If tsn gets theyre hands on HNIC they will only make it Hockey night in toronto which is hard to beleive that they can make the program even more pro leaf.
I would think most of the commentators on CBC have an out clause in their contracts if the CBC lost hockey, similar to John Madden leaving CBS for Fox back in the day, and now leaving ABC for NBC after losing MNF. Ron MacLean, Don Cherry, Bob Cole and others would be welcomed as TSN wouldn't have enough guys to do all the games CBC carries plus their own weekday games.

That said Cherry, Cole, and Neale are not young men anymore, they might take the network change as their time to ride off into the sunset.

Who knows?? Its all just speculation on my part.
