Derek, c'mon, the draft was practically at night, what 5, 6 o clock last year? It can't be more than an hour, 2 hours later.
My problem is, are Devs fans to be welcomed to the Meadowlands?
As for the NHL Network, I've heard the studios are in DC and they will launch on at least Comcast (and Potentially 25 Million homes, mind you) in April for the playoffs. It will reportedly be 90% NHL Net Canada programming, but much more game coverage than the Canadian channel.
