Just my opinion, I have a feeling Bob Cole will not be back with Sportsnet this season.

It’s sad, but based on the games he worked last year, I tend to agree. Bob has been, for me, the standard for announcers. I understand that with age, Bob has lost a step. It doesn’t make me any less sad to see him replaced. I think the time period of Bob Cole & Harry Neale was as good as it gets, in my opinion.

I’m not one of those who think there aren’t any good new announcers, there are a lot, but I’m just not fond of HNIC’s lead announcers (Jim Hughson in particular).

Also, about a year ago or so, I picked up Bob Cole’s biography.. autobiography??..., and would recommend it to anyone interested in hockey & brodcasting.
