The reason that hockey sucks in American, is because of crappy marketing and over-expansion of the league by that basketball-crazed dumbass, Bettman. The NHL's new TV deal with NBC is so damn funny, 18 nationally televised games over the course of 2 years for what?? 170+ MILLION.
Wanna solve this impasse???
Fire Bettman, fire Goodenow.
Hire Gretzky for Commish.
