    You gotta love watching a guy who loves doing what he does.

    NHL fans are already fed up with the new digital board ads

    Christine Gosselin - Yahoo Sports




    This season, the NHL has debuted digitally enhanced dasherboards (DED), which “erase and replace” the advertising found on arena rink boards with virtual ads on broadcasts. The boards sometimes resemble the traditional ones fans are accustomed to, other times, one specific advertiser takes over the boards and the entire rink lights up with its ad.

    During the broadcast of the Vancouver Canucks versus Oilers contest in Edmonton Wednesday night, fans expressed their frustration over the glitchy and distracting ads, some of which caused players on the ice to merge with advertisements on the boards.

    The technical issues were also a source of frustration during Wednesday's broadcast on TNT, Tuesday's opening slate on ESPN, and for the Global Series in Prague.

    Several fans sent a clear message to the NHL about the DED system, voicing their exasperation with the digital ads. Fans are demanding the NHL remove the digitally enhanced dasherboards, while others believe they should be used once the system is improved and free of any distracting glitches. Complaints also came from newcomers watching at home who are learning about the game. They struggled with tracking the puck as boards lit up and took attention away from the play.









    The NHL did mention how it expects there to be an adjustment period for fans, but that it’ll ultimately improve their viewing experience and help national sponsors and local advertisers. Two days into the 2022-23 season, fans are proving the league wrong.

    "Like anything else, you're going to have your people that don't like it, that think it is difficult to watch. But over time, like everything else, people will get used to it, and we're not concerned at all whatsoever," Keith Wachtel, the NHL's chief business officer and executive vice president of global partnerships, told ESPN ahead of the season.

    The project has been in the making for seven years and cost tens of millions of dollars. The first time the NHL put advertisements on its boards was back in 1981 with the Minnesota North Stars.

    They're just so bad. What's most distracting is that they don't blur like everything else in the arena when the camera and players are in motion. It's hard to watch honestly.

    My Canucks have blow a 2 goal lead to lose in all 4 of their first 4 games. Fun fact... never in NHL history going right back to the beginning of the league has any team ever started their season off losing 3 games by blowing 2-goal leads, and tonight we made it 4. Amazing.

    I just caught the tail end of the Flyers Panthers game on TV. They lost but my boys are 3 - 1 - 0 so far. Not a bad start.

    Isn't that grounds in Canada for firing a coach at that point?

    Probably. We have Bruce Boudreau right now, he only came in late last season and the team really picked it up when he joined... but this start has been abysmal and our management came in after Bruce, so they've gotta be getting close to firing him at this point since they didn't pick him anyways.

    Not sure how much longer they will be this hot, but it's fun while it's lasting.

    Yeah, I don't think the B's can play .889 hockey for the whole season but damn is it fun being a Bruins fan right now. But now the test will be coming, they have a really tough stretch coming up: @ Tampa tonite, then @ Florida, home to Carolina, home to Tampa, home to Colorado, home to Vegas, @ Colorado, @ Arizona, and @ Vegas.

    The Arizona game is the only one in there that could be considered easy. Then at the end of December, they have two games @ New Jersey and both those games are the second games of back-to-backs for Boston.

    Cale Makar just became the fastest d-man to reach 200 points. Wild, he's changing that position, I love his game.
