Paul Kelly Would Like “Widespread” TV Coverage Of The NHL

from Stan Fischler at MSG Network, (Paul) Kelly wants to canvass his constituency to get an overall feel for the membership’s thinking. One thing he emphasized to us is his desire to see more widespread TV coverage in the U.S.

He didn’t mention ESPN by name, but rather by implication that a renewed marriage between the biggest sports network and Bettman, Inc. would be highly desirable. It’s tough to argue that point!

The Colorful Theo Fleury

Theo Fleury will be joining the Calgary Flames broadcast crew doing the color commentary on tonight’s Pay-Per-View match against the Colorado Avalanche.

Which reminds me of this from Eric Duhatschek’s post on the Globe & Mail hockey blog just last week:

Asked if he had any plans to come of retirement, Fleury retorted: “Just for the shootout. I think I can still do that. I’m pretty good at it, in the basement, playing with the kids.”

Otherwise, Fleury says he’s through with hockey (“I hate it. I really do,” he said).

Love it or hate it, I guess he just can’t stay away from it.

Today, around 3:00pm ET, I will be on The Inside Radio Hockey Show

I am looking forward to the interview and I have been promised I will be off-the-air by 3:30pm in order to watch the Michigan/ Michigan State football game.  Hockey takes a break today while the battle is on.

Are You a Hockey Fan?

From Skate2Stick.com,

I don’t have to ask myself if I am a true hockey fan, I know I am. I know when my team is playing, I can almost quote my team player’s stats and I live for the greatest sport on earth. There are many out there that would disagree and well that’s ok too. We all can’t be on board for the same thing after all that’s what makes the western hemisphere the greatest place in the world to live.

Name another sport with more contact, lighter equipment, faster pace and using a lethal hard rubber object as the center of the sport and do all that on ice while standing on a 1/8 inch piece of steel. Well… You can’t. There is none.

Modano Has No Plans To Waive NTC

from the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

Called up Mike Modano and asked him about the Eklund rumor that he might waive his no-trade clause for a chance to move somewhere else, and Modano said he has not thought about that and doesn’t plan on asking for a trade or waiving his no-trade clause.

“Yeah, I heard about that, too. It’s not true,’’ he said. “I plan on being there tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that. I’m just going to keep showing up and work myself through this.’‘

more and thanks to Spector for the pointer…

How many of these made-up rumors have come true?  If you are a true fan of the game, stick to people who actually know the game!

Googling the NHL in the USA

From NHLdigest.com,

I have created the following video to show yet another perspective on the popularity, or lack thereof, of the NHL in the United States.

In this video I use a tool created by Google, called Google Trends, that is used to graphically show the popularity of certain terms that are searched for on the Internet. Google Trends is very nice to use because it allows us to compare two terms against each other to determine which of the terms is most often searched for.

This video clearly shows that “Nothing” is more popular than the NHL as a search term used in the United States. This is absolutely embarrassing for me as a hockey fan.

The Accidental Sportswriter

From Eric McErlain at the Sporting News,

What a long strange trip it has been.

Confused? I’m sure you are, but then again, so am I.

Why? Because while this column is serving as my introduction to the hockey-loving audience at Sporting News, it’s also something of a milestone for me. I didn’t set out to become a sportswriter; it just sort of happened.

Just wanted to send a shout of congratulations to Eric for his new gig. And for more hockey news, readers can always check out Eric’s well-known blog, Off Wing Opinion.
