Brendan Gaunce Posted November 17, 2015 Share Posted November 17, 2015 What a joke that they got rid of these two guys. Jeff was super knowledgeable and extremely passionate about hockey, gonna miss his post-game shows. http://www.straight.com/blogra/578976/jeff-paterson-forced-sign-canucks-radio-broadcasts A man with an encyclopedic mind for sports statistics is no longer going to be a presence on TSN 1040. "In hockey terms, I'm an unrestricted free agent," Paterson tweeted to his 15,500 followers. "In real life, I'm unemployed." The former Straight sports columnist revealed that he was "one of many told by Bell Media/TSN1040 that our services were no longer required". "Sure, I'm angry and confused, but most of all I'm saddened," Paterson wrote. "Being on the frontline covering the Canucks on a daily basis was a dream job." He was in this position for more than 15 seasons, first with CKNW Radio and later with TSN 1040. Paterson's departure from the station is already being mourned by his fans, friends, and colleagues over Twitter. The Vancouver Sun's Iain MacIntyre tweeted "Brutal day, Jeff, what all of us of a certain age fear. It won't define you. Your body of work is too good and vast."
