Lupul on the move again

7

Lupul and Gardiner for Beauchemin. Anaheim trying for a playoff run?

Obviously, I was wrong about Comcast/NBC merger

+

When I said that it was "all good" for Flyers fans. Welcome, Pierre, to Versus broadcasts. :-(((( The only good news about this is that it may be that NBC will control Versus rather than the other way around. If Dick Ebersole is given complete control, then you will see "NBC Sports Channel" coming to fruition sooner, with overall better technical quality of broadcasts. And, apparently, way worse announcers. But also, likely NBC/Comcast/Versus will be "all-in" on the NHL contract with the resulting higher cap (and Leino multiyear contract, of course).

FCC Chairman's merger conditions could impact Flyer/NHL fans

1

As a required provision of the upcoming Comcast/NBC Universal merger, the FCC chairman wants to impose conditions of"equal access" of satellite providers to Comcast/NBC content. This may have the positive unintended consequence of allowing CSN broadcasts over satellite, and possible avoiding stupid DirectTV/Dish disputes as happened with Versus/NHL broadcasts (Versus, CSN and NBC would all be owned by Comcast).

TGP gets shout-out by the Phillies Zone

Matt Gelb cites FM's bullpen research on philly.com! Nice (and deserved) feather in the cap for you, FM.

Well OF COURSE the Phils would sign Reyes

Check out whom Baseball Reference thinks Reyes is "similar" to. I'm not encouraged by #1, and I'd rather see the real #2 than Reyes.

Jeff Passan gets excited about stats

1

Good take on some of the newer stats from Passan's "near-mainstream media" Yahoo blog. One thing we all can agree on: Pete Happy really stinks now.

Bobby Ryan signs, 5 years for $25 million

+

Sigh. Murray says Bobby "always wanted to stay". Maybe hyperbole, but since I used to live about 7 miles from the Honda Center, and he went to HS there, I do get if Bobby feels that way. Of course, there are 25 million other reasons to stay.

SBN getting street cred with the Wall Street crowd

+

Here I was, reading cnbc.com as part of my real job, and SBN shows up! Note that they are lumping in SBN with some real big-time startups that I knew about that the Wall Street types are fawning over. Bloglords, congrats on the corporate venture capital from Comcast, too. (note: gotta read through to the end)

Comcast and NBC Universal and hockey fans

  Yesterday, we debated the relationship of ESPN, Disney and the NHL.  Today, as I flip between CNBC, ESPN News and BSH, I am watching Jeff Immelt of GE discuss wind turbines and auto battery...
