Doc Emrick to Leave Devils for VERSUS/NBC, Turns Writer Into Emotional Wreck

Well, this is unexpected. Emrick announced his leaving the Devils in a letter to the teams fans.

I’ll say this for now: no human beings were better ambassadors for the team during their years together than Mike Emrick and Chico Resch. Good for NBC, VERSUS and National Hockey League fans that they’ll get him full time.

    dislike. but interesting on the heels of the news that Dave Strader is leaving the Coyotes to focus on NBC/Versus full time. I have a feeling Doc won’t work the full NBC slate that he’s worked in the past, but maybe that’s just me.

    revisiting this story with how it appeared on the Devils website as well as some other sites, it gave me the impression that NBComcast forced Doc to be exclusive to NBC/Versus (like they did with Pierre McGuire and possibly Dave Strader). but looking at Doc’s letter, it really doesn’t sound like that, and I want to trust what I read from Doc rather than be angry at NBC for taking Doc away.
