Jeremy Roenick Joins NBC For At Least the Olympics
January 19, 2010 2 Comments
From Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago:
“I’m all for it,” Roenick said. “That’s the direction I want to take things. NBC is giving me some opportunities and we will see what happens. Next up is the Olympics.”
Hopefully, Sunday on NBC was just the start. If things go well during the Olympics, look for more of Roenick. But the NHL needs to go one step further and embrace this idea. Versus and NBC need to pay Roenick what he wants and tell him to let fly. The player’s fraternity in the NHL is different than any other sport. Calling out players (not named Sean Avery) doesn’t happen often; that’s where Roenick comes in. And he shouldn’t be muzzled. Ever.
