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.

Worried About The Direction Of Hockey

from P.J. Stock of Blogs and Columns at CBC,

...The game has changed. The players have changed and so has the perception from the fans watching the game. I think it’s a direct reflection of our changing society. We live in a world of always worrying to be so PC (politically correct, folks). The game has changed because our society’s influence on it has almost forced some of its changes. No more so than in interpretation of the game’s physicality.

What used to be a battle along the boards, a fight for the puck, a mano-a-mano confrontation is now called like a basketball game. Two minutes for illegal use of the hands or two minutes for being too strong or too tough. I believe the game needed changes to get out of the trap era, but why interfere with what so many people have fallen in love with? The toughness of players playing the toughest game out there….

Fighting is a no-no now, hitting someone who is watching their pass is a crime and body checking someone in the head … purgatory.

I loved the game the way it used to be. I’m worried about the direction the game is going in.
