Marie-Mai is only popular in Quebec. She sings for young kids of 12 years old.
The Leafs series is controlled by CBC.

So who decides who picks first and how did CBC get 1st and 2nd? NHL? CRTC?

I prefer a cbc broadcast. Call me a traditionalist or whatever, I'm not a big fan of TSN. I like Bob Mac and that is it, plus, I prefer Cole over the rest.

$ decides. CBC paid way more. And has had the rights for 50 years. Unless TSN vastly outbids them, this won't change. Personally, I hope it doesn't.

Nothing better than the playoffs with Bob Cole!

He get's players names wrong all the time, but I don't care. I grew up listening to him on Saturday nights - pure nostalgia.

As long as she stays away from the locker room... girls don't belong there... /Cherrysarcasm

Anyway it's gonna be RDS for me, except for game 1 (I'll be on a romantic trip with my gf, and I'm not sure that "Nothing says love as a Habs game").

I'm surprised that CBC didn't choose the Canucks series, but a canadian matchup in the EDT timezone is hard to miss for sure...

Only good news about Habs being on CBC is that we get to watch Andi Petrillo during the intermission.

Can't wait for a pre game montage. The only reason I enjoy CBC.

Not yet, not yet, as I plan to convert her to our religion by showing her what is playoff hockey (at the Bell if possible...). She's never been to a live game.

She agreed and she even asked me if we should go to Ottawa as home tickets were gone for the first round and she knows that my favorite Habs games were lived at the Bank Scotia Place with the mixed crowd.

But, lack of free time right now will make us wait until round 2!

Edit: My best "live" game was still at the Bell, but no hockey was played there that night... Habs-Pens game 7 in 2010... By accident I finally got tickets in the BB red row thinking it was higher than the ones I blocked in row J, only to realize it was actually second row before the ice, first row being occupied by Alouettes cheerleaders!

Probably. This is gonna be annoying but no matter who the Habs play they'll be raving about someone on the other team (Crosby, Kadri, Karlsson. etc.)

Yea but they had Maguire who brought the excitement to another level. Hearing him praising the Habs in the Caps series was great to hear.

But as long as we get Bob Cole, i'm good.
