from Richard Sandomir of the New York Times,
The N.H.L. remains a league in recovery from the 2004-5 lockout and the miscalculations that led to the labor strife. So it is not surprising that it continues to struggle to rebuild its United States viewership. Nationally, for example, NBC’s regular-season average viewership of 1.34 million is but 45 percent of the 2.9 million in more glorious days on Fox 11 years ago.
“Is there a prospect for monumental growth in ratings? No,” Bill Daly, the league’s deputy commissioner, said yesterday in a telephone interview. “Do we have what we consider good growth prospects in this environment? Yes.”
