Nothing's really changed for me, except there appears to be much more variety in the games I can watch. I rarely watched the pregame or intermission crap. I think there were 7 or so games covered on Saturday, whereas in the past there was two or three.

I think the only segment I regularly tuned in to watch was any Canucks related After Hours interviews.

I'm with herb in that I don't watch much (any) of the pre/post/during game talking head stuff but IF I do watch a game the one thing that's gonna piss me off is the play calling/color commentary.

How can there be so may lousy NHL play by play/color guys on TV?

There's guys on this (other) goddamn hockey talk message board that could do a better color job than ex-pros for Crissakes.
A different goddamn hockey talk messageboard!

This.

The good ones that are out there (Hughson, Cuthbert, Shorthouse, Reaugh) don't seem to work nearly enough, either.

At least I haven't heard Mark Lee or Kevin Weekes...yet.

The HNIC characters are still trying to do their thing over at Sportsnet. Even when it's not HNIC.

Scott Oake had an 'interesting' first intermission interview last night with Clayton Stoner of the Ducks.
Do you have extra motivation playing against old team mates like Bonino ?
I wasn't Bonino's team mate last year. I didn't play for Anaheim.

Thank you Clayton Stoner. :thumbs:

Actually, kinda sounds like The Dude wrote this script. He certainly was pushing for Ritchie way over Nylander.

Missed the first intermission, thanks for sharing...

Time for old Scotty to call it quits!

Nowhere to go but up for Sportsnet...

Cherry goes out of his way tonight to portray Miller as a douch on C-word's Corner.

Time to cut his CC down to 4 minutes....

what did he say?
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

He showed a clip of Miller getting scored on... and Miller telling Richardson to stop screening him.

Then he shows a clip of some defenseman saving a goal... and his goalie thanking him.

lol oh, yeah Cherry is 80 yrs old - time to retire, it'd be fitting if he choose his successor on HNIC imho.

Sportsnet would hire some hipster or something.

Deal isn't look so good now, apparently.

Also, Ron isn't going to be hosting any games, his job will be to make sure Cherry's straight jacket is firmly secure throughout the playoffs. :cry:

The great thing about now is that when the OTT/MON game goes into OT, Rogers will switch the Canucks feed over to another channel so we don't miss any of the pregame show and fans outside of BC/ALB can watch the whole game rather than wait for the first one to finish.

Speaking of the draft, I can see Connor McDavid with the Flames, which I'd be ok with as long as we win the Cup before they win their 2nd. ha.

I'm just tired of American teams getting all the Canadian generational talents.
well calgary won't win the cup this year most likely and aren't getting mcdavid. win-win sitution
