Oilers Pull Plug on Blogger

Here's one bloggers account from Covered in Oil about the team revoking his press pass.

Amazing how there's teams in the NHL embracing bloggers (Islanders, Capitals), yet many still turning the cold shoulder.

UPDATE: Many in the blogosphere have reacted, but I think this Puck Daddy piece, penned by CBC's Elliotte Friedman is quite solid.

Ballhype: hype it up!

Why do NHL teams continue to be threatened by bloggers? With coverage dwindling in the mainstream media, one would think that they would be happy to have bloggers who not only want to cover the sport, but their respective team as well.

When will things change?

I don't think coverage is dwindling in a place like Edmonton.
