Wings and Pens made it to the playoffs losing that many games last year. :) Barely for the Wings but...whatever. lol

So weird news. World Cup will be on ESPN here in the states, not NBC/NBCSN.

that is quite odd.
ESPN will have to pretend hockey is a good sport for a few weeks.

I thought well maybe cause it's a dead time in sports but it's not. If it was August then maybe but MLB season will be wrapping up and NFL will have started so not like they need it. Probably means it'll be relegated to the Ocho.

I've been wondering if ESPN wants in on some of the hockey money right now. You can argue the league has never been more marketable. every big market has a good team currently, the opposite is true for the NBA.

TMoore4075 03-04-2015 12:27 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
They probably want in but have another 6 years to get a sniff of the NHL so maybe they thought this will have to do. Thorne doesn't work for ESPN anymore as far as I know, so wonder if they will try to get him to do this.

ESPN might be making a play with the NHL to try and get rights back when the deal with NBC is up.

The real shame is not having Doc call those games. Who will call them? Bucci?

TMoore4075 03-04-2015 12:31 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
I like Bucci, but he is not a play by play guy. Levy used to do it back in the day.

lockman21 03-04-2015 12:35 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Bucci calls college hockey on occasion.

I don't mind some of the play-by-play Bucci's done with cawlidge hawkey, but that's admittedly a small sample size.

EDIT: Chris... I got distracted for about 30 seconds before I posted this ^. Meaning that we could have been typing "cawlidge hawkey" at about the same time WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT.

I sure do like pumpkins, Cotton.

I wasn't a big fan of Bucci doing play by play. Get Gary back, do Levy or sign up Doc. Thorne did the Olympics back in the day when ESPN had hockey but NBC had the Olympics so they can do that.

Re: The NHL Thread
 
I always loved Thorne. He's currently the Baltimore Orioles regular so on the rare occasion I check out baseball I get a nice dose of Thorne. I'd say try to get him back, no one booms out "HE SCORES!" quite like Gary Thorne. Steve Levy would also be fine. I like him too

Of course if they can get Doc that's a no brainer

Yeah, great stuff. The guy's voice just booms like a cannon. I also forgot how much I liked Bill Clemente doing color. That was a really solid announce team.

I am partial to the local Detroit broadcast since I saw it that way but this is good.

I never really watched ESPN since I didn't have cable, so my memorable playoff goals are CBC calls. My favorite Thorne ones involving the Wings were these two:

Funks happen. I'm just upset the Hawks aren't playing the Preds again (and haven't in months). Such shitty scheduling to have them play so many games against each other so early.

My favorite games to watch are against the Hawks just because it seems like it's always a hard fought game. I was really surprised that those games were so front loaded on the schedule.

Sounds like Hank is game time decision tonight. He better play, gonna wear my WC jersey.

This is what I'm hoping. They know they've got a playoff spot and are maybe just letting off the gas a little. I don't know. Either way it seems lately that there is just no giddy up in their game. Except for Forsberg, Weber, and Rinne. They all come to play every single night.

Yeah I remember reading about that a little while ago. At least ESPN will be doing some hockey coverage now. May actually grow the sport here in the states.

I had no idea about that post-trade deadline trade rule. Interesting.
