I am canceling NHL Network and writing a letter to their chief creative director. I can c and p the letter here, but basically I'm disgusted and offended as a fan of a western team to turn on NHL On the Fly and see 30 minutes of Sens/Pens coverage when they played yesterday and 10 minutes of Kings/Sharks when they played a pivotal game five the day of. It's totally absurd and the NHL Network's clear and utter bias toward covering traditional hockey markets over west coast teams has gone on for too long.
The league claims they want to grow the game in non traditional cities, yet their primary television vehicle blatantly ignores those same markets.
Its fine if you want to yammer on about Crosby for a half an hour - he's the face of the league; I get that. But it has reached new levels of absurdity. I've just had enough.
