Posted March 23, 2018 06:30:06 The NHL is set to make a big push for a new digital-first, video-first format for its game broadcasts, but there are a few obstacles in its path.
A key one is the NHLPA, which has been locked in a protracted fight with the NHL over whether the NHL should allow its players to participate in online video games.
If the league decides to adopt such a new format, it will likely be met with some resistance from the league’s owners, who have long argued that allowing its players into online video is a form of cheating and an infringement on their rights.
Here are five key questions about the next few months as the NHL moves forward with its video-based plans.
Who’s behind the new video-game format?
The NHLPA’s current proposal would see the NHL use its existing video-sharing agreements with the major video-streaming services, but it would not have to agree to those deals, or any new ones, if the league wanted to begin playing video games with the players.
That was the proposal made to the NHL last year by the NHL and the NHL Players Association, and the league ultimately backed down.
The NHL’s current video-share agreement with Facebook and Google, the league said at the time, was not enough to meet the needs of the video-gaming market.
Now that the league is back in the negotiation, there is some doubt as to who would ultimately take on the burden of providing the NHL with a new platform.
That could include the NHL’s own league office, or the league could opt to use a partnership with a company such as Sony.
But given the NHL is expected to announce a new video platform, it is possible that the NHL could also rely on a partnership or partnership with another league.
And if that was the case, the next hurdle would be to figure out who would be responsible for maintaining the NHLPlayerVideo app.
That is a digital-only version of the NHL player’s profile and stats, which were first available on an iOS and Android app in 2015.
The app is designed to be a way for fans to easily access the NHL players’ information, such as their team and salary information.
The league’s current player stats app is currently in beta, with some players already on board.
The current app, which is available on the NHL website, shows all NHL players on the ice, and provides stats on every shot, save, shot attempt, shot blocked, and goal scored.
It is also possible that players could opt out of the app entirely, and instead have their information stored on the league.
There is also the possibility that the app could be used to collect information from fans and other players in the NHL, as well as potentially allow teams to use the data for analytics purposes.
How would the league use the video platform?
The new video format would be similar to the way the league currently uses its video games, but with the added benefit of providing its players with a way to connect to the league and communicate directly with their teammates and coaches.
The video-player app would have an “instant message” feature, which would allow players to instantly text their teammates, and send a text to a coach or GM if they are available.
Players would also be able to send a video message directly to the opposing team, a feature that is already in use with the teams’ current messaging app.
A similar feature is also in use in the league-owned Twitter app, as the league uses that platform to inform fans about upcoming games and events.
The goal is to give fans more access to the game in a way that is convenient and fun.
“We believe this new video product will be a huge benefit to the players, and fans, and will provide fans with access to important information in real time,” NHL Executive Vice President of Player Personnel Jeff Gorton said in a statement at the start of the negotiations.
The team would also get access to all of the games the players are watching and would be able get access for free.
The new platform would also allow the league to get the information and stats they need to make sure that the games are running smoothly, Gortons statement said.
“It will enable us to better support the player development pipeline and ensure that the players have the right tools to maximize their skill set,” he added.
“The team is committed to creating a platform that is both accessible and efficient for our players.”
How much money would the new platform bring to the sport?
A new video system could also bring more revenue to the hockey game than the current video platform has brought in.
The latest report from ESPN estimated that the new format would bring in around $1 billion in revenue.
That number includes the NHL paying a $300 million royalty for the use of its name, logo, and likeness for video-related products, which ESPN estimates would generate $1.5 billion.
This new revenue would not necessarily be shared evenly among all the
