    MSG is showing the Press Conference at 3 on Friday...and also airing the lottery at 4. I found this out during the Mets\Padres game, of all things(Glavine is pitching, and they were discussing how excited he is about the NHL's return, mentioned that he was a Kings draftpick\outstanding hockey player, etc). Mets announcers were surprisingly complimentary\excited about the deal being reached. Shrug.

    Maybe americans dont hate hockey as much as we thought? I think it can bounce back, from what i've gathered lately.

    It does look like more and more US networks are picking it up. Earlier in the day, we got confirmation here in Colorado that our network (Altitude) would be carrying Friday's events (news conference, lottery, etc.) live in their entirety. (Altitude can be seen on DirecTV channel 644.)

    Nice. Hopefully at least one channel in the US airs the whole lottery...hopefully it's MSG

    Not sure what you mean. Altitude and MSG are airing everything... the news conference, full lottery, etc.

    For example, ESPN is only airing the first 2 picks. If MSG is definetly sticking with the whole lottery, than that's great

    Yeah, I saw that ESPNews is only cutting in and showing only the top 2 live. That's why your best bet is with Altitude or MSG... I'm certain that Altitude will have the lottery in its entirety, and I'm guessing MSG will also.

    One of the Mets Announcers does play-by-play for the Isles TV broadcast. Howie Rose. Well at least he used to announce some Mets games from time to time. I don't know if he still does, or if he was even one of the announcers for this particular Mets-Padres games.

    Howie Rose was a former host on WFAN. He is one of the few "Hockey Guys" in the NY Media. And how he likes to point out: Definitely a face for the Radio...

    Howie does radio for the Mets.

    He also used to do radio for the Rangers. He's best remembered by Ranger fans for his "Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!" call.

    funny but in 1983 I got out of school and took over the family season tickets; they have this award ceremony the last game of the season where they honor the area HS hockey player for both scholastic and ability, and the winner was Tommy Glavine. He played a few years after me and I never played against him at Billerica HS but some of my buddies did and he was tremendous. We were all aware of him. I always wondered what happened to him because he never made the NHL?

    Tom's actually going to get serious consideration for the HOF and one of his HS teamates I believe was Gary Disarcina; I believe they were together at same time.

    MSG Does a GREAT job on covering Rangers hockey - they do not ignore it like ESPN and others do they give plenty of attention to it and I wish every station was like this

    I didn't realize you guys get MSG up there. Do you see Ranger games? Will Northern NY get Sabres games and Southern NY get Rangers games when they play on the same day?

    MSG is a great network because they give hockey the good treatement, but also what makes it so great is the duo of Sam and JD. They are both great in their own right and even better together.

    I imagine everyone'll be using TSN's feed, since they say their coverage is "exclusive". But that's probably better for everybody.

    I think they shut down that station after the last year

    anyways, it goes to show you that they do pay attention to hockey somewhat in NY :P

    So true. They would be even better if Dolan wasn't around. You can tell that they had to hold back several times when the Rangers were playing bad.

    Empire went under last fall. The staff is gone, and the Sabres have been shifted to MSG.
