Evening Line- Scott Oake

"There's no question the NHL is making the best of a bad situation here, but it's antiseptic and that's the way it has to be."

"You have a lot of time to think, a lot of time for contemplation. I got out of my room sick of myself. We knew that we needed someone in the bubble to have better access to the players. If we didn't, we'd be stuck with the system the NHL has got going now for other media."

-Scott Oake of HNIC.  More from Scott Oake by Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Oake continues to be one of the (few) bright lights since HNIC has slipped into the abyss since the Roger takeover - never one to take himself too seriously.

Always enjoyed his banter with the players on “After Hours.”

OT: did I mention how pissed I am about Cherry?
