How Is NHL.TV Doing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tech Dirt,

In addition to the surprise blackouts suddenly rearing their ugly heads, it appears that NHL.tv is having trouble working across certain devices for whatever reason. Chromebooks in particular appear to be affected, but other devices render the stream into a pixelated hell-scape. This is particularly problematic for a sport that relies so heavily on high-res viewing in order to follow the puck and the action in an arena where color differentiation is much more limited than with other sports.

But adding insult to injury is the all-caps threat clause the NHL slid into the update.

IF YOU CIRCUMVENT OR ATTEMPT TO CIRCUMVENT ANY BLACKOUT RESTRICTION OR OTHER USE RESTRICTION: YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION AND A CHARGE OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00) FOR EARLY TERMINATION WILL BE APPLIED TO YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD; YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION; AND THE NHL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REPORT SUCH MISCONDUCT TO APPROPRIATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.

Lovely....

Winnipeg To Make Floor

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

Almost a week ago I asked how the Winnipeg Jets will make the salary floor next year.  The Jets have the smallest payroll in the NHL.  General fanager has them at $59.8 million this year.  Two of their more expensive players Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd were scheduled to be unrestricted free agents this summer and it seemed a reasonable guess that they would leave as free agents.  It turns out that isn't what will happen.  Dustin Byfuglien just resigned with the Winnipeg Jets.  He is signed for the next four years with a $7.6 million salary cap hit.

I didn't see how Winnipeg could make good hockey decisions and make the salary floor.  It turns out that a big part of doing this was signing Byfuglien for more than he will be worth.  Does anyone imagine that at age 34 he will be worth a $7.6 million salary cap hit?  I think it is quite a stretch.  It is almost certain that this is a bad contract that Winnipeg will regret.  Byfuglien will be ery hard to move given his salary cap hit.

The overnight report: Red Wings-Senators set-up: Wings hope to sustain streak vs. Phaneuf’s Sens

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings take on the Ottawa Senators this evening (7:00 PM EST start on FSD/Sportsnet/TVA Sports/97.1 FM), with the Wings hoping to build upon a 2-game winning streak while facing a puzzling opponent:

Before the Dion Phaneuf trade, the 25-23-and-6 Senators were attempting to nudge itself back into contention for a Wild Card spot, and the Senators served notice that they were warming up over the weekend, defeating the Maple Leafs 6-1 on Saturday and the Lightning 5-1 on Monday.

Those victories serve as more than enough notice to the 3rd-in-the-Atlantic Wings that they're going to face stiff opposition this evening.

This is also the 4th game of 5 regular season meetings between the Wings and Sens this season: the Wings dropped a 3-1 decision to Ottawa on Friday, October 30th and defeated them 5-3 on Saturday the 31st, and Detroit defeated Ottawa 4-3 in ovetime on November 15th. These teams are familiar with each other, and they tend not to like each other very much.

All of that being said, the media spotlight will be squarely on Dion Phaneuf on Wednesday, and the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch breaks down the deal:

Panthers still very upset with Abdelkader’s hit on Barkov

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

You may take this for what you will, from the Miami Herald's George Richards...

[Aleksander] Barkov was sent back to South Florida after being knocked out of Monday's game by Detroit's Justin Abdelkader. As part of the NHL's concussion protocol, Barkov was automatically out of Tuesday's game and is expected to miss Friday against St. Louis as well.

One member of the Panthers' front office said Barkov was sent back only because he wasn't playing Tuesday and isn't scheduled for any more neurological tests. The Panthers hope to have Barkov back Saturday against Nashville.

As for Abdelkader, not only did he not get a penalty for the hit on Barkov but he won't face any supplemental discipline from the league either. With no hearing scheduled, Abdelkader is expected to be in the Wings' lineup Wednesday against Ottawa.

"That's our best player and my good friend so maybe I'm looking at the situation differently,'' said Jussi Jokinen, who has had a beef with Abdelkader since last week. "But in talking to others around the league, it was a dangerous hit. He needs to be suspended. ... After seeing the replays, the league needs to do a better job."

Said Shawn Thornton: "My understanding of the rule is, if a player is vulnerable, it's the player's obligation to not throw that hit. He did."

And the Sun-Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov:

Report- A Few Regulars In Calgary Will Not Be Playing Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

While the Toronto Maple Leafs will be playing their first game since trading captain Dion Phaneuf on Tuesday night, the Calgary Flames are expected to be missing stars of their own.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, Flames forwards Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau and Lance Bouma are expected to be out against the Leafs for disciplinary reasons.

According to the Calgary Herald, Flames head coach Bob Hartley called practice after just 25 minutes on Monday, the morning after the players were given Super Bowl Sunday off.

The Herald also reports “a couple of regulars” in the Flames lineup showed up shortly before the start of practice, but did not name the players, and Hartley declined to comment when asked, stating he wasn't "going to clean his laundry in public."
