I'm betting that a new deal will be negotiated, with less money coming the way of the NHL. Not great, but not a disaster either.

I would like to think that this would be a useful bargaining chip in the negotiations, but I'm skeptical.
Struth mate, I hope you're right on that one. As far as hockey is concerned, our only hope is through ESPN as we don't carry any of the games that are screened elsewhere.

At least what you say makes sense, so it's all good..

Of course, living in Canada, its easy for me to say the ESPN thing is no big deal. Hopefully for your sake- and the sake of millions of others, they sort it out.
