If you're paying for cable, you're giving money to the NHL.

if Redden is going to count either way, is he that bad of an option for the 3rd line pairing on defense? probably so lol

You don't even have to watch. If your package includes MSG, that means that part of what you're paying for the package goes to the cable company accessing the station. Same goes for NBC Sports.

I look forward to seeing all the people who said they'd never watch another NHL game for the rest of their lives in the GDT opening night.

Its obscene to think about the amounts I paid in my younger days. If only the kids now would listen, I'd at least save them from one year of their future kids college tuition.

Lets not go overboard, some things are unavoidable. Plus that to me is peanuts compared to what most fans spend on one or two games let alone seasons.

We get to watch the Rangers play the Isles/Pens/Flyers/Devils a total of 28 times in the regular season. Out of 48 games.

It's gonna be a wacky season.

That doesn't help us much, with the strength of the Atlantic.

Isn't it 24 times? 6 games for each.

I seem to remember it being 8 at one point. The 7 is probably just for this season because there's no good way to split the rest of the season up between the 10 teams in the other two divisions. You can't play those teams 3 times, because it would leave less than 4 games against your divisional rivals.

That means 3 out of every 5 games will be against the ATL division. Yikes

Because we can afford to deal with our bad signings since we actually have a successful franchise, and that's unacceptable. Edit- successful monetary wise of course...

We're just gonna use our compliance buyout on Redden anyway. I don't see what the big deal is here about him counting against our cap.

Compliance buyouts don't happen until after this season, but it seems that the one-way AHL deals counting against the Cap will count this season.

Of course, the Rangers have $11m available before resigning MDZ, so it really doesn't matter for this year anyway.

I've been seeing on twitter everywhere from 4 to 7 each within the division. Best to just wait for word directly from the NHL.
