I put on Msg and they covered the lockout on sportsdesk and made it
the major part of the half-hour program.
Milbury gave a brief comment with reporters, Lou Lamoriello as usual
was accessible and gave his comments. Deb Kaufman went to Toronto to
get player reaction and Mark Parrish did an interview w/Kaufman. Some
other players gave comments. Fishler sat in the Msg studios and gave
Here's what caught my attention. Where are Dolan and Sather?
This is Dolan's program and his network. There is a picture of him in
Toronto at these meetings. The team that claimed more losses than
anyone (40.9m) does not share his thoughts on the network he is
paying to show this program while Islander and Devil representatives
make themselves available and the Sound Tigers can not get a game on
television at a sold-out Coliseum?
Where's Sather these days? Calling free agents so he can sign half
the NHL when this is over because Josef Balej and Jamie Lundmark can
barely produce in the AHL?
To me if Dolan is not going to speak on his own network to the fans,
why bother covering the NHL-NHLPA meetings at all?
