What's the rules regarding NHL games?  Boston vs Florida is postponed, so we get to watch Carolina vs Pittsburgh.

 

This is Canada.  Watching Canadian teams would be nice.  Why can't Telus/Sportsnet show us the Leafs/Sharks game?

 

You guys are so bogged down with licensing and viewing restrictions that it comes across to your subscribers as incompetence.  Don't tell me I need to spend another $250 dollars to watch Leafs games when there are all kinds of other teams being made available on your "sports theme" packages.

Telus is just the pipeline bringing the broadcasts to your home. You need to ask the broadcaster (TSN/Sportsnet in this case) why they choose the games they do.

 

Surely you already realize professional sports is ALL about money making......

@ScottW You do realize the NHL decides how their content is marketed and viewed. This has nothing to do with Telus.
