    I've had the NHL CI for the 3rd year and it's always great to watch. I can watch the Wild play from different feeds and other ota channels. Even the canadian games are great as well. You get feeds from sports net east,west,pacific,and more. I hope they continue with more ota feeds. And go Wild!
     
  2. The trouble with the NHL is that the regular season is just spring training for real hockey - the playoffs

    I must admit I enjoyed hitting the "recall" button on my remote tonight switching between the World Series and the Blue Jackets. :D

    Great game by the Blue Jackets as well, defeating Florida 4-1.
    Bad part was, I had to drink Corona tonight, Molson Ice is much better with Hockey. :lol:

    Now Im watching Edmonton/Boston and the Series. :)

    John,
    I had Center Ice for a while about 2-3 years ago on Time-Warner Digital cable..I had a blast watching the diffeent announcers and teams you dont see as much. Last year and this year I get the Blue jackets on Fox Ohio and the Penguins from Fox Pittsburgh with the Dish Sports pack (The Penguins claim Canton/Stark County as part of their territory from even before the BlueJackets arrived).Funny thing was since almost no one got Fox Pittsburgh in Stark County.no one saw the Penguins..Penguins did sell Pay-Per View which I bought a few games ofabout 5 yrs. ago..
    I became a Hockey fan through the Original Cleveland Barons AHL team, Cleveland Crusaders.(World Hockey Assn.) and the NHL Barons am just nowmgetting interested in Columbus Though I also like the current Barons AHL Franchise which moved to Cleveland last season.

    That Leafs/Canadiens game (2-2 tie) was almost like playoff hockey. The refs/players seem to be settling into the new rules

    Excellent game. That save Hackett made on Sundin in OT was great. It looks like it went off his head!

    John, Hockey is a great game, I'm sure your going to enjoy the NHL CI. :)

    If Dish Network gets the NBA I will sub to that one as well.

    Keep up the good work here, John I enjoy reading the Sports forum here. I'm just a lurker that stops by every now and then.

    GeorgeF, I'll probably get the NBA package if Dish Network gets it as well.

    Thanks to you and all other posters, that is what makes this forum. :)

    Make a point of tuning in to catch the Buffalo Sabres play by play guy when the game is on Empire some night just to get a real feel for unbelievable enthusiasm / home team homerism! I can't recall the guys name, but once you hear him celebrate a goal you will never again forget it. The Penguins used to have a pretty colorful guy awhile back as well who always came up with really random signature calls for whenever Jagr or Lemieux would score ala "scratch my back with a hacksaw" / "upstairs next to grandma's peanut butter jar" / "get over grandma cause Jaromir's in the fast lane" etc...

    Unthinkable...the Sabres play by play guy is Rick Jenrette and I agree he is entertaining with his calls, etc.....BTW the Penguins guy, Mike Lange is still dishing out his entertaining scoring calls.....Listening to those 2 call goals is HILLARIOUS, IMHO

    Those are the men - thanks DCSholtis! I could sit back and listen to Rick Jenrette call Miroslav Satan goals all night long.
