Epic ESPN Hockey Fail

Updated, 2:28 p.m.:
As some of you have mentioned maybe ESPN was referencing when the Rangers brought Messier back in 2000. But to me that would be an even bigger fail as obviously that ended up being a complete and utter disaster. Plus I feel the Gaborik signing is much bigger than the 2000 Messier signing.

Nick Q. over at New York Sports Today provides another example of hockey fail by ESPN…

“ESPN, who has constantly shown an anti-NHL bias in their daily coverage of the sports world, decided to ask Rangers fans if the Brad Richards signing was the biggest since Mark Messier’s signing. The problem is Mark Messier was never signed by the Rangers. The Captain was traded in 1991 (by none other than Glen Sather) from the Oilers to the Blueshirts for Louie DeBrusk, Bernie Nicholls, and Steven Rice. This is not only basic Rangers knowledge, but it’s basic hockey knowledge. I would give them a pass, but this was ESPN New York. Not knowing how the biggest name in Rangers history was acquired is unacceptable for anyone covering New York sports.”

…the worldwide leader in sports? Yeah, I don’t think so.

…despite their endless shunning of the NHL, I’d still like to see them get the television rights. Nothing better than the old school ESPN hockey commercials. Like this classic with Brendan Shanahan.
