By the way, I'm quite convinced that our local sports writers cruise our boards. There have been numerous times in the past on CC when we've been in engaged in discussing different themes, only find lo and behold, that the same topic is now mysteriously being written about in a local paper. As bad as our local writers may be at times, nothing could ever be as bad as being exposed to sportsnet's Paul McClean and Kasparitis on a regular basis... good gawd they're nauseating.


Today's topic is all about getting a tougher guy on the 4th line and that would prevent all the injuries. Not that I agree/disagree but yes I would say local media reads what some poster write here and other places and uses it for their discussion.

Did I miss something last week the topic was trade talk about Luongo being traded? When was this started and was their any real talk this would happen? Maybe in a couple of years but no way would MG trade him now and no way would any team take him with this salary.

Interesting to listen to John Garrett on the noon SN hockey show. He stated that he has never seen star quality players ( Heart Trophy winner ) be scoffed by the folks at HNIC like the Sedins are. At that point Doug McLean agreed and said here are 2 perfect gentlemen of immense talent being ridiculed...again mostly by HNIC and the rest following along behind like sheep. And although he said other team often feel their star don't get respect Garrett said oh year name another Heart Trophy winner that is mocked like the Sedins by the media and M<cLean said that's very true.

Who knows maybe some media are starting to realize they're being lead down the garden path

What I find kind of interesting is that none of the local meda really picked up on Don Cherry going after Ron McLean for his Canuck bias.

Don went after him a bit during coaches corer and then just hammered him after the game because he was super pissed off about the "anti-fighting" discussion.

After the game Cherry sad something like "oh yeah look at Vancouver, they are going to go to the final again this year and I know you are just going to hate that Ron".

This is great stuff and 1000 x more interesting then the crap I read in the paper Sunday and Monday, yet not a word about it.

I think our local guys are a bit in awe of McLean and because of that he gets away with a ton of BS. I remember he went on the Team40 after the Burrows smear thing, Pratt and Taylor both hyped the interview up like they were going to rip Ron a new one but they ended up giving his the softest landing possible.

Bwhaha, pot, is "softest landing possible" code for "thorough tongue-delivered peanut & corn cleanout"?

That was fucking embarrassing and was one of the last times I listened to that show.

As for the media I've had enough of Don Taylor and B--Mac with the weak Paul Morris imitations.

Patterson says: the media will always get the last word, so don't try to intimidate them.

Right the media espouses opinion, whilst forgetting to cover the story. Nothing worst than a pissing match between someone covering a personality and the personality himself.

David Pratt sure showed Brian Burke, amirite?

Sekeres leaves the Globe and Mail which requires sources, research, polish and general input of effort to join the 1040. What's wrong with this picture? I guess Matt prefer's the B-Mac do-nothing-and-get-paid-route. At least B-Mac doesn't depend to be anything more than he is--a guy offering opinions on sports.

Not sure if it's been talked about here (I've been away) but didn't Cherry accuse MacLean of saying - behind the scenes - that he thought Burrows opened the door on purpose in the Ottawa game and that he was diving in the Montreal game?

Be gentle I'VE BEEN AWAY.

MacLean is the one who started all this media hate-the-Canucks bullshit with his attack on Burrows back when imo.

HNIC is gunna be interesting on Saturday night! :thumbs:

I stopped listening to Vancouver sports media years ago....

Curt Ridley, one of my favourite goalies as a kid. That mask is classic.

Maybe so .... probably because Cherry called out Maclean the way we expected Pratt and Taylor too. It took 2 years and Cherry in a fiesty mood for Maclean to finally be taken to task for the Burrows piece.

While we're getting our hate on, how about the intro to HNIC with the CGI players skating around? God I hate that. Just show me the actual highlight clip, its so much more impressive and cool than a bizarre-looking faceoff between Gretzky and Crosby.

As a longtime (and justified/righteous) Ronald MacLean hater I beg to differ!

Any road which may lead to the comeuppance of said scumbag is a very good road indeed.

Can anyone provide a link the relevant Cherry comments?

On that note, I think Cherry gets a rough right from the other hockey "media" in this country. I mean he's an old dude with antiquate views, but he knows the game better than most. And, he isn't a bed wetter, nor is he looking for the next controversy to create. Sure, his views are controversial, but he isn't trying to be the story or create the story.

I like how he stood up for Luongo in the playoffs particularly when he took his comments in their context (i.e. he mentioned how Thomas has the ability to make lots of save he could not).

I'm okay with Cherry. He's just an old dude who says crazy stuff once and a while.
