That being said. I agree that the Sens alone aren't enough of a draw even compared to an out-of-playoffs Leafs team.
It is very rare that the Sens are picked over the Leafs. The game LoneSteele mentioned was March 24, 2012. Still, Sask. Man. Que. and most of Ontario saw other games. Looking back, it was March 8, 2008 when the Sens played in Phoenix and were promoted to semi-national coverage (being shown in the prairies, Ottawa area, and Quebec). It was Dec. 15, 2001 when the Devils-Sens HNIC game was promoted to full national coverage over the Leafs-Habs game due to a CBC labour dispute with the camera technicians.

At first glance, our occasional Saturday afternoon games aren't even picked up by CBC.

Da fuq?
I'm pretty sure our first game against the Jets was on CBC.

Try going to Rogers Arena... Lower bowl doesn't do anything! Sens fans at least get some Leafs Suck and Alfie chants going. I once saw some guy reading his book at the game. He paid $250 for a place to read.

If you're an opposing team fan you can expect to get beer and popcorn thrown at you and verbally assaulted as well. Did feel better when a few other Sens fans and I started a 'Canucks choke' chant.

It's just matters to me so I don't have to deal with Denis Potvin for at least one game.

Seriously? Denis is the man, you are for sure in the minority there buddy.

We get to listen to a hall of famer, one of the best defenseman of all time, talk hockey almost every gameday. I consider us lucky

CBC is broadcasting today's game and next week's game vs the Jets in Hockey Day in Canada.

After that they don't broadcast anymore Sens games except against the Leafs until the last game of the season vs Philly.

Really bad scheduling by the CBC. Just 2 Sat. afternoon games with this upcoming Sat. game that won't be seen in Alberta, BC, and SW Ontario. Those areas will get the Oilers-Red Wings instead. In March, 3 afternoon games are on Sportsnet. All the evening games are against the Leafs plus the Philly game.

The afternoon games vs. Jets are nice, but not primetime. I'm usually out & about in the afternoon. Thread subject is "primetime."
