Good on them...

Good for the K as well... these little mini deals should provide them some pretty good exposure.

"They must me pretty confident there wont be an nhl season..."

After january 13th, a note shows up: "This schedule is subject to change". Anyhow, good news: I am looking forward to see, in hd, the best hockey league currently in action.

TSN will wait until it is official I presume, even though RDS is their French counterpart.

Spengler Cup is probably the best it will ever get, Spezza ,Tavares, Duchene, Seguin, Gagne, Bergeron. Kicking the crap (4-0) out of Thornton and Davos at the moment

I'd be pretty confident, too.

Does it say who will be doing the colour on RDS ? I'm sure they're better than Pedenault and that fat Kaberle guy on TVA Sports.

I would actually prefer to watch the swiss league. There a lot of former CHL players there that i remember.

Tuned in last night and instead they were showing some documentary about the '72 Series. I don't speak French so I didn't stick around. I bet the KHL is fuming that instead of being the Spanish Premier League to the NHL's English Premier League (i.e. equal leagues just played elsewhere), they were simply going to be filler for RDS. I'm a little disappointed as I wanted to see what the hype was all about.

I hope they still at least show the all-star game.

I guess there was a clause to cancel the contract if the lockout ends before they air the first game. RDS prolly wants to save some money and they knew less people would follow the KHL cause we have the NHL now.

I am not surprised by this. RDS in particular are not only hockey, they are simply only habs hockey.
