lol the Oilers commentary on Sportsnet wasn't too pleased that Tanev scored.. Heck they didn't even know it was his first career goal...
And that is why Shorty and Garrett are the best
O man, I live in Calgary, so I have to watch the Calgary and Oiler feeds when the Canucks play them. Centre Ice occasionally uses the feed from another team as well. But the Oiler broadcast is by far the WORST I have ever seen.
- Every Oiler player's move/hit/etc. is blown way out of proportion. There was one time last night they claimed the Oiler player completely 'exploded into' a Canuck for a hit - but seriously, it was nothing more than a bump. The Canuck player did not fall, he just slowed down a tad. They were pumping Fistric's physical play all the way through the first last night, without realizing until the end of the period that he hurt himself taking a run at the smallest guy on the ice (and missing).
- I have noticed that if there is a questionable penalty against the other team, they don't bother to broadcast the replay. Last night when Yakupov folded like a cheap tent when Schroeder gave his jersey a slight tug, there wasn't a single replay of the incident. I can't remember a Canuck broadcast where they didn't show a replay of every penalty at least once. But I've seen it in both Edmonton games this year. If their guy dove, they just don't show it.
- Gene Principe is nothing but a clown who likes to use props. Seriously, the guy seems to have no knowledge of hockey whatsoever.
