TSN has become everything hockey for years now, want to go all in. Sportsnet has all jays baseball games, so no full playoff series. And CBC is under scrutiny from Canadians for using too much of our money. Can't pay what nhl wants. Saves face with a weekly Saturday double header and winter classic.
HNIC in Canada is a money maker for the CBC. If they lose it they will need to be using more of our money.
