Question: Heritage Classic

I know the regular game is the early NHIC game. Is the old-timers game a full three period game and at what time does it start?

Thanks

Is anyone else worried about CBC broadcasting next week's game on HDTV? I don't want that stupid widescreen format for the biggest event of the season.

The Oldtimers game is 2, 15 minute periods...
And from what I heard tonight, the Oilumni will have 3 goalies, with Eddie Mio taking Moog's spot...

Not alot of time in the spotlight for the goalies I guess....

From the releases I have seen, 2 15 minutes will be all they can handle without heart attacks.

Hope this is going to be worthwhile...and that it is warm. I scored great seats but freezing my butt off is only going to be worth it if at least Gretz shows up in some sort of shape.

I saw Lowe was skating before the Oilers game. I thought he was going to die.

For clarification...

The Mega Stars game starts at 3:00 MST... with the NHL game starting up at 5:00 MST. CBC is kicking things off with a pregame show at 2:30 according to the press info package that I have.

As for the HDTV stuff?
You won't even notice the wide screen format on your regular TV.

BTW... wide screen stuff is the next wave of the TV future... if you're buying a big screen TV, don't waste your money on a traditional sized screen. Within 3-5 years the wide screen stuff will pretty much be the norm... although your old tv will still work, it won't be quite as dramatic.
The HDTV broadcasts (NFL and CFL) so far have been incredible! No words to describe it.

Cheers!


P.S.
I'm worried that people's expectations are just a little too high for that warm up game with Gretz and company. It's really not going to be much more than a "whirl around the ice for fun" event. It's just a bonus to the NHL game anyway... thrown in there to ADD to the whole day. For old time's sake.

What does HDTV for the telecast actually mean...

I have a 54 inch "HDTV ready TV", but what does that mean? I also heard that you'll only be able to watch it on HDTV, if you are a Shaw Digital subscriber (or some other digital network)

So essentially, I have simple cable and an HDTV-ready TV.. Will I be able to watch the game in HDTV version.
