Thanks for the insight. I never thought of that sheets thing. I will probably go for the Queen.
The difference between a double and a queen is only 6 inches, but it feels a lot bigger (that's what she said). King is a really big step up, and probably won't fit in most apartments, unless you've gone massively balla without me realizing and getting a huge house or something.

The living room in my new place is pretty big, space isn't a problem. It's just whether it's worth the extra $400-$500. Is the best place to get it at Best Buy?
I love my 42", and I definitely wouldn't go under that, but Adam is right, bigger is better, especially for sports.I got mine at Future Shop, which is the same thing as Best Buy. Probably a safe bet to go there. Keep an eye on sales and shit.

We have a 55" Samsung LED that I'm absolutely in love with, would highly recommend you as a hockey fan getting the largest, best quality HDTV you can afford. As far as a stand, don't buy a TV stand. Buy a nice piece of furniture with a flat top that can be used as a TV stand, with shelves and drawers and such for all your media storage, etc.
Agree with this, but it'll definitely be expensive. I got a decent stand from Ikea (ie, cheaper than buying real furniture), which had 2 pretty good sized drawers, and enough room on the shelf below my TV for my cable box, xbox, and blu-ray player. The biggest problem I found with Ikea TV stands is they were all super low, and I agree with you that something closer to waist high is better. The one I got was probably the highest they had, and it's actually really sturdy for Ikea crap.
