Video- The Hotstove Tonight

The HNIC experts discussed what it will take to get the NHL to say yes to the Olympics. If you don't watch the full video, at least catch the short interview with Rene Fasel in the early part of the segment.

I have a feeling and the HNIC experts agree, someone in the NHL office won't be happy with what Fasel said.

Plus the group discussed the Tim Thomas trade and mentioned if the league did a favor for Jeremy Jacobs?

It’s Hockey Day In Canada

HDIC is not on NHL Network US this year, so hopefully many of you can pick-up the CBC broadcast.

February, 2013 – Peterborough, ON, serves as the primary backdrop for CBC’s coverage of the 13th Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada on Saturday, February 9, while communities all across the country are also celebrating the national pastime. Throughout the day-long broadcast next Saturday, CBC brings viewers stories of people and communities who embody this year’s theme of ‘Heart’, including live look-ins from events taking place across Canada, bringing people together through the game we love.

This year’s broadcast begins at 12 noon ET/9 a.m. PT with Ron MacLean live from Peterborough and the Under the Lock Hockey Tournament at the Peterborough Lift Lock National Historic Site on the Trent-Severn Waterway. Don Cherry joins MacLean later in the day as the scene shifts to an OHL game between the Peterborough Petes and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. From there, MacLean and Cherry will be joined by NHL Alumni to bring Canadians a full day of exciting events.

Watching HNIC

January 21, 2013 – What a way to start the 60th season of CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA! Canadians embraced the return of the game and the iconic show on Saturday night as more than 3.3 million viewers watched the 7 p.m. ET match-up between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens, making it the most-watched regular season Prime East game ever on CBC. Earlier in the day, the Ottawa Senators/Winnipeg Jets game set a new standard for Saturday afternoon games with an average audience of nearly 1.5 million viewers.

“Hockey is back in a big way and we’re proud to have connected Canadians to the sport they love while celebrating the start of the 60th season with a new in-studio team and format,” said Julie Bristow, Executive Director of Studio and Unscripted Programming, CBC. “These tremendous audiences are a reflection of not only our country’s passion for the game, but also of the world class quality of our Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts that fans value and expect every Saturday night.”

Bad Review For Hockey Night in Canada Crew

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

A couple months from now, we all may be applauding Hockey Night In Canada’s producers for the patience they showed while allowing the new five-man panel to work through some early growing pains. But hey, we might be raving about Lance Armstrong’s appointment as the head of WADA too, right?

If the group–host Ron MacLean, and commentators Elliotte Friedman, Kevin Weekes, Glen Healy and P.J. Stock–were simply an embarrassment of riches, then it might just be a matter of letting them find their rhythm. But outside of consummate professional MacLean and Friedman, who has established himself as the game’s top studio presence, the rest of the crew came off like the unprepared guy at the meeting who feels like he has to say something, anything, to impress the boss. They were bland and noisy as they flailed to claim some space as their own. It all made for lousy TV.

The loss of Pierre LeBrun is considerable, but this is the wrong response. Look, Weekes is warm and personable and performs well in his NHL Network duties. HNIC clearly loves the excitable Stock, but they haven’t quite found a fit for him. Healy is an acquired taste, but he does have a unique voice. He just needs to find the right foil. Put one or two of them on the panel alongside Ron and Elliotte, maybe you have something. Drop all three at the desk? You have a mess.

One bad show doesn’t mean they’ll abandon the five-man experiment. But here’s hoping it’ll be on a very short leash.
