During the Olympics, most of the Country got the chance to watch Ryan Miller play for the US hockey team. It’s no secret that he is one of the best goalies and could easily be marketed in this country following his great Olympic performance. In those same Olympics, the NHL also received an added bonus when their most recognizable star, Sidney Crosby, scored the game winning goal against the US this past Sunday.
How is the NHL rewarded after the Olympics? Miller of the Sabres faces Crosby and the Penquins. This is going to be a primetime matchup on VersusHD right? Nope. Prepare for two mediocre teams… with the snooze fest battle between the Flyers and Lightning.
The NHL should have stepped in and promoted the Sabres Penquins game. It probably would have been their highest rated game of the year. Way to go NHL.
(You can see Miller and Buffalo host Washington Wednesday night on Versus HD)
