There is some loophole that allows the habs games on RDS to avoid the blackout laws: its a french channel. So therefore the blackout rules don't apply since RDS is you only francophone hockey source. The blackout rules apply to english channels because what the CRTC is basically saying is '' If you want to watch english commented hockey, don't watch *whichever* team, watch the local one ". The CRTC can't black out your hab games because there is no other francophone alternative to watching hockey.

in short, yes you get all hab games
