All Bill Daly

from Steve Lepore of Puck the Media,

Stephen Lepore: The last time the NHL got a big payday from TV networks was in 1994 and 1999.  Do you, as a league, feel the NHL is a better television attraction than in those two years.

Bill Daly: Certainly.  I think we’re valuable content, and hopefully we’re in a position to demonstrate that to people.  We’re hopeful.

SL: The ratings have been very good for the playoffs and the Stanley Cup Final.  When can you start negotiating new deals with NBC and VERSUS, and is there a period of exclusivity for them [to negotiate with]?

BD: There are periods of time in which we will explore new deals.  I’m not going to get specific with respect to when they are, but what I will say is we’re very pleased with our partners at both of those companies.  They’ve done a good job for us and hopefully we’ve done a good job for them, hopefully.  We have no desire to go anywhere else.
