    Now imagine what those numbers would be like if the NHL Gamecenter package didn't have those archaic blackout rules. Astronomical. This is the biggest and most unnecessary drawback to Gamecenter.

    When Comcast makes the decision to put all national games live on the internet, as they currently do for NBC games. Then you will be able to watch them.

    They will never put these games on Gamecentre Live. The CBC doesn't put HNIC games on Gamecentre, they want you to go to their website to view them. Comcast will eventually do the same.

    National games will never be live on NHL Gamecentre.

    CBC's blackout policies I can understand. Their games are free online for all in Canada. However in the US, this is the internet/information age not the industrial age. People's behaviors are no longer that of the average TV viewing audiences. People watch different things at different times in different manners. Games being blacked out on the internet are the modern day equivalent of the dinosaur. I get why they're in place at the moment but it's not good business to apply TV blackout policies to games broadcast on the internet. It just doesn't make sense when you have people still pirating games because of said blackout policies.
