    Hockey is bigger in Canada than in North Carolina. No question. You can't even make a counterargument. Of course, apparently there's no money to be made in Canada, which boggles the mind.

    Go Pens.

    DTV must be doing a good job when people are complaining about getting extra feeds now. If RDS is the only feed available, then that should be used. Well done D*! I would even rather see RDS in HD than an English broadcast in SD if those options were ever available.

    Have you never watched soccer in Spanish? At least I can understand what they are saying in French.

    Seriously, though, I remember as a teenager listening to Nordiques games on the radio at night on Long Island. Radio does fun things at night. I called it my French homework :)

    P.S. It's not the lack of money to be made in Canada, it is the burden of taxes. The Ottawa Senators pay more in federal and provincial taxes than all the US based teams combined (I have this from a Hockey News article from about 4 years ago. I know it sounds impossible, but that was what the article said.)

    I couldn't agree more. Watching the Habs in French is fine by me.

    Just FYI ALL of Montreal's games are produced in French on RDS which is the sister network of TSN. Only select Montreal games are produced in English and are shown on TSN and the CBC. To my knowledge Montreal has never had an English language TV contract that produced all their games. I suspect that English language fans of Montreal turn the sound down on their TV's and listen on the radio.

    Well one reason why they didn't televise, cause if you had all your facts straight, you would have known that John Forslund was working the Atlanta/Philly game last night on Versus! The last time I checked he was the play by play announcer for the 'Canes! So Carolina is the only team in the NHL that doesn't broadcast all their games, I seriously doubt that!:mad:

    Well I was watching the Atlanta game on Versus and I saw more empty seats than
    seats with people in them.
    I wonder how long the Atlanta team will be able to stay in Atlanta.
    They have already lost one team to Canada.

    Hard to figure how the NHL decided that hockey would work in Atlanta the second time after it didn't work the first time. Having said that, if they were winning, I'm sure the attendance would be better. In all sports, Atlanta only shows tepid support for teams that don't win.

    Just to be clear, Canadiens don't speak French. They speak Quebecois. ;)
