this whole 'not owned by the NHL but by another company and cable company' crap is just a lame excuse.
You have two possibilities, the NHL cuts in demand a check for the distribution of content it owns the rights to, or the NHL offers free ( or reduced cost) gamecenter live and cuts no one a check. Now factor into this the increase in the number of people who will take the NHL up on their offer simply because its free ( people who would have not have bought it at full price), plus you would have to negotiate it with tons of cable companies, I dont know if in demand does it for rogers or the canadian cable companies or not.

Im fine with either, but I dont think that either will happen and if one does its far likelier to be GCL than CI.
