Teemu Selanne to return for a final season

30 August 2013 - 03:29 PM

I think this is an awesome way to announce you are coming back.  Lebron ought to take notes.  I also think the NHL is better off with Teemu playing.  He is a class act!

Selanne's announcement video shows him struggling at golf, eventually throwing his bag into a lake in frustration. When he realizes his phone is in the bag, he jumps into the lake to retrieve it before calling Ducks general manager Bob Murray.

SiriusXM NHL Network @SiriusXMNHL 8m

Team previews continue today on @SiriusXMNHL. 2 teams per day on the Power Play. Today @DetroitRedWings and @DallasStars We begin at 4pm ET

 

I really like the coverage that they give to hockey.  They probably have Ken Holland lined up to talk to as well as other experts.  Its an hour long so it should be a pretty in depth conversation.


Gary Bettman Stanley Cup Presentations

24 June 2013 - 11:00 AM

 

The Stanley Cup will be in the building tonight in Boston, with the Chicago Blackhawks one win away from claiming the championship. And that means it’s time to get excited about one of the highlights of the NHL season: Watching commissioner Gary Bettman struggle through presenting the Cup.

 

In the years since Bettman’s debut as the Stanley Cup presenter, the ceremony has evolved into one of the most awkward traditions in all of sports. Bettman fidgets, the crowd boos, the posed photo takes way too long, and the winning captain fakes a smile while he waits for Bettman to just let go of the Cup and hit the bricks.

I thought this article was really good.  I love the analysis.  I thought the most awkward was indeed correct.  I love how Rod just grabs the cup and lifts it over his head with no photo op.
