A common refrain from hockey fans coming out of the lockout was “the NHL should make the Center Ice package free.” That was great in theory, until you consider that the NHL is a gate-driven league and giving fans more reason to stay home probably wasn’t going to happen. But, they did knock it down to $60 from last season, when it was $172. When you consider that number has to be pro-rated to 48 games per team instead of 82, it’s still a 40% discount, which ain’t too shabby.

(UPDATE: GameCenter Live is apparently available for $50.)
