NHL launching Social Network CONNECT

It's the kind of idea that probably should have happen sooner - the NHL is creating a social network in the vision of MySpace for communities to form around groups of people that already are extremely pationate about something (the sport in general, their team, etc).  The community will be called Connect; you can see a preview here.  ESPN, MLB, the NBA, there is no reason not to tap into this market, since their fan base is already committed to the point of fanaticism, and would a dedicated community would spread like wildfire.
