As much as I loved the action tonight, I really had trouble watching the game due to Crawford and Hughson. This is supposed to be Hockey Night in Canada, not Hockey Night in Fucking Toronto. I fully expected Hughson to be straight down the middle but to me it is now obvious that the CBC mandates their commentators to be pro Leaf. I thought last week against the Habs was brutal, but this week was even worse.

Fuck Jim Hughson, fuck Marc Crawford, fuck Don Cherry and fuck the CBC.


That's what makes the win so much sweeter.

I have two aussie friends who support the leafs (one lives in TO now). Both got stuck in talking smack before the game. I'm gonna enjoy this.

The important question is whether the Punjabi hockey commentators are Pro Leaf or independent?
I wonder if they'll disallow the whole game because of the distinct ass-kicking motion the Canucks used on the Kings? - Brian CC

Congratulations on the new job dave, try not to fuck it up this time eh? - UKCanuck

I'm at a loss as to how either commentator was pro-Leaf tonight? I guess I just didn't notice it while I was busy savoring our superiority. That said screw all the Leaf fans in GM Place, puts a damper on our victory every time.

Pat self on back. I got the score right and Wellwood right. Other scorers not so much, but what the hey.

The commentators were not THAT bad, it wasn't like Cole, Cherry and Neale.

It was obvious that the commentators were hoping for a Leafs come back and constantly praising the Leafs. The talk was non stop about what the Leafs do good and so on and so on.

When there's in only one Canadian team playing the HNIC's national game, I understand a little bias towards the Canadian team playing. But when there's 2 Canadian teams in the mix, in no way should there be any bias on Hockey Night in Canada.It's a national telecast, not a regional showing. I actually told me dad that I wanted Bob Cole to do the game it was so bad.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

If Toronto hadn't got that last goal I would've been pretty much spot on.

I got Daniel and Wellwood as scorers (and picked O'Brien our other defensive defenceman instead of Mitchell), Demitra had 3 assists instead of two and Nycholat played just fine.

Way to ruin my incredible prediction Stajan.

I agree about the T.O bias. I was quite surprising to me given who the commentators were. It seemed all they did was ass kiss the Toronto players even when we were doing the scoring. Instead of......"Schenn got his ass handed to him," it was "good for him to stand up for his team mates" barely even mentioning the other combatant. damn that pisses me off, 'specially from Hughson.
As another poster said, gotta toe the company line.
Silly me I thought it was Canadian broadcasting not Toronto broadcasting. Obviously I was wrong.
Anyway, loved the result!!
