    The NHL Office sent out a memo to officials telling them to "dial back" enforcement of slashing and face off violations.

    And it's not even April...

    Yes. The Wings are having trouble with the new faceoff rules in pre-season. Been called 4-5 times already.

    Jagr will be 46 this season and yes his goal total was his lowest ever for a full season last year but I still scratch my head why nobody has signed him yet. He did have 8 powerplay goals though. His 46 points were more than D Sedin and M Duchene. You would think a team would be willing to sign him at the 650,000 dollar veteran minimum

    NBC and NBCSN will not broadcast NHL games during the winter Olympics.

    About that increased exposure, Gary...

    I'm wondering if teams are waiting for the beginning of the season after LTIR contracts get taken off the cap hit.

    What was the oldest Gordie ever played as a regular in the N or W (not the circus act with his grandsons)? Jaromir must be within 10 years of that now, right?

    Aren't they going to be broadcasting the Olympics and not have the opportunity to show any NHL games anyway?

    13 hr time difference between East Coast and Korea. Live stuff is in the AM. Figure skating will be time shifted to prime time. Hockey, I expect, will be shown in the wee hours and hilites shown in the evening.

    Heck, maybe they'll timeshift curling.

    Yep, but it still means the NHL's national exposure goes dark. They'll still have arenas with fans and local coverage though. That may be enough I suppose.

    There probably would be zero NHL games on NBC during this time if the Olympics were not going on and maybe a total of 4 games on NBCSN. The amount of national exposure throughout the week on these channels is not much. If anything, now out of market fans will not have those selected games on NBCSN blacked out from the NHL package. For fans of Pittsburgh and Chicago (seems like the only two teams playing on NBCSN) they will now be able to watch these games if they have NHL package and no cable.

    Haha yeah good point, with the stupid blackout rules this might increase exposure. God this league is ran terribly.

    I only watch my team's games during the regular season, so meh.

    If the Hawks aren't on I'll likely watch the Olympics anyway.

    Also - who thought NBC would show any NHL anyway. The Olympics are huge for them.

    There's plenty to whine about when it comes to the NHL, but this is not one of those things.
