There is no demand for anything more then 300m yr!
How do you figure that? NBC will be forking out 200m for the next decade, and TSN and CBC will have new deals in the next couple of years. That alone will put the NHL over your 300m a yr plateau.
Edit. And that's on the national level. What about the local level? There's probably another 3-400m in local deals in the league. Now you're somewhere in the 6-700m range if you tally it all up. I know it's merely a drop in the bucket when you compare it to what the others are getting... but you have to start somewhere, and the NHL didn't really have a product that was capable of getting this until 05.
I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
