To Racj2: Sorry, but I have to completely disagree with you on this one. A hockey channel with access to a live broadcast - and a prior desire to give it to us -but decides to show highlights of other games on other networks instead? That does not pass the smell test. Beside, HNIC shows highlights of the night's action between periods of the second game. The better scenario all around. Bettman is completely tone deaf attempting to sell this. Here's the question he should be forced to answer: If he thinks America wants highlights so much, why even bother showing the first HNIC game?
