from Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star,

As if there were any doubts where Cherry’s allegiances lay, a post-game chat with host Ron MacLean removed them. As the two looked at a replay of what might have been a Boston offside that led to a key goal, MacLean said it might have been offside but added, ``You see nothing wrong with it, of course.”

But showing bias is nothing new with Canada’s most-watched hockey show.

Yesterday, commentator P.J. Stock previewed the Calgary-San Jose game with this: ``Hopefully, the minus-9 temperatures (in Calgary) will cool the big boys, or should I say, the big Sharks of San Jose.”

The CBC won’t get any complaints about that one, but that kind of comment belongs on a hometown radio station, not on a publicly funded network.
