New York--Could the NHL move to inflatable pucks? Reports out of the Big Apple seem to think that the league is "blown away" by the media circus that deflategate has spurred around the NFL and "wants a piece of the action." An NHL puck is one inch thick, three inches across and about six ounces in weight. A move to an inflatable puck would dramatically reduce the weight and nearly double the dimensions, but the league wants higher television ratings and more media spotlight. Controversy over the proper inflation of a puck could provide exactly that. "Maybe we could have our own deflategate," said one NHL official. "We could use the same 12.5 to 14.5 psi thing that the NFL has. Maybe [Sidney] Crosby likes them at 11.5 psi and reporters from all over the world question him about how he may have let some air out. I'm just blown away by the media hype from [deflategate]. Just blown away."

The coach's trunk appeared "empty" to the untrained eye, said one NFL official participating in the investigation of the Patriots. "But the trunk was filled with air. Air that could have come from deflated footballs. We're running many tests," said the official.
"The air from those footballs is somewhere," said one NFL coach who wanted to remain anonymous. "It didn't just disappear into thin air. It's in someone's trunk, backyard, or at the bottom of the Charles River."
