NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has been the subject of widespread criticism from fans for his handling of hockey in desert cities and for implementing digital ads this season. Despite this, the NHL made a small improvement in its scheduling this weekend, which is long overdue.

For the first time this season, the NHL staggered games, which was a welcome change for fans.


NHL Scheduling actually staggered games for once, in 56 games played by most of the teams this season, it is mind-blowing it took them this long.


The NHL's TV deals and disregard for fans' concerns about digital ads on players' uniforms are concerning, especially with the looming bankruptcy of Bally Sports. In order to keep fans engaged and interested, the league's board of governors should prioritize creativity and listen to the concerns of fans. Staggering games for one day is not enough to address these issues.
