In the Fall I'll be heading to college and am extremely nervous about missing all the Red Wings action live! Of course, I can still keep track of how they're doing, and get in game feedback through different sports applications that give you up to the minute feedback (or at least close to it) but I'm curious if there are any recommended or strong websites that broadcast the Red Wings games live all season long! If necessary i'll head to restaurants around the area to watch the game, but I can only do that so often due to the fact that I, like every other college student, will be piss broke. I really don't know what I would do if I'm forced to take a leave of absence from watching my team, any suggestions are welcomed!

They're affordable and they stream every NHL game.

Ditto on the http://www.hockeystreams.com. I have used them many times. Very reliable. You can use many of the free sites, justinTV, atdhenet.org, etc, but they are just not reliable.

You can go to a place like a Friday's, Applebee's, or something, sit at the bar, and order a lemonade or a Coke. Free refills, and you just spent like 2 bucks to watch the game. If you want food, there are always cheap options such as just getting an appetizer.

Pop into the GDT. Someone always asks for a stream, and people are usually obliging.

Thanks a lot for all the info guys! I was really worried about not being able to watch 'em play this year but I'll check out some of these sites and will find something that I like! Again, thanks for all the info!

In every GDT, there are multiple options for free streams. The pay for view streams are more reliable, though.

Like others have said, there are plenty of options, the pay ones being the more reliable (and honest) options. Fear not. I've lived in California for 12 years, and haven't been forced to miss more than a handful of games I wanted to watch in all that time.

As a college student I do use the Free Streams and they have worked for me for the most part. Though usually for the playoffs I can go to the local sports bar and get Versus. As long as the Hawks aren't playing :scared:<_<:thumbdown:

For once I actually like eva's idea, although myp2p.eu is another good alternative, another is making friends and watching at their house, occasionally pitching in for beer.

For watching online, it's not going to be 100% perfect every time, but Hockeystreams is a solid (and fairly cheap) investment for a season's worth.

I've watched as well on free sites as well, pretty much others have mentioned those sites already.

Also another plug-in for myp2p.eu as well, that's also reliable.

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned LGW's own unofficial home-grown Wings-only streaming...I'm not going to post specifics publicly. Its always been high-quality and reliable. During the playoffs this year after the Wings bowed out, I used myp2p.eu, which worked well once I sifted through loads of sub-par streams and found a decent one.

Would y'all recommend Hockeystreams over CenterIce that NHL.com offers? I am too looking into getting into a subscription service where I can watch all the games. I live in the south and there are too many hockey games let alone Red Wings games broadcasted down here.

Gamecenter has better quality, but Hockeystreams is substantially cheaper. I bought 12 months for $60. Center Ice costs $165 for a season.

Personally I don't give much favour to the quality of either. GameCentre's streams are s***ty at HD, which adequately describes Hockeystreams as well. That's why it sucks right now for those not able to park their butts in front of the couch and see some top quality cable/satellite 720p/1080p (screw 1080i) hockey. The quality and consistency of HDTV streams to me is (still) second to none at the moment.

Subscribe to hockeystreams and use their slow/low quality streams, or just use myp2p.eu or if that LGW poster is still streaming freely for other members use him.

I really don't like the fact that this is not directly going through the channels of people who broadcast it but they give horrendous options and need some competition.

I have found that hockeystreams is generally very good; certainly it is infinitely better than the myp2p options.

I agree on hockeystreams as well. I like it a lot and I stream it on the TV right next to me. I used to pay for NHL Gamecenter a couple years ago and NHL Center Ice for about 3 years before that, but its cheaper to use Hockeystreams. Plus, they have other hockey games and events.

I was away one summer and needed a reliable way to watch the games. I was sketched out by hockeystreams.com and didn't want to leave a paper trail with them. So I got a gift credit card from the bank and used it to by a subscription to the playoffs. Worked out great.

If you want to be sure about it... You can buy a sling box for about 200 bucks and set it up so you can stream your parents home tv to you...

Makes sure that you can see whatever games are available to you at home via the internet.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.
