Puck Podcast – January 2, 2010

On this week’s show we’ll talk about another amazing Winter Classic and the announcement of the rosters for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. We’ll also tell you about a very scary incident in a minor league game and a ridiculous dispute between a team and a restaurant in Calgary. Plus all the big goals, hits, fights and everything else that went down this week in the NHL. Plus your e-mails and posts as well.

  1. I liked how you guys bagged on the NBC coverage of the Winter Classic. I am afraid their coverage ‘style’ is just a symptom of why hockey will never become a mainstream American TV sport.
    As for local hockey coverage – thank all that is holy that we get Versus (and NHL Network) out here in the middle of nowhere… there is NO local NHL coverage for those of us who do not live in a big city.

  2. Eddie – were you able to go to or watch the Wings/Kings game last night? Wow. I only saw the highlights but two end-of-period goals after being outshot by the Kings like that, and some great goaltending by Howard (50-something saves) made for a fun-looking game… good to see the Redwings eek out that win against a great Kings team.

  3. Mark – I meant to ask, are you able to get much NHL coverage in Europe, and how does that work? I will be in Germany for the next 6 months and am hoping to still catch some games.

  4. Dave, https://europe.espn360.com/espn360/nhl is always a possibility if you are OK with watching the games on a computer (alternatively connecting it to a TV). Never tried the service myself, I’ve read some complaints about it though, so not sure how well it actually works. Don’t know about the TV coverage in Germany.

  5. Dave,
    Like Mac said, ESPN360.com is really the only way to get access to anything on par with the NHL Center Ice package here in Europe. Yes, you have to watch on your computer, but here in Denmark the only other alternative is to subscribe to TV2 Sports Channel – which costs an arm and a leg and only shows 5 live NHL games a week, plus the Danish pro league (which is a joke). I have the ESPN360 season package and have to say it’s a godsend. I can see EVERY NHL game if I actually had time to do so, and the quality is great. I don’t know what I’d do without it.
