What is the NHL doing scheduling a game at the same time?

the NHL scheduled an exhibition game in Vancouver on the same night as a CFL game. what are they doing?

how many fans at that hockey game would have been at this game tonight?

that was just stupid.

Who knows, maybe that's the only time the Nucks could play? But ex games in any sport are pretty boring, I would think that only the real diehard hockey fans would be going, those that aren't into the Lions much.

Their buttholes always have been always will be.
