The NHL Equipment Manager

Mike Rucki of On Frozen Blog tells all we want to know about the Sports Jobs with Junior Seau…

Tonight is the premier of the NHL Equipment Manager episode of Sports Jobs with Junior Seau on Versus (11:30 p.m., again at 2:00 a.m.). Seau accompanied the Capitals for their trip up to Boston to open the season.

This first clip shows Seau struggling to pronounce “Leonsis” before he joins Ted in the box for the game. Note the inadvertent cameo by Kurt Kehl, the Caps’ VP of Communications.

Oilers Go The Online Route

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Tomorrow (Wednesday) night’s date in Tampa between the Lightning and the visiting Edmonton Oilers. It is one of two games this season the Oilers are unable to broadcast through traditional media outlets, according to Allan Watt, the team’s vice-president of communications and broadcast. As a result, for the first time in their history, the Oilers are making the game available on their website. Game time is 5:30 MST; but the broadcast will kick off 15 minutes earlier with a pre-game show.

Watt suggested the Oilers were “venturing into new territory with this webcast” (true) and that it would provide fans with “a unique new format to catch the game” (also true).

To enhance the overall viewing experience, the play-by-play team of Kevin Quinn and Louis DeBrusk will be tweeting with fans throughout the broadcast via Twitter.

Who Do You Want To Follow?

from CBC,

Online viewers will have personal control over a near-ice-level perspective as the Hockey Night in Canada All Access Cam makes its debut in Friday’s telecast of the Montreal Canadiens’ centennial anniversary game against the Boston Bruins.

The new camera will give viewers logging on to CBCSports.ca total freedom to choose where they focus their attention during the pre-game festivities and after the puck drops at the Bell Centre.

“It’s a cool innovation. We’re always trying to bring the event to the viewer,” said Hockey Night in Canada executive producer Sherali Najak.

Developed by Immersive Media in Calgary and sponsored by Chevrolet, the circular camera, smaller than a soccer ball, has 11 lenses working simultaneously. The different views are pieced together by computer software, giving online users a real-time 360-degree view of the action.

Does Junior Seau Know Hockey?

from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,

Next Wednesday (on Versus) is the episode featuring Seau as an equipment manager for the Washington Capitals. He spoke with us recently about working that sports job, gauging the toughness of hockey players and the impression Alex Ovechkin(notes) made on him. That, along with talk about his three days as a reporter for Sports Illustrated, concussions in the NFL and NHL and attempting to be a TV star after football. Oh, and a strange moment involving man-on-man tickling. Enjoy.

On a player to player basis, who has more equipment: Football or hockey?

Oh, definitely a hockey player. There’s so much more going on. They wear leotards underneath those pads.

What’s that one stud’s name?

Ovechkin?

Yeah, Alex. Watching him, you’d think that he would be a prima donna. That guy is a jokester. He lightens it up. The reason why the Capitals are doing so well is basically because the guy puts it in perspective. He’s not bigger than anybody on that team, and he cares for the players in that locker room, which I got to see firsthand.

NHL Network- Power Play

The Power Play has been on the NHL Network for a few weeks now.

What do you folks think about it if you catch it on the NHL Network or if you listen in on XM or Sirius?

I must admit, I have not followed it closely since I normally listen to two radio streams between 4p-7p, but I have promised myself to pay more attention to the show.

Milbury On Goodenow

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,

For a moment during Hockey Night In Canada, Mike Milbury seemed ready to pull off his shoe and use it on Ian Pulver. The big guy was sputtering over Pulver’s rules-are-rules attitude to a suggested solution for an NHL problem.

Pulver, a Bob Goodenow acolyte and now a player agent, defended during the Hotstove segment the regime of Goodenow, the former NHL Players’ Association executive, to which Milbury, face red, said, “That was the most untrusting guy in the goddamned world.”

  The expletive wasn’t needed, but Milbury had it right about Goodenow.

Milbury 30 Years Behind In His Thinking

from David Staple of The Cult Of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,

After the first period of the Edmonton Oilers-Vancouver Canucks game, commentator Mike Milbury of the CBC, who didn’t exactly cover himself in glory as the general manager of the New York Islanders, offered the following to Oilers management:

“They got to find the rats and get them off the ship because in this situation guys will start to reveal their character, guys who don’t want to get hit in the corner, guys who don’t want to play tough and dirty. You might as well get rid of them.”

And exactly how Mr. Milbury, in this age of guaranteed contracts and the salary cap, are you going to do that?

Sherry Ross With The Call

via Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils radio color analyst Sherry Ross became the first woman broadcaster to provide play-by-play for a full 60-minute NHL game in English during tonight’s 3-1 Devils’ win over Ottawa on WFAN-660 AM.

Ross filled in for Matt Loughlin, who missed the game because the death of his father in law. She did the play-by-play for one period during a 1993-94 game in Washington. Gary Thorne, the Devils’ TV play-by-play announcer at the time, was late arriving because of travel problems so Chris Moore shifted from radio to TV and Ross did the play-by-play on the radio for the first period.

This was the first time she did the full game as the play-by-play announcer, though. Former Devil Rob Skrlac filled in as the color analyst.
