    Bring back the Norris Division.

    While I'm not surprised, I'm still disappointed.

    If there is any year to push as much of this shit through as possible it is definately now, when all leagues are basically making no money.

    The further fans are out of stands and all this shit is just televised the worse it'll get, unfortunately.

    Like, fans being in the stands wasn't gonna stop them from doing it before, but at least they had reason for pushback.

    Yeah that's pretty embarrassing

    Scotland will surely be pleased we named the Canadian division after them though

    An NHL source tells ESPN that selling the naming rights to its divisions is viewed internally as a one-year only campaign.

    Sure, Jan

    Well, that escalated quickly.....

    So, I don't love it, but understand it considering how gate driven the NHL is.

    I'll save my outrage for when they start trying to preface the team names with sponsorships.

    I honestly don't mind this, though MassMutual is a stupid brand name, says man who has never heard of it.

    Hell, let's sponsor the awards trophies too: " and now, the "Pampers Calder Memorial Trophy" for rookie of the year!

    Why on earth are they still going to do the World Juniors this year? Are they stupid? Just cancel the damn tournament, it happens every freaking year. Who cares if we miss a year.

    I was on record saying this tournament shouldn’t have happened, so let’s never speak of it again

    Honestly, if (big if) the divisional sponsorships is a deal for only this season, then I welcome it. NHL teams get more of their money from gate receipts/gameday concessions than any other major (north) american pro sport. The TV deals are a much smaller percentage of revenue compared to the NFL/NBA/MLB/etc. As long as they can't get fans in seats, they need to do some creative things as a league to raise funds, otherwise a few teams are going to fold between now and whenever the USA gets its shit together on the pandemic.

    no idea who the tweeter is but the important part is
    Theresa Feaster, the first female assistant coach at the men's World Junior Championship AND first female coach to win gold🥇

    Allegedly a voice of reason.

    Shayna is 1/3 of the Too Many Men Podcast and is fairly prominent on Hockey Twitter. She also writes for either The Athletic or is a Rangers beat writer. And finally, she makes great hockey-team-themed masks on her Etsy! (I got the Gritty one!)

    Dallas stars just had to cancel their practice and they aren't allowed to say why*

    *multiple nhl insiders were told its because of a covid outbreak on the team

    Oh hey,

    Columbus just pulled a bunch of players out before practice due to "an abundance of caution and the nhls covid protocols"

    I saw he was banned, but I didn't see any screenshot of what he said to get banned.

    Is his podcast gone,too?

  • ChanusChanus I've seen things... Registered User regular

    and uh

    oof

    Milbury officially never to return to NBC sports.

    Which is both not surprising, but also super surprising because he was an awful and offensive moron for the first 14 years of his tenure...so really what changed(budget cutting).

    Wait. Ex coach Mike Babcock as an analyst?

    Do they ever look at the giant drum of Hockey Men they can pick from, with the worst floating on top, and think, "maybe not this time"?

    NBC has done so much damage to the sport in America, it's honestly depressing. Really hope that someone else outbids them when the next TV contract comes up, because they've had it forever and somehow keep getting worse.

    When you watch old highlights you really gotta wonder how we ever tolerated sports on TV back then....

    As a Texas resident, not terribly surprised. It’s a shitshow up in this state!

    Just opened up Hulu to check on game coverage only to see that Fox Sports Detroit is no longer there. Seems the only way to stream local games now is to subscribe to AT&T's streaming service for $80/month or nhl.com and a vpn. Why are we moving backwards in 2021.
