    Mike Milbury is also part of HNIC.

    NBC has improved, while CBC has not. Never thought I'd see the day where a lot of people would say HNIC is becoming a poor product, but I hear it a lot now.

    Considering that NBC has so far to go, it's easy to appear improved.
    Their cameras quality and perspective are poor at best.

    HNIC has by far the best production of any one that produces hockey games, by far!
    I mean it's not even close.

    Coaches Corner and Hot Stove by themselves have a bigger audience than NBC hockey.

    You may not like it or agree, but the truth is it's our game and we're doing just fine thanks.

    You see the thing is that when you add a Canadian to an American broadcast you have to expect the rating increase.
    That's just the way it is!

    Mike Milbury is only good at going into the stands and beating a fan anyways.

    NBC's play by play analyst is great, he's got a great voice and he gets right into it.


    I can't stand Jim Hewson and Craig Simpson on CBC in primetime now. They need Harry Neal and Bob Cole back doing it!

    You don't have to improve the product, just keep it excellent.

    Sadly, they aren't.

    I wonder if the CBC has made a corporate change in product development...(ie) HNIC

    Something happened. I started to hear the criticism from my Canadian friends first. When I paid attention to what they were pointing out, it made sense.

    And I say this as someone that has always held up HNIC as the broadcast standard all should aim for, not just in hockey, but all sports.

    HNIC is by far the best, in my opinion. Ron Maclean is one of the best sports personalities out there. Don Cherry, love him or hate him, knows how to get ratings. Glenn Healy is and always has been one of my favorite analysts as well. TSN is a very close second because of guys like Ferraro, Duthie, Ward, Mackenzie, Dreger etc.

    Doesn't NBC feature Pierre McGuire now? As far as I see it, any broadcaster that has that guy on air is not improving their product. Man is he annoying.

    I find Bob MacKenzie annoying. The guy sucked when he wrote for the Sault Star. He is the classic "Peter Principle" icon.
