Meh. I always found him painstakingly bland. I get HNIC isn't the institution it once was but I would have hated to see him replace MacLean one day.

Yeah, nothing against the guy or anything but I can't ever recall thinking he ever really added or detracted from a show. Maybe that's what some people want out of their hosts but I think it's fairly replaceable.
I listened to him a lot on the FAN590 over the lunch hour. He was good, better then most hockey pucks who report these days. I would guess he is going to US programming in some capacity.

For the Athletic subscribers, Jonas Siegel has a great one on one interview with Matthews today.  Touches on Tavares, Babcock, captaincy, expectations for himself and the team etc.

I'm not one to typically post big, exclusive scoops from paywall'd sources, but he also revealed that the team got Marleau to download and use snapchat.

So this was interesting to me, because some of you subscribe to The Athletic, and you posted a link to the article that this article refers to:

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/auston-matthews-id-feel-ready-leafs-captaincy-asked/

So I'm wondering if this is how The Athletic is going to monetize some of their content beyond the subscriptions:  charge for parts of interviews/stories to be published on other media sites.

Sportsnet just put up a best of Joe Bowen. Wet your whistle as you wait for October.

Wow...Sean McIndoe (aka Down Goes Brown) joins The Athletic.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Great!  Looking forward to his writings.

(I've been a subscriber for a while now, and while I understand the purpose of advertising, video content, etc., etc., on other sites, somerimes one would like a reprieve and enjoy reading something else on a different level.).

I’m not sure if anyone caught prime time sports today, but Brian Burke admitted to forcing Ron Wilson to play Colton Orr. Found that kind of interesting. Said that’s the only time he’s ever forced a coach to play a player.

Yeah I did. How bizarre. I get he wanted truculence or whatever but he was an absolute liability out there. Burke was such an epic failure....

Interesting take from BB. Sign and trade Nylander next summer. Good interview.

Given Burke's recent track record I'd do the exact opposite of anything he suggests
