Did you know I am now blogging twice a week at Hockey.com and I look forward to a great working relationship with all the folks there.
Many of you probably have visited Hockey.com and I ask you to take a look again. They went through a major upgrade yesterday and the site has great content and potential for the hockey fan.
Some of the “talk” about Hockey.com is…
Bethesda, MD (March 5, 2008) – Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, the leader in local sports television, will unveil its latest innovation, the “OvechKam,” when the Capitals host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, March 12.
This unique broadcast, which will be available on CSN+ and replayed on Comcast On Demand, will feature a dedicated view that follows Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin throughout the entire game, providing viewers with an unprecedented look at the most prolific player in the NHL
from Rand Simon at the Hockey News,
Dumbest thing heard on the radio recently (non-Rush Limbaugh division): “Look at Steve Yzerman, he hadn’t done a thing by the time he was 28”—Toronto-based sports radio host….
The reality is that by his 28th birthday, Yzerman already had a career worthy of Hall of Fame induction with 1,040 career points to his credit in 757 games. Compare that to Cam Neely who is in the Hall of Fame with 694 career points in 726 career games. (Interestingly, Yzerman also played in exactly 757 games after turning 28 and had 715 points in those games.)
Anyway, it was just another example of why I find it so frustrating to listen to sports talk radio.

Hockey fans are all whiners who bitch and moan, never go to actual games, and sit around in a little circle of fellow bitchers and moaners who complain all day long.
How do I know this? Jamie Samuelssen told me, in a nice little 9:23 rant that’s available for your listening pleasure on WDFN.
Samuelssen claims that Red Wings fans and all hockey fans—with enough “you people” references to usually merit a lawsuit—are negative Nancies, each and every one, and he feels that the trade deadline brings out the worst in what hockey fans are.
