Posted by David Minuk in Nightly Hockey Hits on October 4, 2009 — 5 Comments

Some news and notes from across the blogs:

  • The Hockey News:  Under the gun goalies.  Can’t disagree with that list.
  • Four Habs Fans:  Don’t start planning the parade just yet.  Probably a good idea to hold off on the parade planning.
  • Greatest Hockey Legends:  Sunday funnies.  Some very interesting tidbits.

  • Frozen Leafs:  Game two leaves Leafs with question mark in goal already.  What would the season be without a goaltending controversy two games in?
  • Maple Leafs Hot Stove:  Weekend bits.  For the latest Leafs news.
  • Hitting the Post:  Some notes from last night’s Wild game.  Are they missing the 1-2-2 of Lemaire?
  • SenSay:  Cheech for the top?  Have to agree that he won’t have success from the 3rd line.
  • NHL Fanhouse:  Nikolai Khabibulin’s costly turnover.
    Khabibulin
  • Hockey or Die:  Edmonton Oilers faceoff plan.  Some of those offensive players are going to have to learn to play in their defensive zone.
  • Working the Corners:  Sharks’ victory over Anaheim shows the roller-coaster going full speed right from the get-go.  What’s the point of playing pre season if you can’t be prepared for your 1st game?
  • Capitals Insider:  Ovechkin’s mom, Leonsis talk Olympics.  Looks like the majority favour the player’s position on this one.
  • Five for Fighting:  Modano out?  Who would spear Mike Modano?  Should be tarred and feathered.
  • Ice Man:  Good start to the Thrashers 10th season.  How good did Evander Kane look!! Speaking of those Thrashers, Al Strachan had an interesting nugget on the CBC Satellite Hotstove last night;
  • Flyers Goal Scored By:  Lappy jersey on its way.  He brings an excellent energy to the team.
  • Fire & Ice:  Lemaire disciplines Peters.  He’s an old school coach so you gotta expect harsh consequences if you do something he doesn’t like.
  • New York Rangers Blog:  Torts talks seventh defenceman and Drury.  Tortorella is a reporters dream.  Doesn’t have a filter.
  • Dobber Hockey:  Top defenseman prospects.  Good list.

    Wouldn’t that be the Winnipeg Thrashers? And wouldnt that cause confusion with the AAA team of the same name?

    Hey, those guys at the front of the season ticket line look familiar…where have I seen them before? There’re all wearing very cool touques…

    •Fire & Ice: Lemaire disciplines Peters. He’s an old school coach…

    …and Devil fans should expect a long season. Hey, did I mention I’m not much of a Lemaire fan?

    •Working the Corners: Sharks’ victory over Anaheim shows the roller-coaster going full speed right from the get-go.

    Interesting article. Much different from what the lead/title lead me to expect.

    Bob, we’d sure love that to come true.

    Amen to that, and much as Strachan is maligned he’s often proven to be correct…
