What kind of hockey fan wouldnt want to watch the Oilers lately? Regional fans aside, they should be one of the draws, for the reason that the article laments about. They play one of the most entertaining games in the league

Not that I care since I get all the games, but the writers of the article obviously want to see the Oilers. What kind of neutral fan wouldnt want to watch the Oilers over, say, defensive-minded St.Louis.

But NBC is obviously catering to the American fan. Which is expected. But I can see why the article is complaining about that. They are missing out on some entertaining hockey.
