I thought LeBrun said already they couldn't, something to do with local broadcast rights?

They better at least discount the darn thing and offer it (Gamecenter) on computers for free.


The local teams, Devils, Rangers and Islanders and nbc and nbc sports netwowrk games would still be blacked out on the center ice channels but the rest of the games would still be available.

I'm happy the lockout is over, especially for the growth of the game and the local businesses depending on games. However, I won't get real emotionally vested into the NHL again until next season (2013-2014) because I'm just turned off too much after the whole lockout to get into a fake 48 game season. Will still keep up on the devs this shortened season to see how our team develops though.

I am happy the lockout is over, absolutely, but what the hell are we left with? Do we even have a competitive team to field this year?

@TGfireandice: Talked a short time ago to David Clarkson, he was excited deal is done. Made point of mentioning workers in and around arena impacted.

All the reporters really, they were stuck in the cold most of the time for about a week. But first and foremost, thanks to the mediator who made this a reality, with 'twelve' hours of back-and-forth Friday followed by sticking with the sides when they actually were convening yesterday/this morning.

I go back to school the 12th, what are the chances I get a pre-season game while I'm home?

Slim and none, I'm guessing?

There's no chance you get 'any' game by the 12th.

It is too bad they couldn't get this settled in time to have kids from college going to games over winter break, such is the process of stonewalling negotiating an eight-ten year CBA.

Balls. So when will the pre-season start? They'll have two or three games, right?

I know. The Devils sold out like 7 of 8 games during the college break last year. Further proof that we have a younger fan base just starting to buy tickets on their own

Well, with any luck we'll play in Florida once or twice. I'd rather it be 45 minutes away in Sunrise, but if they don't play there I'll make the 4 hour drive to Tampa.

And if they don't play in either, I'll cry and kick things.

They have to play 'at least' one game in Florida and Tampa. Odds are the schedule's either going to be 7/2 (seven division games, two games against other conference teams) if its' a 48-game season or maybe 5/3 in a 50-game season (five division games, three conference games).

Probably no preseason games although the players wanted it at one point I don't think either side wants it badly enough to have them.

I knew this would happen. She left, and now she's back. And I'm so happy to see her back that all is completely forgiven and forgotten. I'm a total sucker, but I don't care. I've got my hockey back.

LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!

That last sentence made me legit lol.. I'm sure they'll play in Sunrise this year and I bet it'll be a big game to their fans so it should be fun to go to
