Allan Walsh, lawyer, player agent and Twitter aficionado, has been keeping tabs on various aspects of the NHL lockout. On Oct. 3, he said something strange on his Twitter.
“NHL Press Release on 2011-12 revenues curiously deleted from http://NHL.com,”
I had to see if this was true. I tested this for myself by simply typing “NHL revenues 2010-11 press release” into Google. The first result was the press release from nhl.com. But, change the years to 2011-12 and suddenly things change. The Wikipedia page for John Collins, the league’s chief operating officer, becomes the first result, as well as news articles about revenues. But there is no first-page result, let alone first overall result, from nhl.com like there was for 2010-11.
