I can’t tell you have many times I have heard there is nothing going on with the NHL. Here’s some proof.
Buffalo Sabres : http://sabres.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=679827
The Buffalo Sabres today announced that Rick Jeanneret, hockey’s longest-tenured broadcaster, has signed a new, three-year contract with the team to remain its primary play-by-play voice. The Sabres Hall-of-Famer will call an increasingly reduced number of games during the next three seasons before stepping away from the microphone for good. Veteran broadcaster Dan Dunleavy has been added to the Sabres broadcast team and will serve as Jeanneret’s substitute before assuming the primary play-by-play duties for the 2016-17 season
For those who do not know Rick Jenneret is one of best Play-by play voices to ever hit the air waves. He has a way of making fans feel like they are at the game. I’m sure when 2016 comes around his voice will be missed.

Jim covered our team for The Arizona Republic from 2007 until 2012, when he retired after a long and successful career in journalism.
Not long after the Coyotes found new life in the desert, they have been dealt a blow. It just goes to so you even a Journalist can become a member of the team.
Columbus Blue Jackets: http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=680065
While the idea of a potential move to the “team” side of the business has been a constant thought since he realized he wouldn’t be able to crack an NHL roster as a player, Zito didn’t have it on the front burner because of his rapidly-accelerating career as a player agent. In 1995, he founded Acme World Sports and less than 20 years later, it’s one of the most powerful agencies in professional hockey.
If you write it, we will find it. There is always NHL news to be found.
