However, Outdoor Life Network?! So is hockey now ranked above or below Bass Fishing on the American sport charts? Are we going to have to surf to channel 153 to find this on local cable now? This doesnt exactly burnish the image of Hockey still being a top 4 sport (which it clearly isnt anyway).
I believe I have read that OLN could be preparing to be relaunched. If so, the NHL maybe the cornerstone of a new sports network. I hope they do relaunch and they put a major whammy on ESPN and their hotdog eating-lawn bowling-wnba-kite flying B.S. Perhaps in a perfect universe, while Jim Rome is burning, ESPN will burn down with his idiot opinions.
