Sabres T.V. ?

I think I read somewhere, there is a year remaining with Adelphia? I think lots of us would like to see the next T.V. deal split. Home on Cable. Road on a Local U.H.F. station.

What about the NHL nationally? I have'nt much cared for ESPN's coverage. and Fox was a Joke.

Out here in the hinterlands of Maryland, I have to rely on digital cable for my Sabres fix -- the broadcasts are pretty lousy, but I've seen worse. Oddly enough, the Capitals do a really decent job.

Regarding national broadcasts, I like the concept of Spike picking up the NHL, but I don't think that's really very likely to result in anything other than people on web boards dicussing it in theory.

I'd be willing to give Fox another shot. Their last go-round was without all the experience they've built up with all the various regional Fox Sports Net stations... and I think Fox has a little more belief in themselves as broadcasters, so they might be less prone to gimmickry.

Seems like the NHL itself is supplying the gimmickry, anyway.

I believe there's 2 years remaining on the Empire TV contract. It was sublet to MSG.

Wasn't WGRZ interested in picking the games back up? Perhaps it was just a rumor I heard at some pub.

This is all I could find on it, other than earlier reports that they were in negotiations.

Quote:
Adelphia has negotiated a deal to sublet Sabres' broadcasts to New York City-based Madison Square Garden Network for the remaining two years of its television contract with the NHL franchise, Haywood (GM for Adelphia Commincations) said. The deal has the Sabres' approval.

Who wants to volunteer to call the Sabres?

Are they still going to keep Jeanneret and Lorenz, do you think? I almost forgot how much I loved those guys and would be heartbroken if they didn't do the games anymore.

It's all covered in Pergament's column in today's Buffalo News.

The only things certain about the Buffalo Sabres broadcast plans this coming season are that Rick Jeanneret will return as play-by-play man and Jim Lorentz as analyst and the games will be carried on MSG and WGR-AM.
The rest of the broadcast team is up in the air. WGRZ, channel 2, is interested in carrying some games and that may still come to pass. Quinn is also still hoping to have some games carried in Canada.
