    I know they don't cover their first game until January, but I wonder what their coverage will be like. I know NBC will have such a more professional broadcast compared to OLN. Will they get like Bob Costas to call the games or something. Hopefully he'll be doing the Stanley Cup Finals.

    And What all does NBC cover in the playoffs. I would assume all of the Stanley Cup Finalls, do they cover the Conference Finals too?

    I think its going to be Mike Emrick as the #1 pbp guy, probably with JD on color.

    I know they're not covering the conference finals(so unless you're lucky enough to get CBC, you better have OLN), and I think they only have a few FInals games, similar to what Fox used to have.

    are they doing hd broadcasts? the lack of hd broadcasts are killing the nhl. widescreen nhl is awesome.
