Scott Moore, president of Sportsnet and NHL properties for Rogers, introduced the “top line” of his hockey broadcasting scene during a live telecast from the CBC studios. While the CBC may have been “where the tradition of broadcasting hockey began,” Moore said, he’s hoping to bring a “fresh face” to the game.

 

Hockey fans can look forward to big games being broadcast on different channels such as Citytv and on additional days, including Sunday, Moore said. More announcements to come will include new technology for mobile devices.

 

 

Five-hundred games a season?

This might be a deal with the Devil, more so for Canadians.

Scott Moore doesn't have much time to find his other "lines". The auditions could make for a pretty decent pay-per-view.

What makes him a "non-hockey guy"? Because he doesn't work on Sportsnet? Would you prefer Nick Kypreos?

 

Stroumbo is obsessed with hockey.  Especially Canadian hockey which is why he's perfect for the job.

 

I could care less about his fashion choices.

 

He is known as an interviewer for different sports and that's about it. This has nothing to do with "fashion" a male wearing earrings is not something for prime time TV, when kids and younger people are watching, same goes for stuff like Tatoos..

 

Rogers doesn't know how to create a first class product and it will show next year, I'm already missing tsn.

Ron Maclean was a weather man before he became one of the faces of HNIC. 

 

I am going to restrain myself from saying anything about your earring and tatoo comment...

From CBC:

 

Funding shortfalls and revenue losses have forced CBC/Radio-Canada to cut $130 million from its budget this year, a move that will eliminate 657 jobs over the next two years and take the network out of competing for the rights to broadcast professional sports, the public broadcaster announced on Thursday.

CBC said it could no longer compete against private broadcasters that have specialty sports channels and multiple media platforms. The result will mean fewer sporting events will be covered, including amateur sports. But the CBC will still compete for sporting events of national significance, like the Olympics.

Among the cuts, English Services will slash $82 million from its budget and eliminate 334 full-time jobs.

Really..?

 

I don't have earrings or tattoos and probably never will, but there is absoloutely NOTHING wrong with either. 

This is nothing close to a bad influence for children which seems to be what you are suggesting.


As per the deal, I too miss TSN because everyone with that station lives and breathes hockey. I've never been a fan of sportsnet... havn't even been watching highlights this year just because of how dry it is

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting forwards, then dangles 2 defenceman, and follows it up by doing "the datsyuk" on his victims, then calmly skates back to his bench ,and goes home to his girlfriend back in the motherland.

Let's all hope this Stupid Nadir guy and his evil Rogers rights are going go flop hard. Maybe then then the NHL will understand what a crappy deal this is going to be. Sportsnet flatout sucks, the arguments look forced/scripted and the hosts are a big joke.

Hopefully TSN will get the rights back after Rogers bombed hard f*** them

From CBC:

 

This breaks my heart.  I grew up with CBC and it's my go-to when Wings aren't playing.  Say what you will about the crew, I'll take CBC over NBC any day.  Plus I get to watch out-of-market games, which will no longer be the case.  WOW doesn't offer NHL Network or Center Ice.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
