There is much about the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs that is unusual. Not the least of which is the prospect of Phoenix meeting New Jersey in the “Insolvent versus In Chapter 11” final series. But one tradition has endured into another playoff year: Bob Cole calling games for Hockey Night In Canada.
Not everyone is cheered by this, of course. While Cole still has the booming church-organ pipes, his recall of names and faces leaves a number of fans boiling. On the “either you love him or hate him” barometer Cole ranks right up there with Pierre McGuire and Greg Millen in terms of response. He’s the link to HNIC’s glorious past, but many of our correspondents feel he should already be a part of that past now.
