Interesting. My reading of that quote leads me to the exact opposite conclusion. More passing, more passive play, less urgency, less intensity. That doesn't achieve the same results at all.

My mind has not been put at ease. If anything, makes me more certain the games (if they in fact occur), will be antiseptic exercises devoid of the intensity that defines the Stanley Cup playoff brand. We shall see.

@TSNBobMcKenzie

With Edmonton and Toronto being chosen as the two NHL Hub cities, the question most often asked now is, which of the two will play host to the Stanley Cup final and Conference finals?

The answer, apparently, is Edmonton.

I'd love to see an Oil v Bolts finals. I'm with Bolthed: the play for The Cup with those two teams would be dazzling and nail biting.

Tracy signed a contract extension to stay in Carolina.

I’ve never listened to the two of them, but they are constantly rated as the best local announcers by out of town fans so I’m surprised at the hostility.

They haven't been NESN level homers, but they're on the very next tier of clownishness below Edwards and company. I hate Tracy more than Forslund (who I might uncharitably refer to as Foreskin in the moments he's being extra-assy to the Lightning) but they definitely feed off of each other.

Off the top of my head, in terms of broadcasters I really can't stand, Edwards and all the fools on NESN are top tier, Forslund and Tracy in Carolina, whoever they put with Bob Errey in Pittsburgh, my lifetime traveling grudge against former Thrashers color man Darren Eliot who is now in Las Vegas and I seriously considered fighting in a parking lot when I was in college, and the two jabronies in Washington (can't stand that guy's voice).

Anyone I'm missing?
