Versus saved NHL when nobody wanted it. I personally think Versus does a great job with its studio show compared to Brett Hull and his negativity on the Ducks. Those guys know hockey and their insight is great IMO.
NBC will get the ratings up but what do they expect when they have some Canadian team playing the much traditional hockey club of the Ducks? I mean, a team from Canada just isnt going to cut it. They needed a fresh team like the Tampa Bay or the Panthers. (Look up sarcasm )
