#2214482 No NHL for European fans

Posted by Norwegian Red Wing on 13 October 2011 - 09:57 AM

Im just sad.. Two days before season-opener it was known that ESPN America (the one provider of NHL-games to tv-viewers in Europe) would not send any games this season. NHL was asking too much, it was said..

Then news was updated with ESPNAnot giving up, but still trying to buy the rights from Medge Consulting (owning rights in Europe).

But now it is final...

The following is the latest statement from ESPN America on the NHL TV rights for the UK and Europe:

“Unfortunately, the NHL will not be part of the programming schedule on ESPN and ESPN America in the UK, Ireland or Nordic countries this season.
ESPN spoke to the NHL and their rights holders about continuing a partnership in these regions but we could not reach an agreement that worked for everyone.

We wish the National Hockey League and its new partners all the best while we remain in active discussions with them about coverage in many other parts of Europe.”

..as if this is not enough, NHL GameCenter is not available for us this season either, as far as I can see... :angry:

I feel sick.. Just had to let this out.. :(

#2054390 Wings need a goalie

Need a new goalie, yes! As it is now, Im almost certain we loose when Ozzie is standing between the pipes. He is not the goalie he used to be.. :thumbdown:

Some say we need to cut him some slack.. "only four games" ..SO? Save% .885.. Not good enough!
