Rangers/NHL torrents

Anyone know of a place where you can get Rangers/NHL/hockey torrents?

I saw this place http://nhltorrents.co.uk/index.php but have no idea if it's good or not.

I do not think it is legal to download games and other NHL media.

But it's legal to tape record a NHL game and watch the tape 50 times right?

No. I am in contact with the RIAA and MIAA, expect your house to be raided swat style.

The supreme court has ruled that the tape recorder does not violate any copyright laws correct?

I don't see why it would be illegal to download old games for personal use.... It's not like they are pay per view. I would think the only illegal thing you can do is put them on disc and sell them or accrue any sort of profit from downloading them. Not familiar with the NHL's copyright laws.

Not to further this debate, but it is illegal. In reference to the Supreme Court's view on tape recording sharing amongst friends, the court system sees no parallels in sharing online (as evidenced by rulings against Napster and Grokster).

A similar thread has already been posted recently:

Just because it's illegal doesn't mean its wrong.

Technically watching the streams online is illegal as well...but then I wouldn't get to watch the Rangers while I'm at school

If mods disapprove: please delete this thread.
If mods approve: That site you linked is a life saver! Most NHL games are available in decent quality a few hours after completion.

Anyone have, or know where I can find, an HD recording of the Prague game on 10/4?

I was in the second row and want to get some shots of me and my family on camera.

Thanks.

Those links are for streaming live games, generally with very poor video quality but fantastic if you can't get the broadcast in your area or country.

However, the original poster was asking for a way to download recent games with much higher video quality, maybe a few hours or a day after they've been played.

Not all Europeans can stay up in the middle of the night to watch live NHL.
I sometimes prefer to sleep at night, start the download in the morning, and watch the game when I get home from work.

Peer-to-peer services such as live streaming and BitTorrent are highly illegal in some countries and perfectly legal in others (such as Sweden ).
I have a feeling posting actual torrent links won't be accepted here at HFBoards, but we should be able to discuss where to find them. I may be wrong, though...

Does anyone know what the punishment would be?

Like in Sweden its illigal too -- but unless you earn money from dooing it, its very hard to prove that any damages have been made.

And to prove in a court of law that one person is responsible of a criminal act they pretty much have to get a warrent, search the house and seize the computer -- for something that caused the NHL like zero damages. Or maybe a few bucks if they start counting on lost profits at espn360 who sales games on demand.

So in Sweden its illigal but on a smalscale where you don't make any money of it you basically can't get punished for it.

Anyone know if they have torrents of the Rangers HD feeds there? I record all the games in HD on my 8300HD DVR, but I can't get them off there for archival purposes.

Not really, not yet. Last season they had a few games in HD (or at least 720p from the HD feed), mostly Bruins games by a Bruins fan.
Some cappers have stated intentions to cap more HD, we'll just have to wait and see.

720p is HD, so that's fine with me. Looks great on my 112" screen so I can't complain. I'd love to have a 1TB hard drive (or whatever it would take) with every game from the season in HD. That would be a cool archive to have. Hopefully someone will start posting the HD torrents soon...I'd be all over that.

How about you do it yourself? You already have the HD feed and I can offer you a complete step-by-step process in capturing and encoding the HD source.

I know first hand the amount of time and work put in to distributing these feeds, so if anyone is interested in getting started, I can give you some insight and ways to do it (even on the cheap).
