Emrick wanted an out for conflicting broadcasts because he had commitments nationally and had other obligations including some other sports (lacrosse, IIRC). It is why Gene Hart was brought back into the fold, from radio to TV, for a brief period.
It was always unfortunate that they parted on bad terms. But I think it is a bit unprofessional at times how biased Emrick is against the Flyers.

Just got home from the game.

I was seated on the side where Matt Carle rabbit punched my inner child.

What the HELL.

That was such a frustrating game to watch. Briere. :| Carle :|

I'd bet his leaving the Devils to work exclusively for NBC coincided with a new contract.

Probably the one thing that irks me on certain days, yet im fine with on another - shot blocking. It's one of those Homer Simpson Boxing Tactic things - takes no skill at all, but can totally shut a team down. Guy goes for shot, just dive down on all the shooting angles.

With soccer, basketball, and other sports, it takes skill to actually block a shot. Hockey, not really. But what can ya do? I remember a commentator jokingly saying put a penalty in if a player purposefully goes down to the ice. Other ideas are to lower the equipment protection. Yet with this done, players will still drop down and block all the shots. I forget what game it was, but it was overtime 4 on 3, defender blocked the shot, was seriously injured, stayed on the ice in the lanes... you guessed it - blocking shots.

I'm sort of curious, but when did this idea that everyone should drop down and take a puck to the face for the team mentality start? Watching the classic games from the 60s and 70s it wasnt anything like this where guy does a wind up and 2 plays drop to their knees ready for the puck to blast them like now.

In the video era, of course, everything is magnified and perhaps the changes in equipment add to that. The stat wasn't officially kept until the late 90s or so, but from memory, Joe Watson had a rugged reputation as one of the most undaunted shot-blockers of the 70s.

BSH is trying to compare Carle to Suter and Chara now. Time to unfollow.

Are we all missing someone? Everyone but us seems to sing Carle's praises all the time.

No, Carle is exactly like Suter and Chara! On top of that, the word "Drive" was never uttered during the game tonight, much less yelled emphatically! Pierre McGuire has a full head of luscious hair!


...what Bizarro universe do those guys live in? Yes, Carle is JUST LIKE the man with a 105mph slap shot. Matt "Weakwrists" Carle. The guy who takes a shot from the point, and the goalie has time to compost some garbage into soil, grow tea leaves in it, dry the leaves, make tea, drink it, and pee it back out again before the shot reaches him. At which point he gloves it to stop play, resulting in a faceoff we lose.

Yes. He and Chara are truly one and the same.

Forget this game ever happened, move on from it, and make a statement by crushing Toronto. Let's just be thankful the Lightning aren't in the playoffs.

Also, our spacing in the offensive zone remains pretty terrible. It can be downright excruciating to watch at times.
