I'd love to see someone do this for hockey (and have considered it, although my workload would have to be much lower).
Too many cultural differences may get in the way for hockey. Baseball had the New York and east coast media that was hype driven due to the high concentration of newspapers.

Hockey would have to consider the cross Canada cultural differences, the English and French polarities, the novelty factor entering the US markets plus the various European perspectives.

A daunting task.
