Not even that bad out here on the west coast, just get the boys together from some post Christmas dinner beers and hockey.

Edit: Only bad thing I can think of is that the atmosphere at the arena probably won't be as good as it is for Canada games. But the Russian fans will be out in full force for the Canada vs. Russia game.

Obviously the hockey world doesn't revolve around and needs to cater entirely to Canada, and the home team always gets to have their ideal time slot. But when you have these international tournaments I would think it would be a general common courtesy that when possible you organize your schedule so the playing teams have a favorable time slot for their home audience. And when conflicts occur you do your best to balance it out.

So looking at this schedule why couldn't they swap around the Sunday games, Slovakia vs Germany and Canada vs USA? Though I don't know exactly how the times work out, would that put Germany and Slovakia in an equally undesirable time slot?

Well, you cant have every year in Canada or an american border town, otherwise, you might as well name it the Canada Cup.

Based on the disparity in interest level between europe and canada for this tournament, I bet they make a killing in canada, and will be back very soon.

European fans watch games at night 82 times a year + playoffs. As far as I know, nobody has died from that.

It's absolutely stupid to hold this tournament outside of North America when you consider revenues and who ultimately cares about the results.
I think Sweden, Russia and Finland care about the results the most, no?
Anyway, this thread is a parade of arrogance.
And yeah, afraid to shock you, but these will be the times for Olympics. Prime time in Russia (7PM) is 10AM in East coast.

Are people really upset about the time? It's in Russia.. I don't see why Americans and Canadians should get priority.

As long as they support the team the whole time then I'm fine with it. I hate the people who don't watch much hockey and get all on Facebook saying how much Canada sucks and is a disappointment as soon as we lose one game. I support our team win or loss.

MY question is, when we set our PVR's does the channel recieve a "hit"? Basically does that count as a viewer? Im not sure how it would work, and if it helps, I have Telus Optik TV.

Man 11 hours!
Even the people in Sweden and Finland are gonna be hating on this year's hosts!
They too have a 5 hour difference to UFA.
Atleast 7:30 starts will be 2:30pm starts for them, but still not the best.

Think of all the Russians who have had to endure games from western Canada...

It is what it is... man up and watch...or don't.

Does anyone remember doing this during the Nagano Olympics in 1998? Watching a game at 3am isn't the most ideal time but it is what it is. I have no idea how I did it then but for some reason I had no problem setting my alarm, waking up for three hours and then going back to sleep. I never did go back to sleep after the Canada/Czech game though. There is 9 hours between us (Eastern Standard time)

Dude, not sure if you're a post-school person who's working and actually works through the holidays but if not and you're on Christmas break... it's one early wake-up...

I might catch replays for round robin games, but at the very least I will take the early wake-up/late night for the gold medal game.
