4. Same as 3.
5. It adds legitimacy to another league.

The first game will feature, among others: McDonagh, Kovalchuk, Hedman, E. Kane, Pavelski, Rinne, etc... Will it help the growth of the other league when hockey fans in NY become aware there are more and more top NHLers playing on certain teams? How many of those fans would have even bothered finding out without this initiative?
