Should the NHL schedule games on Christmas Day?

I listened in on this debate on some show on the NHL network (don't remember the name of the show) the other day. Anyway, one argument stated that NHL is a business and that players are entertainers and airing games on Christmas day would attract a lot of viewers... and of course the other side to this argument is that NHL players should get the day off to spend time with their family etc. So what do you think? Do you think it's fair? Would you watch a game on Christmas day? etc.

The players are still humans. I really doesn't hurt to give them a day with the family.
And I really don`t know if I had the time to watch games, most likely not.

If there ever is a game, it should be two teams within relatively close distance to each other (i.e. Devils vs Rangers) and make it at night instead of a possible 1 pm game.
