I'd be down with this for sure. Night that the Oilers aren't on I'd prefer to watch teams I find fun to watch, and not be stuck watching the Flames or Nucks. Getting to see some Flyers games and stuff would be awesome.
I'm sure we all expect the NHL to disappoint on this, as they usually do. They "thanked" their CI subscribers after the last lockout by charging the same amount as before the lost season. Charging nearly 60 dollars for 48 games might be a break off of previous half season deals, but it isn't good enough for me. If that's their plan, I'm checking out until the draft.
That is definitely a discount over past seasons, but I imagine not as much as some people may have hoped.
Last season was $160, or about 89 cents a day or $1.95 per game (for one team's full 82 game season).
This year, if it is in fact $50, that would be about 50 cents a day or $1.04 per game (for one team's full 48 game season).
