CBC goalie commentator swap!

EAST gets:
Kelly Hrudy

WEST gets:
Glen Healy

Why the West does it:

Healy isn't without his flaws. He's sometimes inaccurate/clueless (see his comments on Saturday about Maatta needing to play the body... while addressing a replay of Maatta playing the body), quite negative, and extremely opinionated. However, he has an obvious dislike of Toronto and is very assertive in having this apparent to all who are watching. For this reason he could be an excellent fit, possibly even a crowd favourite out west despite his other flaws. Besides, right now "After hours" is operating a good cop/good cop set up. Every knows how effective good cop/bad cop is, so bringing Healy in seems an obvious choice and brings excellent balance to the program.

Why the East does it:

While a decent commentator, PJ's "flair" and popped collars provide just the right amount of douchiness. Adding Healy to the mix brings CBC's eastern broadcast doucheba.g levels dangerously high and out of proportion. Just as a great set up for a forward line has a playmaker, a sniper, and a power forward or grinder, a broadcast should have proportional levels of nice guy, douchiness, and insightfullness. Hrudey is a genuinely a nice guy, and fairly insightful as well. If CBC replaces Healy's douchiness with Hrudey's polite insightfulness it would have an extremely well balanced eastern broadcast.

Both broadcasts improve their overall balance, so this seems to be the broadcast equivalent of a classic hockey trade. Add to either side as necessary.
