Unfortunately, the NHL is marketing the sport in Europe while they should be trying to market it better in the states, where the majority of NHL teams are actually located. There's a reason why ESPN dropped the sport and it's on a relatively unknown station (Versus) and the tv ratings were behind the World Poker Championship at one point.

IMO, work on building the NHL's reputation in the states first, then worry about Europe. It's a dumb idea and one that I'm sure the players are not crazy about. There have already been complaints and I can't say that I blame them for complaining.
