Yeah, this channel will be relatively useless.

They don't have national rights to the NHL, so you won't get any NHL games there except for the Sens. And those games probably used to be available on the regular Sportsnet channel.

Like TSN2, it's going to be for overflow, like random NBA and MLB games. It will let them air a Raptors game at the same time as a hockey game. However, Sportsnet doesn't really have the rights to as many things as TSN, so there won't be much quality events on their new channel. They have the rights to the CHL, but I'm sure that they won't be showing more games than what they surrently do (which is like 5 games a season plus Mem Cup).
