Centre Ice is definately the way to go. There's usually only two or three Habs games a year that aren't on it. And since the Habs have no English broadcasters, you always get the opposing team's play-by-play guys. Some are really good and some are really bad, but you get a different perspective every game which is good. You also get good insight into the other team.
Problem is it's like $200, but there are ways of getting around that.
Firstly, thanks to everyone who took the time to reply.
Went by a Bell Store today. They have in-store promotions this weekend that are better than the current website promotions.
They will install the basic 3120 for $50 and provide a $30 programming credit (almost free).
The 5120 system is $350 and they add a $50 credit to that. You have to sign on for $40 min. worth of programming for 2 years with either. The 5120 has the PVR (built in hard drive) and rew/ff/pause capability (no commerials!) so this sounds too good to turn down.
Just in case anytone else was interested, no affiliation, etc.
