Addressing The Issues Of The Day

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

Two completely unrelated incidents. Two major migraines for the NHL.

In Vancouver, Alexandre Burrows alleges Stephane Auger influences the outcome of a game to get back at him. In Pittsburgh, the Penguins’ television producer hides a replay that would have given Philadelphia a goal.

Let’s do the Canucks story first:

Vancouver fans will hate to hear this, but the best thing Alex Burrows could do for himself and the organization is apologize


One question I have about the Burrows claims.  I wonder if he would have said anything if the Canucks would have won the game?

Careful How You Tweet

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,

Veteran producer Mark Askin is working tonight’s Carolina-Toronto telecast, but his employer, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, will sit him out for two games in the future.

  Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports, refused comment on Askin’s putdowns of Hockey Night, but called it an “unfortunate incident.”

  Truth and Rumours reported yesterday that Askin, a former Hockey Night producer, had been sharply critical of Hockey Night on his Twitter account for several weeks.

  His harshest commentary was directed at Don Cherry whom he called on various tweets as arrogant, a buffoon and “chicken shit.”

FSN Pittsburgh Under Investigation

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,

The NHL is investigating Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh for not sending all available camera angles to league headquarters in Toronto for Simon Gagne’s apparent goal that was under review against the Penguins last Thursday, the Daily News has learned.

FSN Pittsburgh, who had the game’s only video feed, allegedly sent all of the camera angles of the replay except the one that clearly showed the puck over the goal line.

Comcast SportsNet elected to not use their own video feed during the game to save money on production costs, one SportsNet employee said on Monday.

All The 3D TV Talk

Ken H., a moderator at AVSForums, points out the numerous stories about the 3D broadcasting news.

It looks like you will need a new TV plus a new satellite or cable box too.

Sounds great and I would imagine hockey would look great in 3D, but first let’s concentrate on delivering all NHL games in HD!

Hotstove Talks Winter Classic

from CBC,

Hockey Night in Canada’s Hotstove Panel added their thoughts on the future of the outdoor game, after Hockey Night in Canada analyst Elliotte Friedman shared that the event has generated interest as far south as Dallas.

Jerry Jones, owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, has expressed interest in hosting the NHL’s Winter Classic at the new Cowboys stadium, Friedman said.

“It would be a huge financial windfall, but of course, it wouldn’t be a true Winter Classic,” said Friedman.

The latest Winter Classic matchup, between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park on New Year’s Day, was widely acclaimed as the best in the event’s three-year history.

Major networks and the NHL are now more excited about the Winter Classic than the Stanley Cup playoffs, said host Ron MacLean.

continued and LeBrun mentioned during this segment that Thrashers GM Waddell wants an answer on the Kovalchuk contract situation by Monday.

Canada Deserves A Winter Classic Game

from Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star,

Friday’s NHL outdoor game at Fenway Park is creating a fair bit of excitement around the CBC.

But as much as Hockey Night In Canada executive producer Sherali Najak is looking forward to using his Green Monster camera and capturing the history of the first NHL game played in the house that Ted Williams built, there’s one thing that would make it even better for him and the CBC: another game in Canada.

“That would make a huge difference for us,” Najak says, recalling the initial outdoor game in Edmonton. “The buzz on Canadian soil is always more special for Canadian fans.

“Hockey is our game and people will watch regardless. But when you take over an NHL city with an outdoor game, it’s something special.

“I think the country deserves a game here.”
