It's been something I've been thinking about, what are some things the NFL does that the NHL should do?
Obviously the reason I look at the NFL, because as a whole the league seems to be unstoppable with Marketing (usually very good marketing) as well as TV deals and drawling interest.
Over the last 4 seasons or so the NFL has started the season with the reigning Super Bowl Champs playing a Thursday night at home, almost an offering of congratulations on a season well done.
The NHL should start it's season on National TV (Sorry Versus) with a stand alone game of the Stanley Cup Champ opening up at home, raising the banner against a division rival. Have the cup in the house, an nice ceremony, raise the Stanley Cup Champions banner and drop the puck on the new NHL season.
Any other thoughts?
