this time its totally different. there's been zero effort to sell nhl hockey anywhere as if its an accepted fact that the nhl is not playing this season.
No I didn't miss your point. You're making a wild assumption that the season is a forgone conclusion at this point, one sign being no center ice advertising or fees, because there's no season as of yet. Couldn't be more wrong as of today.
