J-Mill's Choice: Bigger Screen or HD?

With the regular season fast approaching, I have a VERY serious decision concerning my hockey watching.  My personal TV is an LCD screen, and for the first time since I moved out of the parents' place I have a number of HD channels .  Plus, as we all know, watching hockey in HD is the next best thing to being there.  However, there are a couple flies in the ointment in this regard.  A very philisophical debate follows the jump.   

1) My roomate's TV is 27" to my 19".  The TV we both use most of the time (okay, 'I' use - his girlfriend lives nextdoor so he's usally over there) is much bigger with better sound.  And since the couch is all the way on the other side of the room, it's harder to see the smaller TV, even in HD.  And after all, what good is sharpness if it appears less sharp from across the room? 

 

2) My LCD Screen is connected to my computer.  Because my laptop screen blew out for whatever reason a little less than a year ago (I kinda wish I was a Mac now), I've since been forced to connect it to an "external monitor," aka, my LCD screen.  In fact, that's why my mother bought it for me in the first place.  So should I watch games in HD on this screen, I will be unable to be apart of Game Day Threads here on Game Time.  (And for the record, the only GDT I've missed so far this pre-season was last night's loss to Dallas - coincidence?  I think not!)  Then again, there IS mobile commenting this season, and while my phone does get internet, it's not that great at it.  It's a BlackJack, but I like to call it a Crapberry. 

 

So with these things in mind, I need some advice.  For the record, since I got HD cable, I've continued to watch Cardinal games on the larger TV, but HD doesn't really do that much to make baseball better to watch on TV.  Obviously not all the games this season will be in HD, so there will be times I won't have to choose.  But I'm wondering what you guys all think.
