from Amber Dowling of The Hockey News,
Forget HD resolution or viewing parties on massive projector screens. It won’t be long until fans will feel as though they’re sitting front and center ice rather than lounging on their tired sofas, cold beers in hand. At least that’s the virtual future now being presented at conferences across North America, where participants are plunked right into the thick of the game via a headset and clever camera angles.
“4K resolution seems like the next move in camera coverage, although the Japanese I think are just going to go right to 8K – that’s what they’re planning on doing for the Olympics as the host broadcaster,” said John McGuinness, co-ordinating producer, Hockey on NBC and NBCSN. “Any time you can make it easier for the viewer to see, a sport like hockey could definitely benefit from it because of the old, ‘I can’t see the puck’ argument.”
The rapid transformation of the way viewers consume their hockey has been a long time coming. With Rogers taking over the NHL deal in Canada and working in tandem with NBC Sports and TVA, there have been many broadcast experiments with Q-balls, rail cams and even the ref cam. Online, a future where viewers pick which broadcast – home or away – to watch, complete with color from their favorite commentators and a view from their preferred camera angle is possible.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed the Toronto Blue Jays and Cherry says "They got stiffed."
Next up was talking about P.K. Subban, Carey Price and Mike Condon.
The talk turned to Josh Gorges and the Calgary Flames. Then Tyler Toffoli was the next topic, "What a guy."
Cherry then brought up T.J. Oshie and how he treats his stick.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed Martin Jones and the San Jose Sharks, the Winnipeg Jets and the Arizona Coyotes.
Cherry noted a play by Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators, pointed out some bank passes and the shot blocking by Kris Russell of the Calgary Flames.

from Mick Kern of SiriusXM,
Have you ever been standing at one of those fancy buffets, and finding yourself unable to decide between the sweet ‘n sour chicken balls, spare ribs, black pepper steak, chicken fingers, cheese pizza and roast beef? And that’s not even mentioning the fried rice, French fries and mashed potatoes.
So you hover over the food trays, no doubt drooling all over the sneeze guard, as you struggle to decide where to begin.
That pretty much describes most evenings for the modern hockey fan.
Between the Centre Ice TV package and all the coverage here on Sirius XM NHL Network Radio, you can park yourself in front of the TV/radio beginning at 7 pm Eastern, eventually crawling off to bed sometime after the final West Coast game finishes up around 1:15 am…1:30 if it goes all the way to the shootout. Depending on your time zone, you either have an early start to your evening, or a late start to your sleep. Who needs a social life; you can settle in and watch wall-to-wall hockey practically every night.
Your thumb will undergo a Gary Roberts’ workout constantly switching back and forth and back between games. If you’ve fortunate enough to have multiple screens set up in the hockey cave, then your neck will bear the strain, moving back and forth and back like a goaltender trying to pick up the puck through a myriad of sticks and skates.
Oh the things you’ll see. Oh the things you’ll miss.
Hometown Hockey kicks off their season in Kitchener tonight starting at 6:30pm ET on the NHL Network and Sportsnet.
The game between Montreal and Ottawa starts just after 7:00pm ET and is also on RDS.
I also hope all of Canada enjoys the Thanksgiving Holiday and can spend some valuable time with family and friends.
Don Cherry talks about the new overtime format, the Maple Leafs issues at the net and goes on a rant about what is happening to the Toronto Blue Jays.
Plus a few more topics including some of the rookies...
