Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,
The NHL has moved the All-Star game from a Sunday to a Wednesday. It’ll be the first time since 1989 that the game is played on a weekday. And it’s a smart move.
The idea of All-Star Sunday was always a good one, but it never translated into ratings or attention. A spokesman for the league says the move was made in part to get a prime time slot where ratings are better. The only problem is—and, I know, this was supposed to be complimentary and I’m sliding back into my routine, but … the only problem is, the game isn’t prime time on NBC, it’s prime time on Versus. Unfortunately, it’ll be impossible to know what affects the ratings most.
