Major advantage for CBC having the Jets in the east this year.
The reason for HNIC not doing a continuous quadruplet header is that the CBC likes to do a live show from where HDIC is taking place looking at the grass roots of hockey after the first game of the day. The Jets are on the CBC 21 times (19 Saturdays and two Sundays).

I agree it will be at that time, it just depends who is telling who to do that. The reason I think it is the Jets telling the CBC what to do is because in the past, the CBC has asked american teams in the Central timezone to start a game at 2100h Central and they quickly refused. Some of the teams decline the 1800h Central start to accomodate HNIC as they prefer the 1900h puck drop.

Sorry about that DSgamby, I do not have the quote option so I do it manually and with multiple windows, I overlooked that. It is corrected now.

But remember those are American teams. They did not care if their game gets shown on CBC or not. The Jets do and they will move up the game to 7pm Eastern.

You are correct, for the american teams it is not a priority and for the Jets it is. They will demand the 1800h Central start and not later.

They will demand it and CBC will demand 7pm Eastern and CBC will win.

LOL. I think we are saying almost the same thing. The Jets will win because they are the ones demanding the earlier start time at 7:00 pm Eastern, 6:00 pm Central (1600h Pacific ) In other words, it is a tie. Both parties win because they want and got what they wanted.

Default Opening night = Ontario provincial election

As you know Oct 6 is opening night and HNIC has a doubleheader scheduled. That day is also election day in Ontario and local CBC stations usually have election coverage. Anyone know what the Ontario CBC stations will do re: hockey vs election coverage?

Considering the issue only affects the Leafs region, I started the discussion there. It is an Ontario provincial election after all. I get that not everyone likes the Leafs, but since it is only the Leafs region and not the entire nationwide HNIC broadcast that is affected, I figured that thread was the better place to voice my concern.

I don't know if it's possible at this point for anyone to do something about it, but perhaps it would have been more wise for me to have started a new thread instead.

Just to be clear, it isn't JUST Leafs region affected. Sens region (Ottawa valley) and Jets region (Thunder Bay-to-western boarder) are also affected by this. However the only game that night on the schedule is a Leafs-Habs game, so best to probably say just Ontario viewers are affected by this.

CBC has hired Gord Stellick to host its Hockey Night in Canada radio show this season. Nabil Karim will also take a larger role at CBC, replacing Jeff Marek as the iDesk host.

Not sure whee you got Nabil Karim, as TSM is reporting it will be David Amber hosting the iDesk.

look for David Amber to pick up Marek’s role on the tv side.

Is it confirmed that Thunder Bay is Jets region. Does that mean less Leaf games?
