    why would they sell the half price offer when theyre will be about 6 / 7 weeks left.

    they will be selling the final qtr of the season.

    it will be lower.

    You may be right, at some point it will go down to about $80, but I thought it was closer to the playoffs.

    I guess this doesn't actually fit in here, but the Winter Classic for 2013 will be Toronto & Detroit and is being played at "the big house": University of Michigan's football stadium. Seats around 109,000.

    With the recent stadium expansion, I believe that attendance will be closer 115,000. They had 114,804 for the Sept 10,2011 Notre Dame game. It's all about the $'s. IMHO

    Next Sunday 2/19/12 is Hockey Day in the US. Three games start at 12:30 ET:

    Pittsburgh @ Buffalo NBC (HD)
    San Jose @ Detroit NBC (HD),NHLN-CA
    St Louis @ Chicago NBC (HD)

    I'm wondering if I'll be able to watch all three (1 on local NBC and 2 on CI) or am I only going to be able to watch the game my local NBC station carries?

    Center Ice won't have them but they will be streamed on nbcsports.com. I think they did the same thing last year.

    Looks like the in house feed. SD video in HD, with the radio WQAM broadcasters. Not FOX Sports HD quality, but at least we get the game on a non-broadcast night. Thanks Panthers and DirecTV CI.

    Amazed that there was no Canadian broadcast of the game. Understand that some US teams don't carry some games against Canadian teams due to perceived lack of interest I guess but didn't realize any Canadian team games weren't televised. Explains why it wasn't on Dish Center Ice although CSR I sopoke with had no clue (as usual).

    Nhl networks coverage of the detroit/nashville game is a joke. Extra commercials during timeout. Late to come back from commercials/intermission. Terrible bottom ticker. I also notice they are overlaying their own graphics/promos. I don't mind the score box, however it is annoying to see a static upcoming game screen when the announcer is doing a promo for fsn. Not to mention that the contrast is unbelievably high (though i am not going to blame the nhl network for that, probably fsn) Awful, just awful.

    I'd cut them some slack. This was their first game using this method. NBA TV has been doing this for awhile now. I agree that it was awkward and the promos were odd but give them some time to work it all out.

    I would cut them some slack on some things. But not when they add commercials during a timeout(after icing) that isn't present in the fsn broadcast, then coming back 10 seconds late because you had to add the extra 30 seconds of commercials. That and the ticker at the bottom of the screen. That ticker absolutely drives me crazy. Why can't they do it like they had in previous years, only show it during non live broadcasts. Not during live games...extremely distracting, but sadly more and more networks are doing it during sports. (mlb, fox nfl, etc.)

    This is a tempting price.

    Does CI continue into the first few rounds of the playoffs when NBC/NBCSports will only show select games?

    I believe CI will be good for the first round, but after that, all games will be on an NBC station.

    Edit: from the NHL press release when they signed the contract with NBC:
    Local sports networks can carry their teams' 1st round games, but any games on NBC, and any NBC cable games from the 2nd round onward, will be exclusive to NBC.
    Continued sharing of the Stanley Cup Final on NBC (which will air Games 1, 2, 5, 6, and 7) and NBC Sports Network (Games 3 and 4).

    This is from the CI web site:
    "Q: HOW MANY GAMES CAN I EXPECT TO SEE ON NHL® CENTER ICE®?
    A: As an NHL® CENTER ICE® subscriber, you will see up to 40 games a week (from outside your local viewing area) throughout the regular season, select games from the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup® playoffs, plus premier Canadian match-ups."

    I wonder if that has been updated since the new NBC/NHL contract?
    My quote came from NHL-NBC Press Release
