As for VS, I take them over ESPN. It's clear ESPN doesn't take hockey seriously or care about it, and I'm willing to bet their coverage would be worse than VS.
ESPN takes hockey seriously. A bunch of their main people are actual hockey fans (not just kinda sorta). Linda Cohn used to play goalie, for example. ESPN, however, has a lot more going for it than VS and they put on the TV what makes them the most money.
