Bettman Loves Canada

from the CP via TSN,
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, proclaiming the new hockey season a ''remarkable'' story after the bitter year-long lockout, said Friday a more fluid, action-packed game is paying off. Five weeks in, attendance is strong in most markets with five per cent more fans and television ratings are up, especially in Canada. Still, there are trouble spots, including low ratings for hockey on the Outdoor Life Network in the United States. The Washington Capitals have had dismal crowds. The Buffalo Sabres and the New Jersey Devils have had a lot of empty seats.
