    Used to be. He hasn't been there for awhile now. Bucky Gleason is TBN Sabres beat reporter. But Kelley was there for a long time.

    Yeah, he's now with SportsNet. Ive seen him a few times during intermissions of Edmonton games much to my surprise, as I was wondering where he went. He still has tendencies to write a lot about the Sabres though.

    Still, he was disliked by a lot in Buffalo (choked by Hasek after a press conference...), and really put the final nail in his coffin by being fairly critical of Golisano and new ownership, IIRC.

    Jim Kelley is still a top 5 hockey journalist in my opinion. He's well thought out, and I always appreciate his stuff. However, I'll admit that he gets a hometown pass from me seeing that he's a lifelong Buffalonian, still living about a half hour south of the city.

    I completely forgot about that 'choking" incident :) Hilarious.

    I guess he has moved up here full-time, then. My bad. I knew he was a frequent guest on the Prime Time Sports radio show in Toronto, and the Sportsnet gig, but I figured those were just side jobs.

    Since he's an American it'll be dismissed out of hand. I mean how can you write a column about hockey in the south and not include a reference to cousin marriage and NASCAR?

    When I lived in Canada I got so sick of the self-righteous bull****, particularly in regards to "our game".

    The thing I find ironic is for all the redneck stereotypes bandied about against southern teams and the south in general, rednecks aren't confined to the south and there are quite a few in Canada as well.
