Perhaps that will be a thing of the past at some point, but it isn't that there is "no reason" why they exist. There are lots of reasons: Existing contracts with cable providers and local stations that grant them the franchise for their markets. As long as cable networks are major players in major league sports markets, there is a valid reason for the blackouts. You may not like or agree with the reason, but it's a valid reason. You *could* very well see every NHL game. But you've cut yourself off from your local content provider. Too bad, so sad for you. I think you missed my point entirely.
