You can read the NHL CI response a few different ways, but the NHL person never says that the issue is an MSG vs. NHL issue, does she? Let's hope the issue is worked out in a matter of days b/w the two. SD hockey just plain sucks. I emailed MSG Network and the NHL about this issue and asked that it be resolved ASAP. The lifeblood of both entities (the fans) is what suffers. Here is the response I got: "Thank you for your email. In regards to your question, at this time MSG is not making the MSG HD feed available for DirecTV and the NHL's other partners to include in NHL Center Ice. We regret the inconvenience." Confusing.. if the NHL was PO'd at MSG about this legal thing, why would MSG withhold it's HD feed? Or is MSG playing hardball with everyone because Dolan can? I would assume the NHL and MSG have a contract for putting MSG HD on NHL CI?
