Looks to be crazy, hopefully he doesn't push them too hard especially with the condensed training camp.

I'm sure playing six games in nine nights won't get our guys injured at all.

I'm sure there's a Marian Gaborik joke in there somewhere.

Just a little bit given one of those games is in Finland.

Also, ten bucks says none of them will be shown on television.

That depends 100% on whether or not FSN2 is up and running by then.

I haven't heard any updates for a while now, but if they have FSN2 going, I'd be willing to bet that they're on TV.

The fact that there is no FSN+ or 2 or whatever they want to call it is just pitiful since every other city has had one for at years.

Seriously, in DC there are 2 MASNs (both in HD although MASN2 is still an overflow channel), Comcast Sports Net and an alternate station for it. The only time FS North has an alternate station is for the one or two Gophers first round games which conflict with the Wild or Wolves.

Up until recently the issue has been Comcast, not FSN. Comcast waited for quite a while to make the full switch to digital (that they're working on now, and likely mostly done with). Comcast didn't have the bandwidth available at a reasonable rate for FSN to pursue.

Now that Comcast isn't going to carry analog channels, there's a good chance we'll see quite a few channels expand further, and FSN has already expressed that they're working on FSN2. It may well be ready before the season starts, it may well take longer... We're stuck in "wait and see" mode.

I call shenanigans. Comcast is only part of the market as there's still Direct TV, Dish Network and satellite; all of which could carry that channel on a regular basis. The Twin Cities have always five years behind the times in technology - another good example is the slow increase of sports games in HD - and it's very disappointing after living somewhere else.

Of course I can't find the article now that it matters, but I read exactly what I typed back when I worked for Comcast.

FSN didn't want to put out a new channel unless it would be everywhere in the metro, and Comcast wouldn't give them a high number digital-only channel deal that FSN would agree to.

Now that Comcast has more extra bandwidth than they've ever had, they're much more willing to expand for the sake of expanding.

To be blunt, it didn't help that the Timberpuppies suck as much as they do. If FSN knew they'd get more viewership and thus more advertising money, it's possible they would've been more apt to take it on the chin.
