-The National Hockey League, which has a two-year rights agreement with OLN, is a loser. Without NFL games, OLN's growth will continue at a slow pace. The dream is over for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman; NHL telecasts won't be making rapid inroads on cable.- William Houston of the Globe and Mail
-They didn't win it," said Jagr, after losing last night to Philadelphia. "We lost it."
-Gary Bettman insists that his obstruction-crackdown crusade won’t falter in the homestretch.
“Stephen Walkom, our chief of officiating, has guaranteed it,” The Commish asserts. “What makes this time different is 1) We have better competitive balance of the new economic system; 2) As part of our partnership, we’ve had a complete buy-in and some contributions by the players and; 3) Everybody is overwhelmingly pleased with the results. That’s a form of positive reinforcement.”- from Stan Fischler of MSG Network
