(Toronto) - Both Sunday night’s NHL All-Star Game and Saturday’s NHL Super Skills Competition were record-setting ratings smashes for CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA, according to BBM overnight data.
The 2011 All Star Game on CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA drew an average audience of 2.389 million viewers, a huge 56 per cent increase over viewership of the last NHL All-Star Game played in 2009 in Montreal, when 1.527 million tuned in (there was no game last year due to the 2010 Winter Olympics).
A bunch of quick hit topics discussed, well worth a watch if you missed it tonight.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
With Nabokov joining Marek Svatos and Kyle Wellwood as players claimed away from teams who did the work to sign them, some clubs are wondering whether Section 13.23 of the CBA needs revisiting. Blues GM Doug Armstrong told ESPN.com on Saturday he’s going to table a discussion at the GMs meeting in March to ask that very question. The purpose of the rule is to prevent teams from adding “ringers” late in the season and gaining an unfair advantage.
