Heritage Classic on TV

I don't understand why the NHL doesn't have this game on ESPN or somehow nationally televised in the US. What a great promotional boost for the sport it would be. I guess it's a US\Canada TV rights thing but they should've come to some sort of agreement to bring this into the homes of as many people as possible....

Heritage Classic on TV:

on the CBC, RDS/SRC
and NHL Center Ice

4:30 ET
Ford MegaStars Alumni Game
7:00 ET
Canadiens vs. Oilers

The best money a hockey fan can spend is the $160 it costs for NHL Center ice.

You get pretty much everything including the game this weekend,

Agree 100%.

This is my first year with it and I've watched more games this year than the last 2 years of watching ESPN, ESPN2, NESN, and CBS, combined. It is awesome.

For those who care, I believe they said that the outdoor game will be on ESPN Classic on the 29th at 5pm Eastern.

theres no way in hell i'm spending $160 a year to watch games played by other teams, when all that does is remind be how awful my own team is.


Besides, in the NYC area, between NYR, NYI, and NJ, i can almost alway catch a game every night. Then again, im only get home before 2AM 3 nights a week, at most.

Watched the game tonight on CBC in the presence of many canadians, everyone reminisce about pond hockey. About how much they loved it, how cold thier toes where, how much fun they had, etc... While I on the other hand remembered sitting behind a grocery store in Brooklyn with a portable radio, listening to ranger games, with are feet dangling over a steam grate trying to keep our toes warm in winter, sure wish we had ice in Brooklyn.

Bettman and the league idiots have their heads up their a$$. I agree 100% with the about.com writer that not televising the outdoor game is a major major mistake.

Here's a suggestion: I'm not sure how practical this is, but if I were the guy in charge of promoting the NHL in the U.S., I'd broker a deal to get the CBC and HNIC broadcasts on down here. ESPN bites.
