Mid-Season Returns

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

Fans of the Anaheim Ducks are delighted that Scott Niedermayer has decided to end his self-imposed retirement and return to the team.

But should they be? And what about all the other hockey fans? How should they feel about it?

The answer is that when you get right down to it, there is cause for concern for everyone in this situation.

Do A Little Research

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

A little R&D would help in a number of areas. For example, people are talking about the possibility of creating offense by going to 3-on-3 in overtime after five minutes of 4-on-4. Well, the league created 3-on-3 in overtime last year by decreeing that all coincidental penalties that either stretched into or occurred in overtime would result in 3-on-3 play. Since then, 29 minutes and 20 seconds of 3-on-3 has been played and there have been just two goals scored. If you extrapolate that over 60 minutes, you get an average of 4.1 goals per game, which is lower than the per-game average for 5-on-5 scoring.

America’s Next Wave

Blog: KK Hockey By Steve

One of many complaints that casual sports fans have about hockey is that there are too many “foreigners” in our league.  Which, by the way, is utter bunk because they support the NBA’s European and Asian outreach, and the Major Leagues are now making Hispanic players the norm. 

But, they do have a point.  The NFL, a league with 99.9999999% Americans in it, is the man in the United States right now.  The NHL needs some new and talented red, white and blue blood.

Islanders Travel With Dad

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

Last week, the New York Islanders hosted their fathers on a road trip through Atlanta, Florida and Tampa. Team captain Bill Guerin immediately informed the fathers of their curfew—no one was to be in the team hotel until after 1 a.m.

Defenseman Andy Sutton has been in the NHL a decade, but this is the first time he and his father, Nigel, have shared something like this.

“This is a huge thing. My dad is just like a kid in a candy story. He’s just so pumped. It’s a pretty special thing,” Sutton said.

NHL TV

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tripp Mickle at SportsBusiness Journal (paid sub.),

The NHL plans to broadcast its first live, video broadband programs on NHL.com in promotion of the Amp Energy NHL Winter Classic scheduled for Jan. 1 in Buffalo.

The first broadcast will be a Winter Classic preview show aired live from XM’s NHL studio at 3 p.m. ET on Dec. 28. The show will focus on past NHL and collegiate outdoor games and why the league is playing outdoors this year.

The second show will air two hours before face-off live from Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo

The live programs represent the first step of an ambitious effort to offer more Web-specific programming on NHL.com. Depending on their success, other live shows could follow from events such as the All-Star Game and Stanley Cup playoffs.

HD Is Growing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Four games yesterday and all were available in HD via Directv.  Not sure if that is the same for other satellite and cable companies, but it sure was nice to be able to watch every game in HD.

Now, if could only get HNIC in HD via Directv, life would be good.
