Goodbye 68, Hello Russia

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Last week Jaromir Jagr confirmed he would be leaving the NHL to join Avangard Omsk of the Continental Hockey League, now 36 and with his heart set on an eventually return to his native Czech Republic and HC Kladno, the news all but certainly signals the end of Jagr’s oft brilliant, oft controversial NHL career after 17 years. For anybody who grew up in the hockey world ...
Its the back end off the Off Season all the important guys are signed. Yes Sundin is out there but for the sake of argument he isn't an important signing unless he signs somewhere other than Montreal or Toronto. Niether team needs him or should sign him. Montreal has way to much young talent ready for the big show to "use up" a roster spot for and aging albeit talented Sun...

Ray Emery's KHL Debut

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
This morning I managed to watch Ray Emery's KHL debut for Atlant Mytishchi vs. Spartak Moscow. Emery's Atlant lost 6-5 in overtime with the winning goal scored by Stefan Ruzhichka on the power play. Emery looked a little shaky, he let in a goal from the point with no one standing in front of him and was beaten on a break-away by a tied up forward whose shot seemed to su...
We hav all be able to enjoy two sagas this summer. The Mats Sundin Saga , and now that it is finally losing its edge . The Radulov saga. As we all know , Radulov bolted the NHL to the KHL for a boat load of money and all the vodka he can drink. In the confusion that followed no one was really sure exactly who was to blame ; Raddy for running for money , David Pollie not...

Thursday Thoughts...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Since my car decided to die on me last night I'm stuck at my computer instead of enjoying my wonderful California summer. So here are some thoughts based on stories I've read on ESPN.com the last two days: [u]Phoenix Coyotes Staying in the Desert?[/u] I'm not sure I believe Gary Bettman's argument that hockey can succeed in the desert, but if someone is willing to tr...

Yann Danis Going to KHL

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Yann Danis has reportedly signed a deal with the KHL's Amur Khabarovsk.
Dmitry Chesnokov reported about 36 minutes ago via twitter: Nothing new to report, unfortunately, on the Kovalchuk-KHL developments. KHL is still offering 1-3 year contract. It seems unlikely that Kovalchuck will take a 3 year deal in Russia hes looking for long term

Times Like These

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Tragedy, almost always, makes people reassess their lives. When something terrible happens we try to understand the 'why' part of the tragedy...and more often than not, we are still left asking the question we started with. For some people 'faith' or religion helps to answer the 'why'. For others who might be less inclined to believe in things they don't see, the ...
With the NHL and IOC (supposedly) close to an agreement to include the world's best players to play in Sochi on February, there will be much debate on who will be representing their respective countries on the world's biggest stage. In this series of blogs, I will tell you who I would have on my team if I was choosing and why. Just like most championship teams, I'll s...

The Kovalchuk Effect

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
[img]http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT7uWEEoG-n0v7xWud8yaUK7VigxXGs2o-Up57hO1TiQMgw_VxM[/img] Ilya Kovalchuk is still a destructive thorn in the side of the New Jersey Devils franchise. Kovalchuk perfectly executed a blueprint that would set the Devils back, costing them as much as possible. First there was the notorious contract: 17 years for 1...
The unethical week continued for the Philadelphia Flyers when they signed winger Aaron Palushaj on Thursday. Palushaj (Puh-Loo-Shy), comes to the Flyers after spending the 2014-2015 in the KHL, marking the second time in as many days the orange and black have come to terms with a former player from the league. At 25 years old, the two sides agreed to terms on a one-...

The return of Kovalchuk

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The most heard argument AGAINST a return of Ilya Kovalchuk in the NHL is that he really f*cked the New Jersey Devils by leaving them for the KHL, a couple of years into a huge contract. In 2010 the Devils acquired Kovalchuk (and defenseman Salmela) in a deal with the Atlanta Trashers for Oduya, Bergfors, Cormier and a 2010-1st round pick. Atlanta was unable to resign Koval...
As you could tell by the title of the article, this article is about Russian hockey players and what in the world is going on with them. Hockey is a business and for the apparent stereotype for Russians is to be number one. The question is whether or not these Russians are looking at that at this point in there careers. This article will look at four Russians in particular...
