    anyone watching the Leafs sabers its on NHL N No sponsors are along the boards. I think that is the first time i ever seen a rink, without advertisement along the boards.

    I know the arena was changed from hsbc to first niagra, but all white rink.

    Makes me think they just put in new boards. Strange that they wouldn't have the decals on for a televised game???

    They said that they always do that, in Buffalo, for preseason. Regular season will have sponsors.

    well I figured i should call and try and get my CI deal for the year since the season starts thursday...called and got a very nce female retention CSR and talked her into 100 off one time payment of 172 making it 72 dollars, plus she gave me 20 off for 6 months on base package and 3 free months of whole home...at first it was just the 20 off for 6 and pay the 4 payments of 43...then I asked for the money off one time payment (they usually go for that) so total deal was 72 for CI minus 120 minus 9 which means they essentially gave me 57 dollars to take CI...thats a deal I can live with....thought it would be tougher since i got more credits than ST cost and essentially got paid to take that as well...so far i like D. Thats why I dumped Time Warner last year.

    you really should call back and talk them into at least 100 off a one time payment...you gave up WAY too easily.

    The NHL announced that months ago. Was there anything new announced about the Winter Classic today?

    If it was announced months ago why was it a special announcement today? Maybe they just announced the teams months ago? Not where they were playing it?

    Teams and location were announced during the Stanley Cup. And that it was being moved to Jan 2nd (because of football).

    So what was new today? From today's NHL Press release:
    "worst-kept secret"? He announced the teams in the spring. Even the NHL.com web site has had the schedule posted for several weeks with this info. Here is the link to the NHL's press release on June 23rd about this game. June 2011 Press Release. So what was new today?

    I think having the 2 teams playing today and it also being on VS had something to due with it coming today.

    I believe they usually do the actual press conference in july.

    There wasn't a formal press conference before. The biggest news was the unveiling of the logos for the game and the return of HBO 24/7. Besides that, it was all PR stuff and a way to hype the game.
