Hey, as long as we have T.J. Miller.

Seriously, who does the editing for these stories?

I am just going to say this. The article is an absolute farce when it does not mention Boogaards passing away as a subtraction from the squad. Not that it analytically would manner much hockeywise - but when you mention Brodie Dupont as a subtraction from the team - this is an extremely distasteful piece of writing. Show some respect! Pass

I like how they mention how awful Sean Avery can be and how that may influence Richards.... Umm, hey idiots, they're friends. I'm thinking they'll be ok with each other in the locker room... Seriously, I just lost some respect for TSN who are usually good for mainstream hockey coverage.

Yeah I was coming here to say the exact same thing. Also no mention of Boogaard is disrespectful and unfortunate.

They can dominate the East and even win the division? If they dominate the East they should win the division.

Whoever wrote that is lost.

I'd quickly disagree with this comment. I mean you can dominate the East and play some solid hockey but have teams in your division with similar records (Philly, Pitt). Too say this guy is "lost" is a weird way of looking at it.

Also the hate for TSN seems to be pretty heavy here. I'm from Canada and can tell you that TSN is by FAR the best sports network for hockey news across North America. I have never been to New York but whenever I travel across the States I rarely ever see any type of hockey being talked about.

Good call sauce cheese while I'm not the biggest fan of TSN at least they talk hockey. Personally I thought it was a good assessment. As for boogy, he'll be missed, but let's face it he really never was a factor due to how little he played, so I'm not suprised there was no mention.

As for Avery he and Richards are supposedly friends so I don't see him being a negative factor any more than usual.

If you guys wanna get angry read some of the horrible posts at the bottom of the article. No grit? Toronto will finish higher? Ok

Most of the time TSN is alright. Their problem is generally that they don't know the ins and outs of every team quite as well as a dedicated reporter might, so they will say some strange things that don't mesh right with the observations of people who watch the team.

And they tend to know the Canadian teams better

But in general that wasn't a bad review other than the Avery bit. That seemed kinda dumb and unnecessary

I was not the biggest supporter of Derek Boogaard, his play or his contract.

But mentioning players like Andre Deveaux (22 NHL games - 1 point), Andreas Thureson (25 NHL games - 3 points) as additions and Brodie DuPont ( 1 NHL game played - 0 points) as a loss and not mentioning Derek Boogaard (277 NHL games played, 16 points) as a loss is a plain and very disrespectful travesty when looking at the facts. THN might be a good source of hockey at many times --- this is not one of their premiere moments.

Gotta make it about Avery because they don't know what else to talk about....lame. How about giving props to Brian Boyle and his career year or Brandon Prust, the resigning of Feds and how important the 3 are to the PK? ...lame.
