The Star-Telegram did a Q & A with Dallas Stars owner Tom Hicks…
Anaheim GM Brian Burke recently said he’s still positive about the NHL’s future. Do you agree?
Given the cards we were dealt, we’re playing the hand well. We can improve, and I think we will. I think our broadcast partners will continue to do a better job, and in the long term we have to be in a position of total coverage in HD (high definition) to get the viewing of hockey to be at the level fans want to see on television. That’s the direction the world is headed. The cap right now is acting as a magnet rather than what it was intended to do. There are teams spending to it that shouldn’t be. Fewer [teams] will do it this year than last because those who did lost money. The whole idea was for it to be a midpoint, to keep a competitive balance at a high level.
