2014 Draft Broadcast Inquiries: TV, Radio, Streams, etc.

Anyone know who the provider will be for NBCSN's USA TV coverage of the first round of the draft on Friday? I know in the past that the TSN feed has been used, but I haven't heard whether that will be the same this year or not. Thanks!

TSN is doing live coverage of the first round. From what I hear though this is the last draft they'll get to broadcast due to the stupid new TV agreement between the NHL and Sportsnet.

Coverage starts at 7 EST, right? So does that mean the first pick will be made around 7:30?

I think there's I am remembering correctly, the first pick is announced somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes after the telecast begins. Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

That only deals with NHL games. TSN can still run their draft shows, trade deadline shows, and free agent frenzy shows.

NBCSN will use the TSN feed

Is NBCSN carrying rounds 2-7 too? And what time does coverage start on Sat?

Personally I would much rather watch TSN doing coverage of the draft next year in a studio then watch Sportsnet's live coverage.

Personally I am dreading Day 2 coverage of the draft on the NHL network, they seem to spend rounds 2-7 talking about everything besides who is getting picked

I think the NHL network covers it both in US and Canada, coverage starts at 10 am

Agreed. Most of the time I have to do that research myself. While it's fun, it kinda defeats the purpose of even showing those rounds.

I guess the theory is people who actually care who will get picked are going to watch no matter what, so they will try get 5000 more viewers having 10 minutes features on what the Leafs did on the first day.

I personally hope some online radio has the smart idea to have up to date broadcast telling us who actually get picked because I will listen to that over watching the NHL network. I don't care if it's a bunch of non media amateur guys who are just telling us pick after pick, it will be much better then the NHL network. Basically all you need to have a decent round 2 draft radio show is a couple guys at the draft emailing/texting/calling picks to guys in a studio/bedroom and those guys relaying you the picks like 30 seconds to a minute after the fact

Personally I wish if the NHL network felt inclined to talk about everything but the actual picks they could at least have a scroll on the bottom telling us the picks

Probably one of the TSN radio stations (Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, etc).

It's hard to figure the lack of understanding a network like the NHL network has regarding their programming. Why would you carry the draft by having people yapping throughout and hardly showing any of the selections? The least they could do is have a side bar showing the picks as they are made. I pretty much tune them out and watch the picks online by using a feed that records the picks as they happen. Bob McKenzie will be part of the NHL network broadcast this year.

McKenzie has to cut people off to talk about prospects. Most of the NHL Network just recaps the 1st round over and over again.

If I was doing Day 2 coverage I would create a board of 50 guys to look for getting drafted and focus on that. Chances are 35+ of those guys will be gone by the end of the 3rd round but at least those last 15 guys gives your coverage some focus(beyond how the leafs drafted on day 1)

So does that mean that next we'll have someone like Damien Cox doing draft analysis instead of Bob McKenzie?

I wouldn't be surprised if they brought in special guests like Gare Joyce for the draft. Hopefully NBC Sports decides to do it's own coverage of the Draft I might watch that instead

My guess is somebody will stream it but as of now I have no clue who. Best to come here a half an hour before the draft somebody is bound to post a link

Yeah, never did like the NHL Network coverage of the draft. Seems like they only focus on 1 or 2 picks and not the actual person being selected from Round 2 to 7.

Would you settle for seeing what joe blow from Waterloo has to say on twitter for two days?

I hate that social media garbage has taken over these events. By all means show what media and players are saying, but leave the annoying fan tweets out of it. 2/3 of the screen is taken up by this crap.

Couldn't agree more about those tweets. One of the most annoying developments in the media world these past years.

It's one thing to go to a message board and check out what fans have to say about it, but to have this stuff shoved down your throat on TV, especially when so many people try to be clever and funny when they are neither.

If they would at least make it optional. You know if you could just hide those twitter bands with a push of a button on your remote. I'm sure the technology is available by now.

Yep, it's ****in' brutal. It's so damn distracting to boot. I'm trying to watch the event and my eyes keep gravitating to the tweets even though I don't want to read them. If they are going to keep that crap, at least you know, keep putting new tweets on. At the end of day two, it'll be the same damn tweets I didn't want to read at the start of day one.

Chilling thought...And Cox is usually on their Friday Night Hockey panel.

And I agree, TSN really screwed up posting tweets from various nobodies over the last 3 drafts (this started in 2011).
