I actually really enjoy the TSN broadcasts. The intermissions are actually worth watching because the panel is full of respectable hockey journalists rather than Kevin Weekes. I really enjoy Jim Hughson and Rick Ball (and Kelly Hrudey, actually) but comparing everyone else? TSN is BBC while CBC/Sportsnet are Fox News.

Yup, TSN broadcasts are so much better than CBC broadcasts. CBC's hockey panel is an absolute joke and it's often hard for me to take what they're saying seriously. TSN always has good dialogue between it's members, as well as pretty good humor from time to time. I like Ferraro as well, so all around I'm pretty stoked!

Hopefully we see the Canucks that played against Chicago, not Anaheim.

I can't stand Hughson/Simpson/Heatly. Wish CBC could find a crew who weren't so anti-Leafs or at least impartial.

I'm going to be in Cancun for games 1 and 2. Anyone know if the Riu's play the games in their sports bars, or where I would be able to catch the games?

they had most games on in Cabo when we were there

id do some research though and find a sports bar off the resort if possible, although i think the CBC feed is probably alot easier to get than the TSN feed

As for the playoff beard, the gf will be using the straight razor on me to get it all started.

What kind of lineup would you guys like to see come Wednesday? I would like to see Schroeder take Ebbet's place as I think his speed could really help against the slower Sharks. I also just really dislike Ebbet.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Roy - Kesler
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Weise/Sestito - Lapierre - Kassian

Hamhuis - Garrison
Edler - Bieksa
Ballard - Corrado

Schneider
Luongo

Are all the games on TSN??
Means I can't watch them online HD.


Or does TSN have a HD live stream like CBC's website?

TSN broadcasts in actual 1080 and at a higher bit rate, CBC does as well because the eastern games are usually very high in quality, it's the late games that suffer because most likely they're upconverting the siginal.

And picture and audio quality usually depends on how much bandwidth networks use for HD and how they delivery the signal, be it satellite or via fiber. The best HD I've ever seen for a sport channel is beIN sports, supposedly they're broadcasting via fiber@ 50mb/s, average channels which broadcast in HD use anywhere from 20-35mb/s and it also depends on how they're encoding their content and feed, mpeg2 takes more bandwidth, mp4 less bandwidth.

This is going to suck for those people who don't have cable, or don't subscribe to TSN (like my family). I don't want to have to go out to a damn bar just to watch a hockey game.

However, I will agree that the TSN broadcast is 1 quadrillion times better.

TSN's production value is fair superior to CBC's. I can't stand watching games on CBC usually. IMO the only thing of value on CBC is the series montages they put together, but the actual production value of the game feeds don't compare to TSN or Sportsnet, but I suppose that's what you get with a publicly funded network like CBC.
