Fix The Picture

from Adam Proteau at the Globe and Mail,
However, there’s no denying some NHL telecasts still appear to be lit via candlelight, with interview sets on loan from the local community cable channel. It’s also quite clear the energy levels of a few play-by-play men rival that of Ben Stein (a.k.a. the near-comatose teacher from Ferris Bueller's Day Off). A remedy for the problem is, of course, an infusion of money from the owners (insert cynical belly-laughs here) to spend on broadcasts. The old adage “you’ve got to spend money to make money” obviously applies, but NHL owners have preferred cost certainty to image improvement since the league was founded.
