Kukla's Korner Hockey

Watching Center Ice

from Cam Hutchinson at the Montreal Gazette,

Three observations after my first month with the NHL Centre Ice cable-TV package:

1. Broadcasters in U.S. cities are much more entertaining and excitable than those on Canadian networks;

2. Colour commentators for the U.S.-based teams are usually shameless homers;

3. Buffalo Sabres play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret could make a preseason game between Phoenix and Columbus feel like the seventh game of the Stanley Cup.

1. I tend to go the other route, I just want the game described and please cut out all the interviews I have been witnessing while the game is being played.  Save those for the breaks…

2. Most color commentators, not all…

3. Agree!
