Fox will probably have to overpay to get someone like Friedman, McKenzie, or LeBrun, but out of all of those LeBrun is the most likely to leave.
I had the same thought.
Plus it seems like the guys working for Canadian networks are free to work for an American one too, so it doesn't make sense to say "poach" unless the eprson was employed by an American network.
Although Don Cherry being broadcast in the US would be gold
