I still see they're having NHL shows on the radio daily with nothing to talk about. They even waste times "Ranking Teams" which is the biggest waste of time possible. Once a new CBA deal is signed, there will be tons of movement and many teams won't look the same.
Frankly, it looks kind of sad and pathetic.
They could still report the CBA discussions and cover prospect movement/teams, and other leagues without the sensationalism. You know...that thing called journalistic integrity. It's all but eroded....the back and forth petulance of the league and the PA just facilitates media's tendency to overreact.
