    Wow I thought it would have been Chris Cuthbert calling these games, because it seems he is TSN’s unofficial #1 play by play guy now.

    • Ryan says:

      I recall reading once that TSN normally hands out assignments based on seniority (an exception being that Cuthbert had it in his contract when he jumped from CBC that he’d get to call any Olympic gold medal games). Explains how Miller gets the prime series as well as quite a few of their non-hockey moves.
