Ray Ferraro of ESPN & TSN on NHL broadcasting, disputes, fan feedback, the rulebook and a magical time with the New York Islanders.

On the premiere episode of Hockey Press Pass, Ray Ferraro of ESPN and TSN discusses his start on TV (while still playing in the NHL), approach to analyzing games, views on the state of the league, “feedback” from players and executives – including a hallway confrontation with a chippy player – and much more. Later on, Ray and Chris talk about his memorable time with Al Arbour and the Islanders and the team’s run in the 1993 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The show closes with Chris responding to a fan’s question about lessons learned in his tenure as Islanders PR VP. Presented by InStat Hockey.
