(Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports) Forbes released its annual NHL team valuations Tuesday. Though some team officials gripe at these, saying that they’re off for whatever reasons — the news is generally positive. First, the good according to Forbes: “Fueled by a new Canadian media deal withRogers Communicationsthat begins with the 2014-15 season, the average NHLteamvalue rose 18.6% during the past year, to an all-time high of $490 million. The 12-year, $4.6 billion agreement, which gave Rogers rights to all NHL games in Canada, including the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Final, on all of its platforms, in all languages, is worth 2.6 times more annually than the leagues previous Canadian deals.” Now the sort of bad — which we already knew … that the NHL lags behind other major North American pro sports because these television deals don’t exactly equate to what MLB, the NFL or the NBA get from their respective partners: “The Rogers media deal notwithstanding, the NHL remains the most tribal of the four major North American team sports because the NBA, NFL and MLB still have much bigger equally-shared national media and sponsorship deals.” And the mistake: “Still, 29 of the 30 teams rose in value, and the one exception, the Florida Panthers (down 21%), was due to a mistake I made last September inreportingthe sale price of the team as $240 million, which we used for our value of the team two months later. But subsequent to the publication of our 2013 valuations I learned that the true sale price was $160 million (the widely reported price of$250 millionat the time of the deal included future operating losses that should not be included in calculating an enterprise value). Had we used the correct sale price of $160 million the value of the Panthers would have increased 19%.” So for those who were chirping for the Panthers to move out of South Florida because of one game where they had miserable attendance … chill. Now that we have that all out there, nothing on their list is truly a major, super big surprise. The big market teams are worth more than the smaller market teams. Also, the falling Canadian dollar is not accounted for, since it says it uses the 93 cents per-US dollar figure from the 2013-14 season. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-team-values-zoom-upwards-per-forbes-170019501.html

Richards gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead at the 7:58 mark, beating Andersen to the glove side with a 35-foot wrist shot at the end of a 2-on-1 rush. Shaw made it 2-0 at 13:30 of the first, redirecting the puck past Andersens left leg from the low slot after Duncan Keith set him up from the left circle. By then, Chicago had an 11-1 shot advantage, and Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau called a timeout. The Blackhawks didnt get a shot on net the rest of the period, and Anaheim got on the board with Lindholms goal 3:11 before intermission. He batted in a rebound of Patrick Maroons 50-foot slap shot off Crawfords mask, just seconds after Ryan Kesler received a solid open-ice hit from Niklas Hjalmarsson that knocked him to the ice. But Kane restored the Blackhawks two-goal margin at 10:36 of the second with a one-timer from the low slot after Kris Versteeg made a between-the-legs pass to him from behind the net. Kane has scored a goal in five of his last seven games, including two game-winners. Kane scored his 10th of the season into en empty net with 59 seconds left. Chicago was 0 for 5 on the power play, ending its streak of six straight games with a power-play goal. The Ducks have yielded five goals in 47 short-handed situations over their last 15 games. The Ducks, strapped for healthy defensemen, announced during the first period that they had acquired 16-year veteran Eric Brewer from the Tampa Bay Lightning for a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. Francois Beauchemin is sidelined for a minimum of four to six weeks because of a broken finger on his right hand. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/28/kanes-fifth-goal-in-seven-games-helps-blackhawks-win/

The Blackhawks will try to improve to 4-1 on the six-game swing when they visit the Western Conference-leading Anaheim Ducks on Friday night. With the circus in town every year at this time, the Blackhawks and their fellow United Center tenants, the Chicago Bulls , wind up on the road for nearly two weeks. It isn’t the most ideal situation for any club trying to keep pace in a competitive division, but Chicago (13-8-1) has been rolling since the trip began Nov. 20. The Blackhawks had beaten Calgary and Edmonton before a 3-2 victory at Colorado on Wednesday. Jonathan Toews , Andrew Sharp and Brian Bickell scored, while Patrick Kane also pitched in with his first three-assist night since Dec. 8, 2013. Two of the three goals came on the power play, making it six straight games in which Chicago has scored with the advantage after netting two in its previous five. “We’ve been pleased and happy with it,” coach Joel Quenneville said of his power-play unit, which ranks among league leaders with 19 goals. “Two big goals got the momentum back on our side. What a hockey game that was, anybody’s hockey game.” The Blackhawks’ lone loss on the swing came at Vancouver on Sunday. The circus trip has proved successful for them in years past. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-ducks-preview-212630066–nhl.html
