So I'm aware that the video quality isn't nearly as good but I need something to watch in the meantime. I'm actually really happy too because I get to watch the first two games when they're happening. I get off work early Saturday and don't work Sundays. Pretty stoked about that.
I haven't made a final decision yet, but that's the way I'm leaning too.
If "all" I get to watch for most of the season is Coyle, Phillips, Zucker, Larsson, Bulmer and Hackett. . . well, I think I'm going to be okay with that. I wouldn't have said that about last year's Aeros team, but I think of any year in quite some time a Wild fan can justify an AHL Live season pass for the Aeros, whether there is NHL hockey played this season or not, it is this year.
If NHL/NHLPA settle on Thursday (I doubt it) with a revamped 82 game schedule, I might have a long talk about it with myself, but otherwise I'm likely to pull the trigger.
