Reports Of Their Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

Great bit of news on a slow day for Leaf fans: CBC has retained the rights to Hockey Night in Canada.
Under a new agreement with TSN, which will be announced soon, the cable network will get rights to a limited number of [playoff] games featuring Canadian-based franchises. CBC does keep exclusive Canadian rights to the Stanley Cup Final and all Saturday night games.
Fans and 'experts' that were hoping to see the TSN-CTV-Rogers consortium steal CBC's meal ticket will be greatly disappointed. Leafs Nation could care less because it means at least six more years of the Leafs nationwide (except Quebec) every Saturday at 7pm.
