Randorf is a shitty PBP guy but a good dude. The guy that’s on there now is horrendous at PBP. Yamomoto !!!!! YamaYamaMotoooo!!!! Unsure why CBC allows this
It's SN Doyle. Anyway, he got axed, went lookin' for work and then got hired in TB.

How it went down according to Dave himself.
Ok... haven’t dug into it much. But I’d take a PBP gig in Tampa instead of playing fifth wheel at CBC/SN.
Yeah, it was a nice soft landing for ol' Dave for sure. Tampa's veteran pbp guy happened to retire last offseason I guess.

Don Taylor returning to TV with two other former TSN 1040 broadcasters
Tyler Green;
Mar 11 2021, 10:22 am... LINK
Don Taylor is headed back to television, and he’s bringing two former TSN 1040 colleagues with him.

Taylor teased his return to the airwaves last week, saying it would “involve some friends from 1040.” This week, he promised “Rick’s return,” posting a photo of his friend and long-time colleague, Rick Dhaliwal.

Daily Hive has learned that Taylor and Dhaliwal, along with former TSN 1040 producer Ryan Henderson, will be part of a new television show on CHEK TV, where Sports Page found a home for four years from 2001 to 2005.

Dhaliwal will co-host with Taylor, with Henderson producing the show.

Fans will no doubt welcome Taylor’s return to TV as he was much beloved during his time on Sportsnet and Sports Page. Details about the show are still being fine-tuned, but expect a combination of Taylor’s television style mixed with the radio show.

Stop this. There are no "Kids" poised to play in the bottom six for the #Canucks tonight.

If they go 7 D, the bottom-six Fs will look like this:
Gaudette (24)
Hawryluk (25)
Michaelis (25)
MacEwen (24)
Eriksson (35)

Average age is north of 30.

Bieksa’s full size cut out of Burke was pretty funny during the first intermission. He makes the intermission watchable again.

Gohmert, Harman Dayal actually has some decent takes. Drance, and String Tie however are idiots.

Don Taylor back on TV with Rick Dhaliwal is cringeworthy. Taylor was awesome from 1985- 2005. He’s awful now on both tv and radio unless he re invents himself. The last few years he was bored the audience with awful putrid imitations and behaving like he thinks he’s Walter Matthau. Dhaliwal was great when he was just a reporter/insider. He now thinks he’s Russel Peters and Don Cherry rolled into one.

Hopefully they cut out the cackling and giggling of the knob Ryan Henderson. The only redeeming thing about Henderson is his late father in law. Why he needs to giggle like a hyena constantly while the radio show is going on is baffling.

Reading some of Drance's articles at The Athletic always takes me back to my days growing up in Victoria when all you needed was a Grade 12 education and I started my first career working in the corporate world...

I was a retail lender working in the main office of a Bank filled with corporate lenders, and one of the differences between the two other than their higher education level was that they loved to hear the sound of their voices while we liked to keep it short and simple...

Say someone is applying for a car loan...

The corporate lender would write; This long, established client of our Bank has after a long deliberation and much compilation come to the conclusion that it makes sound sense for him to investigate the possibility of trading in his current vehicle for a larger, more comfortable vehicle and to our satisfaction has graced us with his application...

The retail lender would write; He wants to buy a car....

Drance reminds me of one of those corporate lenders who uses paragraphs to say what should be said in a sentence or two....

I can fall victim to that bad habit which is why I like to use the "...." to force myself to keep my comments from being any longer than they are...

Speaking of Taylor and Sport Page, it was at that job that I had a chance to meet Paul Carson and wish him good luck as he was about to move across the water to the big city and start a career at Sport Page...

And it was where I had my first look at the financials of not only players but also the owners of major junior and pro hockey teams...

Take care...

I believe he was one of the fancy stats whores form canuck army or such place who turned his blogging into a media gig. I had a look over at Bountiful and see that Bingo has gone full fancy stat. Mongoloids.

Please tell me at what point do shots for/against begin to reflect goals with outliers smoothed from the data? What is a T test?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
