T.V

Why does the Blackhawks not show any games on t.v? If they show this draft on t.v then maybe some will care that the Blackhawks have the #1 pick. Not to be rude or anything does anyone in Chicago, even know that the blackhawks have the #1 pick.

Round 1 is broadcast on VS. Why do the Hawks need to broadcast it as well?

Also, nobody knows that the Hawks have the #1 pick...

That about says it.

What really pisses me off, (and i am not even a Hawks fans, but live in the area) is that even with the center ice pkg, they blackout the away teams feed also. Apparently Wirtz has this premonition that "if you don't show it, They will Come." Hasn't worked, he has also stated that it costs too much to produce the TV feed and they lose money on it. Hence the nickname "Dollar" Bill

I think the NHL should step in on this. If Wirtz won't broadcast the games, i have to guess that the NHL can negotiate a contract with comcast/FSN or someone to get the gams on TV.

Under the "for the Betterment of the Game" Clause

Especially now that the Hawks have some good young talent coming up. Just a shame this storied franchise is being buried in the ground!

CAN WIRTZ!!!!!!

About the first pick, too bad it is a weak year and not next year. Knowing the Wirtz though, he would have had managment bypass Tavares anyways, too much publicity!!...LOL
