    I try to be Dan ! They brought back many memories.At least they didn't revive the old long black pants they wore in 1980 !!!

    Now if only they'd reduce the NHLN's blackout radius I'd be happy.The Flyers are blacked out here tonight.It's amazing,Center Ice games are fine,no problems.But when the NHLN broadcasts the Flyer's games,it's blackout city. :mad: :mad:

    That would be something, bust out the old Cooperalls with them. I actually like the Flyers old jerseys (new thirds), at least they have some color to them. I'm getting tired of seeing 90% of the league wearing black.

    I'd like to see the go back to wearing white at home.I'm tired of seeing a steady parade of white visiting jerseys coming into the Wachovia Center.What I want to see more are the Flyers turning things around.They are stagnating again.They will be lucky to be a .500 team this season.I am not a John Stevens fan !

    So am I to understand that, for NHLCI games played in Canada, Direct does not present it in HD?

    Or is it that, if Direct uses a Canadian broadcast in NHLCI, that broadcast is never presented in HD, without regard to where the game is actually played?

    They do NOT use HD feeds from Canada.We DO get HNIC games in HD on the NHLN Ch 215 on Saturday nights this season.

    That's strange, I'm 10 minutes outside of Philly and I DIDN'T get blacked out of this game. DirecTV keeps blacking out all Rangers games from me for some reason, but that's another story.

    That's really disappointing. I'm a Calgary fan living in the US and would have purchased the package if Direct at least occasionally or frequently carried the Flames' broadcasts in HD. Thanks for responding.

    I count 28 Flames games in HD that you would receive if you had NHLCI and NHLNET on Directv.

    Well its not to say the games including Calgary are not in HD. Just the "feed" from sportsnet west is not HD but the opposing teams HD feed will be in HD.

    Not sure what you are trying to say? SNET WEST will have 30 some Flames games in HD. The total I listed didn't include the SNET WEST games just the games on other regularly used feeds by Directv.

    From what I can find out there are NO us pay TV suppliers who can show Canada HD
    feeds other then the NHL Network.
    I know that E* never have Canadian HD feeds.
