west of bellville here - my former RDS package useless and nothing on my basic cable... so I am watching on hockeystreams.com - it gives me the choice of the blacked out RDS feed or the Toronto sportsnet feed - watching in English - the stream is very good, video quality is fine - not a big sacrifice to watch on my desktop's monitor - reasonable price - worth checking out

- Comment on Canadiens trade Peter Budaj to Winnipeg Jets (2014-10-06 02:34:13)
I agree completely with your thoughts about JT - she was the best intermission commentator when she used to do her summary here on HIO - and her blog has become regrettably infrequent of late - but it is always well worth the read when it happens. I hope her concerns about chemistry will not adversely affect the team - I agree that Josh and Gio provided a steady leadership for the team - but in my view they were both somewhat conventional in their approach. For me the best outcome is that the new crop - especially PK will still be able to rally the troops as needed but in addition bring some creativity to the role In any event I welcome the resumption of JT's blog after a silent summer. May she have the occasion to write many more entries this season.

i was hoping that the nhl was noticing the absence of adverts during the game - so nice not to have a "commercial time out" great game
