Bettman In The Media

from Reuters,

New Spots For NHL Network

from BrandWeek,

The fledgling NHL Network, which last month launched in the U.S., will break a campaign targeting core fans who live and breathe hockey as well as fringe fans not yet aware that the 24/7 network is up and running.

The spots, the first for NHL Network from Cenergy Communications, East Aurora, N.Y., will juxtapose nonstop action from the 1950s and 1960s with that from the 2007-08 campaign. One spot begins with black-and-white footage of a game between the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens purposely made to look as if it was being viewed on a TV screen with really bad reception.

HNIC Via Phoenix

from Ice Chips at the Arizona Republic,

Now more than 75 years after its inception on radio, Hockey Night in Canada continues to be a special event.

The Coyotes and Toronto Maple Leafs played the opening game of the Saturday doubleheader. Across Canada, it is always a must-see event.

“It’s pretty exciting,” said Coyotes rookie Craig Weller. “Growing up (in Alberta) as a kid, we didn’t have cable. We only had three channels, but it was always on one of the three.

“It’s definitely a thrill to play and have all of Canada watching. I guess every kid dreams that growing up.”

Reviewing The NHL Network

from Neil Best at Newsday,

After six years on Canadian TV, the NHL Network launched in the United States, built around a nightly wrap-up show called “NHL On the Fly” with game highlights so extensive that even a Blue Jackets-Coyotes contest is treated as if, well, people actually care.

Which is the point, of course. The channel is for those who really, really care, and want to see stuff from highlights to features to live games to oldies such as yesterday’s Islanders-Oilers tilt from 1981.

All About The Oilers Bloggers

from the Edmonton Journal,

The Oilogosphere—the numerous Edmonton Oilers sites, blogs and boards on the Internet—is the place where Oilers fans increasingly meet to discuss the merits of various players, not to mention delving into that most fundamental of all hockey questions: Who is hotter, Ethan (Chopper) Moreau or Craig (The Silver Fox) MacTavish?

Each day, thousands of fans get their news and make their opinions known on the Oilogosphere, just as surely as they go to the newspaper to read stories and phone in to talk radio shows.

Inside The Locker Room

from Working the Corners at the Mercury News,

A couple of you have asked about the amount of access I get to players and coaches. Here’s a snapshot of the way things are set up.

As soon as the first player leaves the ice at practice, the room is considered open. Reporters (and, yes, I’m the only beat writer covering the team this season, but AP does show up now and then as do columnists and other bloggers) can go into the room where players take off their skates and uniforms. I’m free to approach anyone I want at that point.

Most of the interviews are very informal, one-on-one, though in some cases – say the buildup to Jeremy Roenick’s 500th goal — there might be two or three people talking with him at once,

Still Talking About Rinkside View

from Erin Nicks at the Ottawa Sun,

That’s what made this FSN broadcast all the more enjoyable, because the lack of irrelevant chatter from a two- or three-piece media team allowed the game to stand on its own merit.

The crowd was engaged, the players were chirping and all necessary information was conveyed with a simple graphic.

There was the occasional vignette during timeouts, where a commentator would provide some inside information on the teams (think along the lines of the pay-per-view segments), but that’s the only time the media made their presence known.
