NHL signs 10 year deal with NBC/Versus

http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=6389351

I was hoping they went with some deal involving ESPN for more exposure. Pretty weak.


ESPN wasn't going to give them more exposure, they didn't want to be the exclusive channel and were only interested in show one game a week
But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger for power became known to more and more people, the demands to do something about this outrageous man became louder and louder.

the deal didnt have to be exclusive to either company. every other sports organization deals with multiple broadcasters. and when i say more exposure, i don't mean number of games, i mean reach number of viewers.

I don't know who needs more who right now. NHL needs ESPN more or ESPN needs NHL more? No NFL, no NBA, no MLB starting this October for ESPN. It's going to suck for them.

On a brighter note, Chicago killed Vancouver. Ouch.

The deal had to be exclusive to get the money they did from NBC/Comcast. That money, plus the unprecedented amount of games as part of the package, blows away having one game a week on ESPN2 that would be just as poorly promoted, covered, and recapped as anything was towards the end of ESPN's previous NHL contract.

lol, go team couture/pavs.

Edit: If you'd have told me we'd win 6-5 ot with Nitimaki in net and down 4-0, I'd have laughed at you.

Hay, Penner got a point.

And that will pretty much do it for Los Angeles. I doubt they have the strength to play after losing that one.

Can't believe L.A. gave up a 4 goal lead, that will really put a hurting on them. Kunitz only getting one game is a little suprising but I guess they took his history of no real incidents like this into consideration. As a Pens fan I thought it was pretty bad, but it seems no damage was done.

Holy Shaq-fu, I can't believed I turned off the Kings-Sharks game. I was SOOO tired when the Kings had just made it 2-4, but I wish I had stayed up... I wish I lived Texas or Oklahoma, I could catch all east coast and west coast games without being ridiculously tired.

Oh well, Caps Rangers 0-0 so far. Hoping the Caps PK can hold together.

Pens have come up with some big kills. Roloson has been standing on his head all night. Here comes OT#2.

EDIT: James Neal scores 3:38 into the 2nd OT to win the game for the Pens and puts them up 3-1. Woo!

Dude... Is it just me, or is this the most exciting QF in recent memory? Multiple comebacks, including a Sharks 4-0 comeback (OT win) and a Caps 3-0 comeback (2x OT win)? This is why I love hockey.

The way this game is playing out we might have another multiple overtime game tonight.

EDIT:
Detroit sweeps Winnipeg 4-0 after a 6-3 win over Phoenix.

Chances are pretty good that the Canucks close it out tonight. At least.... they'd better. At least you guys got your cup last year though right?

Yes, and we were almost the 5th team in history to miss the playoffs after winning the cup (thanks, Dallas!).

They keep showing the commercial when Kane scored the winning goal. I was at a bar across the street from my house watching the game when he scored that goal. Everyone in the bar was like "Wait, what just happened? Did Kane score? Did they win?" And then about 15 seconds later, the whole place was going nuts (well, as nutty as 20 people can get in a small bar next to the commuter train tracks).

Who do you think will win the Calder? Fun race this year.
