I agree with you that the NHL network is doing a poor job with the games. However I dont agree that it is their responsability to provide HNIC. It should be on Center Ice, in HD!!! That is where the real problem is. No matter how good the broadcasters are in HNIC, I will never believe that making good ol America watch the Toronto Leafs or Montreal Canadiens will make new fans. NHL Network US should focus on good US games and sometimes of course US-CA games. My blame for the lack of HNIC HD goes to Center Ice.
