’ve meant to our society.  If you find that offensive, you need to take a long look in the mirror and asked yourself why you don’t place that kind of value on a Ho, especially one in particular.

That’s right, Don Ho died Saturday.  No Ho ever sang tiny bubbles like that Ho did.  America lost a Ho yesterday, a big-time Ho.

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.
