Bettman’s First Year on XM Radio

From Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo!‘s Puck Daddy,

If you’ve never heard The NHL Hour with Gary Bettman, you can download the podcasts on NHL.com. What you’ll find is that Bettman is his usual well-informed self, digging his heels in on a myriad of issues and never giving an inch during a discussion. The man has a politician’s gift for staying on message, even if he’s never had a politician’s gift for charisma.

But you’ll also find the program is a Twilight Zone where harsh criticism of Bettman’s performance over the last 15 years doesn’t seem to exist. The callers are, to a fault, polite and complementary. If they guys behind Gary Bettman Sucks or Fire Bettman are calling in, they might be on lithium.

A Non-Blogger Responds

I wanted to draw your attention today to the KK Member Blog area, where HockeyinHD gives a side of the story we do not normally read about on this topic.

Also, for the folks who have been writing their own blog there, may I suggest updating your KK member profile.  I know a few folks involved in the business who want to know a little bit more about you so updating your profile may be to your advantage.

Could We See The NHL On ESPN Again…

...according to Al Strachan on the HNIC Hot Stove tonight, yes we will.  Al said everyone within the NHL wants it except maybe Bettman, who hammered out the deal with Versus.

Milbury chimed in about NBC and said the NHL decides on their option year next season and they could be gone too.

But do remember, next season is an Olympic year, so who knows what will go on with NBC.

NHL and Technology

Earlier today, Forechecker pointed to an interview that Sharkspage posted with Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis.  I wanted to reference the interview here on the main KK Hockey feed as well, just in case anyone missed the earlier post. It’s really a fascinating read for anyone interested in the issues of technology and media as it pertains to the NHL.

Leonsis provides a great deal of detail about how the league does—and will—utilize technology to support its business model. In his words:

“We lifted up [our business enterprise], put the internet underneath, and then slammed it back down so it is the powerplant the pretty much drives everything that we do.”

Read the rest here.

Afternoon Line

“I don’t share your love for the Isles, Scotty. Not sure what you’re smoking. I think they are apt to lose five games in a row at a moment’s notice. I will run across press row naked at the Cup finals if the Islanders make the playoffs.”

ESPN‘s Pierre LeBrun writing to colleague Scott Burnside

Complaints About Blue Jackets Coverage

From Ben Marrison, Editor of the Columbus Dispatch:

The caller said she is “sick and tired” of our negative coverage of the team, and said we’re trying to drive them out of town. She was particularly irked by the large photo we ran of goalie Pascal Leclaire in Wednesday’s paper, who gave up 7 goals in a loss Tuesday. She said we had the worst coverage of an NHL team of any newspaper.

continued…

Worth a read, given that the matter of “negative” coverage is something that fans around the league often have strong feelings about.  And the fact that the ownership company behind The Dispatch also happens to own a 10% stake in the Columbus Blue Jackets and their arena, is another interesting twist.

Sounds Familiar

from Japers’ Rink,

To recap - these were not her questions and there’s no disclosure anywhere that the Q&A was a conference call via the NHL. This is no different than if a political reporter published portions of a Presidential press conference under her byline with the headline “A quick chat with George W. Bush.”

And the PHWA is worried about bloggers lowering journalistic standards?
