    Vegas. They need to add to the West to balance out the East.

    That said, I think it's ridiculous that they didn't contract or move certain teams.

    They need to branch out to Houston just so I can see my 2013 STANLEY CUP CHAMPION CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS visit. With the Aeros having fled to Des Moines, hockey is nonexistent down here.

    BTW, the title of this thread should be edited to reflect the Blackhawks likely to win the Cup in 2014. :raspberry

    Some days I still find it strange to find hockey in cities where there's never been a natural ice rink, and never will....Now, you go to your original eight, and you'll find some ice, all right!

    GO SHARKS! Though the 'Hawks were my first team, then the Bruins, then the Rangers....(I root, root, root for the home team....

    well now with the re alignment there are 16 east teams 14 west, so rather do whats right and contract 2, the NHL is going to add 2, the 2 cities seattle and kansas city, I'm not sure kansas city could support it, but they already have a new state of the art arena ready, Sprint Center was build several years ago, they built it to then hope an NHL or NBA or both come, so will see.

    Chris something last name put out about 300m and the rest being paid by seattle tax payers to build a new arena, the plan is they have to add both and NHL and NBA team, so seattle is almost a lock for an NHL team, they are trying to get the kings from NBA but so far are remaning in sacramento so I could see the bucks next on the list.

    I've never heard of the Original Eight. Before the Original Six (1942-1967), there were ten teams in the the NHL, but I can't think of a time when there was eight.

    Well, just a few hours before signing teams 9 and 10! :) I must have mixed up Pac 8 with them, but, yes, six. Chicago, Boston, NY, Montreal, Tranna, and Detroit.

    I called several weeks ago (before the season schedule was even announced).

    The CSR had no information about NHL CI (or hockey for that matter. She tried to tell me it is too early to call because the season doesn't even start until January, but "the pricing last year was $60.").

    Sixers Owner Josh Harris and his group are planning to Buy the New Jersey Devils. The current owner just missed a payment and the NHL was planning on taking control of the devils, but bettman says a sale could be imminent and a new owner could emerge soon.

    Hey, there is a report out that Vanderbeek is out, NHL took over the team after he failed to make his first payment. Can't find any links, but all over the twittersphere.

    Got my bill in the mail today. It stated that my auto-renew price for NHL CenterIce would be 4 payments at $39.99 or $160. Their website still does not show any price for CenterIce. Seems a little high for 1st full season back. Thought they might try luring more people with a more special price. Oh well........

    Thankfully, the 2013 STANLEY CUP CHAMPION CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS are on Comcast Sports Chicago (665) for almost all of their games, with the rest on WGN and NBC, so the CI package for me would be a waste of money.
