This bulls*** is why I resolved never to give the NHL a dime of my TV money. There are online alternatives. And those alternatives include every game of the season archived as well.

Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

Last season i missed the beginning of game 4 vs trashville. The first game on versus, rangers-devils i think, was still on. Now, im not 100% sure, but i thought the game was on FSD/center ice as well as versus, and i couldnt watch it on FSD (was blacked out), since versus held the rights to the game, even though the first game was running a bit late. I had to listen online.

and on a sidenote, since the nhl moved to nbc, we down here the the new orleans area have to miss game 3 or 4 of the stanley cup finals, since they do an all day childrens miracle network on local nbc the first weekend of june. I missed game 4 when we won 2-1. Hockey not being big has alot to do with that, but youd think thier was a way to watch it, somewhere...

go wings!

Luckily I live in Cincinnati and get FSN-Ohio which will most likely show most of the games (seeing as how it's the first time their team has made the playoffs) and I have Center Ice through Time Warner Cable. I'm hoping Center Ice picks up the FSN-Detroit feeds as I hate having to listen to Jeff Rimer. Also, Center Ice always blacks out BJs games because I have FSN-Ohio as well. I hope that doesn't cause any problems.

I emailed my displeasure to the NHL's web site the other day and received this response today:

QUOTE
Thank you for your email. Please be advised the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoff complete schedule for Round 1 will be available on Wednesday, April 15th.

This schedule will include the national telecasters for US and CANADA. The schedule will also show the LOCAL telecasters.

Please check back tomorrow.

Thanks,
NHL TV


So maybe they are still working everything ok? Hopefully this is the case...

Meh, what can ya do?

Do I wish the Wings games were more on Versus and get a sniff/two on NBC to start? Of course. But, first/foremost there is more focus on the Eastern Conference/Coast and of course Pittsburgh/Crosby. Does it bother me that much? Not really, it is what it is, but I'm surprised a defending Cup champion doesn't get a little more pub and love, whether it is Detroit or not.

I'll guarantee you though if the Red Wings were pimped as much as Pittsburgh/Crosby, there'd be no complaining as it is convenient that your favorite team is on national TV the most. In the grand scheme of things, the Wings have gotten their fair share of national broadcasts.

Regardless of all this, fans in here are smart, savvy, and dedicated enough to find means necessary to watch their games, regardless of if it is on national TV or not.

True, but 18 straight years in the playoffs, as well as the best away attendance, coupled with having the best selling American jersey, should mean we get a few games shown, right? Hell, ESPN can't go 4 days without telling me when their 2 week countdown to the next Yanks/BoSox match up.

Of course. But sometimes that's just the breaks. For me I just want the game to be available. Versus, ESPN, TSN, Fox Sports, the Food Network, TNT, CNN, I don't care what it's on, just be available somewhere to watch.

Just do what I'll be doing the whole series. Blaming Bettman and his adopted son Crosby for having to miss most of the series. Also, it wouldn't hurt if atdhe was still around and working well. That one is also on Bettman.

Exactly. We've always gotten good coverage in the past. It's like the league all of a sudden decided to cut out the Wings from their schedule. I know Columbus isn't a big market, but neither is Nashville, and yet all our games against them were televised last year.

Also, the other original 6 teams likewise got hosed by this deal. Hardly any of their games are televised on Versus, either.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The Wings aren't going to get favorable treatment every season for TV. Sorry. Get Center Ice if you want to watch every single game.

We have for like the past 10 seasons or so. That seems like consistency to me, which would warrant the expectation that it will happen again, especially coming off a Cup run and a good regular season finish in the standings.

One thing can be expected, though. Namely that the Penguins will get favorable treatment every season on the TV.

Everybody simma down now. Here's how it will almost certainly work:


If you have Center Ice, you will get the feed via either TSN or FSD for sure, no matter who the provider.

If you live in or around Detroit, FSD will black out VS coverage.

If you live outside Detroit, VS will blackout your FSD/Center Ice coverage.

Yeah, it is just down right stupid. There won't be a free internet feed of the games will there?

I know the Red Wings won't get treatment but it would be nice to show at least 1 or 2 games on VS.

What makes matters worse, is that game 1 is on TSN2, correct?

Luckily, I get TSN2 (In one fricken' room!), but a lot of people do not get TSN2... I guess that's one of the only downfalls of playing Columbus is round 1. The possibility of getting Calgary or Vancouver in round 2 will be better.

Looking at the sched it appears that game two will be shown on TSN which is awesome. With my luck though my hotel in Montreal probably doesn't get TSN.

I wanted to ask an update on this thread. How have the 2 games been split so far on TV. I've noticed a mix so far. Game 1 was on CBC (not sure where else), and then Sunday we got it on NBC. Anyone have the TV sched. for the rest of the round? It seems to be jumping around a bit.
