The Athletic link: If you're an NHL fan with Bally Sports or AT&T SportsNet, you're OK — for now
QuoteLocal broadcasts for the 14 NHL teams caught up in turmoil involving the futures of their respect regional sports channels aren't going anywhere, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday.
The plan, Bettman said at the NHL's general manager meetings, is for the 12 franchises partnered with Bally Sport Regional Networks, as well as the two partnered with AT&T SportsNet, to air the remainder of their games as scheduled on their current channels. Local broadcasts are produced and aired through the first round of the playoffs.
"Obviously, it's not inexpensive to run sports channels or (Diamond) wouldn't be in the situation that they're in. But in a combination of linear carriage and streaming, we can get the games out there," Bettman said. "And listen, we're in an era where the business model is evolving for local distribution of games in all the sports, and that's something we're going to have to address not just on a short-term basis, but on the long-term. And we will. We're prepared to do that."
"(AT&T SportsNet is) going to continue to carry the games (through the end of teams' seasons)," Bettman said. "As I said (regarding) any of the regionals, we believe based on everything we've been told — and we're in constant dialogue — that our games certainly through this regular season will be taken care of. And then once we get to the playoffs, there's national distribution."

The short term panic seems to be over as the NHL said in February they expected it would be.
As of February, the NHL said they had received most of the RSN $ for this season.
The national distribution of NHL playoff games doesn't rely on these RSNs.
So the NHL have until next season to sort out what they're going to do.
They can work out a deal in the Chapter 11.
They can work something out with ESPN. They've lined up options.
I still do not think this is as bad for the NHL as some were making it out to be.

I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.
