Way to go Rolston! [07 Nov 2005|12:47am]

``I think it's great, even though it was against us,'' Rolston said. ``I hope guys start throwing their gloves up in the air and shooting them out of the sky, to sell the game more. I mean, when you give back 12 percent escrow, you want to help the game grow.''

Goodbye E$PN coverage of the NHL and good riddance [18 Aug 2005|03:36am]


NEW YORK (AP) — NHL games will air on Outdoor Life Network for at least the next two seasons.
The league finalized a two-year deal with Comcast Corp. — the owner
of OLN — late Wednesday night after ESPN declined to match the
agreement that will pay the NHL $65 million this season and $70 million
in 2006-07.

The agreement between Comcast and the NHL was approved by the
league's board of governors last week. ESPN, which resumed regular
broadcast of NHL games in 1992, had until Wednesday night to match the
contract but decided to pass.

"Over the years, thousands of great NHL moments were presented to
our fans through the lenses of ESPN cameras," NHL commissioner Gary
Bettman said. "ESPN was a supportive partner, and both the National
Hockey League and ESPN enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship. We
wish ESPN continued success."

The new deal can be extended up to six years. For the 2007-08
season, Comcast would pay the NHL $72.5 million but that number could
go higher based on contingencies.

OLN, best known for providing live coverage of the Tour de France,
will show between 58 and 78 regular-season games, as well as conference
quarterfinals and the entire conference finals — with the exception of
some weekend windows that could move games to NBC in both playoff

OLN will show Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup finals before NBC takes over for the remainder of the series.

The deal with Comcast goes beyond just television rights. Comcast
will bring the NHL Network to cable systems in the United States, and
provide on-demand game broadcasts and computer streaming of live games.

This is the second time in recent months that ESPN has declined a
deal with the NHL. In June, ESPN passed on a $60 million option under
the previous contract. The network tried to retain the rights for less
money in talks with the league.

ESPN contended that the value of NHL games had dropped substantially following the lockout that wiped out all of last season.

"We worked very hard to build and sustain our relationship with the
league and would have liked to continue," George Bodenheimer, the
president of ESPN, Inc. and ABC Sports said in a statement late
Wednesday night. "However, given the prolonged work stoppage and the
league's TV ratings history, no financial model even remotely supports
the contract terms offered. We wish the NHL all the best."

The NHL will begin a two-year deal with NBC for over-the-air
broadcasts beginning with the upcoming season. That is a profit-sharing
arrangement, a deal similar to what the network has with the Arena
Football League and the National Lacrosse League in which it pays no
rights fee to televise games.

I'm a little worried about the hockey video games that will be coming out soon. According to ebgames, NHL 2K6 will be out at the very begining of September. Now the thing that worries me is all the roster changes that are going on right now. I can't see any way that this game will have the correct rosters in place in 1 month's time. I've become a fan of the 2K franchsie over the EA franchise lately and this is a concern of mine. Does anyone else worry about them also?

What does everyone think of the rule changes? I'm not a fan of the shootout, but I like trying to make the game a bit more offensive. I also like the scheduling change allowing teams to play their division foes more often.

What do you all have to say?

rule changes article from NHL.com...

i have to say, looking at ahl, and tapes from even a decade ago let alone last season, flow? Worried that Open Game will turn the nhl into basketball with defense waiting at the other end after a play?

flow isn't a problem when you realize what they're really talking about: back and forth play with not much result.... i.e. a lot of scoring chances that go nowhere. I've become a soccer fan recently, and the parallel is obvious: lots of back and forth with no result because the defense outplays the offense. that's the freaking point of defense. don't penalize the defnese because the offense can't outplay them. The rules changes for the ahl to improve "flow" didn't work as i saw them... still tons of scoring chances wasted. even making it illegal to play defense will not get more results from scoring chances.

it's just plain dumb to change the rules rather than let the game naturally work out.
