Report: Captains might select NHL All-Stars

NHL executive Brendan Shanahan presented an idea to GMs on Tuesday for a new All-Star Game format. Though Shanahan was reluctant to discuss the idea with the media, saying a formal announcement would be made soon, The Canadian Press reported that two captains will choose players from either conference to make up the teams for the 2011 game in Carolina. Fan balloting would still select the starters, and the captains would then pick the rest of the players from a pool assembled by the league's hockey operations department.

 

"We've worked for a little while now on this idea, this concept, closely with the NHLPA," Shanahan said. "They like the idea. Some of the players that they've talked to — potential All-Stars — they seem sort of excited and energized by it."

 

An NHLPA spokesman said the organization has been working closely with the league to "revamp" All-Star weekend...

Billick on D&C: Pats' focus in question

Fox Sports NFL analyst Brian Billick joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about news from around the league.

 

Asked about the Patriots' loss to the Browns, Billick said, "I don't know that I really believe in the term 'trap game,' " but he pointed to the team's focus on preparation as the key. Said Billick: "Certainly, the New England Patriots didn't come into this game going, 'Oh, we don't need to prepare for the Cleveland Browns, they're not going to beat us.' But was there that steely-eyed, focused determination during the week that you normally have when you have an opponent that you really feel like can contest what's going on? So, I think that tends to be more the case."

 

Looking at Sunday's game vs. the Steelers and their dominating defense — especially vs. the run — Billick said it's crucial that the Patriots attempt to have a balanced attack. "You...

Welker having hard time 'trusting' knee

Talking to the Boston Herald, Patriots' wide receiver Wes Welker said he is still struggling to completely trust his surgically-repaired knee.

 

“Yeah, it’s getting to the point of just trusting my knee and knowing that it’s going to be fine,” Welker told the Herald. “Not that there’s doubt, but subconsciously (when you’re out there), you think there might be doubt. So for me, it’s getting past that and getting that muscle memory back.”

 

Welker, who tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee in the final game of the 2009 regular season, explained that the current brace he wears (which is a lighter model than what he had been using) will most likely be part of his equipment even after this season

 

"I’ll probably keep this one the rest of...

Mashup: Amar'e angry with Bogut, Bucks

Last week, it was Kevin Garnett who was engaged in some heated discussions with Bucks big man Andrew Bogut. Tuesday night, Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire took his turn. Stoudemire objected to what he felt was an intentional elbow from Bogut during the Bucks' 107-80 blowout win. After receiving a technical foul for taunting Bogut, Stoudemire took his argument to the Bucks bench, engaging in a back-and-forth with Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles. "I think they might have amped [Bogut] up to play very physical out there," Stoudemire explained, adding: "It's a team effort, so I'm going after the whole team." Stoudemire, perhaps not coincidentally, was the player who gave Bogut a nudge last year on a dunk, causing Bogut to lose his balance and fall, breaking his elbow and wrist.
