    Does anyone know when the NHL TV schedule comes out?

    Who is showing games this season in Canada? CBC, TSN, Sportsnet have all shown games in the past but I have not seen anything from them as of yet.

    Anyone know anything?

    I emailed sportsnet (Canada) and they responded that they will be releasing their schedule sometime around mid-September. I would imagine CBC and TSN will be doing so at very close to the same time.....

    As far as I know, all three networks will be continuing coverage.

    All the networks continue to fine/refine the schedules. The lateness of the OLN deal in the US has played a role in the delay.

    TSN just posted theirs.
    "TSN welcomes back the National Hockey League with a comprehensive 2005-06 national broadcast schedule featuring 71 regular season games, the first three rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, 42 games featuring Canadian teams and four all-Canadian match-ups."
    Here's that article, it has a link to their full schedule in it: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?ID=135208&hubName=nhl

    wooohooooo 4 Islanders games on the TSN schedule. I give them credit for picking up 1 rangers/islanders game. They also smart picking up Islanders/Ottawa(Yashin and all). Hopefully they pick up a few more Islanders games because I live in the "leaf region" and they usually have tons of leafs games during the season.

    To be honest I think this is a misconception, because TSN often plays games at the same time as leaf games are on CBC or Sportsnet or whatever, and also because most people will only tune into TSN for a Leaf game. I live in "Leaf region" and I don't really associate Leaf games with TSN at all. Anyway, it's all subjective. Fact is this year 14% of TSN aired games are Leaf games, which is still too many IMO, but pretty good.

    Considering that we only have 6 teams in canada how is 14 % too much? Every team should have roughly 16 % TSN aired games for it to be equal.

    Even one Leaf game is one game too many. :sarcasm:

    TSN doesn't show games at the same time as CBC and Sportsnet, only one network can show a game at one time, they have exclusive rights to that game. TSN does show a lot of regional Leafs games, I live in the Leafs region and between CBC, TSN, and Sportsnet I can get 82 Leafs games a year, which comes in handy when the Leafs play a team I want to watch.
