I watched the entire CBC version last night and I must say it was head and shoulders above the NBC version. 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 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.

I think I'm going 8 times myself. Every time the 5 min pp comes on, I'm all smiles.

This is by far the best version to watch. It gets replayed on the NHL Network at least once a week. I believe another replay is scheduled for 6/29 @ 10 am.
