The TNT Analysts

from Chris Bumbaca of USA TODAY,

The conversation began on a serious note – prescription medication use in the NHL – and ended nearly six minutes later with Wayne Gretzky telling stories about playing exhibition games in San Antonio, Texas.

Nobody will accuse the Turner Sports NHL studio team of Gretzky, Anson Carter, Paul Bissonnette and Rick Tocchet, with host Liam McHugh, of being uninteresting.

What could have been a segment during an intermission on a Tuesday or Thursday night this NHL season provided an example of the breadth of their insights, and the potential for the team, which will draw natural comparisons to the network's iconic "Inside the NBA" studio show.

"There really aren't that many topics that are going to be off-topic for us," Carter said. "If it’s controversial, we’ll address it. We’re not looking for it, but we’re not running from it either."
