    OLN will premiere 2 new hockey series, "Legends of Hockey" and "The Tournament" which will air on Mondays and Tuesdays prior to and after every OLN hockey game in March and April.

    Also, OLN will air NHL Playoff Doubleheaders Sunday-Friday during the quarterfinals, instead of Monday-Friday as originally thought.

    Does anyone in Canada know if these are Canadian series already?

    I'm pretty sure I saw "The Tournament" advertised on CBC, though I never watched it.

    Well **** me. Is NBC still going to have regional Saturday and Sunday games? Anyone know if the semi-finals, or any other round for that matter, will be changed as well?

    Edit: Saw the thread about NBC having a Saturday and Sunday game during the Quarters.

    Don't be shocked if the Conference Finals end up being a split national telecast, with half the nation getting the west and the other half the east. Unlike the rest of the playoffs, NBC only has one date to air the Conference Finals.

    It's probably this one:
    http://www.cbc.ca/thetournament/season2_10.html

    "Legends of Hockey" is probably the one that airs on the NHL Network all the time - interviews and profiles with Hall of Famers.

    That would be so cool. I love Legends of Hockey. I've got the second season on DVD - great stuff.

    I've watched a couple episodes of The Tournament on CBC... it was pretty bad IMO.

    The conference finals have never aired on the same day. It was always one night east and the next west so i dont see how it would end up being split telecast.

    ...but the Conference finals don't happen on the same night for each conference.

    What are they going to do, only show half the screen?

    No, I mean since NBC only is planning to air COnference final hockey they may do it in a split regional telecast or doubleheader format. Either they'll air both games at 3:00 PM (Very Likely) and show 1 game in half the country, the other in the other half, or they'll show on at 12:30 and one at like, 3-330

    What they need to do is add a show like "The Season." That show was awesome.

    What makes you think this? Sounds like the dumbest idea since the glowing puck. Just keep the two CFs on separate days, please.

    I'm just speculating that since NBC only has one timeslot scheduled to air any conference finals action at all, that they might do this.

    :biglaugh: Ted or Alive. To think people would do things like that to actually spend time with him. :biglaugh: Maybe if the point was to get as far away as possible it would be a little more watchable....

    Looks like OLN has moved the premiere of "The Tournament" to April 10th at 10:00 PM after the Caps-Bruins game.

    "Legends of Hockey" will still premiere a week from tonight (4/28) at 7:00 PM, with another episode airing at 8:00 PM and 12 Midnight.
     
  21. Are you a hockey parent? I watched the first season and laughed my *** off. It was way too close to reality.

    I think it would be sweet if they did a show like "The Season" and showed one hour long episode each month for each division, showcasing the building of rivalries and potential playoff races. Basicly they would run 6 episodes each month at various times.
