They've had 6 years to sort out the announcers - with 10 more years ahead, if they want to be considered professional like CBC or TSN, they have to recruit a small group of announcers that do not have affiliations to an NHL team (such as what Emrick, Beninati, Forslund, Olczyk have). There is no excuse to have the Carolina PxP man (Forslund) call a national game between the Hurricanes and Sabres, as happened this season.
