The teams involved had a bit to do with the bad rating last year.

LA has a big market, but isn't exposed to the casual fan nearly enough (Which is the NHL's own damn fault) and NJ isn't big to the casual fan either.

Plus I think NYR getting ousted by NJ the round before kinda hurt the local market for NJ too.

If the NHL plays their cards right, they should bounce back. Chicago and Detroit aren't making a trip to the Finals within the next two years, so it's about time the league start putting some muscle behind St. Louis and the Kings. (Who I think have a great chance at going back to the Finals again)
