Penalty Maker

from On the Forecheck,

As a followup to last week’s piece about which players are drawing penalties more frequently than others, I’ve posted a publicly available Google Spreadsheet which shows updated numbers through Sunday night.

Caps & Their Bloggers

from the Washington Times,

No team in professional sports offers as much unfettered access to bloggers as the Caps, though several teams have rolled out special accommodations. The New York Islanders, for instance, created a special “blog box” separate from traditional media members, and other teams have provided credentials on a game-by-game basis. The growing number of bloggers has captured the attention of NHL officials, who are exploring whether a league-wide policy toward bloggers is needed.

“The NHL is looking closely at it,” said Caps chief communications officer Kurt Kehl, who served on a special committee to address the issue at a recent league meeting. “There is some fear of the unknown.”

Hockey Player Bloggers

from the Toronton Star,

Time was that when you wanted to learn more about a player or the game itself, you were limited to traditional forms of media. And, unless you wanted to head down the arena to boo, it was one-way communication.

Now, your favourite player might post a blog, he might be reading messages on social networking websites or he might have his own website on which he entertains comments and queries.

“Fans feel free to email me, ask a question or tell me I suck,” said Wade Belak, who started his own website as a way to keep family and friends in western Canada up to speed.

Hockey Blog Reading

From Joe Pelletier’s Hockey Legends,

There’s no shortage of great hockey blogs out there, and I’ve ranked my favorite blogs in my Hockey Blog Power Rankings. Ranked simply by personal preference, I keep this list on the right hand column, towards the bottom. Keep an eye on it as I will make additions as the season goes on.

Topping the list, as always, are my three favorite blogs: Lowetide, Kukla’s Korner, and James Mirtle. These are must reads every single day for me.

Looking At The Blog Box

from Eric McErlain at the NHL Fanhouse,

But if you had taken a trip to the “Blog Box” on Long Island on Saturday night, you would have seen something quite different: A group of fans segregated from the rest of the press who were only allowed guided access to Islanders players and no access to the visiting locker room at all. Most galling of all, many of the box bloggers trooped down to the Islanders locker room wearing Islanders jerseys….

All throughout the SI.com piece, you’ll see claims about how this “experiment”—one that comes complete with a couple of academics from a university in Pennsylvania who ought to be ashamed of themselves—is some sort of incredible innovation in sports media.

That’s actually the last thing that this deserves to be called. Instead, we ought to call it for what it is—a glorified fan club. That this farce is sponsored by Eklund, the least credible voice in sports blogging today, only makes the joke complete.

The First Full Week

What are your thoughts on the first week of the NHL season.  I have been enjoying the games and it seems players, coaches and on-ice officials all have the same feel for the game.

Agree or not, feel free to comment.  I also ask readers of my NHL.com blog to leave their comments too.  Link to the blog will be posted when available.

Progressive Caps

from On Frozen Blog,

We would have blogged with passion aplenty absent any intervention from the Washington Capitals, but in reflecting on the past year, we’re overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the team’s communications professionals, its athletes, and that filmmaker fella with the nice perch at Verizon Center. The very first comment left at OFB one year ago today was from Mike Vogel. The second came from Ted Leonsis. The next thing we knew we were being invited into Verizon Center’s press box and players’ rooms. What’s excited us most about that remarkable hospitality is its visionary democracy: the Caps have led the entire professional sports industry in laying out the welcome mat to committed bloggers, and there were times last season when a press box row was populated entirely by bloggers.

Without a doubt, the Caps are very blogger friendly.  I remember my first interview with Ted Leonsis…Phone rings at my home, “Hi Paul, it’s Ted”...

Looking Good In Red & White

My Dear Martine,

We could use you in Detroit.  It is my job to recruit any and all fans for our great hockey team. 

You will love following the likes of Zetterberg, Datsyuk and even Chelios (free food too).  Covering the greatest defeseman in the last ten years won’t be so bad either.

I can only dream of you in red, with the winged wheel in all of its glory!!!

With Anticipation,

Paul
