Do other sporting events factor into NHL scheduling?

I was asked this question today here by someone talking about the new Convention center. He wondered if the NHL factors in other sports teams (like the NFL) visiting a city when it schedules a team for a visiting game. For example: If the Lions were playing on a Sunday here at LP field, does the league office consider having DRW here for a Saturday night game? Or the Bears/Blackhawks?

You get the idea-- could be great synergy from a business perspective in markets that are not a guaranteed sellout (like Nashville, Carolina, maybe NYI?) to book them in on a date when another regional sports team in going to be there also.

Anybody know if this comes into play?

It's possible. I remember one year we played the Bruins at home on Saturday night and the Pats at home on Sunday. This year we hosted Buffalo on Saturday and the Titans played at Buffalo on Sunday. While probably not on purpose, a neat little scheduling quirk.

I remember playing the Penguins the same weekend as a Titans/Steelers game recently as well.

It's really coincidence more than anything. The NFL doesn't need to schedule with the NHL, but the NHL sure wouldn't mind it.
