No blackouts in the US.

 

Also keep in mind, those that have a tv provider that carries center ice it's free for the next 3 (or maybe 4) weeks.

If you're a Rogers customer it's temporarily free.  But I'm with Bell and I'm pretty sure I don't get anything free.

 

Is there a stream anywhere?

Well, it's confirmed with Rogers: the only way to watch the game is on a french TV station that I don't get (nor do I speak French).  It's blacked out on Center Ice.  At least it is in Ontario...maybe it's different for people in other areas.

Is the game seriously blacked out on Centre Ice because it's shown on TVA2 (a french language station that basically nobody gets)?

 

I'm hoping I'm misinterpreting this, but there isn't even a GameCenter link up for the game on nhl.com.

We have 5 players over the age of 31.....Franzen (34), Zetterberg (33), Cleary (35), Kronwall (33) and Datsyuk (36) and 3 of those 5 are elite talents. Your statement makes it sound like our team is littered with older players who aren’t performing. We have two in Cleary and Franzen.

It seems like the strong point made in this post has been lost in an argument of semantics.  I don't care if you call Kronwall "elite" or "very good" or whatever else.

 

Ignoring Cleary and (on and off) Franzen, all of our players over 31 are clearly pulling their weight.

Yea, but no one says what they'd do as GM. I bet if the average Red Wing fan became GM, he/she would make horrible trades and sign over priced UFA's. We'd be like the Leafs and our team would be build around guys like Kessel, Phaneuf, Lupul, Clarkson, van Reimsdyk and Bozak for the next 4 years plus. No thanks, I'll take Kenny, who's building the team with the draft, isn't signing any over priced UFA's, and actually knows how the cap works.

 

I understand signing Quincey and Cleary isn't "sexy", but they're only 1 and 2 year deals. That Niskanen deal is insane! Smith and Dekeyser are going to be better then him. Unless a team has drafted the player, I don't think any UFA should be signed for over 4 years. Do an online search and see how many horrible long term UFA signings there's been since 2005-06. The Wings don't have any bad ones over 3 years. The only potential bad one could be Weiss, but he's got a few years to still make the deal a good one.

Yes and Dan Cleary can play better hockey than anyone on this board too.  Like Cleary, Ken Holland is a professional (in theory), who is paid a LOT of money to do his job

 

Pretty much anyone in a professional field is better at their job than someone who isn't part of that field.  But that certainly doesn't mean that an outsider can't objectively see when someone is sucking at their job.

 

Edit: To add to that, if the new standard for managing the Wings is, "well, he's better than fans on a message board," we're in a s**t-tonne of trouble.
