"The sport has long been CBC’s most viable revenue engine. From The Fifth Estate to Arctic Air, who knows what else will be on the chopping block as a result of the deal?"

Poor CBC; They just can't catch a break! Unless they try to appeal to a younger demographic like City (a better outlet for teenagers will help!), they'll probably have to go back to airing american programs to make revenue now! They'll be just as bad as Global! Don't forget, TSN is also being screwed over because of this. Yeah, they stole the Hockey Night in Canada theme but, you have to feel bad for them.

"...And McIsaac said the network plans to keep using the “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song" 

...Actually, I take that back.
