VERSUS Changes

from of Greg Wyshynski PuckDaddy,

So the first significant change for VERSUS under NBC is a shift away from using television talent for in-game interviews to using ex-players and/or coaches to not only engage in those (frequently inane) interviews but to offer ice-level commentary during the game. The “inside the glass” reporter role was an innovation under Flood’s watch at NBC.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how deep the changes go for VERSUS now that it’s in the NBC family; and, of course, how puckheads will react to these changes.

Great.  A bad broadcast gets worse.  I don’t really mind Emrick and I don’t understand the hate, but McGuire makes me wanna vomit blood.
