Versus just opened a brand new season and started right off with some new enhancements for viewers. For instance during the studio analysis portion of the broadcast, they are implementing a new "puck tracking" system. Before you groan, no this is not like the old "glow puck" used by Fox Sports back in the 90's. This is called "digitalized tracking".
Most importantly, it's not going to be used during game play.
Here is a link to a recent press release announcing the start of a new season which has more information.
While some fans continue to long for ESPN to jump back into the hockey business, Versus has worked very hard to improve coverage and expand viewership. They have been growing each year and plan continued growth.
