Very impressed with the TV coverage of college hockey this year. About time these sports networks show the sport some respect. This next month should be fun!

Still takes a back seat to bouncyball and football. Fridays during this time of year is excellent. Saturdays suck all season. It's been that way for the past 3-4 years for coverage. They are merely throwing us crumbs to sate us. And yes we, I included, will gobble those crumbs up.

I agree, and when College Football ends, ESPN tries to take Saturday over with bouncyball. The relationship with NBCSports and CBSSports are both good. The lockout definitely helped with NBCSports, but they continue to give great coverage of games.

The increased T.V. coverage is great but does have a downside. When college recruits begin to get more national exposure than major junior recruits the early departure rate is likely to increase sharply.
