Right after the All-Star Break, then again after right before the playoffs, but playoffs are included.

Sonick (and any other Canucks) - in case you're interested - the Canadian Embassy is having a get together before the Habs game on the 27th at the Elephant and Castle (12th and Penn, I believe). We'll be there.
 
 Habs are on a roll!! [/b]

Thanks for the info. I actually just called Comcast, Half Season package starts January 8, it is $119 vs the full season price of $169. Would have expected a bigger drop than that.  I really want to see the Blues-Preds game on the 6th, but its certainly not worth an extra $50.
 
 Would love to see some retribution on Tootoo for these hits

 Although the first one was probably clean.
 
 I guess they dont allow direct links to the videos, but they are on this page http://hockeyfights.com/videos/

Sweet!  Good find.  A few years ago I waited until the last month and it was around $50 and playoffs were included.  Don't think I can wait that long after watching the Ducks last week while back in The OC.

Kansas City Penquins....has quite a ring to it.
 
 I wonder if they'd have to wait for a Stanley Cup win before the Kansas city public came out in thier thousands wearing pens jerseys like the Pittsburgh lot!!

Looks like Canada won another Gold Medal at Juniors
 
  America got the Bronze, not too shabby!

I saw a replay of that US-Canada game that went to a shootout.  Amazing game.

Anybody else see this on HDNet on Saturday?  You rarely see a guy in such a bad fighting position deliver such a knockout blow!

That is definitely in the blind squirrel finds a nut category for punches
 
 speaking of hockey, now that I have been able to watch every game, I am pretty excited about the future of hockey in st. louis again, attendance has been picking up, and even though the recent 3 game loss streak probably ended any outside shot at the playoffs, at least they are doing some winning
 
 if everything goes right and they unload their veterans at the deadline (Tkachuk, Guerin, Rucinsky) and resign Brewer, I think they will be a lot of fun to watch next year, top 5 defense of Brewer, McKee, Eric Johnson, Jackman, and Wideman brings a lot to the table, the key is to get some young forwards via the draft or in return for their veterans and sign a couple of free agents
 
 they also have a stud goal prospect in Marek Schwarz at Peoria, so things are looking good

tonight, Boston University won the  Beanpot Tournament.  great college hockey game, based on the third period BC should have won but BU somehow pulled it out in OT.  BU's goalie, John Curry, was simply stellar.
