Introducing Snap Shots from!

Hello NHL Business Blog Readers!

In my never ending quest to ensure that you have the best possible experience on my site, I decided to install a nice little tool called Snap Shots. It enhances links with visual previews of the destination sites, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns or anything else you would like to share with me, fire up an email and contact me at:!

NHL Playoffs Set for Wednesday: NBC Makes A Curious Broadcasting Choice

Well it looks like the second season is finally upon us! There are really some surprises from the broadcasting front. has apparently decided to skip showing the Rangers vs. Devils series in favour of Detroit/Nashville??? If I were NBC I wouldn't even show a Western Conference series, it would be the Rangers/Devils and the Caps/Flyers. Those are the series which have the largest combined TV audiences. If they had to show a Western Conference game it would have to be Dallas/Anaheim. I can understand their reasoning behind showing Washington/Philadelphia, but I have no idea what the hell they were thinking when they decided to show Detroit/Nashville!!!! I would be surprised if they get decent ratings from the Western Conference Series.

On the Versus side of things, it looks like they will be involved in broadcasting nearly every series. However Sidney Crosby and his Pittsburgh Penguins will only be shown twice! Only Montreal/Boston will be shown less with one national TV appearance. You can find the schedule for the quarterfinals at
