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.

US National deal is weak. NHL is unreliable.
