No, the automated system said it was an especially heavy calling period. This is nothing urgent, but I figured I could hold while I took care of some work. All I've heard is some crap music and no word on if anyone will ever pick up the call. I'd like to tell them to GFThemselves at this point

Well when I renewed one of my Amex cards, I was supposed to get xxx amount of points + a bonus, about 12500 total. But my account doesn't exactly reflect that. So I want my points!

Think I'll go take a shower

There really is plenty of NHL coverage in the US, it just rates poorly and is not always National in scope. Interest is waning anually, though, here in the US. Sad thing, as it's still an amazing sport.

9 at night is a heavy calling period?


I'm not sure which is worse: crap music or being reminded every two minutes how "important" my call is.

Better than listening to important music while being told your call is crap.

No - I don't have cable, nor do I have rabbit ears for my tv alas


Bri - the French CBC channel does the Canadiens for HNIC I think...


NSW - isn't coverage still strong in the Midwest/Northeast? I mean, you have the Original Six cities in there, plus places like Buffalo, etc who are pretty hockey crazy As a Cdn though I find it hard to comprehend places where *playoff games* don't sell out (Not to mention the NHL continually putting teams where there's no snow just to try to grow the US market... but we won't get into how much of a idiot Bettman is )

I never got the "your call is important to us". I hung up 5 minutes ago. They are supposedly opened til 1:00am EST. Maybe I'll try at 12:55 EST

Shower has been delayed due to the washing machine being in use. Thwarted again!

Drea - french CBC has apparently stopped covering the hockey games. Don't ask me why.
Just another reason to hate the french I guess.

Actually, that might be a refreshing change.

TV ratings are strong in Philly, NY (Rangers, not Isles or Ducks), Carolina lately, Red Wings, Stars rate well actually....and maybe 1-2 others...that's ratings...but, all domestic teams have fairly comprehensive local cable coverage, as well as some over the air coverage. On the whole, though, NHL ratings were down on a local, overall basis.

The NHL expanded way too quickly, and they pay the price for it annually.
