When was the last time a team deliberately made their starting playoff goaie into a backup in the regular season only to make him starter once the playoffs began?

I don't know if it was the last time it happened, but that is what the wings did in 97...Osgood started far more games in the regular season, but it was Vernon who got the nod for the playoffs...what was the result of that again? The "detrimental" effect on Osgood's progress from that move was really lacking the next year when Osgood was in net for a cup run...

In the playoffs, when you have a proven veteran goalie...you go with him.

The deal they are trying to work with NBC is not structured like you think.

Comcast would put all of their channels in to the NBCU family. This will raise the production values of the Comcast channels. What Comcast is looking for is distribution rights, including the part ownership of Hulu.

If anything, you will see better channels available and a large increase of Internet content (Hulu/TvEverywhere). If done correctly.

Either way, it's comcast...

After MANY, MANY bad experiences with them, I swore years ago that they would never get any of my money again if I could help it...so far, I have stuck to that...

Comcast owns VS, which is a Mickey Mouse network. This doesn't mean that Disney is involved...it's like when Gretzky called the Devils a Mickey Mouse Franchise...

In my opinion it's a good thing. Anything that keeps the NHL off the Mickey Mouse networks is a good thing.

Lets not forget that Comcast owns the Mickey Mouse network that the NHL is currently under contract with...

Comcast buying NBC will not get them off of VS...

Comcast is, in my opinion (based on my experiences dealing with them), one of the worst corporations in the world...so (again in my opinion) this can only end bad.
