I love the way so many people blame Bettman for everything they perceive to be wrong with the NHL.

They couldn't start the West game on Saturday -- HP Pavilion was booked for another event. And you wouldn't have wanted to start the East on Saturday since Philly just finished with their game 7 Friday night. So blame San Jose for scheduling the arena when they've known since January they were going to be in the playoffs.

Owners replace Bettman?? From Wikipedia: "Under Bettman, the NHL has seen rapid growth of league revenues, from $400 million when he was hired to over $2.2 billion in 2006–07." Dream on.


Ive seen back to back games in the playoffs before, so its not unheard of.

As a DirecTV customer, I have no problem with two games on the same night for conf finals. Since both are on Versus, and both are national exclusives, if the first game runs late, the second should be on the HD alternate channel.

And yeah the league tries to avoid playoff back to backs as much as possible. Thus Sun/Tues for WCF Games 1-2 and Sun/Tues for ECF Games 1-2.

Note after tonight, the WCF takes two days off before Game 3 on Fri. This is to set up Game 4 on Sunday, while ECF's Game 4 will be on Saturday, giving Montreal a HNIC broadcast (yes during the day, but still on a Saturday).
My setup (TV + DirecTV):
Master Bedroom: LG 32" 120hz LCD TV, GENIE Client
Living room: Samsung 46" 120hz LED LCD TV 7000 series, GENIE Master
Dedicated HT: Epson 8700UB projector with 150" 16:9 painted on screen and 180" 2.4:1 painted on screen, HD-DVR (HR22), Denon AVR-890, Klipsch Icon Front Speakers, Center Speaker, and Klipsch Icon Floorstanders for side and rear speakers (6 total floorstanders), subwoofer is BIC America V-1220 12" down-firing sub

I agree. They should have started the West on Saturday night and the East on Sunday night with west game two tonight and game 3 on wendsday. Bettman is a moron and the sooner the owners realize that and force him out the better off the NHL will be.


You are giving morons everywhere a bad name

maybe comcast / nbc should have a VS 2 / make VS alt full time. OR how about letting the RSN's do the playoffs.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.
