I visit Hockeybuzz for entertainment now and again.

I think it is a little unprofessional that guys like Richard Cloutier (oilers blogger) and Mike Augello (maple leafs blogger) continually use the board as way to bash the canucks.

Today Richard Cloutier writes how the canucks have no second line and thus will not be fun to watch, so therefore they should have less CBC air tim (below).

"And the Canucks have no second line, so they're going to be terrible this season too. Yet the CBC will keep forcing those two teams down our throats weekly, because that's what happens when a company has their head office in the Center of the Universe.

last time I checked, CBC has had a mild hate on for the Canucks over the past couple of years.Richard I am sorry that CBC is not giving you want, but it is not really up to AV, MG, or the players. Also telling us our team is terrible is unprofessional and you do it all the time.
I am not a huge Ian Esplen fan, but at least he does not bash other teams and continually whine like Richard.

Richard- quite it with the Teamis envy, soon the oilers will have their time in the sun, it is inevitable conisdering they took the easy road and failed hardcore for 5 years in a row.

I'll complain about Mike another time- but he is drinking the TO kool-aid as he keeps proposing Komi + Connolly for Luongo- at least he is entertaining.

There's only a few bloggers with credibility. From my experience, all you have to do to become a blogger is to be active on their forums and get lucky, and you'll get offered the job but It's not like you get paid anything.

good to know, I was wondering if there was any screening. This explains it.

Hockeybuzz writers' opinions have as much weight as any average fan, often times because they are merely Joe Average.

Meh. Not much different from Canuck fans who complain about too many Leafs games on TV.

Very interesting post.
I personally don't care about anyone's opinion about anything including my favorite hockey team

I think it's flattering if I think anything at all.

Wait, there's two centers of the universe? One in Toronto and one in Vancouver? Then that would put the center of the two centers of the universe in... Winnipeg. TSN wins!

But yeah, is there a trade, rumour or signing in this thread, or is it just complaining about HockeyBuzz?

His view comes from a oilers fan perspective , And he has a point cause chances are the oilers team is going to be a more entertaining team to watch this year

Richards writing IMO is pretty good. I read this guy constantly for entertainment. He has stated himself numerous times 90% of his material is for entertainment's sake. A lot of the time he is pretty straight forward with his thinking and that's all you can ask him. So getting all bent out of shape over a blog is pretty petty. It is not a newspaper it's a form of writing made simply for people toread. Tsn is news, hockeybuzz is entertainment.

Who cares about Hockeybuzz? They are about as credible as any other high school kid.

Nobody wants to hear that ugly horn the Oilers blare after every goal anyways.. I bet once they get their new stadium built, there's going to be more Oilers on HNIC.
