    just wondering what is the relationship between TSN and VERSUS. I know TSN is Canada's version of ESPN in Canada which ESPN owns a small piece of the network but it seems like talent from TSN is all over NBC/VERSUS hockey coverage? so what is their realtionship?

    There's no institutional relationship... they just hire Versus employees to additional contracts and occasionally simulcast their feeds of events like the draft.

    We just saw NBC Sports for Versus sent their own crew to do the Heritage Classic. (Rather than use the Canadian feed on Versus)

    I don't there there's much need to do a second 'cast of the NHL Awards. Perhaps they'll take the TSN feed for the draft, but perhaps have their own recap show?

    Time will tell.

    CBC did the Heritage Classic, not TSN.
