Trying To Find That ‘Nut”

from M.L. of The Islanders Opimer,

I spent exactly one season in the press box for the Nashville Predators. I sat in the box, talked to the players and coaches after the game and even made a couple of appearances on the local news. Then I realized that most of the guys sitting next to me in the press box are more like Eklund and B.D. Gallof than authentic journalists. Not that “authentic” writers are any better, they just collect a modest salary for their writing. At the end of the day, they are all just squirrels trying to get a nut. Nothing more than common fans, who think they have the capacity to write about sports. They are message forum posters. They are internet savants. They are losers.

McGuire vs. Milbury

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

Given the coverage the issue has received, it seemed fitting that NBC’s first Sunday of the NHL regular season would feature a fight.

The battle in this case, however, wasn’t on the ice.

It was in the studio where commentators Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury traded verbal blows over the pros and cons of fisticuffs, with Milbury ending it by giving McGuire a sharp slap to the chest.

“Keep your head up,” he said.

“I always keep my head up,” replied McGuire.

It was heated, but for the Canadian audience, there wasn’t much new presented in the debate,...

continued and not just for the Canadian audience Mr. Houston, hockey fans world wide have been following the fighting debate…

The E.J. Story With NHL Live

via Ken Schott of the Daily Gazette,

Hradek, who was co-host of the two-hour talkshow that is on NHL Network and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio with Don La Greca, hasn’t been on the show for a couple of months. At the top of the show, Hradek explained that his full-time employer, ESPN, has problems with him being on the show. Hradek is a senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and a contributor to ESPNEWS.

Hradek said a compromise was reached where he can be a “guest” on “NHL Live.” He is hoping to work out a deal with ESPN where he can be on “NHL Live” more.

Breaking Down The Call

The Goalie Guru takes issue with the announcer (who happens to be ex-NHL goaltender Chico Resch) and tries to prove his point.

But I would take the word of a guy who played the game on the NHL level before that of a ‘guru’.

Talking Pens-Rangers With Mike Milbury

I had the opportunity to speak with Mike Milbury this morning to discuss the NHL on NBC game this Sunday at 12:30pm ET.

We talked about the upcoming game and a few other hockey topics.  Also note, I got my Pierre’s messed up, referring to McGuire as LeBrun in the interview.  Hey, it is Friday morning and -16 right now.  That is my excuse!


If you wish, you can download the interview in mp3 format here.

Time For The HHOF To Open Their Doors For Cherry

from Mike Milbury of Blogs and Columns at CBC,

It is time to elect Don Cherry into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

There is not a man on the planet who has kept more fans or made more fans for the sport of hockey than Grapes. For nearly 30 years he has kept the attention of Canadian hockey fans (and now fans worldwide) on the sport that he and they love far more than any other.

And I’m not talking about the media wing … I am talking about full fledged induction in the builders’ category.

In my own informal poll of interested fans, administrators and media types, there is overwhelming support for Don’s election. And why not?

Who Is That Masked Avenger?

from James Mirtle of From The Rink,

I appreciate all of the solid contributions some readers have made in the right hand sidebars the past few months, but I unfortunately have had a lot of garbage posted there as well.

Lately, someone calling themselves the Masked Avenger has been repurposing their offensive blog content onto this site, material that slags other bloggers, media personalities and NHL officials. It’s all been deleted, but you can read it over on his site if you wish. (I don’t mind if people want to share content from their blog in that space, but it needs to reach a certainly level of dignity to stay there.)

The thing with SBN’s software is that it’s often easy to tell where this nonsense is coming from — and it’s even easier to get rid of. The Masked Avenger’s profile on this site gives away his identity:
