Their "you vote" classic picks in lieu of real hockey games starting next Saturday all feature Toronto, Ottawa and/or Montreal. They even posted NYR vs NJ game?? (Long, slow, clap.)

Things never change with HNIC...

The least they could do is put a few games of Calagay and Edmonton winning the cup.

The issue is Vancouver has not won the cup yet and has a bad reputation with post game riots. If you recall the CBC news station downtown was right in the middle of it last time. CBC does not want to envoke the memories of this bad behavior.

If you want classic Vancouver games on CBC then Vancouver needs to grow up.

The Canucks are one of the most hated teams in the league and this is nationally broadcasted television... Why would they want to continually show a team that everybody east of British Columbia probably hates?

Doesn't make much sense from a national standpoint.

Uhh I think you're looking a little too deep into this.
CBC isn't punishing Vancouver for rioting.
Keep in mind Montreal has had hockey riots before.
Anyways, in short, you're wrong.

If you glance at the thread too quick it looks like HNIC is milfing the Canucks.

The highest ratings come from the East, so they're catering to the numbers.

It's a numbers game for them, so I understand it.

Is it fair to the West? OF course not, but with re-runs, they're(CBC) trying to survive this lockout somehow as well and that's, again, understandable.

This shouldn't be something to get too bent out of shape about.

Do people really watch re-runs of old NHL regular season games?? I don't even watch re-runs of movies or some TV shows, never mind hockey games.

That's the worst excuse ever.

Game 6 VS NYR in '94?
Game 7 VS CGY in '04?
Game 7 VS CHI in '11?
Game 7 VS DAL in '07?

There's lots of choices and this riot crap is just that. Crap.

Most of you should understand that Vancouver has a very bad reputation. I agree with the ratings issue and the east but if people think that everyone has forgotten what happend in Vancouver in 2010 they would be wrong.

I think their other option for the time slot was old Rita MacNeil concerts. They made the wrong choice, more Rita please!

Doesn't matter if we're hated east of B.C. CBC should include all Canadian teams,pretty sure we'll be included as the lockout continues.

Probably the biggest advocate of the replaying of games is Ron McLean, as he so enjoys hearing the sound of his own voice...

The games aired should be based on the quality of the game. Not some misguided patronizing rant against a team that has been the far and away the best NHL team from Canada. Holds the record in the NHL for sold out games.

Grow up Canucks, you just got to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Vancouver needs to grow up. Please. Spare me your Eastern bias.

We are a fine city.

Too expensive? You're damn right.

We made mistakes and so has Toronto by being a city where a group of partygoers gets shot at. That's real mature.

I think your snakes are on to much ether, Doc. Go back to Calagay

The stiffs out east think that the west (and Vancouver in particular) are a bunch of gun-toting yahoos who haven't figured out running water and are too busy embracing hemp products.

Good luck trying to influence their choice of broadcasts.

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.
