The NHL is Now Bite-Sized

After watching a couple of minutes of National Hockey League television coverage on the CBC just now, I am convinced that the game was much more popular in the 1970s.

Television networks, and the NHL itself, may promote the stuffing out of the games, especially playoff games, but nothing can cover-up the fact that the league is in a slump.

Forty-five years ago NBC carried NHL games weekly on Sunday afternoons; players had personalities and the league had personality.

Hyper-cutting and flash frames in video promos signify a vacuum.
