Pretty entertaining finish to that game (habs/wings)

Glad I don't have to deal with blackouts. NHL game center live + VPN means I can watch every game if I want and if I miss it live I can just watch the replay. The only downside is I watch way too much hockey because of it.

What do they charge for NHL game center live + VPN ?

good read on PDO

http://puckologyblog.word...oes-what-it-says-it-does/

- senstroll

Choosing 100(0) instead of the team's average PDO is what bugs me. If a team can show that they can maintain a higher PDO over the course of a season, why assume that they'll trend down to 100? If they're running higher than their average, it's safe to assume they'll balance out and trend back towards their average... by why assume they'll trend down further?


Edit: And many, many people use PDO as a sign that a team is "lucky" regardless of what this article says.

You're not going to find a free one that'll give anywhere near the speeds I need.

I paid $75 for NHL GCL and $32 for the VPN, so $107 USD.

No, they are separate things. By default with NHL GCL you get local blackouts and there is no official way to get around them. It's all based on your IP though. If you have a London UK IP for example you aren't subject to any blackouts whatsoever.

If at some point in the future the NHL decides they will actually enforce their ToS you could potentially lose your subscription for doing this I would imagine. It's been years and they haven't bothered but if you ever do this you have to accept that it could happen.

Have you checked out any of the classic games yet? They've got games going back to the late 50's, it's pretty incredible.

You need a stable 5000kB/s to stream in HD, that's the main reason I use a paid service. Any of the free things that'd potentially work would probably be PC only as well, it'd be tricky setting them up to work with my PS4 which is what I use to watch the games on my TV.

Oh. I see.

I just pay my cable bill and watch whatever game is on. Like Pitts vs Philly right now.

I don't watch TV so this saves me a ton of money. $100 a month just to watch hockey or about $100 a year. Tough call lol.

I don't think you need it, though. You should be able to just switch your DNS, to trick center ice into thinking you're somewhere outside the blackout area.

If just switching out your DNS does the trick, it's really easy to do on playstation.

"WHO is in a better situation: LEAFS or SENS?"


Both teams will probably fall just short of the last "wild card" spot in the East.
