They (Leafs) play no better in HD than they do in SD but the games certainly are more watchable in HD.

Go Leafs Go !

Ten more Habs games added to CBC schedule
http://habsinsideout.com/main/9003

Twenty-five Canadiens games on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada this season.

More than any other Canadian team.

This is not a typo.


Of course, how many are National Broadcast and how many are regional broadcasts?

Looking at the Oilers schedule, Sportsnet carries a lot of them, but not many seem to be in HD. Last year, they were using the alternate Sportsnet HD feed on Shaw to do this. How is this going to work this year?

Can't wait to have regional HD channels for Sportsnet. Rexall place is already setup for HD, but because of the Sportsnet's license, they can't air regional games on their only HD channel, whcih is national.

I suspect at the start of the season the breakdown of games will be 50/50 national vs regional for the Habs and the Leafs however by March one team or the other will get the limelight depending on their respecitive situations. It won't be necessarily the team at the top of the standings. Rather it will be the team fighting for a crucial playoff spot (more drama to the story).

34 NHL games on TSN2

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=2504...opRelated_main

In addition to the 70 NHL games already scheduled to air on TSN this season, TSN2 will bring an additional 34 live regular season NHL games - including two Ottawa Senators games that previously were never scheduled for broadcast.

So if my math is right...

TSN = 79 games
TSN2 = 34 games
NHLN = 40 games
CBC = 68 timeslots
NBC = 7 (3 more NBC games on both NBC and TSN)
Total = 228

Even if 8 TSN/TSN2 games conflict, which some do, you can watch 200 NHL games, without Centre Ice. That's not including local broadcasts. That's why Centre Ice isn't worth it.

Centre Ice is only worth it if you want to see every game for a particular team as it fills in the "non-broadcast" gaps or if you insist on a game or more every night (the latter is a recipe for divorce). Otherwise CBC+TSN+NBC etc. pretty well can give every fan their hockey fix.

1,000 games >200 games


$200 is very much worth it to me. I like the freedom to watch SJ vs ANA if I want or Philly vs TB or even CHI vs STL. Last year I watched a lot of SJ games they are a fun team to watch. Plus I can watch Crosby, Ovechkin & the Stamkios(sp?) kid anytime I want to. Philly vs Fla is always fun has well cuz philly gets owned by that team.

These games have been added to the TSN schedule, maybe people here are not aware of this yet.
Sun, Jan. 18 -- NY Rangers at Pittsburgh, 12:30pm
Mon, Feb. 2 -- St. Louis at Detroit, 7 pm
Mon, Feb. 9 -- NY Rangers at New Jersey, 7 pm
Tue, Feb. 10 -- San Jose at Boston, 7 pm
Mon, Mar. 2 -- Colorado at NY Islanders, 7 pm
Tue, Mar. 3 -- Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay, 7:30 pm
Sun, Mar. 15 -- TBA (flex schedule), 12:30 pm
Mon, Mar. 23 -- New Jersey at Philadelphia, 7 pm
Mon, Mar. 30 -- New Jersey at NY Rangers, 7 pm
Sun, Apr. 12 -- TBA (flex schedule), 2 pm

The January 18, March 15 and April 12 games are NBC games.

If there is any team I don't see the need of Centre Ice for it is the Leafs. I can understand US teams I suppose. I usually just watch whatever is on.

Thanks Josh, I didn't see the March and April Sunday NBC games listed on TSN anywhere yet. I did see the others at nhl.com.

This makes no sense at all....I thought the deal for main TSN channel involved all Canadian teams.... and left American teams to TSN2
