This is bullshit. Way to show faith in a sport, guys. Disney just took a team almost to the Stanley Cup, and now they won't even televise the first EVER outdoor game! Assholes! I have said before and will say again that there are few things in sport better than a perfectly played hockey game, and Disney is not helping this sport expand at all. Damn!

I thought the NHL/ABC contract ran out last season? Did they sign a new TV deal or is this the last season? If this is indeed the last season this could be a sitting duck coverage and ABC doing the bare minimum with it.
I heard rumors late last season that CBS might pick up the NHL, and have some of the games being shown on SpikeTV. Which I think might be a decent fit, but on the other hand if it's not on ESPN it might even get less respect down in the States.
