If you guys think that Rogers will sell a piece of their brand new contract to a competitor who lost in the bidding, Bell (TSN/RDS), you're nuts. A petition won't do any good.

I'm making the assumption the no blackout rule would also apply to the Centre Ice package. With the contract, Rogers now assumes control of the Centre Ice package and the NHL Network within Canada. So hopefully the "no black out" policy will extend to that as well. I haven't seen anything announced yet, although that will probably come soon. Then we'll know for sure if they apply to Centre Ice or not.

For all those concerned about blackouts, you forget that Rogers has announced no blackouts anymore. "The agreement also guarantees there will be no further regionalization of games or local blackouts. Rogers has three exclusive windows to broadcast any game involving a Canadian team -- Wednesday nights, Saturday nights and Sunday nights. Fans will have the ability to watch any of those games regardless of geographical location within Canada." http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=693152

it's funny that people don't consider how we were already down 2 men, in a 1 goal game and if I remember correctly, on the powerplay at the time. Sure, it's a great idea for Subban to drop the mitts, force more minutes on an already undermanned team, take off your best defenseman, all the while in a 1 goal game, and being outplayed at that point. But yeah, Subban should've dropped 'em, makes perfect sense. Sigh, some people's children
- Comment on Price leaves Habs’ morning skate early; will miss at least two games (2014-02-26 18:13:53)
It's funny, I've been thinking about that trade for a bit. Both are UFA, Jagr won't resign there (IMO). Gio gets to play with his bro and retire there, Jags gets to play with the Habs (as he's wanted to). The only thing is that Montreal would probably have to sweeten the deal with a prospect and/or a pick (probably a 2nd rounder). I think it's feasible, just needs tweaking, especially since NJ probably won't make the playoffs (they are 5 pts out right now). Of course if NJ starts winning and climbs back into a spot, it probably doesn't happen. Just throwing around ideas, but maybe Gio + Leblanc (don't wanna do it, but i think he really needs a change of scenery) for Jags and a 3rd rounder?
