    Would be awesome if Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro called the games. Not sure if that'll be possible since they already do Sens games if I recall correctly.

    Chris Cuthbert would be nice too.

    I speak as a Rogers subscriber in which I get Sportsnet for free. Now I have to pay for TSN. And I had no issue with John Bartlett.

    I'm also in the Ottawa region so I'll probably take a back seat anytime there's a Sens game. Amazing.

    Miller is good and Ferraro is great. I would love it if they cover the habs, and it's entirely possible that this will be the case.

    My guess is that if the habs rights are deemed more valuable than the sens rights, then we get miller and Ferraro.... But since this is for English rights and the majority of the habs regional audience watches in French, it's not obvious how tsn would treat this property.

    I didn't have issues with Bartlett either, but the opportunity for getting guys like miller, Cuthbert, and Ferraro call your games on a frequent basis is the best news I've heard around here in a long time.

    As an Ottawa resident, I'd rather pay for TSN tbh, it's only a few extra bucks a month for much better quality sportcasters

    TSN is better but this is bad news for Rogers customers and GameCenter users.

    John Bartlett, who did an excellent job as the play-by-play voice of Rogers’ regional telecasts, is in limbo along with analyst Jason York. Bartlett previously provided the radio play-by-play games for TSN 690 and it would make sense to bring him back Sportsnet boss Scott Moore has described Bartlett as a rising star

    Please let this be true. Being in Atlantic Canada I would finally have a reason to watch TSN again which I pay for as part of my Bell satellite package and hardly watch anymore. Also the hockey broadcast on TSN is far superior to anything hockey related on Sportsnet.

    TVA has national French rights, this is English regional rights. I don't think it'll change anything on the French side of things, they bought the national rights from Rogers. Regional is from Bell right?

    RDS still carry most Habs regular season games. For another 6 years. At $65M per season.

    French regional rights yes. They don't have Saturday games for instance. I didn't know Rogers had the English regional rights for only 3 years. Sucks to be them if the news is true TSN outbid them with Bell ponying the difference.

    I live in the Atlantic Canada as well and tbh I am not a fan of Rogers, I am a TSN man:laugh:I never enjoyed John Bartlett, he picks a name of an opposing teams player and he over pronounces it 25 times a game and then we have Jason York and his post concussion reflections.:laugh: Give me Gord Miller and grumpy Ray Ferraro or maybe if we are lucky, Chris the best in the business Cuthbert gets to call our games, that would be a big upgrade over what we have now.
