Proper Treatment May Have Saved Cherepanov

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

What was the cause of death?

Russian authorities have publicly stated the 19-year-old Cherepanov died of a pre-existing condition known as “chronic ischemia,” which in layman’s terms is a lack of blood flow to the heart.

Doctors here in North America, though, are skeptical that was the cause of death.

“I would say it’s highly unusual, virtually unheard of, for an elite 19-year-old athlete to have chronic ischemia,” said Dr. Anthony Colucci, the Detroit Red Wing team physician and emergency room doctor who saved the live of Jiri Fischer when the former Red Wing defenceman, like Cherepanov, collapsed on the bench during a game on Nov. 21, 2005.

After Eight Years In The Minors, MacIntyre Gets His Shot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robert Tychkowsky of the Edmonton Sun,

Steve MacIntyre has been waiting his whole life for this game.

He rode a lot of buses, jammed his six-foot-six frame into a lot of commercial airplane seats and traded punches with more hungry tough guys than he cares to remember for this chance.

So, while most people wouldn’t consider a road tilt in Anaheim and a possible fight with George Parros to be the best day ever, it’s going to rank right up there for the big-hearted 28-year-old.

Captain Serious

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Anne E. Stein at ChicagoBlackhawks.com,

Last season, rookie Jonathan Toews was known by teammates as “Mr. Serious.” This season, thanks to being named the third-youngest captain ever in the National Hockey League, his nickname’s been upgraded: The Winnipeg native is now known as “Captain Serious.”

“I love it when I hear him called ‘Captain Serious’ because it’s so true,” says his mom, Andrée Gilbert. “Just recently I read an article quoting the hockey coach from Shattuck-St. Mary’s who coached both my sons. He said that hockey-wise they’re very similar, but Jonathan plans his days three or four years ahead of time, and David [drafted by the New York Islanders this year] flies by the seat of his pants. Jonathan’s been serious and dedicated since he was very young.”

Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I’m sure the mandate on other teams, what they’re saying is, ‘Just move your feet, get inside and they’ll take penalties.  I don’t think we’re working anywhere near hard enough. We’re not working in the tough areas to get enough done.

“I can’t point to one area where I’d say we’ve been satisfied, but I know these guys have it in them. We’ve worked hard before, and that’ll be a staple of our hockey club. We’ll outwork teams.”

-Ducks coach Randy Carlyle after losing to the Kings last night.  More on the game from Dan Wood of the OC Register…

Colorado Management Takes Some Heat

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

So where are we now? We’ve got a team that is 0-3, one that has allowed 13 goals and blown all three games in the third period, that’s where. You’ve got a starting goalie with a saves percentage worse than a drunk preacher, and a team that has zero confidence in him. No, nobody has explicitly said that, and never will. But it’s the truth.

Budaj is a good kid, who wants to succeed and his teammates do like him. But liking someone and having confidence he’ll make the tough save in the really tough moments of a hockey game are two separate things.

The fact is, this team is a mess right now, and I lay the blame at the feet of a management group that, based on its off-season decisions, seemed to lose their minds over the summer.

Any Other Teams Doing This?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Working the Corners,

SAN JOSE – The San Jose Sharks and Comcast SportsNet Bay Area announced today that they have reached an agreement to have the local blackout lifted for nine 2008-09 San Jose Sharks games that are not scheduled to be televised on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

The move will allow those local hockey fans who subscribe to the Center Ice hockey package to view all of the Sharks 82 regular season games on television.

Looks like a trend may be developing- via a press release from the Phoenix Coyotes…

Phoenix Coyotes Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Michael Bucek announced today that the National Hockey League has lifted the “NHL Center Ice” blackout in the Phoenix region for 19 Coyotes games.  Coyotes fans that subscribe to the “NHL Center Ice” package will now be able to see 78 of the Coyotes’ 80 remaining games on television this season
