Just checked my center ice and the game wont be shown by comcast or FSN FLA so wont be able to watch him play
Yeah, this game is not on tv. Not even on my CI. This no tv ******** really needs to stop.

FSN decided to take all of our complaints from last year into consideration by giving us even less televised games.

I believe it's not on TV due to Versus' Tuesday exclusivity deal.

So, does this exlusivity deal only last for the first 30 games of the season or something similiar? There are games later in the season, on tuesdays, that are being broadcast on FSN.

I have no idea, really. It may have only been for one Tuesday. I'm grasping at straws so I don't get all pissed off at FSN.

The only American network broadcasting a game in the time bracket the Panthers are in is Versus, which leads me to believe it is all because of their exclusivity deal. There do seem to be American networks showing games tomorrow, but they're all later games.

Yeah, somebody should sneak in a video camera & laptop and stream the game live to the rest of us on the net.

But, really this no tv crap does need to stop.


Hope Booth is back soon, but glad to see McArdle get a shot.

Yeah, this is a Versus-NHL thing, not an FSN thing. Only American stations that are showing games that start later in the night will be shown. It's the stupidest broadcast policy I've ever heard of. How does this get ratings up nationwide? People just won't watch whatever game is on Versus, I know I won't. I'll be listening to the Panthers game on the radio. NHL failed on this one.

Me too. Don't know if I'll be listening to the radio broadcast, but I'm not going to watch the game on VS, mostly out of protest. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard, why have any games sceduled at that time? It's dumb things like this that put the NHL where it is with so many people. Baseball do this? Basketball? Football? Badmitten? Poker? MMA? NO.

It's no doubt Bettman wanted Crosby to go to a big market (New York preferably) and that's why he screwed us in that draft. Makes sense for us to end up with a pick one spot above the defending Stanley Cup champions...

No TV eh? I might have to go see the game in person then. Sometimes I stop by the hotel that away teams use to try and meet the players. Any questions you want me to ask if I go?

The no-TV stuff is ridiculous. I don't get Versus either so it's pretty idiotic. I'm a hockey fan and instead of getting at least the Panthers game that isn't on Versus, I get no games!

yep, first hail storm...have been inside and heard hail, but have never been outside when it came down...cool because it was small chunks of ice and not the bigger stuff than dents cars...it went on for like 10 minutes...road looked like an ice truck flipped over...

and I think the versus exclusive expires at end of the month -- only to return in late march (as it has been explained to me)....
