NBC could have went truly local with the Calgary coverage with Rick Ball/Cassie Campbell-Pascall instead of one of NBC's people. Maybe also use Dave Randorf/Louie DeBrusk for the Jets series. I don't see why they need to use their own talent when you've got the Rogers feed avivable, but maybe NBC wants to put their own spin on as many games as possible.(if this was 2012, NBC would be using CBC/Sportsnet for those 2 series.)
I think NBC likes to have their own team whenever possible. Back when CBC produced games themselves, nBCU used those feeds often, even for some all-US matchups.
Maybe have NBC and Rogers team up in the first and second rounds. Same graphics, but use the Canadian guys for games in Canada and the NBC guys for game sin the States. The Rogers guys could help out for games in the States if a Canadian teams visits or if the game is not worthy of Emrick or Albert.
I'm OK with NBC updating the other game with highlights, but do it the way that FOX and CBS do the NFL- a two-box.
It was nice to see Former Hockey Night host Ken Daniels on the Washington Columbus series. I'd take him over Forslund or Albert.
I'm surprised that Jets/Wild isn't getting a 9:30 start. But of course that could be because of The National.
Not too shocked about NHLN dropping the Leafs- Blues/Avs is the better game.
Ken Daniels did some PBP for CBC at one point- the Blackhawks-Flames series in 96 and Sens-Sabres in 97 come to mind.
I'd wish Kenny Albert was doing the Rangers series on TV, but I'll take John Forslund over Paul Romanuk any day.
However, Peter Mansbridge must be pissed off about having to be preempted for two American teams.
I', surprised that CBC prefers NSH/STL to get most of the country to The National after the game at a convenient time. They hsould be showing the OIlers serie sinstead.
