They showed the Celtics and Red Sox when they won.

I know you're joking but really, that could not be further from the truth in reality.

Truth is, I specifically asked them not to include the Bruins to annoy you...

I don't know what you're talking about with the Bruins. I personally saw a lot of footage of their victory parade on the Sportscenter. The funny thing is even though throughout the course of the year the NHL is underrepresented it seems to be a favorite sport to cover among many of the anchors "Bartender get me something on ice."

I guess part of it is self promotion. It's why on College Football Live analyst all to often will go off on long winded sidebars about how great the SEC is. Why virtually all the topics on First Take, PTI, Sportsnation, and Around the Horn mostly center around sports you see on ESPN like the NBA, College Basketball/football, Baseball, NFL, Tennis, Nascar.

Then again they also seem to ignore many sports they actually cover (on their flagship programs) like softball, "poker", Lacrosse, college baseball, WNBA, Worlds Strongest Man, etc.

The other part of it is the NHL still sort of qualifies as a niche sport. I'd guess that more people have heard of Ron Artest then Nicklas Lindstrom or Chris Pronger. However I think if the TV deal with ESPN would have gone through you would have seen more stories on Sportscenter and more talking points on the debate shows.

It's a giant conspiracy about the zionist and Israel, the liberal media, and the Illuminati consipring with the Roswell Aliens and Al Queda.

But yeah for now ESPN only really talks about the NHL when they have to. It's why you see topics on every little thing going on in the NBA and only the big things in the NHL.

What I am talking about is the introduction to ever SC they show clips of the past years champs. I was sad not to see the Bruins.

SS have they ever shown a Stanley Cup champ in the intro? Do you know?

I'm sure they have. The intro is ever changing

Back to the Capitals, talk that Kolbe won't return as the voice of the Caps. What a shame, he's one of the best in my opinion

Good win to start off the season for the Caps last night. It was nice to see Alexander Semin put one in on the breakaway, and Greenie came up big in OT after we killed their penalty.

Damn! That would make the SE a much stronger division, in terms of competition between the Wings, Caps, and Lightning. But why the Southeast? In terms of geographic location Detroit isn't really SE.
