Kukla's Korner Hockey
from Bill Tiller of the Ice Man at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
Should the Atlanta Thrashers issue press credentials to bloggers who write about the team?
This question periodically gets kicked around the blogosphere from time to time. Those who supports such an idea believe it would allow them gain certain insight and information for their readers and would help the team tap into this new form of on-line journalism. There are some who even feel that these blogs…specifically sports blogs… are a natural evolution away from the so-call mainstream media….
Recently I asked a handful of these on-line journalist that make up Thrasherville’s “internet news agencies” what their thoughts were on the subject of press creds for bloggers.
from Andrew Mager of ZDNet,
If you know anything about sports, you know that people are obsessed with their favorite teams. If you know anything about hockey, that level of passion is exponentially increased.
Of the four major sports, the NHL has definitely done the best job of engaging with their fans in the social media world. Their Twitter and Facebook accounts are more active than the oil spill in the gulf (too soon?)
The face behind the National Hockey League’s social media presence is Steph Bagley, from Vaynermedia in New York. When I spoke with her today, she said “I can’t go to the party, I have to watch the game tonight.” Tough job huh?
While the Flyers and Blackhawks fight for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bagley will be focused on Twitter and Facebook, replying to messages and sharing fan’s thoughts.
Who wins and get ready fans for the on-ice action.
Read about it in my NHL.com blog today.

Today at my NHL.com blog, I take a look at the playoffs and even though Detroit has been eliminated, I plan to continue to keep watching.
In my NHL.com blog today, a few hockey observations.
Today at my NHL.com blog, I take a look at dealing with a game 7.
It’s funny, I’ve received a few emails today from people who are working, but finding it difficult to work, which is what I mentioned in the blog.
So are you at work or school and feeling the same way?
I discuss watching the NHL Conference Quarterfinal round at my NHL.com blog today.
Elimination games are near.
I am a sentimental type guy and had some fond memories when I saw the last two posts on the homepage of KK.
I’d have to go back a long time to find the names of Alanah and IwoCPO back to back with their posts.
Those two were the backbone of KK during our early days of existence. I am so glad to see them on the homepage again.
Many of you know Alanah has her hands full with Baby Lu(cy) and IwoCPO has been sailing his ship around the world.
Hopefully, they can stick around, at least through the playoffs!
I took a screen shot of their b2b post, just for history, you can see it below.
A day at a time folks, one game, one win, one loss, move on.
