Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur says the N.H.L. is not taking full advantage of Sidney Crosby's debut. When Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins' 18-year-old phenomenon, makes his much-anticipated debut against the Devils at Continental Arena on Wednesday night, the league's new cable television partner, OLN, will be showing the Rangers-Flyers game at Philadelphia instead. Brodeur, who will be facing Crosby, Mario Lemieux and the revamped Penguins, says the league and the television network are making a mistake. Brodeur said Tuesday that the league erred by having all 30 teams play on opening night rather than showcasing Crosby's debut in an attempt to increase interest in the N.H.L.'s return. "That's what it should have been," he said. "It would have been easy to do. But OLN starts with Flyers-Rangers. Sidney Crosby is the guy you want to market. He's the new, upcoming guy."
