Yawn. Going to see those teams plenty of times in the regular season. No desire to see them in the preseason.
If the NHL Network does not do this already, it should steal a page from the NFL Network's book and show many preseason games, even if tape-delayed. We can see more games and more teams this way than just piggybacking off of other networks' live broadcasts.
Not all teams "tape" their games (much less have the regular season game pxp, analysis).
Sharks (as it stands now), will have radio coverage (only) of their last two preseason games, and nothing the first four.
Unless a sponsor and/or Comcast comes up with $$ to do this, I don't expect anything to happen. (Local station happily playing MLB on Sharks TV station.)
So, three of the four games televised will include the Flyers?
I'm not yawning about seeing hockey as soon as possible. I'm yawning about the fact that Comcast, who owns the Flyers and VS is showing their own team three of the four telecasts.
Perhaps because they are actually broadcasting them.
AFAIK, none of the California NHL teams have any of their PS games broadcast.
What about Chicago, Detroit? Islanders, Rangers, Devils? Bruins?
I think the Bruins had one pre-season game each of last 2 seasons on NESN.
This pre-season stuff is slowly catching on. I'm not surprised that teams thought there would be little interest in this stuff. This is the time when teams look at guys, most of whom won't be good enough to stick. From pre-season games that I went to in person, many years ago, it wasn't the most exciting hockey. Surprisingly though, many of the games in recent years have been pretty entertaining.
I think we'll see a growing trend in this direction. I look forward to the VS games, regardless of whether it's Flyers or anybody else.
...and the game or 2 on NESN
yeah. Remind me again, who owns the Flyers?
The fact that they're even showing any preseason games to begin I find to be a pretty big deal, and pretty awesome.
It's Preseason, boring. No matter the sports I just can't get up for em. The games don't count for anything.
I agree about the lameness of the NHL Network though.
