Default NHL back on ESPN

Butttttttt.....


link


I know what you're saying. "Gary Bettman's finally done something right!"

"No more Hockey Central followed by WEC Cage Fighting?"

"No more of Brian Engblom's mullet?"

"No more Bill Patrick??"

Sorry, they'll all be there back on Versus next week. So what's the deal? Well, if you're familiar with ESPN 360, you know that via your computer you can watch many ESPN-broadcast sporting events, including UEFA Champions League soccer matches, all while you putz off at work. If you live in Europe, not only will be able to watch this type of programming, but you can also catch your favorite National Hockey League team playing, for a price via the NHL Center Ice feed through ESPN 360 Europe.

"ESPN360 delivers the most comprehensive video coverage of North American sport in Europe. With free access to highlights, news and analysis from a diverse range of sports including Baseball, College Football, Basketball, NHL and MLS there's plenty of action to choose from. There's also a premium section featuring live streaming of NHL and NCAA matches, as well as all your favourite ESPN shows, from Pardon The Interruption to Around the Horn. Plus you get a fully interactive experience with real time news ticker, extended press conferences and more. ESPN360 will change the way you watch sports online."

Of course, if you're a Brit and were in attendance for the Ducks-Kings games in London and now fancy yourself some hockey, you're SOL.

"The service will be available across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, barring rights restrictions in certain territories. Countries currently blocked from the service are the UK, Ireland, Russia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan."

So basically ESPN will broadcast NHL feeds for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but Joe USA and Darren Canada better have TSN, RDS, Versus, CBC, NHL Network, or NHL Center Ice to watch hockey.

Dean Martin said it best, "ain't that a kick in the head?"

I eagerly await the day that Mr. Ahmadinejad begins writing the NHL Closer for Deadspin and takes one morning out of his busy week of stirring **** up by filing the NHL FanHouse Ice Sheet for AOL Sports.

If there's anyone who reads this living in Europe that can access this service, I'd love to know how the quality is and what the price is.

Anyone see Andre Roy lose his mind last night? Pure comedy. I guess he could'nt take getting the 1 punch knockout by Cote. First clip is Cote and Roy fight.... second clip is Roy losing his mind. Enjoy.

Tampa Bay Lightning enforcer Andre Roy has been suspended by the team for at least two games.

According to a report in the Tampa Bay Tribune, the club sent Roy home this morning in reaction to an incident in Thursday's 3-2 loss at Philadelphia.

During the game, Roy had to be restrained by a linesman then physically pulled to the bench by head coach John Tortorella after being enraged by the Flyers in-house staff for replaying Roy's second fight with Riley Cote on the jumbo screen. The Tribune reported that with each replay, the Flyers bench laughed at Cote's quick punch that sent Roy to the ice.

''After last night's game, I felt it would be best for the team and for Andre if he went back to Tampa and we separated him from the team for the next few days,'' general manager Jay Feaster said in a statement. ''I will meet with Andre on Monday and we will determine any subsequent course of action at that time.''

Roy will be out of the lineup tonight against New Jersey and Sunday in Columbus.

James Duthie, The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Saturday, March 08, 2008

No. 5: Owen Nolan

C'mon, admit it. You thought he retired three years ago. After missing two full seasons, then spending another in Phoenix (formerly hockey's version of the Witness Protection Program), Nolan has re-emerged as a force in Calgary. He scores (15 goals), he hits, he fights and he's a major reason no one wants to face the Flames in the playoffs.

No. 4: Fletcher and his frozen five: The Toronto Maple Leafs are to hockey writers and broadcasters what George Bush is to late-night talk show hosts: pure comedy gold. The Leafs are more dysfunctional than the Spears sisters (plus you can laugh at them without feeling pangs of guilt for mocking teen pregnancy and chemical dependency!)

Let's recap: they brought out of retirement the GM who traded for Mats Sundin so he could trade away Mats Sundin. Of course, Cliff Fletcher couldn't trade Mats, or anyone else of value. I mean, why would any Leafs veteran want to go to a Cup contender if it meant missing out on another magical late run at ninth?

No. 3: Mike Ribeiro

When Dallas acquired Ribeiro from Montreal for Janne Niinimaa early last season, most described the deal as "one team's garbage for another's." It was hard to disagree. Well, the "garbage" Dallas got has 27 goals, is 10th in the NHL in points and has been rewarded with a $25-million contract. Niinimaa, by the way, has nine goals. In Switzerland.

No. 2: Habs/Bruins

I paired these two up because a top 11 list isn't quite as catchy. Besides, Montreal and Boston share the distinction of being my single two worst preseason predictions. I had the Canadiens finishing 12th, and the Bruins dead last. Oopsie. The Canadiens might just win the conference, and the Bruins seemed headed for a top-five seed until they gave up 19 goals in three games -- all losses -- this week. So I may still be right about them. Maybe it just took them 68 games to remember they are supposed to be bad.

No. 1: The Ottawa Senators -- Last 50 games

Congrats, boys. You are the most bizarre, befuddling story of the season. Since Game 19, Ottawa has the fifth-worst record in the NHL. Tampa, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Atlanta, Ottawa. These are your peers, fellas.

In Toronto, the belief is the Leafs' strong finish is ruining their chances of winning the Steven Stamkos Sweepstakes. Lately, it seems the Senators' strong start is the only thing that ruined their shot at Stamkos.

James Duthie is the host of the NHL on TSN. He also blogs for thecitizen.com.

There was one in the Flyers/Isles game last night (Saturday) too. Prospal took a wicked hit and ended up hitting the partition very hard. Thankfully, he got right back up.

It's hard for me to imagine that we are in the bottom half. Perhaps it's the players that have missed the time. At one point, we had arguably our top 4 forwards out (Gagne, Richie, Lupul, and Briere). The 2nd list makes more sense. Although, we would probably be the highest when you take into account that Gagne only played only 20 games (give or take a few). His goal total would be alot higher had he been injured later.
Wow, only 16th overall. That just doesn't seem right.

These are guestimates the author states that but will say they have to be pretty close based on the lack of the league keeping any real accurate numbers for guys like us that care mirtle simply did his best.

I like his work. I just took the time to do the dirty work as far as the Flyers go. Based on all 4 "normal" lines and the top 6 D-Men, The number I came up with for MGL is 219. He may not have counted guys like Riley Cote and other "bottom" tier players but anyone who knows the Flyers, knows Cote is a big part of the way the Flyers try to get things done.
I just took the total number of team games played (69) and added the total up from each player that was under the 69 games. Again, I didn't take call up's into account. Just the 19 regulars.

Avs were without Sakic, Smyth and Stastny...with Leopold in and out of the line-up. Now Smyth, Svatos(out for the season and lead goal scorer), Foote, Salei and Forsberg is DTD...we feel your pain, as crazy as it sounds..if it weren't for Jose we wouldn't be where we are..if he keeps playing the way he is, we get our PP going and we can get healthy...watch out!!

Alex the Great helps the Avs out tonight. Cripes what a phenomenal player he is. The Caps were flying tonight, and Kipper was brilliant.

The NHL has so many great young players right now it's silly.

I agree Pendejo. I actually enjoyed the cup with the lightning v. flames. I loved watching Vinny blow up and Iginla dominate. IMO that was one of the best cup series i ever watched.

Default douche bag gets eight games

NEW YORK/TORONTO (March 15, 2008) -- Anaheim Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger has been suspended for eight games, without pay, for acting carelessly and recklessly in an incident against the Vancouver Canucks in NHL Game #1062 on March 12.

The incident occurred after Pronger became entangled with Canucks forward Ryan Kesler, who had fallen to the ice.

"In attempting to free himself, Pronger carelessly and recklessly brought his foot down," said Colin Campbell, NHL Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations.

There was no injury to Kesler, and no penalty was assessed.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Pronger is considered a repeat offender. He will forfeit $609,756.08 in salary. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Pronger will be eligible to return Sunday, April 6, against the Phoenix Coyotes.
