TV Ratings Will Never Have An Impact

from Sports Illustrated,
There has been much chatter in sporting circles about the NHL's impending Stanley Cup finals Armageddon. The basic argument is that none of the four teams left in the tournament can draw flies, let alone eyeballs, to TV screens across the United States, where the majority of franchises dwell; thus The New NHL is destined to shake hands with famine, plague, boils, locusts and fiery destruction.... Thus the stark bottom line remains: The only way the NHL will ever garner boffo TV ratings coast-to-coast is if it employs nude female referees, the players are allowed to use handguns, Oprah Winfrey tends goal and Gary Bettman delivers free beer right to your door.
