Hockey Blog Reading

From Joe Pelletier’s Hockey Legends,

There’s no shortage of great hockey blogs out there, and I’ve ranked my favorite blogs in my Hockey Blog Power Rankings. Ranked simply by personal preference, I keep this list on the right hand column, towards the bottom. Keep an eye on it as I will make additions as the season goes on.

Topping the list, as always, are my three favorite blogs: Lowetide, Kukla’s Korner, and James Mirtle. These are must reads every single day for me.

Harry Neale Settling In With Buffalo

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,

“It’s been used to getting a whole new crew,” Neale said. “Jeanneret has been easy to work with. But it’s like getting traded to a team. You have to get used to your new teammates.”

Neale was asked that after the Sabres 0-2 start, some of the Buffalo players and coaches kidded him that he brought some of the Leafs struggling ways with him.

“Actually, I missed one of the first-two games because of my duties with Hockey Night in Canada,” he said. “I was only 0-1 before I had a meeting with the team and straightened them out.

Audio Slideshow: Ducks with the Cup

From the LA Times,

One of the unique spoils of winning the NHL’s Stanley Cup is that each player on the championship team gets to take the trophy anywhere he wants. [...]

This summer, Los Angeles Times photographer Robert Gauthier traveled across the U.S. and to Sweden, Finland and Canada with the Ducks players to document the cup’s journey. As a lifelong hockey player, the shot of fan-favorite Teemu Selanne hoisting the cup before a Helsinki crowd of 10,000 made me misty-eyed.

You can view Gauthier’s audio slideshow here.*

*that link should pop up. If not, the direct page link is here.  It also provides numerous, additional audio slideshows.

The Kouleas show, which will debut Monday at 10 p.m. EDT, will feature analysts Al Strachan, the hockey writer, and Steve Ludzik, the former NHL player.

Kouleas, Strachan and Ludzik work for The Score Television Network, which owns and operates Hardcore Sports Radio.

Controlling Content

from the Toronto Star,

Before your eyes begin to glaze over because this column deals with media access, be warned that it’s something all sports fans should be concerned about.

The latest skirmish in the ongoing war between the media and sports rights holders involves the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have banned hand-held video cameras from their dressing room both here and on the road.

HNIC Goes For The Big Time Look

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

Najak says Hockey Night, which stayed with the same programming for more than 10 years, needed a change.

“And the thing is, change doesn’t come without some pain,” he said. “If we had come back with [the previous Hot Stove panel of sportswriters], we wouldn’t have had the energy. I’m not averse to taking risk, and the only way to get some gain is to be unafraid.”...

The objective, Najak said, is to separate the show from the standard hockey telecast — to be different yet entertaining.

“This show has to be representative of the people who watch it,” he said. “And a lot of Canadians don’t like being yelled at. I don’t want it to be like the regular sports show. I want to be big time on Saturday nights. That’s what we’re going for and that’s what we’re going to get to.”

read on... I asked Eric Duhatschek earlier today about his views of HNIC, especially the Hot Stove segment.  You can find the audio interview here...
