The real shame isn't the CBC not broadcasting any more games but that Bell Media could have enough influence as to get the SRC to abandon La Soirée du Hockey. Yeah, that`s freemarket and all and if Bell could buy amphitheatre, sport broadcaster (RDS) and humungous satellite equipment (express vu), that's their 'god given right' to refuse to simulcast with SRC (or make it pricey enough that they won't have to).

Still it sucks.

La Soirée du Hockey, like HNIC by the way, is about as old as TV in Canada. There was Hockey on SRC/CBC in those years when there wasn't more than 4 or 5 hours of broadcast a day. It's frickin cultural, I can't believe they *completely* dropped it.
