I doubt the NHL would let Outdoor Network televise Avs games on a national telecast. It would probably remain regional and go to the same markets that Altitude currently serves. To broadcast it nationally would compete with their other agreements and it would start a NHL v Kroenke battle. That being said, if I was Kroenke I would initiate the battle because I’m guessing at least 50% of the viewers of Outdoor come from this region of the country (the other 50% in SE USA and maybe even some in Canada).

Going out on a limb, Kroenke probably wants to bring soccer to the channel
Going out on a really long limb, Kroenke wants to bid on the whole NHL package next time around. How crazy would that be, considering he doesn’t really give a crap about the team he actually owns?
