CBC announcers for Canucks Playoffs

Post by Broda » Mon Apr 06, 2009 11:21 pm

Maybe this is a pointless thread... but its mostly a.. damn i hope we don't get the Mark Lee and Marc Crawford as announcers..
Seeing as it looks less and less likely that the oilers are going to make it. Three Canadian teams will be in the playoffs this go around.
Figure.. Montreal will get Bob Cole, cause he has been calling them all year.
hope... Jim Hughson and Simpson will call canucks games due to the familiarity of Hughson to the Canucks.
Hope... Mark Lee calls the flames games... cause i can't stand him.. so boring..

Or.. I don't think tsn can get canadian teams but if they could would be great to see Cuthbert and Ferraro.

Anyways this is probably all way off, and also depends on the canucks and flames not meeting in the first round. If they do, then yeah it will probably be Hughson and Simpson no brainer..

Anyways just curious to what you guys think about announcers calling the games.. who would you want?

"Edler with a drive!... SCORES" -Cuthbert..

just end it if we get Greg Millen..

As long as either Hughson or Cuthbert are in there, I'm good.

I'm hoping that Hughson will call the Canucks series. He is one of the best play-by-play men working these days.

I'm not holding my breath for Hughston if Montreal makes it.

I imagine once they're bounced in round 1, and either/both Vancouver and Calgary advance we might see him out West.

I was realllllly hoping that none of the Eastern teams would make it this season, if only to stick it to the eastern "we can't stay up past our bed-time to watch hockey so we'll pretend it's not real" media

Maybe we can collectively invite the CBC to send Lee and Crawford to Flin Flon Manitoba to call the broomball tournament. Why does Vancouver always get that end of the stick when it comes to playoffs?
