Can a LNB from either a dishnetwork, Directv, or an old Primestar dish work? Where could I get a cheap FTA receiver? I want to try to get this set up soon! I am missing Hockey!

a basic box will run you $100 or so.
I had Manhattan DSR - 1500 from e-Bay for $12, then sold it and got Fortec Ultra for abougt $40.
Invest in good LNB and Dish, make sure it's not warped, I got my stuff from Sadoun.

What's interesting, I don't see this frequency - 12044.500 V - at lyngsat web site, but I will check it out after I finish my new setup, as of now, I cannot receive from Intelsat Americas 8 at 89.0°W .
