    I didn't mind Bartlett but I hope this clears the way for TSN to have Gord Miller or Chris Cuthbert to start calling games. The team may be tough to watch but at least those guys will make it easier to listen to games.

    Wasn't that Paul romanuk's gig? Wonder what they are going to do with him.

    Next season should be broadcast in dead silence to reflect how the team makes us feel inside.

    Remember when they had that strike and the games were broadcast without announcers? That was great, just the crowd noise.

    Hope they give us Dave Randorf with Cassie Campbell and Denis Potvin on colour commentary. It’s the pain we deserve.

    Damn, I liked Bartlett. That's too bad. Wonder who he gets replaced with. Maybe Dan Robertson from TSN 690?

    I thought Joe Bowen was still going to call Leafs games. Maybe they figure that the Leafs will be so popular this season that they'll have 2 broadcast crews for viewers to choose from for every game.

    TSN probably already knows that the Habs' regional package is going to be a money pit for them this season. They'll hire D-list talent like they and The Score used to do in the dying days of the Expos.

    Who's the hockey equivalent of Sam Cosentino and Tom Valcke these days?

    I think Bowen still does the gig, but on radio, not TV. I think its been that way for a long time now.

    He was doing games on TV as well last season but I read now that his new contract is only for radio.

    He's actually been radio only for years. He didn't do any tv games last season. You may have been mixed up because fans hated Romanuk so much they would sync up his radio calls to TV replays and share those instead.

    That's a good guess as Robertson has a long history of calling Halifax Mooseheads games on TV before going to TSN 690.

    Dean Brown and Denis Potvin doing the call would be the biggest middle finger to Habs fans that TSN could do. I couldn't stand to listen to Sens games back in the day because of their calls.

    I don't get the hate toward Romanuk. I can remember listening to him calling Oshawa Generals games back in the 80's. He's always had the pipes. If I recall correctly it was Romanuk who did the play-by-play on TSN for the last game at the Forum and he did a fine job of it. We could do worse than him as our regular PBP guy. Would you rather have Dave Randorf full time? I wouldn't.

    Whatever happens be prepared for a healthy dose of Gary Galley.

    I still romanticize the 2002 playoffs over this. I wish there was an audio option to block out everything but the sound of the game and the fans.

    Bartlett replaces Romanuk who left Sportsnet. And it wouldn't surprise me if Romanuk replaces Bartlett as Habs play-by-play for TSN.

    Sure, if you want him to refer to our guys as "the Montreal player" because he doesn't know who anybody is.

    Nothing will make it easier to listen to the games.
