this would seem to be your issue then, no?

USA would be a great fit for the NHL. Maybe they could build a new tradition in the states of the NHL saturday night hockey on USA Network like we have here of hockey on CBC. Who knows maybe USA and CBC could work together like TSN and NBC do

$ inflation and Sports TV money inflation are not the same thing.

The $120 million deal from ESPN compared to the other sports was light years ahead of where we are now:

When the NHL got it's $120 mil deal, MLB was getting $160 mil (two $80 million contracts).
Now the NHL is getting $200 mil while MLB is getting $1.55 billion per year.

Obviously, the NHL is more competitive when you factor in the Canada TV deals, but you get the idea.

Would be nice to see the NHL on another US network, would grow the game so much in the U.S. to see another well-known network like USA broadcasting hockey games. A national NHL game of the week in the US during a weeknight would help the NHL a lot.

seems pretty simple. nbc will pay more for exclusivity over a certain period of time. if the nhl was being offered more money total by multiple broadcasters, I'm quite certain they would have went down that route.

its always funny to read people basically suggesting that nhl didn't think of something as obvious as multiple tv partners. you make the best deal available to you at the time.

the situation in canada is much different where the nhl is in the drivers seat, and can probably carve up the national package the ways between bell, cbc, and rogers. the market in the US is the exact opposite. perhaps after a few years of pulling viewers they will be in a position to negotiate with multiple tv partners in the US.

NBCSN's strategy, if rumors about their bid for the next MLS deal are accurate, seems to be finding properties with large niche followings and overpaying in exchange for exclusive rights. I kind of doubt that there is any provision in the deal that would allow the NHL to find a second TV partner, no idea where that rumor came from.

Or in the case of MLS, small niche followings.
