Adding on to what Fletch said, what do you think had more of an affect on baseball's popularity growth in the laye 90s? McGwire-Sosa or the Yankees resurgence? If its not the latter, its very very close.
If there's a chance the Rangers are going to win the cup, then you have the attention of the largest market in the country. And no advertiser is going to fail to notice that. And no network is going to fail to notice when the advertisers are interested.
Also, something that the NHL is banking on is HD TV becoming more prevalent, which it will. Hockey on HD makes more of a difference than any other sport.
