Enough Of Versus

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond at the Miami Herald,

I don’t like writing cellphone posts unless it’s breaking news or what have you. But I have about had enough of Versus’ so-called coverage of the NHL postseason. How is it that they pull away from a 3-3 game in Carolina to put on a crummy open to a game in Anaheim that wasn’t going to start for another 30 minutes, much less another Esurance commercial we all know by heart?

continued and George isn’t finished, another post here.

I have to agree with George.  I am not sure why Versus makes the decisions they do, but they sure are not catering to the knowledgeable hockey fan.

Covering The Playoffs

from Dave Strader at PhoenixCoyotes.com,

Hello again from on the road covering the Stanley Cup Playoffs for Versus.

This trip has been a true case of Planes, Trains and Automobiles for me. As I mentioned in my last blog entry, I drove my car from Glendale, Ariz., to Troy, Mich., before the playoffs began. After three flights to three different cities and several taxi cabs, I’m now on the train from New York City to Philadelphia for Game 4 between the Penguins and Flyers.

Last night at Madison Square Garden was a great playoff atmosphere. As I mentioned on our telecast, there are so many great venues and fans around the NHL, but there is something unique about MSG

Hockey Win Compared To Battles Of Lexington And Concord

from Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy,

Gather round, class: Professor Edwards wants to tell you about how the Bruins are like patriots who have thwarted the tyranny of the Habs. Or something like that. If you can remember the last hockey goal call that began “234 years ago yesterday, a bunch of rag-tag farmers stood up against the greatest fighting force in the world,” we’d like to hear it.

from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters,

But tonight, Edwards crossed the line in our book.

He basically compared the Bruins 4-2 win in Montreal to war.

We assume Edwards has never had anyone in his life impacted directly by war. Because if he had, he would not have made such a stupid, ignorant statement.

First Round Updates

If you are like me and want as much news about the playoffs, CBC has created the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs Blog and it is worth visiting on a regular basis.

I have been pointing to a few of the posts in recent days and have found them very informative.

If you want you news quickly and to the point, make sure to check out the ‘09 SCPB ( they should have found a shorter name!).

Ducks Fans Want Their HD

via Al Balderas of Ducks Blog,

A spokesperson for Fox Sports said that her office has been receiving a lot of emails from those of you who want their HDTV. Let’s just hope none of you are holding your breath.

While Fox Sports would like to bring you the games in the HD format, the spokesperson explained that “this economic climate has forced us to re-evaluate our plans. HD has been the most affected in this environment.”

The people at Fox apologize and hope you’ll continue to tune in.

Fans Decide What Is Worth Reading

from Tom Benjamin’s NHL Blog, .

..Anyway, I thought it was important to weigh in on whether HNiC should acknowledge the blogosphere in this way. Obviously, I think the answer is yes, but the show deserves a more thoughtful response than I could give in a few seconds.

Scott Morrison is right about the blogger who shall not be named, but he is wrong if he thinks ignoring the new hockey media is the answer to the accountability issue. Blogs are not going away simply because the mainstream media operates as if they don’t exist.

The accountability argument is more or less over. It really doesn’t matter whether it is a genuine problem or not because fans clearly don’t care about it. They know the internet. Most of them think they are capable of separating the wheat from the chaff on the web. They didn’t just fall off a turnip truck. They decide what’s worth reading.
