    HI/O Show guest Michael Farber gives his take


    by TheGazette

    Former Gazette sports columnist Michael Farber – who now works for TSN, Sports Illustrated and NBC - joins current Gazette columnist Dave Stubbs and sports editor Stu Cowan on this week’s HI/O Show to discuss the new 12-year, $5.2-billion TV deal reached between Rogers and the NHL and what it all means.

    Also discussed is whether the new TV deal with TVA Sports will speed up the NHL putting a team in Quebec City, what happens to Don Cherry and Hockey Night in Canada now, the negative impact of the new deal on TSN and RDS, and the rising value of the Canadiens franchise.

    Other topics of conversation include the Canadiens-Leafs rivalry and which player is better: Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin.
