ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the National Hockey League. With ownership and the National Hockey League Players Association deeply entrenched in their positions over salaries, national carrier ESPN and regional sports networks will be forced to scramble their schedules in the months ahead. Over the past decade, the league said the average player salary had risen to $1.8 million, with 75% of revenue allotted to player costs. One of the key funding issues for the low-rated NHL is national TV contracts. NBC's new no-rights deal calls for the sharing of ad dollars after it recovers its production costs.
