    Should be a good one tomorrow! We’re getting massive coverage of the game tomorrow in Canada. It’s live on CTV, TSN, Sportsnet, V, RDS, and many other multicultural language channels. And of course NBC. Not sure why TSN and Sportsnet are showing it when everyone gets CTV. They might as well have TSN2 show it while they’re at it. And ESPN Classic too.

      I asked that question a few weeks ago on this blog too, Chris, and the answer I was given is that some people prefer TSN’s HD feed to CTV’s.

      Meh – I don’t see it. I imagine they’re all going to be using the same feed, the same technology, the same everything, so I’m with you: I don’t get it.

    It is about eliminating all (or as much) sports competition as possible to create what will be the most watched anything ever on CDN TV.

    after watching these games, I think NBC needs to have a studio setup like what they used for hockey instead of whatever that is with Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury. Even involve the same people in that studio they used at the Olympics. The intermission report was so much more watchable here than for the NHL on NBC.
