MSG Sues NHL for Bad Marketing

From the “both sides of the mouth department”:

Dolan believes the Rangers do a far better job selling their product in all of its permutations than the league ever could. Said Dolan, “we believe that the league continues to squander opportunities to improve our business and solidify and grow our fan base.” He pulled out some interesting numbers to back his case, recounting how some 93 per cent of the NHL overall revenue (up from 91 per cent before the lockout) is generated by the teams, with only 7 per cent generated by the league.

Jim’s helping “the NHL grow our fan base” by not carrying the NHL Center Ice package for the 2007-2008 season on his Cablevision system. Unreal. Hat tip to the folks at HockeyNation.
