Sad to see, but not terribly surprising considering the history of ESPN and the sport of ice hockey.

I know a lot of guys on this board will tell us to forget about ESPN but it nevertheless bothers me because for casual sports fans ESPN is THE place to go. They are in many ways the taste-makers for many sports fans and when they see them treat hockey like it barely exists.

Now, the solution to this is to either craw back to the ESPN thrown and beg for coverage. The other option is to grow NBC Sports and the NHL Network as a viable alternative to the"world-wide leader in sports."

Now that we have a home in the NBC Sports network we need to go with it and hockey will grow through it. And I think eventually adding the Frozen Four will be a great thing!
