NBC/NHL In Wait Mode

from Tripp Mickle and John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal,

Though the NHL and NBC are expected to step up negotiations on a new TV deal over the next few weeks as the NHL playoffs get under way, nobody is suggesting that an agreement is close.

The two sides have to work through several advertising and scheduling issues, sources said, which includes picking the site for the next Winter Classic. The top two markets under consideration for the annual outdoor game are Boston and New York.

NBC and the NHL also want to wait and see what final advertising sales results are for the 2008-09 season and analyze prospects for advertising sales in 2009-10.

Versus- The Established Home For The NHL

from Mike Reynolds of Multichannel News,

Versus will carry ratings momentum into the boards when the National Hockey League faces off for the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs Wednesday.

The Comcast-owned sports network continued its Nielsen advance with the puck sport with significant double-digit growth during the 2008-09 regular season. At the same time, Versus will look to measure up to the major gains it registered with last year’s postseason run.

“It’s our fourth season. Versus is the established home for the National Hockey League,” said Versus executive vice president of programming, production and business operations Marc Fein, who notes the network is also benefiting from an expanded sub base that has grown 4% over the past year in surpassing the 75 million mark.

Twittering Hockey

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

In my never-ending goal to make life easier on you, the reader, I’m compiling a list of useful Twitter accounts related to hockey. If you’re not on Twitter, I suggest you sign up to follow some of these people because it’s a really useful way to get news and information quickly. It’s my guess that we’ll see every journalist utilizing Twitter at some point, but here’s who I’ve found so far.

In Honor Of Opening Day In Detroit

It is not often I go off topic, but today is a special day in Detroit.  The Detroit Tigers open another season in Detroit and although their pitching may be their downfall, hope does remain.

Frank Albin of the San Jose Sharks sent this my way.  You may remember the ‘Hockey in 2050’ video I posted a few weeks ago, well this is the ‘Future of Baseball’.

How about some classic audio regarding the Tigers?  A long time staple on WJR, the introduction of Detroit Tiger Baseball and the classic ‘Go Get ‘Em Tiger’.

Kings Governor Wants “To Get Back On ESPN”

via Ben Grossman of Broadcasting & Cable,

Briefly stopped by the opening of ESPN’s snazzy new Los Angeles digs last week, and stuck around just long enough to hear a prominent National Hockey League team executive indirectly trash league television partner Versus, which picked up a hockey package as its main asset when ESPN balked a few years back.

On stage at the opening of the new complex, Anschutz Entertainment Group (owners of the Los Angeles Kings) CEO Tim Leiweke turned to ESPN chief George Bodenheimer and said, “We made a huge mistake with hockey - we need to get back on ESPN with the NHL.” While many people agree, I wonder how that comment went over back at Comcast, which has shelled out quite a few scheckels to the NHL?

The Future of Hockey Media

Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy interviews Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings and David Pollak at Working the Corners:

In a general sense, where do you think print media hockey coverage is headed in the U.S. in the next few years? Can or will blogs fill in the holes in coverage for some fan bases?

HAMMOND: As much as I’d like to think otherwise, I don’t see how there’s going to be an increase of print coverage for hockey. Newspapers staffs are only going to continue to shrink, and as we’ve already seen, hockey coverage is one of the first things to go. Unless newspapers enjoy a huge resurgence, I don’t know what will turn that around.

Blogs most certainly have an opportunity to fill in the holes, even blogs that aren’t affiliated with newspapers or major media outlets. Bloggers who can develop credibility with their audiences have a wonderful opportunity to provide coverage to hockey fans who are hungry for it.
