24 Cups all-time, you tell me.

So I think that makes 11 Cups all-time for Detroit, tied for second with Toronto. I think....I think that they have a somewhat reasonable chance of surpassing the Maple Leafs.

But I'm watching NBC, and it's from Detroit of course, and they too continuously broadcast "Cup comes Homes"

Are you going to the parade April? Have fun, if so - and bring some water, it's supposed to be a scorcher!
Ok, so Detroit is the American equivalent of the Canadian hockey dynasty. Seriously, though, it has been one hell of an 11 years... Ups and downs, but the first one was the sweetest (and most bittersweet...).

Considering the amount they make on ad revenues it seems like a drop in the bucket to me
Is the President of CBC also the Pres of the Leafs?

I think so...

No parade for me... Had to work and also I was at the one in 97 and almost died from sun poisoning so I wasn't exaclty jumping at the chance to risk it again, lol.

Looks like it was an awesome day, though. A friend of mine works downtown and she sent me a pic of one of the players (couldn't tell who from my phone) holding the Cup above his head.

HNIC song deal falls through

Negotiations to keep the Hockey Night in Canada theme song have collapsed, meaning the program is now in search of another anthem.

Copyright Music & Visuals, the Toronto agency representing the song's composer, Dolores Claman, said on Friday that the deal had fallen through.

That news came as a surprise to the CBC, said Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports.

"We're disappointed, as many Canadians are," Moore said, adding he found out about the deal falling through from CBC News.

"We have no real idea why the deal fell apart," he said. "We're not sure why because the other side hasn't communicated with us.

"You have to ask the other side what happened."

Copyright Music & Visuals said it had offered the public broadcaster a chance to renew its licence to use Claman's song - a staple on HNIC since 1968 - on terms that were "virtually identical to those that have existed for the past decade."

Previously, each use of the song cost the CBC about $500, the agency said.

After the first two years of a new agreement, the rates would rise about 15 per cent, an increase Copyright Music & Visuals president John Ciccone called an industry standard.

A call made to Ciccone by CBCSports.ca was not returned Friday.

Claman, who has written about 2,000 jingles over her career, is also credited with the Ontario theme A Place to Stand, which she co-wrote with her husband Richard Morris in 1967.

Contest for new theme in works

Moore said Friday the two sides had agreed upon a price, but added an "unfortunate set of circumstances," including an outstanding lawsuit, hovered over negotiations.

A lawsuit filed against the CBC in late 2004 by the composer alleging that the broadcaster was overusing the Hockey Night in Canada theme has not been settled. Copyright Music & Visuals says the litigation hasn't interfered with the CBC's use of music, nor was settlement of the suit a condition for the proposed new licensing agreement.

"We really can't do business with a lawsuit hanging over our heads," Moore said. "We feel that we've done everything we possibly can."

CBC Sports will now move on and launch a new national contest in conjunction with Nettwerk Music Group to find a new theme song, he said. Canadians will be invited to write and record an original song for Hockey Night in Canada, with fans and a jury of experts choosing the best new composition.

The winner will receive $100,000 and proceeds from any royalties will go to minor hockey across the country. More details on the contest will be revealed in the next week.

"We expect a lot of terrific music, and we expect that the new theme for Hockey Night in Canada will be as iconic as the last two themes have been," he said.

Earlier on Friday, Liberal heritage critic Denis Coderre told reporters in Ottawa that Conservative Heritage Minister Josée Verner must defend one of Canada's most famous musical traditions and do everything possible to ensure the CBC continues to broadcast the theme.

"The Hockey Night in Canada theme is a part of Canada's culture that goes beyond sport," Coderre said. "If the minister wants to show that she cares about Canadian heritage, this is her chance."

I think CBC will succumb to public pressure, just like they did with the whole Ron Maclean thing a couple years ago...

Seems like it! Apparently they're backpedalling and saying "Oh, it might be worth one last effort."

Hockey Night song dispute going back to mediator

I hope it works!

The Cup's already been dented and Hasek's retiring today.

Maybe it's time for that offseason thread now...

He has said in the past that he would like to play until he's 50, but also said that Gordie Howe's record of playing until 52-years-old is safe.

Gah, but he didn't even play in the finals...strange...

Is it possible this is something you're wrong about too?

Well, CTV has won the rights to the hockey theme. So much for the CBC...

CTV acquires exclusive rights to 'The Hockey Theme'

It will be weird to hear it on a different station, that's for sure!

He didn't play in the finals because he pulled something in the Dallas series, and even though he declared himself fit to play, Babcock decided to use someone else.

I'm almost certain I'm not wrong about this.
