It makes me think that since they're on the same network they'd do cross-promotions or something, as if the NHL hasn't had enough bad publicity lately, making it seem like the new XFL or something of that sort.

Maybe I'm way off base, but it just gets me thinking.
hell anything's gotta be better than the way espn's done the game .... plus having it on the same channel potentially as the wwe, along w/ the same general audience, could be good, it'll introduce younger fans to the game, plus provide possibly a way to what many fans hope to go back to.... the old school way of hockey... if they get to see some of the old tapes that is, either way anything is better than espn for hockey
