The NHL would not make any money off of showing the commercials and it takes less bandwidth to show an NHL ad picture than to broadcast commercials.
I understand that, but I'm not saying they'd have to play the network's commercials. Youtube plays commercials, and so do a lot of other online video sites.

Not saying I want commercials on GCL, just wondering why they don't do it since they could make money off of it.
