from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
I remember the day that changed everything.
It was Sept. 27, 1989, my 19th birthday. Crisp fall day, three weeks after arriving at the University of Western Ontario. I'm not going to go deeply into it, but life hadn't been very fun for me.
Walking through campus, however, I decided things were going to be different. Three people are responsible for that. This is my thank you.

from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,
Why is Elliotte Friedman so underused on Hockey Night In Canada ? While the program promotes former brawler P.J. Stock doing highlights and treatises on The Code, Friedman is typically reduced – outside of a feature on the Saturday pre-game show – to the cherished “What will it take to get back into this game?” interviews between periods and after games.
While understated on-camera, Friedman is capable of an open-ended question in under 10 seconds – without the parenthetical wandering of more famous names. He is still more comfortable in front of the lens than several of the Hot Stove ‘s stock players and commands respect from players and peers. Plus, Friedman – who was recruited from The Score – would deliver a smidgen of balance to the editorial slant of the show that leans toward … shall we say “traditional” values.
