As long as they put in a competitive bid and aren't completely blown out of the water
, the NHL should stick with CBC. You don't just toss aside a business partner that valuable and with that much history for a few extra nickels. The NHL found out the hard way what happens when you do that when they ditched FOX for ABC/ESPN. It bit them in the ass in the long run and nearly destroyed the NHL brand.
First, you do realize that the CFL has turned into a huge ratings and cash cow for TSN, right?
CBC got the "competitive bid and aren't completely blown out of the water" and we'll still give you the contract deal last go round. I sure hope they don't pin their hopes on that sweetheart deal again. I'm sure the competition smell blood in the water and want to finish the job this time.
