Someone needs to have a discussion with the people at TSN as to what the word "marquee" means.

CHL games would not be an option as sportsnet has already extended their agreement through 2026.

This could be good for university sport as well possibly the AHL. Their Canadian TV deal is usually year to year.

I don't know where it's worth posting to, but advanced stats guy Tyler Dellow (@mc79hockey) has been hired by the Oilers. Congratulations to him, and I hope he still puts out thoughts on his Twitter feed.

LOL...... they announced there's gonna be a statue in front of the ACC representing Leafs from all eras... Sun comments are hysterical, the sort of thing I'd expect to read here:
"Modern day one will be an orange cone"
"The same orange cone we're currently paying 7 million a season?"
"Doesn't matter, it's still gonna be moving faster than any current Leaf"

THN Yearbook has all CDN teams missing playoffs this season, except Habs.  Hard to argue with that.

And the Habs aren't a lock either.

Yup. Still kind of crazy that 6 of the 7 finished in the bottom-10 last season.

Sorry the Loafs will surprise if Bernier and Kessel stay healthy. They finally have some folks whom can forge a good chemistry, also helps with Molten and the Freezer are gone.

According to @yyzsportsmedia, Paul Romanuk and Greg Millen will be doing the Leafs non-Saturday games on SN. Expect Gord Miller on TSN.

Must say I like that.  Not a Millen fan, but will be great to hear Paul Romanuk again on a consistent basis.

So SN uses Joe Bowen last year for the regional games but doesn't use him this year? That's stupid - unless they want to get away from the homerism (that I don't think is as bad as most).

Millen just makes me gag. Not a fan of Romanuk based on his Spengler Cup work but it's not like I have to listen to a Mark Lee or someone as bad as that.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Keeping Millen and canning Bowen is a travesty.

I think Romanuk is pretty good so I don't mind the change. I'll add to the chorus that doesn't get Millen being kept around though.

I'd just absolutely love to see some sort of assessment or report card Sportsnet made of Healy. It really seems like nobody, and I mean nobody, likes the guy.

Nice to see Johnson and Pang get picked up. They did good work at TSN.
