Or is the problem is that the NHL isn't popular on ESPN is because they don't cover it? The typical ESPN viewer probably have no idea that the NHL exists.
I no longer watch it at home unless Monday Night Football is on. Sportscenter covers 10 topics (Lakers, Kobe, Lebron, Yankees/Sox rivalry, Tombrady, the NFL, NCAA, any relevant suspension, a rehash of things shown earlier, and the top 10
First Take is a rehash of Sportscenter, except for two horses' (rear ends) yelling at each other without making a single point.
Ditto PTI (except Cowlishaw who tries to mention the NHL)
Ditto Around The Horn.
There are a few times when it's on at work and I notice when the NHL is covered. Usually it's when Levy or Bucci is hosting Sportscenter and they're cramming in some news into a 15 second piece that's closing the show.
