Elliotte Friedman and Scott Oake join Rogers' NHL broadcast team.

I think Friedman was one of the best personalities on HNIC. Although, it's not hard to look good when you're on a panel full of man-children, air-guitar referees and scatter-brained former goalies.

So far, they haven't announced how many ex-NHLers that were part of the CBC will join the new HNIC panel.

I also wonder if they are still making a play for Ray Ferraro to be the no. 1 or 2 colour guy or he signed an extension with TSN. :mex:

"Both Ray Ferraro and Farhan Lalji are staying put with TSN and not jumping to Rogers Sportsnet. Ferraro has a contract extension in the works to be a part of the Toronto Maple Leafs regional TSN television package and Farhan is happy with the network making an even bigger push into football with NFL, CFL and NCAA coverage."

Uh, that's too bad. Ray is probaby 1 or 1a when it comes to NHL colour commenters ... along with (Regis) Pierre McGuire, of course! But at least Ray will still do his regular spots on TEAM Radio ..... :D

p.s. It wouldn't surprise me if there is an "out" clause for Ray to leave after a year ... I mean, it states, "to be a part of the Toronto Maple Leafs regional TSN television package" ......

Now I think the question needs to be asked, could Ray stomach and last more than a season watching and commentating on a diet of Leafs games?

Exactly. 8-)

Hmmm hard to say, Ray... and Pierre... are strange animals.

(Ray is a you-know-wot and Pierre is a turtle)

No chance, Ray is at best a 1b on a network w/ a bad TV-deal, if he was w/ the big boys he'd be a 2C tops. He'd never lead Rogers in commentary.
