    Do you believe if ESPN started covering the NHL again it would help the popularity of the sport in the United States?

    Hockey will never be as popular in the states as baseball, football, or basketball, but I do think ESPN would help it grow, possibly back to the level it was in the early-mid 1990's. ESPN is good at marketing its sports. All the extra exposure on SportsCenter would help a lot. And their game telecasts are way better than Versus or NBC.
