A hard check
Help me out with this. ESPN has opted not to pick up NHL games for a third year. More accurately, they're opting not to continue paying $60 million in rights fees. But the NHL won't back off its price. According to one league official, "'We have no interest in further devaluing the product.'" Since this is a sport that just cancelled one season due to a strike and can't guarantee a labor settlement before the next, what product is he talking about?
