Heh, the darknet isn't so dark these days. Still pretty grim though. I would rather solves the problem through universal legalization of all controlled or banned substances. Drug prohibition of any kind is a proven loser strategy.

It is illegal for Hockeystreams to broadcast the streams, and illegal to charge for their service. (Hence why they take "donations".) But I do believe it is legal for you to RECEIVE the streams now they they are "originating" from Europe. (HS servers used to be in TO, if I recall correctly.)

001, What you might not realize that the GTA doesn't house the entire hockey-watching population of Canada. Nor does everyone want to watch television. Even in the GTA. Out on the prairies, my choices are 1) illegal streams or 2) Gamecenter Live. With GCL I'm going to use a proxy to avoid blackouts, making the whole process illegal to begin with. Quality-wise I'm sure GCL is a better choice and worth paying for. If anyone can find any details about GCL for the upcoming season, PLEASE, clue me in. All I see is "NHL GameCenter LIVE™ is not yet available for purchase in Canada. More information will be available in the coming weeks, please check back soon." It doesn't look like they're very excited about taking my money. I'd like to add, I am compelled to get my drugs completely illegally, because they are prohibited. I hope one day to grow my own, legally, so my daughters won't ever have to meet any of the filthy losers I sometimes dealt with in order to score a simple bag of grass. I don't think it's appropriate for a father to supply their children with cannabis, but teaching them to grow would be some enjoyable bonding time.

I'm with you on the sauerkraut, BUT, you can't make perishke without it. So it's got an in. Rye bread though? You must not be getting very good rye bread. It is really the best bread there is. Sourdough rye is killer fresh from the oven.

Use a proxy, like unblock-us - it's $5 a month and you will have zero blackouts. It's good for more than this reason (ie. works to open up Netflix & other services too)

That's the real kicker - bodychecking is to separate the player from the puck. I don't understand why that idea isn't hardened into the game in 2014.

I kinda like that out of bounds idea heh. btw I wasn't implying anything about you or anyone saying it's OK to hit from behind. I think you misunderstood me on that.

As a drummer raising drummers, I approve this message.

While I respect people's attempts to come up with a solution to dangerous hits against the boards, this is a solution that doesn't solve the problem. It's not OK to hit from behind or to make a blind hit on someone. Start getting hockey players to respect THAT, and have a league that severely penalizes these plays. Toss players out of the league for repeat infractions. Like, the 2nd time they do it. Until the game's rules are respected and shaped with player safety in mind, no amount of paint can save anybody. And until a player's NHL career is at stake, they have no reason to take these things seriously - it's always "other peoples' safety".
