Quoting my own post here but Bobby Mac just confirmed that he's locked into a long term contract with TSN.

Bobby mac was on Team1040 and said he has a long term deal with TSN and is extremely happy there.

Sure, what else is he going to say, but interesting to see if his tone changes after one year of no actual games on TSN...

NHL has released more details on the deal.

NHL, Rogers announce landmark 12-year deal - Deal gives Rogers rights to all national games in Canada; CBC will continue to broadcast Hockey Night in Canada, TVA gets French-language rights
The deal gives Rogers national rights to all NHL games, including the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Final, on all of its platforms in all languages.
...
Rogers will provide game coverage with expanded pre- and post-game coverage beginning at 4 p.m. ET on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition to its exclusive rights for all playoff and Stanley Cup Final games, Rogers has exclusive rights to special events such as future NHL All-Star Games and NHL Drafts.

The agreement guarantees that there will be no further regionalization of games or local blackouts. Rogers has three exclusive windows to broadcast any game involving a Canadian team -- Wednesday nights, Saturday nights (including CBC) and Sunday nights.

Viewers on Saturday nights will get every game regardless of where they reside and certain games involving two U.S.-based teams.

Hopefully this means we see an improvement in the quality of talent we see on the broadcast.

Rogers also has the option to cut CBC out of the deal after four years according to McKenzie, potentially giving them eight years as the exclusive national NHL provider.

Rogers will also build a new "high-tech, state-of-the-art studio" to home all of its network broadcasts.
^ I hope this means better video/audio quality for its games as well.

Bad news for World Junior coverage...TSN will retain the rights, but how many elite hockey broadcasters will still be there to do the production?

In addition to potential job losses at TSN/RDS (on & off air) over losing NHL, CBC will also be cutting some of its staff after this season

I seriously doubt Rogers keeps CBC for longer than the 4 years they agreed to.

For me it's quality over quantity. TSN put out a great product. You watch HNIC by contrast, and its a gong show. Watching guys like Ron Maclean get on a soapbox and preach. It's not for me. TSN brought intelligent analysis pre, during, and post game.

This deal is going to shape how we see hockey for the next 12 years, so I hope Rogers realizes they have to step up their game. It sounds like they are planning a massive overhaul, which can only be a good thing. Having a guy like Kypreos as your mascot, as opposed to someone like Bob Mackenzie speaks volumes. They need to acquire more Bob Mackenzie's and less Doug Maclean's. I don't need to be screamed at from my television. TSN never talked down to their audience or needed to rely on sensationalism.

There's no way Rogers will stream, and I expect they'll kill any existing streams. Probably what remains of youtube highlights too. They're a greedy company (check your phone bill) who has acquired exclusivity.

Rogers was the big winner, CBC not so much as they become an addendum to SportsNet with a four year sub-contract.
David Common ‏@davidcommon
CBC says will be job losses as a result of NHL deal with Rogers. CBC, which retains Sat HNIC games says "Not outcome we'd hoped for".
And:
NHL ‏@NHL
There will be no further regional games or local blackouts. Rogers has exclusive window to broadcast any game w/ Canadian team Wed/Sat/Sun.
CBC partners with Rogers in landmark NHL rights deal -
Sub-licensing deal secures Hockey Night in Canada and Stanley Cup final

Saturday night will remain Hockey Night in Canada on CBC, at least for the next four years.

The National Hockey League confirmed Tuesday that CBC has secured English-language rights to games in a sub-licensing agreement with Rogers Communications. Rogers has signed a 12-year deal with the NHL.

Rogers retains three exclusive windows to broadcast any game involving a Canadian team on Wednesdays, Saturdays, including CBC, and Sundays.

"Hockey Night in Canada is an iconic brand," said Keith Pelley, president of Rogers Media, said at Tuesday's news conference. "It is important to us that it will continue.

"We will continue to build the partnership [with CBC] beyond hockey."

Yuck. Hell no - I'm hoping it's more along the lines of Lebrun, Mackenzie or even Ward.

In addition, Rogers will use its digital technology to stream games on the Internet, wireless and mobile devices, and satellite radio. Rogers will operate NHL Center Ice and NHL GameCenter Live in Canada.

Agreed. I disagree on Kyp and MacLean though - HC @ noon is very good and the most listened to daily hockey show I understand. The reason is the Producer: Don T.I. Panderless.

CBC has no real money in this high stakes coup by Rogers.

Does the four year sub-licensing agreement mean HNIC is four more years and done?
"We're looking forward to working with CBC … to take the fan experience to the next level," said Rogers president and CEO Nadir Mohamed.

The CBC will not pay any rights costs for the broadcasting of hockey games on the main network, CBC said in a note to staff. Rogers will bear the monetary risk and reward of the broadcasts, too — they sell the ads, but keep the revenue derived from them.

Mohamed said the ability to partner with the CBC was a key part of the deal.

"I believe the CBC is great for all of us as Canadians," he said.

Hubert Lacroix, CBC president and CEO, said the broadcaster "was not in a position to spend taxpayers dollars in this game of high-stakes."

He added the CBC's deal with Rogers "provides us with a high-traffic place to promote all of our other fantastic Canadian content during a broadcast that brings the nation together week after week."

Ugh, just watched Sportsnet a bit to see Kypreos and MacLean be unprofessional as usual when interviewing Bill Daly. These guys are clowns.


Although it was funny hearing Jeff Marek say "Back to you Ron" when they mentioned the CBC I-desk.
