On TV, as you know, the regional rights belong to RDS, which means that games that aren’t on Saturday are played by Pierre Houde and Marc Denis.
Félix Séguin and Patrick Lalime have the Saturday games, but TVA Sports is the NHL’s partner until 2026. This includes the draft, the playoffs and everything surrounding the NHL, including the lottery, for example.
But on the radio, it’s simple: Cogeco (98.5 FM) is where it’s at. That’s where the games, via the voices of Martin McGuire and Dany Dubé (who’ve been doing it for over 20 years), are broadcast in the case of the Habs.
I don’t know what “long term” means exactly in terms of years, but it should be long enough to see McGuire describe the prowess of Lane Hutson, for example.
That’ll be something.
Presumably, the current contract was about to expire for Cogeco. We can also assume that a long-term contract means we’re talking more than two years, we agree.
I wonder how much doubt there was about a change. We’ve never heard of any problems with the contract, and it’s now May, so we’d like to think it went well. But who knows, in reality?
If Cogeco hadn’t retained its rights, BPM Sports would have been the logical choice.
– I still can’t believe Steve Dangle tweeted that. It was such a thick tweet and it’s only natural that it would cause a reaction.

– Good point.
One year later, despite three investigations, the central questions of the Hockey Canada scandal remain unresolved: who are the alleged abusers, and will they be punished? https://t.co/n7a9eVrfRt
