NBC-Versus Rumored to Keep NHL TV Deal

It appears that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman did what he does best and wrangled $200 million a year for ten years out of the newly merged NBC/Versus conglomerate for an exclusive deal. If you complain that it is not enough, you need to realize that the last deal was worth zero coming out of the lockout.

John Ourund at Sports Business Daily has details on the deal and Adrian Dater has a good perspective piece on what it means to the league.

We will have the release once it comes out after the Bettman-Dick Ebersol presser at Noon CDT today.

More Later...
