Here is what I figure. By last years NHL Center Ice price on a 85 game season it came to about $2.18 per game. So 48 games @ $2.18 = $104
If it is much more than that I will pass on it this season.


Actually the NHL normally plays an 82 game schedule.


And not all of those games are available on CI.

It's not the NHL decision on the NHL Center Ice Package, not 1 of the TV Providers will be offering anything for Free!

In California? I guess if you order the NHL Package you should get the Philly Broadcast, that is what I love about Directv they give you both Teams Broadcast, but living in Philly every time the Rangers play the Flyers it's Blackout on NHL Package

Incorrect. When the Flyers play we get one broadcast and that's the other team's. Only exception is when the other team is not televising. On top of that, if it's a Canadian team, we almost always wind up with a standard def broadcast.

If the NHL really wants to thank us, they can turn off that freakin annoying crawl on the NHL Network during live broadcasts. That would satisfy me.

So you not only want them to waive revenue, you want them to pay others to say they are sorry to you.


Yes that is correct. The NHL locked out the players and the fans by choice,so yes I would like to say them to say they are sorry with NHLCI for free/no charge for this shorten season.

I'll ask you the same question psunate77 would not answer.

If you walked up to the front door of BankAtlantic Center or Tampa Bay Times Forum, would you expect them to give you a ticket for free?

I wouldn't expect it. But it sure would be a welcomed gesture and tell me the NHL really cares about its fans.

The reality, though, is that the NHL depends on the live gate for its revenue more than any other sport. So the league's grand strategy should be to retain paying customers in the seats. I predict the overwhelming majority of feel-good efforts will be directed at making ticket purchasers feel good about continuing to part with their money, and a minimum at Centre Ice or Game Center subs, who don't contribute nearly the proportion of revenue that the live gate does.

If you consider the full-season ticket holder to be the core of their fanbase, then you could certainly make the case that making the first home game back "free" (i.e. crediting their account) for STH makes even more sense than discounts on NHL CI. But I don't expect that either. I expect team-based promotions that will center around some extra goodies, or selling new partial season STH at a discount (for teams with low attendance anyway).

Ok so the cost should be around $108 for 48 games.

I just got off the phone with Dish 1/10/13, 8:30 AM, no word yet on any price.

But they don't and neither do the players. The last several months demonstrated that.

No because I have never ever purchased a ticket from either arena.

I have been a NHLCI sub for many years.
But as a longtime NHLCI sub, the NHL's choice not to play any games to start the season and the beginning of a new NHLCI season should have consequences.


I was just making the case why it would be smart for the NHL to make the NHLCI free for this season.

I don't think the Bettman or the BOG will ever give us free NHLCI.
But I do think if it isn't greatly reduced ,many in the US will cancel.

$50 is the figure I had in mind too, and I was dumb enough to pay full price for last year. Not to mention the NHL needs to realize that CI is not worth what it used to be since it doesn't have playoff games anymore.

No point in calling yet. Wait for the deal to be completely final and a CI price is put in place.

I did call Dish this morning and they said no word on price yet. we just have to wait. I'm kind of on the fence if it's too high I'm not going to get it. Didn't they used to offer 1/2 a season at $75

I've had NHLCI for years, both on Comcast and now most recently on DirecTV. It's a much better offering in terms of HD games, but I'm considering looking at GameCenter this year.

Can anyone who's used GameCenter answer a basic question for me? Does it support recording or some kind of "delayed-start" mechanism? I live on the west coast and like to come home from work and watch games in the evening that started at 7PM EST/4PM PST. With CI, I just DVR these games and then watch them when I get home, but does GameCenter have something like this?

Thanks!
