Attention ESPN: No Shootout In The Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

While reading the current print edition of ESPN the Magazine, I ran across a section called 'The Jump', which places odds on some of the upcoming events in sports. To my surprise, I read this:

+/-1 Number of playoff games before shootout system causes problems.
ESPN folks, you may want to read the primer on the shootout the NHL released back in July or at least sit down with E.J. and go over the changes to the game.

OLN Game On INHD2

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Searching around the TV, and the Stars/Nashville game is in HD via Comcast in Detroit on INHD2. I do hope sometime soon this type of information is no longer a surprise; OLN, Comcast, INHD and the NHL need to do a better job in communicating to the fans that this game was switched to INHD2 and presented live. Hope some of you see this and can enjoy the game. Note- The Dallas fans must not have received the memo of the time change for the game. There are no more than 3000 people in the arena as the game starts.

from Spector of Fox Sports,

With the NHL's Olympic break fast approaching, there are just over two weeks remaining for general managers to swing deals before the Mar. 9 trade deadline. There are also questions as to what issues could potentially affect player movement leading up to the deadline in the NHL's post-lockout world.

The Talk At The GM Meeting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

National Hockey League general managers began arriving in Las Vegas Monday night for their semi-annual meetings and will spend three days wading through a heavy agenda of topics that should keep them away from the poker tables, at least through the daylight hours. One of the major talking points will be scheduling and alignment options in new NHL. Sadly, the chances of seeing anything change for next year are slim because the league is already well underway in terms of setting next year's schedule and matching the divisions against one another.

NHL TV Coming To USA

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Gary Bettman in a recent interview- good news about NHL TV! from CNN Money,

How's the NHL using technology? We're providing video on demand to Comcast. We're also in talks with Apple to do video highlights on iPods. And we're starting an NHL TV Network in the U.S. next fall. We already have a network up in Canada. It will be 24/7 hockey--highlights, features, and old games.

Will It Be A Trading Frenzy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Read the columns and the blogs and the rumor mongers, and you'd think there would be 100 NHL players on the move between now and the March 9 trade deadline. Sadly, for those fans who plan to book the day off to track the onslaught of deals, it's not likely to happen. Oh, there'll be lots of tire kicking and exploratory talks and a thousand crumpled pieces of paper that day as GMs work out exactly what their cap room is. But in truth, GMs around the league say they expect the trade period to be pretty quiet.

Going Rate For Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

With the going rate of front line goalies being set at around +$5 million a year, the Wings are going to face a huge contract bump at the goaltending position. Both Legace and Osgood are UFAs and I am sure Legace will be shooting at that figure. Are there any other options available, would you pay Legace $5 million a year? I will hold judgment until after the playoffs, which is probably what the Wings management will do too.
