I was just thinking that if the Sens win tonight, CBC might have quite the predicament.
They get first pick in terms of playoff series to broadcast, but how do they choose? On the one hand you have an all Canadian match up between the Habs and Sens, but on the other hand you have the 2 teams they all but cheer for on a nightly basis.
How can the national Canadian network justify not picking the series that has 2 Canadian teams playing? I'm hoping the Sens win just to see how the CBC handles this situation.
No cbc gets one and two. Tsn gets3 and 4. Then cbc then tsn then cbc then tsn. So I see cbc taking Toronto 100%. Then Vancouver. Then tsn will take Montreal/sens and Pittsburgh. Cbc will then take rags and craps. Tsn will take Detroit Anaheim. Cbc will take Chicago minny. Then tsn la stl
CBC would probably take Pittsburgh/whoever in 4th.
I guess we'll fund out soon enough. Don't see how they'd not show 2 Canadian cities over toronto and Boston though. Considering montreal gets ratings that are the same or better than the Leafs and they'd be playing another Canadian team for the first time, it seems like me that it would be the Canadian battle.
Boston usually trounces the Leafs and would likely be a short series. Whereas Montreal and Ottawa would likely be a longer series.
If it is tdot v bos and CBC takes that series, then it's a pure homer play.
