What do you miss most about the Habs/NHL?

For me, it's the whole saturday night/hockey night in Canada phenomenon. Knowing that at 7pm EST the entire sports watching part of the country is tuned into a game (Toronto/Montreal/Ottawa/Winnipeg). I live just outside Toronto, so I especially love it when I hear Jim Hughson in the middle of a game saying 'let's go to Ron Mclean for an update' and for 8 seconds everyone is watching a Habs goal. Then 10 minutes later, it's a Jets goal. All these games are happening at the same time. The excitement surrounding that.
Knowing that even if I have no plans, I will have something to do and look forward to. Even if me and some friends decide not to go out, we can still get together to watch the game.
Although I follow the weekday games, I don't get as amped up for them.
As mentioned, I live outside Toronto so the Habs playing the Leafs is always a big game for me as 90% of my friends are leafs fans. We all try and get our fix through the Bulldogs/Marlies but I agree with a previous post that it just isn't the same. Also the money I am spending now on the AHL is money I'd have spent even if there were an NHL season.
