    John Forslund’s Back on VERSUS this Tuesday since Dave Strader is going to call the game Tonight with Milbury and Pierre. Wish him the best of luck with those guys tonight.

    Nice to see the CBC using Bruce Rainnie this week. I heard him doing some AHL games last year and he’s very good.

    Caught some of NYI/BOS and found the broadcast to be, well let’s say a mixed bag.

    Intermission show was great. Accessible without being condescending, and they devoted a good chunk of time to a team that’s not one of their traditional darlings (Dallas). Solid pacing, as opposed to TSN which tries to cram every single NHL story into its two intermissions.

    Milbury was another story entirely. I’m not sure if he’s legitimately unsuited for the analyst role or just unfamiliar with it, but this was NBC Studio Show Mike Milbury, and Studio Show (capitalization intentional) personalities don’t work as analysts. I don’t think it’s too much to ask analysts to analyze the game in front of them, but I barely saw any of that from Milbury, who preferred to talk about other teams or the game as a whole or the past and offer up anecdotes that were occasionally related to the game at hand.

    I’ve heard Strader before on NBC and always had a generally positive impression of him, so I’m not sure if this was just Milbury dragging him down or what, but he got ludicrous at times in how easily he’d be distracted from the game. At one point in the middle of the third, they spent about 2:00 of game time (2:30 of real time) talking about Ace Bailey and college hockey and Strader’s only attempt at PBP was explaining why the whistle had just gone. It’s not like it was a boring game!

    McGuire was good too. I’ve always liked him on American TV when he can focus more on the analysis and reporting and less on showing off how much he remembers from every draft broadcast in the past decade.

    The Isles-Bruins game was on NHL Network Canada and TSN2.

  5. Is there any reason why Versus is using random commentators lately? I thought their crews were set in stone before the season.
