Big cities and small, it's hockey in Canada. I can be in Vancouver getting more new reports on Schneider comments on the lock-out than any news on the Sunday NFL games. I can be in Calgary getting picking up a newspaper with the first sports page reporting on Flames prospect development before I can read a tiny snippet article on the Jay's pitching issues.

I'm just being honest about the Canadian culture regarding the NHL.
Thing is that's because that's out west. They don't lead off the 6pm report with hockey not even in Montreal. Only CBC and TSN are drowning on about this.
