Sens broadcasts this year.

Snagged this from the Sabres board of all places.  The poster wasn't happy that the Sabres had no deal to broadcast in Canada.

HNIC will show the Sens 14 times this season.

Rogers Sportsnet regional package will again include 22 telecasts, with the NewRO pushing the 'local' total to 42 with another 20 dates (neither schedule is set yet). Sportsnet East, which includes Quebec and the Maritimes, will see all games produced on both channels.

TSN's national cable schedule will include four Senators games, including Ottawa-Montreal on Feb. 24. That's the maximum TSN is allowed to show any Canadian team under the terms of its agreement with the NHL.

RDS will broadcast 14 Sens games, but many of those could be overlaps with English-language telecasts.

Add it all up, and it's 60 guaranteed TV dates in 2003-04.    

I think he is saying that 60 Sens games will be broadcast this year.  If so the missing games are the Saturday nights the CBC has tied up and doesn't broadcast Sens games here.  :evil:
