Back to work today and busy catching-up but had to take time to share this happy news:
Changes to Hockey Night in Canada will come sooner than later, according to insiders, the biggest of which will involve announcer Jim Hughson and analyst Greg Millen taking over as the top play-by-play team.
The return of Bob Cole and Harry Neale appears probable, but in a reduced role. Neale said yesterday he's awaiting final word about his status.
About time, says I. Cole's performance has gotten embarrassing, and his pro-Leaf boosterism has always been nauseating. I've always like Hughson's work, from the Jays on TSN to the Canucks on NW and then SportsNet. Millen is good too. Now just replace Ron MacLean with Elliiot Friedman, and Don Cherry with Kelly Hrudey, and we'll be getting somewhere. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
