from the ESPN Press Room,
I can't remember the last time I have watched ESPN except for a college football game.  I will tune in to check it out but if someone starts screaming at me, click!

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

“My hope is that hockey is the winner,” said the very busy Messier in a lengthy interview. “I think Wayne has such amazing perspective and individual perspective about the game and I think I share that with him. My hope is we can elevate the game, get more people interested, get more boys and girls wanting to play, be educational and entertaining, and for the most part, elevate the game.

“I’m a big fan of Wayne’s as you know from the time we were 18 years olds playing together. ”

And now a new beginning for both on a stage neither has really known before.

Well, it’s not part of ESPN+ without a provider, so, I guess, no…

Sounds like you can get it without a provider. the ESPN App is what requires the provider. Hopefully I understand this correctly.

Frankly I find it more than a bit disturbing/confusing how fractured Disney’s handling of hockey will be. You’ve got ESPN, ESPN 2, ABC, Hulu, ESPN+, ESPN App

Throw in TNT, TNT App, NHL Network, Center Ice, Bally and other regional networks plus blackout rules and I’ll need an app just to keep track of where to tune in each game.
