As a matter of fact, comparing it to the NBC telecast would be insulting to the CBC telecast. Jim Hughson, who I criticized during the Vancouver series, did a terrific job during the entire telecast, and his summary of L.A. Kings history right before he went silent at the 2:00 minute mark was masterful and well-researched...got to give him props. If you haven't seen it, go to the 2:04:30 mark of the video below...quite moving. Then going silent for the last two minutes is a stroke of genius. Guy knows drama.

Thank you haven't seen this version and I was pleasantly surprised by it.

I lost count...but highlights certainly more than a hundred times... but still I just can't get used to it. We won the friggin thing ..how unreal is that.

When I started to watch entire games some years back Kings were awful and you would just be happy they made the play-offs. But after they sniffed their first PO's you could feel something was changing and the direction and the talk was suddenly more serious. I knew this years team was good enough but still and 16-4 ..are you kidding? Did I believe they would win the cup after they made the Play-offs? ...no freaking way.

But I LOVE IT
