Any suggestions, ideas?
This is for the NHL Network US, Shoalts tweeted earlier stating NHL Network in Canada will be shut down.
So good for the league that additional and advanced statistics will be available soon on NHL.com.
But if the NHL truly wants to do the public a service, it will introduce a salary cap component featuring information that essentially has been unavailable since the invaluable web site, capgeek.com, went off the grid at start of the calendar year.
Upon further review, if the NHL truly wants to do the public a service, it would eliminate “cheerleader” from the job description of anyone and everyone working for the NHL Network.
