If I could pull one thing from this lock out that is a positive for me, it has to be that I don't have to hear the self induced rantings of Brian Burke. I find it to be a pleasant holiday from the talking head.

Who do you not miss the most?

Don't miss Don Cherry and his inane, senile ramblings on how the players of yore would never have done this or that, because they lived by the code.

On this flip side I miss Torts anger outbursts at random media guys!

Pierre Mcguire.... No doubt about it. He's the most annoying guy in the NHL for me. Can't stand him calling a game. Every other word out of his mouth is Crosby, even when the Pens aren't playing. The guys a knob.

I'm starting to not miss any of it... I dont really care if it even comes back or not... after the crap officiating when we went to the cup final and the lackluster season last year and now this lockout crap, I dont even really care. If it comes back I will probably watch it, but I'm not spending my money on center ice pack, or canucks gear or anything NHL related.... feels pretty good actually :)

Why would you not want Canucks hockey on CBC?

To be honest, as much as i love the Canucks, i hate watching regular season games. They play like crap half the time, but end up winning. It's the same old story every time. That's what we did in 2010-2011, we just played like crap for like 60 games but still somehow managed to win.

Playoff Hockey with Hughson > Playoff Hockey with TSN

Sure the analysts may be biased on CBC, but do people honestly care if someone talks crap about our team?..

Turn off the TV during intermissions, go be with your family, drink a beer, take a leak..

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Hey he's right about that, I actually enjoy listening to Don he knows what he is talking about. I also miss HNIC, the way they televise the games is first class. People just whine because they don't praise the Canucks 24/7, I guess they forget it is a 30 team league.


The thing I don't miss, is having to wait all day for the Canucks game, then having the game turning out to be really boring.

actually same here. Complaining to everyone possible about some of the bull was fun too (no not whining about everything don't mistake the two). It's the same reason part of me was sad peter loubardias wasn't with the flames last year... he was sooooommmmmmeeee kinnnnnddddddd offff broaaaadddcaassssteeerrrrrrrr

I can't believe people don't like HNIC

It's been there since my childhood. When Cherry retires, hockey will never be the same for me. I love listening to Bob Cole and Harry Neale on the early games because it reminds me of watching the Sens go to the finals, all that kind of stuff.

I love listening to Chris Cuthbert, his voice reminds me of Morrison's triple OT winner and Cooke's goal in game 7.

Call me a traditionalist, but I love HNIC. It's my favorite time of the week

I don't miss Brian Burkes tie around his neck. He makes it look like he's been working very hard all day, and the day is done, and wraps his tie around his neck. Looks retarded.

I agree! I find McGuire hilarious. He may make stupid but funny comments (even though he's not trying to be funny), but has a real passion for hockey.

I miss hockey :(

Bob and Harry get a lot of criticism on this board, but I tend to agree with you. Although they're both getting long in the tooth and the name recognition is what it used to be for Cole, Harry Neale has some of the best comments ever, something he was adept at as a coach before becoming a broadcaster:

"If you want to pin Jarome Iginla to the boards, you'd better bring a staple gun"...

Harry almost makes the Leafs worth watching.
