TSN goes by what the coach says and what the lines are at the practice.... don't read it if you don't want to know who the coach says is starting... you can't hold them accountable for gametime changes to the line-up
As for predictions, they are just that, a prediction. Most people in the hockey world picked the leafs to finish outside the playoffs and the habs to struggle to get in. You should take your beef up with every expert who made that call.
Just because a wesite reports what the coach says at a press conference doesn't mean they are bais against the habs. They show more habs games then anyother team in the NHL.
TSN and RDS are probably the best sources out there, so if you're complaining about them, you'll probably complain about everything. TSN simply reports the information that the hockey club gives them (aka Samsonov on the fourth), and clearly labels ANY speculation that might be made by its columnists.
From what I have read, TSN is the best source out there... What they put on their site is almost always right on the money. RDS is an okay source, but they have their blunders (like last year when they had said that Parrish had been traded when he clearly hadn't during early in the trade deadline).
Look I am not a huge fan of some of the tsn article writers, but what do you want from them? Like I get mad at times too, but they make PREDICTIONS. They have 8 teams in the east making the playoff and 7 massing. They predict what will happen. If they were right all the time, shouldn't they be stock market analyst or something that will take there EXTREME talent to a whole new level?
