I think TVA getting any Canadiens games is a pipe dream. Considering Bell actually owns a part of the Habs, they won’t be giving up any broadcasting rights to anyone else. What i fully expect is TSN & RDS trying to grow the Habs brand even more (though, not sure how that is possible with RDS). Why do you think TSN started showing Habs games in English once the new ownership was in place? Rogers currently owns the local broadcasting rights for all the other Canadian teams (not sure about Winnipeg though), so Bell will push the Habs hard to remain a player in the NHL broadcasting sphere in Canada. No way they’ll want to lose any dominance they currently have in PQ.
