I got GameCenter this year, because I figured it was cheaper than normal and I'd try it out.

Never again.

They black out the NBC games; okay, that makes sense, I could get NBC if I invested in like a $5 antenna. Then they black out TSN and NHL Network. What? One of those is in Canada, the other one is a zillion dollars.

It makes me so mad, because I only am able to watch 20 or so games a year. If they had a PPV thing, I would gladly chip a couple bucks a game. But as it stands, I'm being asked to pay $160 (in a normal season) to get 50% of what I want to watch blacked out, or pay even more for fancypants cable subscriptions that I can not afford on a grad student stipend.

I'm true to my word. I stopped pirating music as soon as iTunes type services started, because I was able to pay a fair price for what I consumed. Same deal applies for hockey, as far as I'm concerned - they give me a reasonable way to pay, I'll pay it. Until then.... ahoy, mateys.
