How Did NBC & CBC Handle The Winter Classic

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

But for television, the outdoor game is a tough sell unless it’s framed brilliantly within the context of its surroundings.

In that respect, the CBC and NBC did fine jobs of bringing the enormousness of the spectacle into our homes.

Both networks conveyed the larger-than-life aspect of the game by giving us high overhead shots from an aircraft above the stadium as well as scenes in and around the game.

But the CBC should have given us more crowd shots. The mood and reaction of the spectators, after all, is a large part of the show.

Update 8:34pm ET: Reviews of the game all being added to this post, and game video available here.

The “Sorta” Award

I received a “SORTA MSM BLOGS” award from Greg Wyshynski at the Fourth Period. 

I would like to “Sorta” thank Greg for the mention.

Make sure the read the full article, some good stuff in there!!!  Even a mention of The Entertainer, Dwayne Klessel. 

On that subject, the more people that ask me about him, the more I learn about Dwayne.  How he continues to lie and deceive is just a shame, but one day, it will catch up with him.

NHL Network Is Good For US Hockey Fans

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,

We speak here of the NHL Network, which now has been made widely available for NHL fans in the U.S., given most all of the important satellite or cable carriers in the country are running the service. Talk about a shepherd finally feeding his flock.

While you can say it’s long overdue, finally the standard NHL fan in the U.S. can be guaranteed of seeing highlights of virtually every NHL game.

Detroit MSM Drops The Puck, Again

from the Wayne Fontes Experience,

The closest thing I could find to an Red Wings/Lidstrom opinion piece in any of the local fishwraps was the the Freep’s reprinting of a 6 month old article from Helene St. James recapping Lidstrom’s career.

It’s a sad state of affairs in regard to the MSM’s NHL coverage in Hockeytown.

At least the Red Wings blogosphere stepped up.

Decisions Ahead For NBC

from Willam Houston of the Globe and Mail,

There’s plenty on the line for the NHL. NBC has not committed to the 2008-09 season and the success of the outdoor game will help the network decide about continuing to televise hockey beyond this season.

“As we would with any property, we’ll make an evaluation as the season goes along,” NBC spokesman Brian Walker said. “We’re hopeful the outdoor game and the new flex scheduling have a positive impact on ratings.”

It would make sense for NBC to stay with the NHL in 2008-09 if only to get U.S. viewers more connected with hockey in advance of the network’s coverage of the 2010 Olympic tournament in Vancouver.

What concerns NBC, however, is giving over as many as five prime-time spots in May and June to the Stanley Cup final when the ratings are minuscule.

Also, about a month or so ago, a hockey blogger wrote, “A mutual option must be agreed upon by the January 1, 2008” regarding NBC and the NHL.  I said it then and will say it now, not true.
