no it doesn't. it might have high ratings for canda television but that's not where the big money tv deal is at.
They want good ratings and hockeymarkets such as Hamilton, QC porovide exactly that.
FYI, the lowest rated cup finals since the lockout was when ottawa (a candian team was involved). having canadian teams on tv doesn't automatically get you high tv ratings here in the states (which is where the big money tv contract is)
