from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

Bob Cole, in his distinctive cadence, called to say that, yes, he’s disappointed not to be calling the Stanley Cup playoffs for Hockey Night In Canada.

“Quite disappointed,” Cole told the Star. “It’s hard to get over it, really. It’s just constantly there. I miss it.”...

“I love the kind of work I’ve been doing, seeing the guys. (Golden Knights coach Gerard) Gallant is a good friend. Was looking forward to at least saying hello. Just missing the playoffs. I miss it,” said Cole.

“I’ve been doing playoffs every year of my life in broadcasting. This is the first time that I’m not involved, it’s difficult to live with the fact that I’m not working. I surely will miss not working the playoffs. That’s the best way I can say it.”

-Bob Cole.  Michael Traikos of the National Post has more.

Spinning Tales With Ron MacLean

from Keenan Sorokan of PostMedia,

Chatting with MacLean is as easy as sitting down and catching up with an old friend. He speaks with an ease that would relax the most anxious person and recounts past experiences like you were standing right beside him when it happened. With MacLean continuing his hosting duties of Roger’s Hometown Hockey in Spruce Grove last week, he was able to provide more of those timeless stories from the sport that binds this country.

Like a quick bit of trivia that hit him while watching a San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks game a few weeks ago.

“The crazy six degrees of separation when we do this show,” he said of recent experiences on the show. “Every town we had just visited was represented in the game. The crazier story is that Joe Thornton is from St. Thomas (Ont.) and he’s known as Jumbo Joe. That’s a bit of homage to Jumbo The Elephant, who was killed on the train tracks in St. Thomas in 1885. Well, a week later we’re in Oakville, Ont. doing Hometown Hockey and the kid who picks the three stars for us, his great, great, great grandfather was the conductor on the train that killed Jumbo The Elephant. That’s just how it goes on that Hometown series.”

Color Analyst Or Not?

Your thoughts?  

For me, as long as fair commentary is provided, I have no issue at all.  I have listened to Cassie numerous times and have always thought she brings insight like only players can.
