The problem is, I like many relocates don't give a rats ass about the local southern team. Many hold true to their original team up north.

By doing their own network they can control how their own product is presented and they dictate their own schedule in broadcasting their games. They should have a midweek regional game and a national saturday night game. Hockey Night in Canada and MSG do the best broadcasts and they shoud tap into those two production teams to do a 1st class production. Have 24/7, have college and AHL games, etc. Do to hockey what Fox has done for soccer.
