Just when the NHL is gaining some momentum and clawing its way back into the consciousness of the sports world, they come up with this. It makes the sport look like a novelty act.

And just because people are still talking about it doesn't make it a success. People still talk about it the same way people still reference Cop Rock and Gigli, as in "How did those piece of crap ideas ever

2008-05-12T15:50:00.000-04:00

The Fox Glow Puck was a huge success. Why? Because 10 years later, people still remember it and it still gets people talking about the game. In a sport where probably even half the fans don't know who won the Stanley Cup 5 years ago, anything that gets the league publicity is a good thing.

I love the NHL but to hell with what the "hockey purists" think. Where exactly do you think they're

Are you kidding me the glowing puck was awesome. (the slapshot streak was stupid though).

If Hockey wants to have a chance of legitimacy they need to get the casual fans back. The glow puck could do this if they don't make it too gaudy. I love this idea. The hardcore purists will come around the same way that the hardcore purist of football came around for the facemask, forward pass and

@ssreporters

Oh I completely agree. I understand why their is a bias and really have no major issues with it. Ontop of that if I could get it in HD I would watch that over VS in a second.

I still remember during the Edmonton series two years ago, the entire "kick" goal in game 6 where the wings scored. I was watching it on FSN Detroit, Micky was saying "Oh there is no

2008-05-12T11:34:00.000-04:00

The main problem I had with the glow puck was how they handled situations when the puck was by the near boards. Instead of the realism of having the puck continue to be hidden, the track was shown as if it was in the first or second row. It doesn't take a whole lot of hockey education to learn that if there's a scrum by the boards, chances are the puck is in there somewhere.

2008-05-12T11:33:00.000-04:00

"It's a black puck on white ice, get HD or something if you can't follow it."

It's not so easy when the puck goes into the near boards, or when it's in front of, oh, anything BUT the ice, like a player, or his stick, or a logo on the ice, or the goal, or the little pseudo-semicircle in front of the goal, or the FAR boards, or...

2008-05-12T11:15:00.000-04:00

@ Nick,

Versus is the worst, They have too many people in the studio for one, and the commentating is brutal.

Joe Beninati is growing on me.

2008-05-12T11:14:00.000-04:00

@ Jeff, I understand the bias with CBC...they are in Canada after all.:)

However they are still airing the American series and have the rights to game 4 and game 5 of the Wings/Stars.

Jim Hughson and Craig Simpson are top notch.

2008-05-12T11:09:00.000-04:00

@nick

I get VS in HD, while I don't get CBC in HD... so I had to go with the better picture instead of the better overall broadcast.

It's still hard to watch CBC when any canadian team is playing though.

2008-05-12T11:02:00.000-04:00

I think puck-tracking was very useful for showing deflections. If Versus showed some restraint with it and only used it for replays, I'd be all for it.
Although if it's only going to be used for replays it's not very cost-effective, so I say screw it.

Any hockey fan in Detroit watches playoff games on CBC anyway. VERSUS is so horrible.

2008-05-12T10:52:00.000-04:00

I might be one of the forw fans that liked the glowing puck when Fox used it. I thought it was a good idea because it helped you follow the puck, but that's me. I think Versus should bring the glowing puck back, maybe that might draw some viewers to their games.
