SportsCenter just doesn’t cut it

According to Deadspin, since January 7 the NHL has made up 3.3 percent of all SportsCenter content. Three point three percent? I am sure this number will go up in the playoffs, but only marginally. Perhaps this is the reason why so few people care about the NHL in this country.
The basic problem is that the program favors opinionated analysis and speculation over hard journalism and substantial highlights. They have nine hours to cover sports and they can’t devote more than 20 seconds to a given highlight.
I hate to say it, but the show that I have loved for most of my childhood and adult life just doesn’t do it for me anymore.
