Hey does anyone else feel like Shorty and Garrett are comforting. When the playoffs come they dont call the games, Jim Hughson does (He is amazing too, incredible voice) but I love Shorty and Garrett , they are always funny and My mom the other day said hey how come the announcer is different (We were playing on HNIC) she said she likes our guys , but yeah they are awesome , so smooth , just like Vin Scully. One last quesiton, does anyone know why we play our playoff games on channel 3 ?

Jim Hughson will probably be calling the Leafs game during the playoff, so Nucks have Mark Lee.

But, we'll get Hughson back in rd 2

Hughson is awesome, obviously.

Garrett and Shorty are obvious homers... but considering the geography of most Canucks fans, it makes sense. At the same time as being homers, however, they still make opponent's goals exciting and praise good hockey for good hockey. They aren't like some announcer pairs that literally don't acknowledge opponents goals, and blatantly think every call against 'their' team is a bad call and every time an opponent does anything its a bad play.

CBC has first rights to any Canadian team series. If there's more than one Canadian series in the same day and time slot CBC has first choice of which series they cover. TSN gets US match-ups and Canadian series CBC decides not to cover. CBC also has sole Canadian rights to the east and west finals and the SCF.

SportsNet doesn't get playoff games because they are regional broadcasters, not national like CBC and TSN.

Most of this is accurate.

However, Sportsnet is actually a National broadcaster with Sportsnet One or by having all regional signals play the same game. They just don't have the rights to broadcast hockey Nationally at this time.

I'm in the advertising business and do loads of work with Sportsnet, TSN and CBC Hockey.

We may get a bit of a home town call during the playoffs if Rick Ball does work for CBC.

Of course we as Canuck fans like hearing biased/homer viewpoints that we get from Shorty/Cheech. After all, Larcheid was let go due to his "unfavourable" viewpoints.

If this is the type of broadcast your used to, of course a neutral broadcast that gives information that maybe you don't want to hear about your team (albeit true) will not be of preference.


I happen to liket he CBC/TSN broadcasts that give a more honest take on the team good or bad.

Seeing how the Laughs, Habs and Sens are in the playoffs this year its most likely canucks playoffs games will be on TSN as Cbc would most likely pick those three teams over the Canucks

Garret has an excellent eye for the game, I find myself paying attention to what he has to say and he generally picks a good time to say it (not blathering on ignoring the current on-ice action). Shorthouse is a great play by play...he comes across as pro canuck but not totally biased (Garrent strikes me as the least biased of the two). Honestly (Hughson aside) I cannot stand any other commentators I find them distracting from the game and I often wonder if they are even paying attention to it but perhaps they just don't have the eye for it that these 2 do.

As bad as CBC might be, just be glad you aren't stuck with NBC. I get to listen to Mike Milbury throughout the playoffs. I'll GLADLY sit through a CBC broadcast instead of hearing that idiot speak.

That's three Eastern teams. And CBC has always done a doubleheader for the playoffs. That's not going to happen with Vancouver most likely the only Western Canadian team. Its either going to be Ottawa or Montreal playing on TSN since CBC seems to love the leafs so much, or they're is a good chance we could be seeing two Eastern Canadian teams go at it in the first round.

CBC is awful. Just plain awful.

John n John are awesome. Sportsnet are my favorite. They actually call the game, and throw some stats at you.

CBC just banters on about their opinion, and whatever their current favorite player is. Even if they aren't on one of the teams playing. And Scott Oake is a complete joke. Hate his interviews.

TSN is alright, but they are really a bit too drama-oriented.
