Ratings for the nhl will never get that good, no matter the coverage it gets. Hockey is to much of a live sport then a tv sport, meaning hockey is just not as fun to watch on the tv as football is. Football you can go to the wash room and only miss maybe 1 or 2 plays (most likely not even miss a 1st down play), hockey you go to the bathroom and you can and most likely will miss something like a goal, fight, huge hit.

Even in canada the tv ratings are good, but still with how much canada loves hockey they should be much better. And in canada every single resident who owns a tv and basic cable gets the 3 main stations that play hockey, cbc, tsn, sportsnet (east,west,south,north).

It is why hockey depends on there fans to actually come to the live games, it is why hockey doesnt get a massive tv contract even though games are played 7 days a week.
