The Oilers will likely use the other two stations as leverage in negotiations and go with CHED because there are a lot of fans who live hours outside of the city and still come to the games.
Completely bizarre, but I pick up 1260 clearer in Kelowna and area (at night) than I ever did in the Lloydminster/Cold lake areas. At night in Alberta it would barely be listenable, here it's almost perfect.

Fan 960 has better reception in much of Northern Alberta than Team 1260, which is something they really need to work on imo.
