Ge wiz, Mostly Pittsburgh (6) and Detroit(6) on the schedule. Some teams only twice.
I would hope they consider changing that. It seems like Pittsburgh and Detroit are always featured in this style of programming. For example, Pittsburgh seemed to be on 94 in HD 80% of the time last year. And when NBC does it's Sunday coverages - it always seems to be Detroit, Pittsburgh, The Devils, Dallas, and CO.
Don't get me wrong, watching Crosby, Malkin, and Stahl is a good thing, but with the proliferation of channel choices now, the NHL in conjunction with D* should work to showcase other teams to help grow support for the entire league - not just the teams that have a few top names players.
The NHL is a different sport and has a different style of fan base than that of say the NFL - where the Cowboys, Giants, and Indy seem to get a lot of prime time coverage. IMO the NHL's audience has a greater capacity to value teams and matchups beyond they're hometown or "favorite team.
