NHL Back on ESPN?

According to John Ourand and Tripp Mickle at sportsbusinessjournal.com (http://www.sportsbusinessjournal.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=article.main&articleId=55770&requestTimeout=900)
ESPN is in talks to bring back the NHL. Apparently there isn't enough competitive eating, spelling bee's, satellite poker tournaments to fill their slots. This would be a great move for the NHL and huge step in recovering from the lockout. I have always wondered why on Saturday Night's ESPN or ESPN2 they didn't just simulcast TSN's "Hockey Night in Canada"(of course only when there are no college sports on).
