Hey, I'm a home grown Canadian boy and i must say that i do love my hockey. Since i will be down under during the first 2 months of the hockey season I was just wondering if Australia enjoys the fastest game in the world and if it would be possible to watch some NHL down under?

Excellent question! I am going to be down under for the WHOLE season so I plan on bribing bartenders with satillite to broadcast games. But I seriously think I might get kicked out of the country for not wanting to watch rugby!! Man I hope there is some hockey somwhere. As for the oilers fan? All I can say is that I am from vancouver and it is a new era for the Canucks.....hopefully it's a good one :)

I've been here for just about 3 months ... meaning I was here for the Stanley Cup Finals ... and you know what, as hard as I did try I could not find them on TV, not even on satellite at the pub (and the Oilers are my team ... it was heartbreaking!). However, I DID see a 50-word max article in the newspaper on how the Oilers lost ... about a week after the fact :P

the only sporting things you are likely to see on tv at bars down under are a bit of rugby, a bit of cricket and alot of AFL(Aussie rules footy)

Well I guess we will have to tape the first 30 games of hte season and then watch em all back to back. OK...maybe not but we will have to find computers to listen on the radio. Lets go Oilers!

There is a senior hockey league in Oz! Quite good competition, Rob Zamuner plays for the Brisbane team. You may remember him, he played for Canada in Nagano. I cant wait for the season to start, Tanguay is gonna snipe the boys to the promised land. The C of red will conquer!!

Oh you poor fool markmac...A Flames fan. That is unfortunate to say the least, I feel bad for you. Oh yeh Rob. I was wondering where he fell off to. Back to the Flames bashing. Well hey now u guys have TWO players that can score. That is impressive. Have the you seen the Oilers front end lately. That playoff money is workin out nice. As you can tell i am a devout Oilers fan. LETS GO OILERS!!!

I was in Australia in May. Go Canes! I did not see any hockey games on TV or at any sports bars. The internet is probably your best bet.

Carolina fan

How could anyone actually cheer for Carolina?
