    Rogers, you paid your billions. However, you have very huge shoes to fill now. Canada will be watching and scrutinizing you now. P.S. Congrats to the LA Kings. #gokingsgo #stanelycupchamps

    Rogers, unless you want the wrath of a nation at your front door, heed my words:
    Don't. Fuck. This. Up.

    cant believe they didnt show a clip from columbus tying it late in game 4 then winning it, that was simply amazing.

    as an american, cbc always did an amazing job with hnic and showing the best of hockey and was happy everytime they were on saturday night on nhl network. i know rogers wasnt the best network before but now that they have hnic and most of the games, im confident with the amount of money they paid they will keep it as much as the same and improve their network better. good luck rogers and thank you cbc you and tsn will be missed.

    Living in Michigan, I have been fortunate enough to be able to get CBC ever since I can I can remember and prefer it over NBC any day. I will be extremely disappointed when I won't be able to turn on CBC every saturday night for Hockey Night in Canada. HNIC's coverage, as well as awesome montages like this that define every hockey player's love for the game will be missed. Thank you, CBC!

    What an outstanding year of Hockey. Countries bond together, opposing players and fans come together spiritually, Teams square off in great up and down action. Congratz to the Kings, but nevertheless I commend the NHL and the TV broadcasters for such a great year, too bad its over for a while.

    Шикарный ролик! Спасибо, CBC. Почти весь плэй-офф и всю финальную серию смотрел по Вашим трансляциям. Молодцы, умеют канадцы показывать хоккей.

    Which is this music?

  • Reply TheUnclerickie June 15, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    This is what we're losing folks. Ya TSN and Rogers will put some good product on TV but nothing will ever be like our beloved Hockey Night In Canada on CBC. If you're approaching 50 like me, you remember when HNIC was the only show in town. You could hardly wait for Saturday night. This truly is the end of an era. Sure HNIC will be on next year for a final run but it will be stripped down and will not be part of the playoffs. I'm sad.

  • Reply Mick Jarrett June 16, 2014 at 5:48 am

    CBC has done a terrific job with HNIC. Sad to see them go. Spotlight on Rogers to deliver more than a cheque.

    Nothing tops the 2010 montage….I'm sorry everything about that was perfect. 

  • Reply Judge1982 June 16, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    I do not and will not watch anything on Sportsnet, everything they do is half assed, I think everyone should boy-cott Sportsnet and Roger's. I know I won't be tuning in anymore. Fuck Roger's and Fuck Stephen Harper

    It all went by so fast. So many great moments. Sad to see it end. Till next year

    That closing image of Ward Cornell sure makes feel old . Thank you CBC for all those great hockey broadcasts .

    Dear Sportsnet….I hope you and Strombolopussy shit the bed next year. 

  • Reply Richard Clifford June 19, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    I'll bet you CBC will cancel Rogers Hockey Night before it begins in October.  CTV will take over the coverage on Saturday night with Radio-Canada airing TVA produced broadcasts.

  • Reply Rob Noxious June 20, 2014 at 7:14 am

    American here… I seek out these CBC montages every playoff year because they are outstanding. The closing montages are always very special and moving and really puts the point on how hockey is produced and presented between the two nations. The music and the visuals always sync so perfectly, as if someone is putting concentrated effort into it. For that, I thank you CBC.

    CBC has always been a class act for many MANY years and I really do feel that there is an end to an era coming about. I don't know shit about broadcasting in Canada but from down here I think much will be lost. I don't know a Rogers from a Bell to a Tellus nor should I but I know I don't like the move.

    All I know is CBC has zero production control from here on out and that is a terrible thing. I'm afraid these great montages are going to die like Foster Hewitt and that is the real tragedy here.

    Good song choice 

  • Reply ckendall67 July 17, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    – Great song choice & great playoff montage as always! 🙂 It feels like the end of an era for CBC as Rogers takes over as national rights holder to NHL hockey broadcasting in Canada, but as long as Hockey Night In Canada remains on CBC, at least we know, like the ol' slogan once said, "The Tradition Continues" 🙂

    BTW, Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings on winning their 2nd Stanley Cup in 3 years! And you get the feeling they have more Cup runs left in them in Los Angeles…. 🙂

    one of the best editited montages ever

  • Reply KONG February 1, 2015 at 3:37 am

    Huge thanks to Looler27 for sharing this.  I wish the CBC would make their whole library of closing montages available, including Ron MacLean's final thoughts.

    And we'll never see a montage of this caliber on HNiC again. Thanks, Rogers.

    Good damn do I miss this. My Rangers going all the way to the cup with 2 game 7s along the way

  • Reply TheTraderGuy May 8, 2019 at 2:20 am

    My brother came by for a beer and I was just starting to nod off on the couch. He jabbed me in the leg and said "You're gonna miss the last real HNiC?"

    I woke up and we watched. We both fought off tears as this montage played. God dammit, the CBC did hockey right – Rogers just doesn't.
