    I did a bunch of research and couldn’t really come up with an answer. There’s no individual access to regional sports networks that I could find. I personally don’t want to pay $65 a month for YoutubeTv and only really watch Caps games. The wife and I don’t watch a lot of actual tv.

    Reminder: Do NOT discuss strategies to circumvent the NHL's licensed streams and broadcasts. Just don't mention it.

    Yeah, I just tried looking. To use the NBCSN Washington streaming services, the only way its possible is through the obvious cable providers but the only streaming options is the YouTube, Fubu, Hulu regulars.

    Sling was the only option that was priced at $35 a month, while the others are all at the very least double that cost at around $65 a month. And it says Sling will be dropping it at April 1 this year...

    Edit:

    Wait, the T-Mobile service is offering a package for $40 a month..

    Online TV Service - More Than Just Live TV | TVision by T-Mobile

    That's only slightly more than the Sling package at $35.

    And NBCSN will seemingly work with TVision by T-Mobile:

    Ah wait. The regional NBCSN stations are on the $50 a month package, not the $40. The $40 package only has the national NBCSN. But its still at least cheaper than the other $65 a month options. Sorry.

    Appreciate the research!

    I think we might wait it out a bit and see what happens. NBC seems to constantly be adding/expanding their Peacock services and if ESPN+ gets a local streaming option I’d definitely upgrade our Disney+ subscription to include Hulu and ESPN+. That’s just a deal you can’t really beat for only $13 a month.

    CBus blows a 4-1 3rd period lead and loses 5-4 in OT to Florida. *Ouch*

    Anders Lee out indefinitely for the Aisles (12g7a), collision with Pavel Dacha

    4-1? that somehow seems familiar...

    Oilers beat up the Sens again, 6-2.

    It was competitive up until 10 seconds in when McD scored. Lol.

    McD with 3 points. 51 on the year.
    Drai with 2 points. 44 on the year.

    McD with 520 points in his first 380 games. That's nearly 1.37 points per game. Wow!

    Kaprizov is single handedly putting state of Minnesota on hockey map once again. Wish the Caps were capable enough to draft at least one such guy that late..

    Did not realize how staggeringly bad Ottawa is defensively. They have allowed 121 goals against and have a -42 goal differential. No other team has allowed over 100 -- though Vancouver is sure to break that barrier whenever they play next since they sit at 99 -- and only five teams have allowed over 90. Their -42 goal differential is 10 goals worse than the next worst team. Woof.

    This is part of why I don’t much care about the individual star awards this season. It doesn’t feel like an equal playing field. In my mind, you almost need to recognize the leaders for each “league”, as they lack of crossover games dilutes it a lot. You don’t compare a WHL player to an OHL player to College, etc etc etc. I know that’s not exactly apples to oranges, but you get my drift. The Canadian division is truly worse than the other 3, with some really bad defenses.

    I do care that Caps players get their own talkies for career statistics, but chasing the Canadian teams offensive guys just isn’t logical. There is a reason 5 of the top 6 scorers are in Canadian teams.

    First Canadian division representative have to lose in playoffs convincingly. Then you can maybe talk about their weaknesses.

    Florida appears to be legit. There are some weak teams in that division, but not enough to explain away a .731 winning percentage.

    They have a good coach and some high end talent.

    I'd also take being forever 25 as I was back when the cup happened. But yeah. I'm 3 years older now and life is moving on. Hockey reality included.

    I don’t think you really want to compare the capable Wild organization to the Capitals. The Wild continue to be a non-contender 20 years into their existence. Congrats on a late pick that turned out and enjoy being a mediocre non-contender.

    The cup and being capable of drafting well late in the draft are not mutually exclusive things. In fact sometimes they are actually interdependent.

    How often would you expect that? To get a star player that late is pretty rare. Right? The Caps drafted Peter Bondra at 156 and Bondra made the team out of that training camp. kaprizov was drafted 5 seasons ago.
