NHL's New Blogger Policy in Place
One suggestion that was made included a policy change that would give those teams more control over access to their locker room on the road. Well, in the end, that's kind of what's happened.
Starting this season, "bloggers" will only have access to the home locker room unless they make prior arrangements with the visiting team (and considering some of the positions taken by teams like Edmonton and the New York Rangers, that doesn't sound like it's going to be an easy proposition in some cases). Blogger credentials are clearly labeled with a different color from that of the "mainstream" media (of which websites like FanHouse and Yahoo! Sports appear to be considered).
There's really not much left to be said that hasn't already been said on the subject (Wyshynski's original report is a must-read, and makes plenty of great points). Certain teams are going to be aware of the current trends and the advantages of new media and be willing to work with them, and others ... well, simply won't.
