Wrong wrong and wrong.
Bettman has grown the game tremendously.
Welcome to last year....
NHL, NBC sign record-setting 10-year TV deal
Industry observers were widely impressed with the decade-length of the deal after months of reporting on the League's courting by several suitors. NBC Sports Group will pay about $200 million annually, for the length of the contract, reports SportsBusiness Daily.
PS- Canada has less citizens than the State of California alone. How exactly do you propose the NHL grow under such a small population?
