    Why let a bummer group like TSN broadcast these games? (money I know)
    I have tsn over cable and now am in the southern US. I love canadian hockey and the WJHC as well.

    I log on to TSN for my New years eve fix and guess what….. a tag comes up CANADA ONLY and my feed is lost. Some service. Who are they hurting to let a northern boy watch some hockey that no one here will broadcast or even care about?

    Try sending it out and just maybe somebody will see it and like the game. Then it may get broadcast here. Till then just do your job and let me watch some hockey damnit.
