There are a few years left, but I just don't see NBC renewing.  Or if they do it will be for around 33% less.  But Gary should be retired by then, so who knows

We are witnessing the manipulating scumbag of all scumbags the likes of which only comes along once in a very long while.


Don't underestimate the owners, they probably have another lawyer being groomed right now that will take the puck and keep doing the same thing.

Paydays from the TV side of things.  But really, it still needs to be spelled out for you.

Once the contract is up and they see ratings are down then maybe they will do business differently, but the track records doesn't seem so. 

But if all the teams from  Canada are supporting the crap ones then why those owners keep doing it.

Hmmmmmm....

Oh yeah changes from year to year for sure. I imagine that top 5 is pretty solid year after year though. Sans a new team of course. I remember when the Sharks joined the league, that was a really sharp jersey. Was quite popular for a good number of years.

I tell ya, the most comments I get now is when I wear my throwback jerseys. Espicially Quebec and Hartford. This year the Canes are releasing some Hartford merch again

 Jarome Iginla closed his 20-year NHL career in the city where he was the face of the franchise.

The 41-year-old winger made his retirement official Monday in Calgary, where he spent 16 seasons with the Flames.

Iginla entertained a packed news conference at Scotiabank Saddledome with humorous stories about his career and teammates.

He's the Flames' all-time leader in goals with 525. The captain for his last decade in Calgary also scored the most points and played the most games.

While a Stanley Cup eluded the likely Hall of Famer during his career, he was a dominant power forward in the NHL.

He assisted on one of the most famous goals in Canadian hockey history.

Iginla set up Sidney Crosby for the overtime winner in the final of the Olympic men's hockey tournament in Vancouver in 2010.

I actually like this, good to know the NHL won't actually fight it.

Those are some good pro Flyer fan articles, but is this is what I was looking for.  Should of guessed Vegas would be up there, but was surprised the Rangers topped the list

It did somewhat, the problem is the bottom feeder teams that have owners who never want to compete.  Just put a team on the ice to make a profit.
