Best Line Of The Day…

...comes from Evan Grossman at NHL.com,

Four town employees were recently fired from their jobs for gossiping and spreading false rumors around their New Hampshire office. It’s unknown if the four plan to take up careers in the rumor-mongering hockey media now that they need new jobs.

The Bedrock Of The NHL

from Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette,

Here’s something Bettman clearly doesn’t understand: Canada is the bedrock of the NHL. Even with the European influx, we provide the bodies and the heart and the people who will pay through the nose and battle their way through a blizzard to watch the game.
Perhaps for a change, Bettman should try to make the U.S. networks want the NHL, rather than the other way around. Perhaps he should act as though he actually believes hockey is worth paying for.
And maybe he should pretend that he can find Canada on a map. We’re right up here, Gary - due north.

Bloggers & Credentials

from Off Wing Opinion,

Ted Leonsis just passed me a link to Sports Media Journal, an online outfit that’s running a poll asking whether or not bloggers should be allowed into press boxes. The same poll was also used to kick off a discussion thread at SportsJournalists.com, where it seems like most folks would rather see us banned.

I would be interested in the opinion of hockey fans, including hockey bloggers.

Detroit Sports Radio

An interesting conversation going on now on WXYT in Detroit regarding a column Helene Elliott did for the LA Times yesterday and re-printed in the Detroit News today.
I caught bits and pieces of the talk, and then turned it off when one of the so-called jocks said this about Helene, “What does an Anaheim beat writer know about the Wings?”
Click, turned the station, maybe if they would have realized Helene Elliot is part of the Hockey Hall of Fame, I would have continued to listen.

Good Or Bad Game

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

At the midway point of the 2007 Stanley Cup tournament, hockey experts are beginning to wonder whether the game is in trouble again.
Goal scoring is down. Columnists are griping about the absence of offence. At Hockey Night in Canada, Ron MacLean and Don Cherry have been complaining about the officiating and the decline of physical play.
Has the game really regressed, despite the continued zero tolerance toward restraining fouls? Or is it the crackdown on obstruction that’s responsible for the malaise?
We asked some prominent hockey broadcasters for their thoughts.

Hockey Links Updated

I’ve updated the World Wide Web of Hockey page today. Lots of new sites added, and the page now features almost 350 unique hockey destinations on the internet.  Thanks to everyone for helping make this page such a great resource.

Note: I’ve rejected very few submissions so far, only sites that don’t clearly have significant hockey content. If you have submitted a site that suits this requirement yet wasn’t posted, odds are that I just lost track. My apologies, and please send it again.
