Few U.S. Newspapers to Cover NHL Finals

I spoke to William Houston of the Toronto Globe and Mail about this subject on Tuesday. Here's what he wrote.

Cutbacks in the newsrooms, slashed budgets and layoffs are certainly a big part of the problem. Hockey ranks low on the pecking order. And, if it's between spending money on the World Series or NHL final, the choice is not difficult.
But writers and editors point to other issues, starting with Senators-Ducks, which is a small-market matchup.

Can't say I'm surprised. But as a person who enjoys watching, reading and writing about hockey, it's certainly disappointing.
