YMMV: Hockey Night in Canada
  • Broken Base: Don Cherry. He's either a broadcasting legend or an insane old man
  • Creator's Pet / Wolverine Publicity: Eastern Canadian teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens (and occasionally the Ottawa Senators, all get more screen-time than any Western Canadian team (or American team). Partly justified, with Southern Ontario and Quebec having the highest population density of Canada.
    • The effects of these issues were mitigated somewhat when HNIC started doing East/West doubleheaders and split regional games. But still, the default game will still often be one of those teams. The plan under Rogers will be to televise every game nationally, using a collection of Rogers networks alongside CBC.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Dolores Claman's Hockey Theme is sometimes referred to as "Canada's other national anthem".
