NBA = rich TV contract, working under salary cap, consistent reffing, higher % of fans filling the seats, wider popularity and STARS SHINE in the NBA.

NHL = poor TV contract, no salary cap, inconsistent refs, higher % of empty seats in a gate driven league, overpaid players compared to other sports, fans-players-coaches all complain they no longer know which infractions will be called and rely on being suprised either way on almost every call and STARS are hidden under a barrage of interference and numerous other infractions that supports and helps checkers nullify offensive players and does not allow stars to be stars.
