TORONTO - The CBC received nearly 15,000 submissions in its quest to find a new theme song for "Hockey Night in Canada."
A total of 14,685 entries were submitted to the broadcaster's Anthem Challenge contest prior to the Aug. 31 deadline, CBC said Wednesday.
The network is holding the Canada-wide search after the rights to the iconic jingle that opened its weekly hockey broadcast for some 40 years were snapped up by CTV in June.
Will 'Hockey Night in Canada' be able to successfully replace the old theme?

This, IMHO, is a travesty. And the song will never fit on TSN's NHL Tonight...no way.
It's the Hockey Night in Canada theme-- always has been, always will be.
Unfortunately, greed and stupidity has prevailed.

We will be back to watch games on CBC WHY? Because those idiots at TSN dont know how to shoot a game, and the sportscasters are pathetic, so called experts who are always wrong in their assesments.
