You obviously aren't on the programming executive for TSN. They can churn out the expert commentary and projections for as long as they need while nothing of substance is going on (see Trade Deadline Day). They will review the needs of each of the lottery teams, the new rules for which is a boon to them, as it gives them 14 teams to microdissect instead of the previous 5.

All you need to know about the lottery as a TV 'event' is that it is sponsored by Scotiabank. We silly, hockey-mad Canadians will just keep drinking the Kool-Aid until we die of diabetes-related complications.
