Whatcha doin’ this spring? According to Angus Reid, you’re not going to be spending your nights in front of the tube watching the playoffs. The new poll says 54 percent of folks who regularly watch playoff hockey will watch less this year……19 percent won’t be watching at all.
Obviously, factor one here is the brutal performance of all the Canadian teams this year, shutting the true North strong and free out of the post season for the first time since 1970. But is that all of it? I’m not sure Rogers agrees as they just whacked the guy in charge of putting NHL production together just two years of their megabillion dollar hockey deal.
Me? put me in the 54 percent. Can’t say if I have much interest at all in a possible Nashville-Florida Stanley Cup final. And hey, with a spring this nice….I wanna be on the deck or in the Buick anyway.
