NHL.com To Stream Crosby Announcement

NHL.com posted today that they will be streaming the draft lottery on Friday at 4PM EST. This indicates to me that one of the ESPN's will not be picking up the press conference. I'm glad NHL.com stepped up on this, but there is a bigger issue here. The NHL needs to revamp their website and take a page from Major League Baseball. MLB.com is easily the best sports website out there and they do a great job with video, audio, gameday, etc. If the NHL wants to succeed, they need to embrace the internet like baseball did.

Just look at the difference. NHL.com, MLB.com
