    After reading an article that had NBC showing up at Wilkes-Barre with the cup in tow. I noticed this...

    There you have it...Davidson, Emrick, and Maguire will be your announce team for NBC hockey.

    I read that since the broadcast dates don't overlap each other Emrick and Davidson will work for both OLN and NBC.

    Does this mean no more Maguire on TSN? Please, please take him! That would be so "Monster"! :innocent:

    Beautiful. Some people might not like McGuire, but he provides enthusiasm and excitement, no matter what way you look at it, he'll attract more American viewers than say Harry "i put myself to sleep every night" Neale.

    Maguire is such a Habs Homer that he'll probably kill more american viewership than gain. I doubt many people care about the habs in the US and you know he's going to bring up the habs everytime he gets the chance.

    Doc Emrick: "Hey how about those predators they were impressive last night."
    Pierre Maguire: "That's great Doc... How about that Pierre Dagenais shot block!"

    Isn't NBC's coverage regional? They're going to need at least 3 or 4 announce teams.

    Unless Doc and John plan on calling three simultaneous games, it's regional coverage.

    Dunno... I thought they were only covering 7 regular season games. If that's the cast there will be like 2 nights of coverage.

    I'm sure that the regular gang (Pang, Engblom, etc.) will drag along to NBC/OLN, there's nothing left for them on ESPN. Unless they get signed to do commentary for individual teams.

    I really hope that OLN will somehow get Buccigross to do the NHL 2nite type show... Bucci is awesome.

    Panger is with the Coyotes now. Engblom is in Columbus. Not to say they couldn't do it.

    Darren Ravell's column about the NHL's "my NHL" also included a quote from "Former ESPN now OLN & NBC Commentator Bill Clement"

    Have to think that a lot of the usual suspects will be moving to OLN and NBC. Toss all the announcers that FOX and ABC/ESPN both used in the past 10 years into a hat and start putting your fanatasy hockey announcer team together.

    Also, Heistand wrote this in today's USA Today:

    "The latest additions to Outdoor Life Network's NHL coverage, which begins Oct. 5: Pierre McGuire as a studio analyst on Monday nights, and game reporters are Chris Simpson and Bob Harwood. All regularly cover hockey on TV in Canada."

    Game Reporters = 'Sideline' reporters??

    McGuire is still at TSN, he is part of the training camp package that TSN is advertising with McKenzie and Miller.

    McGuire is still gonna be with Gord Miller for NHL on TSN. NHL on NBC is Mostly saturday afternoon, and CBC has a saturday monopoly so there wont be any games on tsn anyways on that day. they shouldnt conflict. if they do. Cuthbert and Healy (ugh) will do the game.

    pang does do some work for tsn to now, i saw him on thats hockey, reda announced him as a hockey anaylst for the network. i dont think he will do alot, just from time to time.
