NHL Blogs, kind of

I guess I'm not "getting" the half-way houses of content. Linda Cohn (ESPN on-air personality and former hockey player) laments the lack of a hockey audience. Commissioner Bettman has repeatedly said that hockey isn't an ideal TV sport, and he's been looking to electronic properties to grow the popularity of the sport both in North America and in the rest of the world that provides about a third of the NHL's talent. What better way to do this than making making the web site a true medium of the fan? Maybe we'll be critical, or loud, or flat-out wrong, but we'll be passionate, productive, and visible as well.
I'm already signed up -- and my first challenge was to find a way to get my NHL "Community Connect" zone accessible from the outside world. It's beta, it's got some rough edges, but it's still safer for armchair (left) wings than skating into the corner.
