Big Hab fan, but it's only a matter of time until he starts catering to stinking Leafers.

Still anything is better than MaClown.

Be interesting to watch Cherry castrate Stroumboulopoulos on national television.

Don Cherry will apparently be working with George Stroumbouloulongo next season.

I don't think he is. Seems pretty cool to me.

Apparently a number of them have been told to polish up their resumes. Let's keep in mind that new new broadcast deal has HNIC at the mercy of Rogers. Rumours abound that more changes to be made to accommodate this new partnership.

HNIC want to move away from the attempt at over analysis and move into a more story telling agenda.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

With all due respect,

Goerge Stroumboulopoulos would be considered a successful person in life, and so I can see how some of his peers would be jealous of him.......and would not have nice things to say as result.

If we're being perfectly honest, I haven't even really noticed much hate from McLean and Cherry. The only two guys that have made some douchebaggish comments on a consistent basis have been PJ Stock and Nick Kyperios. Aside from his Torts comment, I don't even think Healey has been all too bad.

Kevin Weekes is a dumb ass, while Elliote Friedmann is the goods.

I think Canuck fans do have a tendency to have a "guilty until proven innocent" mindset as it relates to Eastern Media, but I think Stroumboulopoulos deserves to be met with an open mind.

I'm not sure if George will be good or bad. The man has some interview skills but I'm not sure what he brings to the hockey table. McLean at least was a longtime ref and sportcaster and Grapes is grapes.... I have no idea how this new chemistry will work.

Maybe he is a closet hockey nerd and it'll all work out.

Well if they want to move away from the hockey analysis and into more personally, story based segments he could be perfect. I guess it depends if they want to remain the same or change it up. I happen to like his show but I have no dea what he can bring. Anything is better than what we have I guess.

One of the stories I read details his resume. He started out on sports radio where he worked with Jeff Marek, so there is some background to sports broadcasting.

This could be the much wanted and needed splitting of McLean's duties separating conflicting roles of host/analyst/panel moderator.

Hmmm so he's no longer the host... and he completely sucks as an analyst/panel moderator. :eh:

Speaking of MacLean and sucking, apparently they're gonna leave him in Coaches Corner with Cherry's cherries.
