Please Help Fellow Sens Fans!

Maybe they have psoted their schedule elsewhere, but according to their website CBC has not determined where they are going to show Sens games. Obviously this is a cause for concern for us Sens fans in the GTA and around the rest of Canada. Please help us out by compaining to the CBC that they should insure that the game is covered on basic cable or that they directly cover the Sens game. Also if you know of their prominent HNIC sponsors, please post their complaint website and post to them. The following is the Sens Contact Us website link...

Thanks for your assistance!

The Toronto Star today mentioned that Eastern viewers would definitely see the Tampa-Ottawa game.

No need to worry! Not even the CBC is dumb enough to show Oilers games over Sens in Eastern Canada.

Well that is good for me, but they should have both games on basic cable. I mean we do have fans in Alberta (on this board) and they should be able to watch that game on tv over two american teams.

... They will be able to. (Am I answering your question?) Eastern Canada will see the Sens game, Western Canada will see the Oilers game.

Actually you misread what I said. I was saying that the people in the West will not be able to watch the Sens game, but will rather get the Oilers game and a game between two American teams (on TSN presumably). I have no problem with CBC taking the Oils game but they should find another channel to show the Sens game in the West and the Olis game in the East. Surely TSN would rather the Canadian teams.

Doesn't matter - being wrong won't stop him from trolling.

According to William Houstons column in the Globe today showlng the ratings, Ottawa is doing pretty good even out drawing the Habs and Flames. Considering that the only air time Ottawa is given in the regular season on HNIC is when they are playing the Leafs, that's pretty good.

In fact, though maybe down a bit from last year,its pretty clear that despite no Leafs or Canucks, there has been no melt down in the viewership. Despite Houstons spin (he compalins that there was insufficient discussion on the Leefs/Quinn firing on the Hotstove segment and comments beside each figure that the ratings were better last year when the Leafs were in),play-off ratings are pretty good despite a year off and teams from the two biggest Canadian TV markets not making post season.
