(Tonight's starting pitching matchup must be Debbie Downer vs. Buzz Killington.)
C'est la vie for the CBC: "For weeks, it will be the all-hockey channel. After that, it's all over for the CBC of the last two seasons." (John Doyle, Globe & Mail.)

The Calgary police are warning people to watch it on the Red Mile while the Flames are in the playoffs. Edmonton would like to have that problem.
Roy Mlakar would never toot his own horn, but an awful lot of media folk are going out of their way to say he should remain as Ottawa Senators president. It just seems curious.
