    Where are the Wings-Ducks rating we were promised.

  3. BluesFan44 says:

    Benihana — “A spine-tingling rendition of the national anthem…”

    We wouldn’t know, Joe… Versus didn’t show it to us……….. idiots……

    Please show us the anthem in Game 4.

  4. SonicAD says:

    Did see the anthems on CBC, as usual, and they were indeed great.

    Only problem is that the CBC station here, CBET isn’t in HD yet… but I’ll still very happily take that over Versus’s coverage.

  5. Brian says:

    CBC = lights out, crowd cheering, teams coming on the ice, national anthems.

    VS/NBC = unending car commercials and car insurance commercials, start game action between the time the puck leaves the linesman’s hand and it hits the ice for the opening faceoff.

    Its not in their interest to play up what’s going on in the arena. It would get them off their script to have to talk about anything else.

  6. Leafsfan1967 says:

    One of the MANY things that CBC does SO much better than almost everyone else is give you a feel for the atmosphere in the arena. It does make you feel you are there.

    NBC and Versus obviously think we should trust Joe Benihaha’s word on this.
