NHL

In A Business Built On Fans, How Much Access Is Too Much?

by Mike Watts

Mike Watts, WFUV Sports

At first, I was offended when I heard John Tortorella refused to answer basic questions from the media about injuries and in-game pep talks. He is paid plenty of money, money earned off the backs of the fans that attend games and spend a ridiculous sum for “NHL Center Ice”, to answer these questions.  How could a hockey coach ignore those fans that bleed blue when they want a little more access to the team they pay so much to see?  In hindsight, my offense was shortsighted.

Kenny Ducey and I were able to get a great outlook on the Rangers season talking with Rangers play-by-play announcer for MSG Network, Sam Rosen. 

Rosen had an overall optimistic feel about where the team is in comparison to the start of the season.  We were able to ask him why the Rangers power play has been so poor this year, if he was surprised by Rick Nash's low goal total, and if he thinks Head Coach John Tortorella is too harsh on his players.

Two weeks into this lockout-shortened 48-game season, only the Devils, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the San Jose Sharks have yet to lose a game in regulation.  But for a team that is technically undefeated due to the NHL’s use of the one-point overtime loss, the Devils are looking beat up after losing their last three games following the 3rd period buzzer. 

Devils Can Do A Lot More than Just Win the Stanley Cup this Season

No other state was affected more by Hurricane Sandy than New Jersey.  For almost two days in late October, the super storm destroyed and shredded apart the Jersey shore and left many residents without homes and power, and some communities were completely underwater.  That is why the start to the 2012-2013 hockey season was desperately needed for all of New Jersey.

At Long Last! The NHL Lockout is Over

Lockout.  Just the very word can send shivers down a sports fans’ spine.  The agonizing thought that an individual cannot watch their beloved team on a regular basis because millionaires are squabbling with millionaires over miniscule details is almost unbearable.
