    This is going to be a ratings nightmare

    I love it!

    Washington is the biggest market left. LMAO!!!!!

    They are going to be hard selling the SHIT out of the Vegas story to get people to watch. Winnipeg is going to be getting hosed by the zebras.

    You think they are bad now...wait until Tampa plays Winnipeg in the finals!!

    It will EASILY be the lowest rated finals in modern history.

    I can’t think the NHL cares about ratings much anymore. Even with big markets or stars in they get terrible ratings.

    I wonder what would be the highest rated finals? Is it as easy as saying NY and LA ? Or maybe CHI and NY?

    I would bet that the flyers still bring in good ratings nationally no matter their opponent in a SCF

    IIRC, Philly vs. Chicago in 2010 was the highest rated finals of this century.

    Expansion fees keep the league alive while at the same time watering down talent and contributing to it's long term death. And I guess Canada is still interested no matter what. Just my guess.

    agree. have contended for years the NHL is a pyramid scheme based on expansion fees and doesn't care about ratings. when was the last time they talked about them? seems like years. it's a shame too as i watch a good part of that game last night and it was a great game. these two teams hate each other from the jump. DC/Vegas would get passible ratings in my opinion, any iteration other than that will as potter said be a horror show.

    oh, as an aside, watching the PGA yesterday don't recall seeing more than a brief mention or two of the game last night. if pittsburgh had been in it it would have been vomitus.

    ocean is right-they don't care.....

    Winnipeg v. Washington would actually be a hell of a Cup Final.
