The Gushue story and the crowds is an easy sell and great to watch. Seeing McEwen and their drive towards 1st place overall is also going to draw viewers.



I'm not sure I could have been more sarcastic in my post. In no way did I care about watching any NT games, never mind one against NB.

Lol...in fairness I only picked up on your scarcasm when I got to the third paragraph of your awesome rant.

the only thing that surprised me this week was that alberta only got one game. thats a young team with a bright future, thought they would take the opportunity to show more of them then they did. conversely saskatchewan got 3 games. again, a young team with a bright future(if they stick together) . but why show saskatchewan 3 times and alberta only once

The fact they started 0-3 would have made it tough to show them if you're looking for meaningful games. Generally speaking I'm sure they like to show Alberta games based on the audience, but the fact Koe was Team Canada would have lessened the need for that.
