I found it fascinating that Bill Wirtz KNEW not televising home games was wrong but he claimed that his farther (Arthur) made him promise he would not do it.

Ratings in Boston are also sky high this season.

The NHL will never surpass the NBA on a national level but in many head to head local markets hockey wins and in a few markets the NHL drove the NBA out ( Buffalo - St. Louis for example)

Bottom line is there is no fan backlash from the lockout in the hardcore hockey markets in the US.
Proof please.
Also can somebody post NBA ratings per market so we can have a comparison?

Easily true. The Bruins were completely irrelevant until game 6 of the 2008 series.
