The Habs may have the most games but the distribution across the country is typical CBC. This Saturday, the all Canadian matchup will be seen in Quebec and Ottawa only while the rest of the country sees Toronto and Philly.

Makes sense!

Yes, this past weekend was typical CBC with the Senators game shown just to Ottawa, the Habs game to Quebec only, and the rest of us had the Leafs.

This Saturday will not be typical!

The all canadian matchup from Montreal will be seen across Canada while Ontario, except Ottawa, gets Buffalo at Toronto. A reality check has hit the CBC.

The CBC's decisions are based on several factors. Ask yourself, who has more of a following across Canada - Ottawa or Buffalo?

The answer is quite obvious. Most of the Sabres fans reside in the Fort Erie/Niaraga > Hamilton triangle. Those viewers (and local Leaf fans) will be able to watch [I]their[I] game on the Toronto CBC feed.

A couple of weekends ago. The 16th I believe. When Montreal/Ottawa was the only HNIC game at 7:00. CBC drew about 1.3 mil people and RDS had an audience in the 900,000 range.

By keeping the Leafs restricted to Ontario (less the Ottawa region). HNIC will get the best of both worlds this Saturday.

CBC has done regional coverage on many occasions over the past few years. Ratings and Canadians voicing their opinions (via e-mail or phone) have finally made CBC understand that ... not everyone is a Leaf fan.

Too bad the CBC did not do the same thing on Oct. 23.
