25 Leafs games---Toronto plays on 23 Saturdays and two weekday games
17 Senators games with 14 of them on Saturday, two weekday games, and one on Sunday
15 Canucks games with 13 of them on Saturday, one game on Friday, and one on Sunday
15 Jets games---11 of them on Saturday, two weekday games, and one on Sunday
13 Oilers games---11 of them on Saturday and two weekday games
12 Flames games---all of them on Saturday
So yeah, the CBC does the exact opposite of ignore the Habs. And whether or not I agree with every single panelist they`ve ever had on or not, it`s a much higher concentration and wider spectrum of NHL "wisdom", and I`ll take CBC`s production quality and less politically-driven rhetoric over RDS any day.
But yeah, when my cable box lets me down, the internet easily gets me around any regional blackout obstacles so a big QQ to the uninformed OP.
I can't remember the last time a saturday Habs game wasn't on CBC, I'm surprise they "only" have 25 of 26 this year.
