CBC/HNIC will be completely out of the picture, except for the possibility of broadcasting second tier playoff games, unless they can outbid Sportsnet for regional coverage.
Rogers Sportsnet will continue their regional coverage as they do now, or (if lost to CBC) will show out of market games on a fairly regular basis.
Good thing that HNIC doesn't really need funding.
Yeah, cause that's how successful businesses are run
Not entirely sure what logic people are using that CBC will be shut out of any hockey next year. Or that Harper has some evil plot to end the CBC by stopping HNIC.
CBC won the Canadian broadcast bid for the next two Olympic games in August. Doesn't seem like they had any kind of political wranglings to stop them from winning sporting bids.
