Kukla's Korner Hockey

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
Najak says Hockey Night, which stayed with the same programming for more than 10 years, needed a change.
“And the thing is, change doesn’t come without some pain,” he said. “If we had come back with [the previous Hot Stove panel of sportswriters], we wouldn’t have had the energy. I’m not averse to taking risk, and the only way to get some gain is to be unafraid.”...
The objective, Najak said, is to separate the show from the standard hockey telecast — to be different yet entertaining.
“This show has to be representative of the people who watch it,” he said. “And a lot of Canadians don’t like being yelled at. I don’t want it to be like the regular sports show. I want to be big time on Saturday nights. That’s what we’re going for and that’s what we’re going to get to.”
