from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,
...we present our favourite panelists, in no particular order.
Mike Milbury: Knows who he is. Articulates the argument that gets lost in Cherry’s act. Hockey’s a physical, dangerous game. How much of that do you want to take out? Had the grace to admit last season that he’d been wrong about head shots. An argument waiting to happen, i.e. great TV.
Aaron Ward: Still learning TV, he’s brought a sense of humour to what can be arcane stuff on the TSN panel. Doesn’t pander much, and as his former teammates leave the game, he may become even more honest. Doing the Bob Uecker self-deprecation works.
Elliotte Friedman: “What have you ever done?” is the quintessential hockey putdown. If you didn’t play, you can’t talk. But Friedman has emerged as perhaps the strongest and most thoughtful of us Philistine journalists who don’t draw an NHL pension.
