    It's kind of odd... Not sure why they did it that way, is there some other TV event they are trying to avoid? 5 is early for us but who's watching this game in Calgary at 3:00 local time?

    Is the Wednesday Oilers-Montreal game a rescheduled one based on the Montreal COVID positives? Maybe they're trying to satisfy SN broadcasting rights for both games.

    If we want to get more out of Dadonov, i think swaping Paul and Tkachuk (i assume Abramov is just a placeholder for Tkachuk)

    Tkachuk is a better playmker than Paul and might work well there.

    Probably because the game would draw viewers away from Wednesday night hockey. We have two more 5pm starts in April, both also on Wednesday. Last season our only Wednesday night games that were not a national broadcast, were in Edmonton and Los Angeles so later starts.

    I saw something about avoiding the Sportsnet National Broadcast in favor of TSN which would provide more revenue.. I could be wrong and I certainly don't know the ins and outs of it

    So I read this quickly yesterday but think i got the jist of it

    Wednesday is a designated night for the Sportsnet TV deal. By playing at 5, the game is on TSN and doesn't violate Sportsnet's exclusivity. End result for us is more regional TV money.

    They did this years back with matinee Saturday games. Increases the regional TV money but doesn't impact the slice of the national broadcast. I remember talking to a Sens rep about it. I bailed on a ticket package because there were so few Saturday night options.

    That makes sense, the old regional deal was on a per game basis, the new one to my knowledge isn't, but I imagine due to the shortened season they won't meet the contractual number of games on the regional deal (I think it's set at around 50 to 56 per year), so this minimizes whatever "penalty" there might be. Semantics I guess, the end result though is what you suggested, more money for the team by doing it this way.

    That sucks about Watson. One of the few bright spot acquisitions of the summer.

    Excited to see Formenton though.

    Yay 5pm
    Formenton at 5!

    Sounds like tkachuk will be good to go and replaces Abramov but I’d love to see Abe in a game too. I think he’s as ready as he’s going to get.

    That's a fast 4th line, could be suprisingly effective

    Yeah I really like what Watson brings but with Formenton replacing him on that line it becomes much more of a threat offensively and it has already been pretty solid in that regard for a 4th line

    He’s been okay. Troy Mann was just on 1200 last week being candid about giving formenton a little bit of tough love over his game. I didn’t expect him to get called up honestly

    Well from the little I've seen and what I've read he's good for a breakaway or two every game and takes some undisciplined penalties.
