The days of Canadians having only two Canadian teams to cheer for are looooong gone. The Leafs ended up with a lot of fans west of Toronto mainly because that was the team they got on TV on Saturday nights back then.
Whole different story now for sure. But really, who cares? Not I.

I am a huge hockey fan but also a big baseball and NFL fan. Just because I am not on here talking about baseball and football doesn't make me any less of a fan.
I know that and I'm in the same boat. But when cfl posts about hockey it's clear he doesn't follow things closely or know much about the game.
We live to survive our paradoxes
Hockey Central can run their program however the hell they like. Who is anyone on these forums to tell them what to do or what items they should run down on the program? We're NOT the directors & we don't sit in front of the cameras!
I assumed the role of a publicly traded company like Bell, Rogers, Videotron, etc, were to make profits. They make profits by selling advertising based on their ratings. They gain those ratings by showing programming that people want to tune in to. They get better ratings with Leaf coverage than they do with Senators, Canucks or Flames coverage. Thus, they broadcast more Leaf coverage to make more money.
You can presume that they are in the business to report on things equally for everybody, but they are not.
