Excluding a brisk skate on the pond with a couple of beers in the company of friends, it's hard to find a more productive way to spend your Saturday than setting up a bunker in your man (or woman) cave to enjoy nine hours of intense NHL action.
Well, intense depending on whether or not you're watching Bobby Ryan play, which you assuredly won't.
So here's the plan: we lay out CBC's broadcasting schedule and you figure out how best to be productive without compromising your nine hours of hockey bliss.
Let's get started, shall we?

There, I just planned your entire day. You can thank me when you're midway through the second period of the Vancouver versus Calgary game and your brain shuts down from watching Lance Bouma and Paul Byron attempt to play hockey for the Flames.
As avid hockey fans, we will be with you all day, providing insight, coverage, GameDay Threads and probably GIF's to fill your Hockey Day in Canada needs.
Also, be sure to give part of your day to our Canadian brothers and sisters across the network. Interact with Nucks Misconduct, Matchsticks and Gasoline, Copper 'n Blue, Pension Plan Puppets, Silver Seven and Eyes on the Prize as you go forth in your daily online media consumption.
It's Hockey Day in Canada, y'all! So let's celebrate in style.
