TSN: Center of the hockey universe

http://tsn.ca/ (hockey nation poll at the right)

Damn, we can't let Ontario win this one, or we won't hear the end of it.

Vote Quebec!

Nothing out the ordinary TSN only caters to the Leafs as if they are the center of the hockey universe, so Ontario having the lead doesn't shock me.

what the hell is the point to that poll???

first of all, everybody would be homers in that kind of poll..

1- Ontario has more people than all the other places
2- In Quebec, a huge part of the francophones don'T watch TSN and don't go on their site. Because of that, you have many votes impossible to get.

it's like if we did the same poll on RDS. 95% of the votes would be in Quebec. That's not serious at all.

Montreal is the center.. not Quebec so the poll is false anyway.

lol it's not like the survey is intended to reflect the population on the whole. There's actually a disclaimer saying as much. The surveys are intended to draw people to the page.
Guess what? It worked!

I'm from Ontario. So I'll vote for Ontario!

After all, Ontario is home to some of the greatest hockey fans a.k.a Ontario-born Habs fans.

? I'm sorry but without Montreal the NHL wouldn't look the same as it is today. Montreal basically started the NHL and was the foundation of the league for decades...when years past, it changed a bit but still.

Who cares?

Almost the entire league played last night, the Habs won, there was some rough stuff in the final minutes of the Caps v. Thrashers game (Vishnevski got beaten to a bloody pulp my Brashear) and we're supposed to be concerned about some meaningless poll on TSN.

I'll be the voice of reason. No hockey universe could leave out Montreal OR Toronto. And most of the players come from small towns anyway.

LOL! Check out "Montreal's" addition to todays Ice Chips:
Quote:
Montreal Canadiens: Flyers captain Peter Forsberg was scratched from the lineup. He missed practice on Tuesday because of a stiff lower back and is day to day. Forsberg was injured when he hit the boards during Monday's loss to Pittsburgh. He slipped into the boards when his ailing right foot, which has caused him so much trouble this season, gave way. The team continues to search for a solution for Forsberg's surgically repaired right foot. - Phillyburbs.com
Would this count as TSN reporting a trade between Philly and Montreal?
