Not official yet...but tonight is NOT the great Bob Cole's last game. Hearing he's close to signing on with Rogers team for next season.




Game 6, keep it civil boys.

Good news Hawks fans, Versteeg is out. But who takes his place?

It's not Morin.
It's not Regin.
It's Sheldon Brookbank!

Because the key to the Hawks success the past few years is to put as many dumb and slow players on the ice as possible.

e: Our third line is Sharp-Handzus-Brookbank, I'm sure LA will have trouble figuring that combination out

Are Ceeb games next season going to be different?
Is Ron Mclean effectively fired from CBC after this year's Stanley Cup?

What will become of Jim Hughson?

This demands answers Candidia!

Rogers will produce the games and air them on CBC, with traditionally CBC talent.
Ron will be involved, but will be doing more traveling around on a Sunday night game instead of Saturday nights.
Hughson will probably be the lead guy.

Pia is busy singing backup for J-Lo somewhere in New England

Also they're booked Wednesday night in the Bronx

In any case, Pia is their Kate Smith, so that's a good omen for the Hawks

Also CBC isn't seeing a cent off of whatever hockey they're airing starting next season, so they've predictably stopped bidding on pro sports

They'll have nothing to air except to piggy back ESPN US programming into the Great White North.

The strategy is to just give Kane extra shifts, but extra shifts with Handzus won't do anything for Kane or that line given how he's played with the Slovakian traffic cone all year

i really hate the regional branded channel bullshit because its just a blatant attempt to make people pay for more channels just to get the one thing they want. like how sportsnet used to play jays games only on sportsnet ontario and bc so if you weren't in those regions you had to pay for the extra package to get all 4 channels, then they introduced sportsnet one and started putting the games there thus making people get another channel.

Look at all the good chances the Kings get with Bollig on the ice, he's doing his best to repeat the -2, sub-20 CF% performance he had in game 5. That's the kind of consistency coaches love!

He doesn't hate Versteeg. Versteeg only has gotten as much time as he has because he's one of Q's boys, but his performance was so horrid this past game Q probabaly felt he had no choice. Of course, Bollig and Handzus weren't much better, but Q loves them even more!

e: Better question is why he hates Morin/Regin but I'd rather not think about that right now because I will start sobbing
