    I'm actually very excited for this. Not to see what the matchups are, but to see what the plans are under the new deal and the 40 more games they need to get in. Will we still be just mon/tues and they'll pile on the double headers, or will their be another night and will NBC test themselves against an ESPN or TNT NBA Night? Obviously, the lockout could play a big part in the night's they choose.

    So will there be more games on NBC, Versus, or both?

    I wonder if the Winter Classic will get "officially" announced then?

    Schedule out.


    (I'm somewhat happy as the lone possible date for the Sharks being on NBC will be picked up. :sarcasm: First time they'll be on OTA nationally since regional games.)

    Not that I should be surprised, but here's your NHL Network (US) breakdown.

    I know HNIC affects this somewhat, but good grief.

    Looks like they added more teams to the NBC roster, thankfully.

    Only teams that don't have a game on NBC and VS/NBCSN are Ottawa, Edmonton and Calgary. But once again the lineup is dominated by Boston, NY, Philly, Washington, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Detroit. Understandable but still annoying.

    FINALLY!

    It took those dinosaurs 15 years of complaints, but CBC got it right - with the exception of five matinee games, every Canadian team playing on Saturday gets its game broadcast on HNIC (and being matinees, I'm sure Sportsnet/regional affiliates will be permitted to pick those games up).

    Good for CBC! :handclap:

    So, I am completely reading this right? It looks like NBC could end up with some Sunday night games??? :amazed:

    No. I believe it remains the same as the past. NBC Sunday games are at 12:30 (or 1). They will select one of the game listed and move it from the current time listed to 12:30. The other game will remain at the time and air on Versus/NBC Sports Net (that part is new).

    Today only means what get's blacked out on GCL/CI. Really debating if I want to get the package this year, since it's costly and there are many blackout restrictions. Did love it last year though. Just don't know what the incentives are.

    If you are like me and are a fan of a team out of the area you currently live it probably is worth it.

    If you you live your team's area depends on how much hockey you want to watch. Looking at the schedule as is pretty much the only day there isn't some game on between VS. and NHL Network is Friday night (and sundays the first half of the season). So if you are someone who is just looking to watch hockey most nights and don't want specific games for example it may not be worth it because of what is available on TV.

    I don't see any indication of that, though. Seems to me the really early starts are over outside of a few weeks. For instance, Jan 14th, they play early because that's the NFL Divisional Playoffs, which will start at 3 or 4 eastern, so the game is at 12:30.

    I agree. It's Hockey Night in CANADA, not TORONTO-and all the Canadian teams should be able to be on HNIC. Could be more interesting down the road should QC get a team.

    Wow is NBC crazy? The day after Thanksgiving is a huge College Football Day, I know thats been a traditional game in Boston but I can't expect this to compete with College Football.

    I've heard this before about another NHL and NBC they've put on for a couple of years now.

    Anyways it is Boston vs. Detroit. The ratings will be there. Boston doesn't care about College Football at all for the most part, and the only Big Ten game that day is Iowa vs Nebraska (Michigan and Michigan St play on that Satuday) so the Detroit rating will be there.

    It is more than that, the CBC is not televising 12 matinee games involving canadian teams. Four of them being the Canucks, three Oilers, three Flames and two Senators. Yes, Sportsnet will televise them regionally but the CBC still doesn't get it. Boo the CBC and keep up the complaints! :madfire: :madfire:

    A huge college football day? Have you even looked at that games on that day? Iowa/Nebraska and Arkansas/LSU are the only good ones. Those are areas where college football is king anyways so you're not taking ratings away from a place that would normally get them.

    After that the next best games are Pittsburgh/West Virginia and Boston College/Miami. The Bruins are going to get the ratings over Boston College and while Pittsburgh's ratings may suffer because Pittsburgh/West Virginia is a big rivalry, it won't make a big difference.

    Pittsburgh is not in this game, it's Detroit and Boston...

    Isn't the Iron Bowl that day? It was last year and the year before. Bama could be in National Title contention.
