Bettman Talks Bertuzzi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Fox Sports,

NHL commissioner Gary Betman addressed the reinstatement of Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi at length Monday. "When Todd Bertuzzi was reinstated, the suspension had been 17 months long," Bettman explained. "During that period of time, Todd Bertuzzi lost a half million dollars in salary, $350,000 approximately in endorsements. He was deprived of the opportunity to play in the World Cup. He was deprived of the opportunity to play in two world championships and he was barred from playing professional hockey during the work stoppage in which 400 of our players did in Europe.

The Latest Word

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Maven and MSG Network,

-Prediction Dep’t: Marc-Andre Fleury (Pitt’s No. 1 overall in the 2003 Draft) will never be a better goalie than Jocelyn Thibault! Even with JT coaching him! -Eric Lindros may have had eight concussions, but he hasn’t lost his sense of humor. Here’s Exhibit E: Eric says, “I’ve been really working on stick-handling with my head up!” Try telling that to Stevens. -Chip Off The Old Block Dep’t: Mark Messier’s son, Lyon, looks like a winner. The 17-year-old defenseman just hooked up with the North American Hockey League’s Texas Tornado, back-to-back national champs. He played Junior B. last season for the Tecumseh Chiefs. Wisely, the lad will be wearing No. 3.

HDnet NHL Coverage

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

There seems to be some confusion if HDnet would be televising NHL games this year. So I emailed Mark Cuban, owner of HDnet and asked him. He replies with a simple yes, that HDnet would be televising the games again this year. Good news for HDnet subscribers, now if only Comcast would add them to their HD lineup, things would be a lot better for HD viewers.

Early Winners

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

After the unrestricted free-agent free-for-all that took place during the first three weeks of the relaunched NHL, the league -- on paper at least -- is starting to take shape. Teams are consolidating their projected rosters as general manager focus on signing their restricted free agents. So, who are the early winners as the league leaves its fantasy camp phase and hurtles towards training camp?

Brodeur Offers Advice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

Since everybody seems to be having so much advice for the netminders these days, the guy who may be the best goalie in the world, Martin Brodeur, wants to return the favour. He is offering advice for those who labour on the offensive side of the game. "Something that's not healthy in our game is offence. How many teams have offensive coaches? You don't see that." Brodeur certainly has a point. There are assistant coaches in the National Hockey League, but they seem to work mostly on the defensive aspects.

OLN Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Media Week,

OLN’s pickup of the NHL cable rights could engender yet another war between a cable operator and a network. According to a source close to the proceedings, NHL games will be blacked out in cable systems that relegate OLN to a digital sports tier, including all of Cablevision’s footprint and Cox Communications’ Phoenix system. While 90 percent of OLN’s carriage is on standard analog tiers, the network is likely to use the threat of a blackout in order to win total analog carriage, which would significantly boost its number of homes reached.
In a related story from Media Week,
Not only did it snatch away cable rights for the National Hockey League for the next several years last week, but now Comcast/OLN has set its sights on landing Major League Baseball’s Sunday-Wednesday-night cable package.
