they said that rangers - sabres game 3 had a lower TV rating than the WNBA??

that's incredible. That lockout really hurt the NHL. Bettman needs to go.

I'm surprised too cause that game was on NBC. I guess the 2:30 start must have hurt the ratings. I think the thing that really hurt the NHL was putting it on Versus, since most people do not get Versus, and the league cannot market out of town players.

The problem is that the average guy doesn't even know that Versus is an actual channel.

Now I'm sitting here on the couch watching this exciting Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 on Versus in HD and it's incredible. Unfortunately, there is a STANLEY CUP FINALS game on Versus (and there will be another until NBC takes over for game 3).

what channel is Versus. I don't think I get it.

NHL needs better marketing. They have the nastiest rivalries in sports, their games should market themselves. Idiots.

EXactly!!!! up at school I didn't get versus, so I was forced to stream the game off the CBC's website (for the devs series). I mean yeah the game looked great in HD tonight, but with limited national exposure Versues is going to struggle to regain Hockey fans patience....

What I don't get is that ESPN owns TSN; don't you think they could do something like simulcast their hockey coverage on ESPN2 or something like that?

Bettman needs to go back to being the Court Jester for David Stern. It's ridiculous how much the game has been damaged under him. Get somebody in there who knows about hockey and marketing!
