Thanks for the update.  I've gone up and down from local access to the HBO's.  Nothing.  Last year they showed it on the NBC affiliate.  I can watch any other sport but hockey thanks to the last strike and ESPN telling them to settle or this is what would happen.

since i've been bored today i just read some old articles from links on wiki and found this:

---------------------
The British ice hockey league handed out suspensions totalling 28 games and fines worth 8,400 pounds ($18,750) Wednesday in the wake of a mass brawl between the Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers last week...

...Eight players and two coaches -- all Canadian -- were ejected after the mass brawl which forced game officials to send the teams to their locker-rooms for a 45-minute cooling-off period.

Officials handed out 404 penalty minutes in one period, a league record. There were also records for the most penalty minutes by one team in a game, with Nottingham getting 230. The most penalty minutes in one period, with Sheffield tallying 211. And the most total penalty minutes at 453.

Nottingham won the game 6-4.

^Not really, though I'm gearing up with fight videos from past seasons. What really gets going here is the London Knights, our junior A team.

^With grace, ease and a few bloody knuckles they would.  :P

Put it this way: Since our club's inception, they've put over a few hundred players into the NHL, including such greats as Darryl Sittler, Rick Nash, Brenden Shanahan as well as future greats like Corey Perry, Danny Syvret and again, more.

^I always forget Sam!! Dunno why; he was killer, though I think he left too early. If I remember right, he had another 2 years he was eligable to play.

NHL Prospect Alexei Cherepanov has died at age 19. Following what appears to have been an accidental collision with Jaromir Jagr during a KHL game, he collapsed and died.

It's reported that Jagr was shouting through tears "Wake up Alexei" upon the incident.

Poor kid and poor Jagr. The risks of contact sports...
