My only RDS feed is the regular non-HD one, and it was blacked out. I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'm sure not going to pay more than what I'm already paying, just to avoid blackouts. What a scam.

I'm in Saskatoon, on SaskTel Max. I went to RDS to watch Tuesday's game against Boston and it was blacked out. Actually all games on all SN channels were blacked out too, except SJ vs Van, which I couldn't bring myself to watch. I know it's only pre-season but if this is the kind of coverage I can expect, it's a huge step backwards.

Only the Savardian Spin-o-Rama works for me.

Maybe the league should buy the rights to the HNIC theme and play that before every puck drop across the league.

I thought the story we'd been given before is that it's the league which mandates blackouts, not the carriers, according to team territories.

I've always been frustrated with Bob Cole precisely because he seems to want to do colour, and falls behind the play. I guess it's not really colour, he just goes down these rabbit holes continuing to describe something that happened 30 to 60 seconds earlier while the play has already moved down to the other end of the ice.

Nice. Thanks for posting it.

Yes I remember being very discouraged at that point because we were down 2-0 and the game had that feel of being out of reach. Lemaire shoots from outside the blue line, I whined something like "aw man, don't shoot from there, you idiot!" Tony O misplays the rising slapper by dropping to his butterfly, waves at the puck as it sails over his head, and the comeback is on!

When I first saw your name I read "Stoneman". I guess that says something right there.

Why does everybody seem to hate the Sens so much? I mean, EVERYBODY! Even people who don't follow hockey seem to hate them. Is it something to do with Ottawa itself?
