 @Jay Argentina  @Tnhgeno That's interesting, I did not know that the NHL ever had a contract with ESPN (pre-lockout I was young enough to not pay attention to channels). I guess my theory may not have held true in the past, but ESPN sure does a great job of pushing all sports SEC and the other major professional sports so I figured the same would go for hockey. Regardless of the channel, I just really want hockey to exist this year...

 @Tnhgeno I personally hope that NBC and the NHL don't re-up their contract because a contract with ESPN would be MUCH more beneficial long term to the sport. Why is it that you very rarely see NHL games discussed on ESPN during the regular season and the playoffs only get brief mentions?It is because ESPN does a really good job of growing products that they have a stake in. If the NHL were to get a contract with ESPN, then Sportscenter/etc would talk more about hockey because it would get them good ratings. Most sports fans, at least in my generation, watch ESPN a lot and would totally buy in to hockey more if it was more easily presented to them.

 @ThroatShot If we don't get Suter and TPH retires, our D is going to slide more than a little.. Lidstrom would be (more likely, will be) a huge loss

Re: Nyquist taking Cleary's spot

 

From the reports I've seen, Nyquist will be taking Helm's spot and will be playing on the 3rd line with Cleary and Abby

Shanahan's gonna lay down the hammer on that FOR SURE. After the emphasis on head damage all year, a blatant intent to injure like that will be punished - playoffs or not. Someone please get that on YouTube immediately

Kenny says he thinks Helm will be playing tonight. Helm's practicing today with Miller and Cleary and he says he'll skate in warm-ups and take it from there (via Twitter)
