They have also made a side deal with TVA for French Language Rights to a "minimum" of 22 Habs games and all the playoffs. Nobody is quite sure what the "minimum" means.

Also according to an article I just read, TSN wasn't even allowed to bid .. they were "shut out of the bidding" the article said.
Could the fact that Rogers owns 37.5% of Maple Leafs Sports Entertainment have anything to do with that...
