I think in the fine print of the agreement- Versus has also agreed to change its name every other year- eventually settling on outdoor life network 9 years from now...
Glad to see there will be games on in my area. Living in Buff you are spoiled w/ CBC coverage- I even think there is a way to get TSN? (not really sure about that- other than some rogue stories)..
While I cant get either- I'll at least be able to see other games..

I wrote to Center Ice and asked if they'd consider carrying more programing like HNIC coverage- not just the games and hockey day in canada- etc. I doubt thats going to happen, but it'd be sweet

It'll at least be nice to hear more discussion about how awesome the pens are during games in which neither team on the ice is the pens. It'll also be nice to be able to focus on replays, awesome VS commentary, and (my favorite) commercials for ATVs and boner pills instead of boring fights.

I travel a lot........ Versus is virtually unknown as far as hotel cable TV goes. Occasionally, there's access to pay per view CenterIce. But most the time it's either find a sports bar or drag a loaded up laptop with me and get a gamestream via the net.

I gotta research what the best NHL web streaming TV option is before next season..........

Any and all advise is welcomed!! (other than stop travelling..... that's a no brainer)
