Exactly.

When Montréal starts being a good team again, they will become a big TV draw and CTV/TSN will be able to attract ratings of one million and more for their regular season games, let alone the playoffs. People should remember that as a corporate broadcaster, Bell Globemedia will be much more sensitive to market needs than a public broadcaster like CBC that just gets its annual billion dollar cheque from the government.

Hockey is a cash cow for TV networks in Canada. Expect to get all 82 games on RDS and many more on TSN and CTV.
