A quick question for our American friends in the crowd:
I'll be in Palm Springs this year for the holidays and I was hoping to catch the world junior championships, especially with a few big Oiler prospects going. Does any (cable) network in the US show the tournament, or am I going to have to look for an online hookup?
The NHL network is pretty good with that stuff, but it isn't part of basic cable. If the place you're staying in has DirecTV or something like that you'll be in decent shape. You'll be missing TSN, that's for sure.
I can't remember how it was this past year, but in past years I'm pretty sure a few of the games (SCF) were on Versus, which isn't part of basic cable. With satellite TV it isn't a problem, but if you just had regular cable it was. NBC does broadcast select playoff games plus the Winter Classic though, so there is a little hockey.
