They communicated with their fans when to expect it. Now you'd think the NHL would jump on that and try and crank their schedule out earlier in hopes that some fans of both leagues will plan on the NHL first since their schedule is out first. But of course that would require competent management from the NHL office.
Has the NBA considering shutting down their season for a few weeks so their players can play in the Olympics? Secondly, this is a very ridiculous argument. People are going to plan for NHL or NBA against the other over whose schedule is out first? NHL schedule is out first every year. Has that helped the NHL put a dent in the NBA's popularity?
