(YouTube)   With six games tonight, the regular Wed Night Hockey Thread should have something for most anyone. Rags/Flyers kick things off at 7pm ET. At 7:30 we see if getting rid of whatever was infecting AM's face will help or hurt things for Toronto. Etc, etc   (youtube.com) divider line

So I was hoping for more ESPN2 games on normal nights with the new deal, nope.

ESPN+, and 10pm games on TNT.

The NHL might have got more money out of the TV contract, but they basically OLNd themselves again.

The stream stealing will continue until coverage improves.

Good evening, folks.  I am happy to report that I received my COVID booster earlier today.  For those of us in the United States, our national games tonight are:

Flyers/Rangers @ 7:00pm ET on NHL Network
Penguins/Oilers @ 10:00pm ET on TNT

Off topic: if you want to know what a labor stoppage looks like in 2021, go look at the MLB website or any MLB team's website. Anything about an active MLB player is gone.

Of course, this comes on the heels of teams offering literally hundreds of millions of dollars to free agents. Spend obscene amounts of money then claim you can't afford to field a competitive team.

NHL owners do a lot of dumb things, but I have to give them credit for putting things like maximum contract term in the collective bargaining agreement to try to limit how dumb they can be.


Except for Leopold of Minnesota:
Right before the lockout that forced the salary cap, Minnesota signed Parise and Suter to 13-year $98M contracts and THEN fought for an lower limit on contract length and and a rollback and truncating of existing contracts.
The slimy bastard okay'd those ridiculous contracts thinking he wouldn't have to honour them fully.

desertgeek: Forbes reported this morning that the Coyotes are for sale with the goal of relocating to Houston.

The Coyotes and two local sources for reporters in Phoenix all are saying it's bullshiat


Forbes as turned into a complete neo-con rag vomiting rumors and half-truths on everything from real estate to COVID.  I'd sooner take point spread tips from a hot tub streamer.

Lundkvist sounds way too much like Lundqvist for it not to be weird whenever they say his name on the Rangers' broadcast.

Probably won't be around much for a couple of hours.  MrsRT has really gotten into The Great British Baking Show (or something like that).  So she's got the tv until 10 & then I get it when the Ducks arrive on the scene.  And as I've more or less gotten into the show/making snarky comments about the culinary disasters...yeah, ok.

_/and as I'm doing lots of organizing of various computer files/cleaning up all sorts of accumulated digital crap, not easy to put a game on in the background here...alas
_/_/so enjoy them, see you in a bit

bingethinker: JFC. I'm watching the Vancouver-Ottawa game, and the first intermission show was the Sportsnet studio commentators knob-slobbering the Leafs.


Those teams are dogshiat and their season is already over.  What the hell is there to say about them?

What could possibly go wrong putting a man of Patrick Roy's disposition in a high pressure role that's under constant scrutiny by the press and fans in one of the most intense hockey markets in the world?

If you're referencing that MLB has just locked out the players, talk to me when they start missing games

You aren't kidding.  I checked the Detroit Tigers' website, front page is the commissioner's letter to baseball fans.  The roster page is . . . interesting, to say the least.  Names are still there, but all the pictures are gone.

My question is, is this what a 2021 labor stoppage looks like, or is this what a labor stoppage with a commissioner as petty as Rob Manfred looks like?
_/Both?

This is the response from some Coyotes fans to all the rumors and bullshiat.


Nicely done.
