With the NHL season to begin soon, I'd once again like to request D* to make a new TV App called My NHL Team. Functionality would be same as the My MLB Team and My NFL Team app: scores, schedule, standings.

There was (still is) a My World Cup Team app for a one month tournament, so I'd think there could be an NHL app that could be used every hockey season. Help us hockey fans out D*.

Maybe if enough of us request it, D* will listen. Thanks.

I don't know what it does but it gets my vote too
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

Nope, not dreaming. Its in the newest issue of Access magazine. It seems it wont be available until opening day of the season though. Kinda sucks that we have to wait, but at least we are finally getting one!

Yep. It's on page 15 of the October issue in the "Know it all" section. It shows the Penguins app.

The opening of the article says:

"Once the puck drops on the NHL season October 7th, you can follow your favorite team with scores, schedules, and stats right on your TV - even while another program is heating up your screen."

Features included are:
Schedule
Game Summaries
Team Leaders
League standings

I can get apps to work on just ONE of my receivers, and it's one of my 24's. It is so frustrating.

When I can get more than one IRD to pick up apps, then I can focus on this request and potentially more apps.

Correction....I just tried the one receiver I had that Apps work on 75% of the time.....Apps not working.

I rebooted and waited 10 minutes.....Apps not working.

I press right arrow.....and after 5 minutes Apps still do not load up.

Everything else works fine.

After reading here about NHL&NBA app I checked last evening and found at the App store one for NBA listed under just added list.This is great for me to follow the Sixers like I, do with the Phillies since I live in Comcast controlled broadcasts in Phila. area. By the way for NHL fans didn,t see one yet for them which seems strange since they start up this week .

Great! I can't wait. I wonder why they're waiting until the start of the regular season?

I'd like to see it too, for everyone here, but I wouldn't use it myself for a couple of reasons. First, living on the West Coast and having a long day/four day work week, I have to save my games on the DVR (and go into news/twitter blackout) until Friday when I have time to catch all of the Isles games from the week. Second, since TV Apps is so flaky and slow, I can pull out my Pre and access the NHL Scores app much more quickly and reliably.
