[QUOTE=du5566;56875657][QUOTE=BradD;56875543]Do you have any other team to cut that isn't a contender? I am looking at the list and every other team is a contender or is growing profits. You could maybe cut Buffalo or St. Louis. I understand Minnesota is hockey country but the Wild are most certainly not.
The NHL is not going to cut Minn or any team for that matter. Teams in all/most major North American TV markets = big TV contracts = big revenue = better NHL for everyone.
How many wild games did nbcsn air last year ? The local deals are just that local, and I don't see the value of having the wild as a cornerstone of the TV deal if they can always get more eyes showing the new teams along with Pitt and Chicago.
