‘”The other issue is, what network do you go on in Canada?” Quinn said. Meaning that the NHL has laid out broadcast territory, called the Area of Dominant Influence (ADI), for every team. The club has exclusivity to that area, which extends in a 50-mile radius from the team’s arena. Toronto’s and Buffalo’s ADIs slightly overlap, near Hamilton. It was the ADI which buried a possible deal with OnTV to broadcast the Sabres. The Hamilton station was very interested earlier this year, Quinn says.’
