I don't.

One of the things I like about the panel is having people who were actually involved in the NHL + the obligatory host. Now they have just added another "Insider" media guy who I feel isn't adding anything to the program. Heck half the fun of watching it is the chemistry and banter between Kypreos and MacLean. Morrison just sits there looking awkward the whole segment.

And on the topic of HockeyCentral (TV, not radio), the whole two desk/table setup is stupid. One large desk is fine!! I think its obvious to people they are trying to copy TSN, they aren't fooling anyone with their slight changes.

I avoid this show because the banter between Kypreos and MacLean makes me want to stick needles into my eyes and therefore can not comment on the work that their interior decorator has done.

Do you have the same problem with Dreger, McKenzie and LeBrun?

So you don't watch a show you don't like? Outside the box thinking at it's finest.

Tried watching just so that I could complain but lost the will for that after a minute. I start watching the game when the puck drops and find something else to do during intermissions and avoid almost all of these panels.

I actually find them pretty entertaining. A far cry from robot analyst talk. Sometimes they do get off topic yes, but they give me a chuckle.

This doesn't sound like the SportsNet panel.

Sportsnet is horrible.
CBC is horrifying.
TSN is far better than both
NHL on NBC has the best overall production imo

lol I liked CBC ages ago but I think they fell off. It's like i'm watching a kids show. Ever watch NBA on TNT?
The halftime show is hilarious...
Hughson + Healy :s Hughson sounds so monatone. I rather listen to Siri from an iPhone commentate the game lol
Taking Bob Cole off Leafs games wasn't good imo

I'm one of the few that probably doesn't mind HockeyCentral.

When you are in the office stuck on a long day's work, having a one-hour radio show that combined hockey with some wit + humor isn't that bad at all.

While it's frustrating every now and again to hear MacLean derail a segment, I don't mind it - it's refreshing to hear some personalities that are actually personalities, not machines/robots.

Each to their own.

I don't mind Morrison either. I've never really had a problem with him

I wouldn't know. In between intermissions I leave the room and use the computer.

He's better than Brophy, Shannon and MacLean. I don't mind Kypreos, but in a "I don't really care" way. Still though, they fired Watters and hired Marek so there is hope for improvement.

Morrison and his almost invisible beard is the only credible dude on Sportsnet

I like Morrison and Kypreos. Both have solid hockey knowledge and credibility. I do not like Doug "Rick Nash" Maclean though.

Sportsnet is painful to watch. Most of us on HFBoards could probably do their jobs when it comes to speculating trades and other rumours, and post game analysis. It's amateur hour over there compared to TSN, which can also be pretty brutal when there's not much to talk about, and in sports... it happens a lot. But at least they try to make it as professional as possible.

Sportsnet is so half assed it's not even funny.
