That doesn't sound right, an extra year gets tacked on if it's lost but NBC gets paid that year what they're supposedly owed now. I dunno if interest is added on or the value is adjusted due to currency values then compared to now. If inflation continues by then then obviously $200 M right now for example is worth more than it is 11 yrs from now. Actually no that's wrong too. NBC gets a free year during that 11th season, not the NHL getting a free year. So that means that the NHL will get no US TV revenue that season from my understanding but their games will be broadcast on NBC. So it's basically Bettman pushing down the problem to future Commisioner who's gonna be short of some revenue that season.

Anyone see the Koci vs Valabik fight in the KHL? Fairly good, two big players.
