Correct me if I'm wrong...
The only Canadian players:
- Bell (owns CTV which owns TSN, +)
- Rogers (Sportsnet, +)
I don't see any significant changes in the next deal as it pertains to CBC.
With the addition of Rogers having a national cable sports channel now (Sportsnet1) in addition the their regional channels, they may become an owner of an exclusive national night of hockey as well if they bid high enough... as some have mentioned, a Sunday night possibility... but i know CBC has done Sunday broadcasts recently as well.. so we are more likely talking about a weeknight.
The main thing to change with the next deal... the total revenue coming back to the NHL..
