The Demise Of The Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues’ lame-duck management dumped their (Sillinger & Weight) salaries and got table scraps in return. There is no earthly reason to pay NHL prices to watch AHL hockey –- which is what the Blues offer now that their top goal scorer and top point-getter are gone. The Lauries are still trying to sell this franchise. In the meantime, they and their minions are working as hard as humanly possible to destroy the team’s remaining fan base.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Talk of (Mike) Sullivan being dumped has suddenly gone silent. Did the thoughtful coach suddenly remember how to do his job? Like players, did Sullivan simply go through a coaching slump? In Toronto, meanwhile, the sharp knives are once again out for coach Pat Quinn.

NHL Broadcasts

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Ken Schanzer, NBC Sports President, explained it as follows: "Let me start by saying that no sport televises better in HD than hockey. The access to HD needs to expand first, but it's the spectacle of the game that just shows better. It's not just about (seeing) the puck. It's the vividness of the whole sport." Then tell me Mr. Schanzer, why are you only televising one of three games a week in HD? HDTV owners are a funny sort, once we see a game in HD, we want all games in HD. All we hear is how the NHL is enhanced with HD, but we are getting minimal games and we want more! While on the topic of NBC, do you think you could spare a five minute wrap-up show after the games instead of joining a show which is already in progress? The almost fiasco at the end of the Wings/Stars shootout needs to avoided, and it would be if you had a post-game show. While on the topic of NHL broadcasts, the HD version of the OLN Flyers/Rangers game on Comcast will once again be delayed and can be viewed at 1:00am tomorrow and again at 8:00am. Why not use INHD2 to show the game live? To the local Fox Sports Net Detroit affiliate, get with it quickly. Don't you think we have waited long enough for Wings games in HD? The ratings are fantastic, best in the U.S., yet Detroit fans have no HD. Your production truck is capable of high definition, what is the delay?
