    If Van/Chi put up decent numbers in round 1 a Bos/Van Final should be ok ratings wise…..Van/TB would be brutal however. It seems an original 6 team’s involvement stabilizes the numbers

    An excellent example of how important exclusivity is. Versus lost almost half its audience from game 5 to 6.

    I wonder if Boston/Vancouver would be a better draw than Boston/San Jose since Vancouver was the best team all year. The key is the Bruins for respectable-good ratings…Tampa v. anybody would be brutal.
