    Does this mean we won't be seeing the simulated Billy Martin press conference they had prepared for next week?

      It also means we're spared ESPN12: Dr. Gonzo's Eating Channel.

                    If I read that correctly, espn now has easier access to highlights and has rights to re-air "classic" games on espn classic? Wow, that certainly was worth a press alert.

                      re-airing of "recent" game also. I take that as games from last night to a week ago.

                        They're hedging their bets with OLN by keeping a relationship.

                        And ESPN is hedging their bets. If the NHL comes back strong and/or HD hockey takes off, they may want hockey back.

                          You're probably right, which also probably explains why espn still has Barry Melrose around. However, initial returns on oln certainly don't suggest that hockey's coming back strong.

                            I'd be shocked if OLN were doing any kind of numbers at this stage, given the date (still football season, post-strike) and the fact that it has viewer recognition problems.

                            The salary cap and HD will save hockey.

                            Laurie is an idiot for selling now.
