They wanted Suter in Detroit though they secretly wished Suter was going to the Rangers.
This is a pretty accurate description of ESPN. There is no journalistic integrity in that organization at all. In a few of their writers perhaps, but as an organization ESPN is just a giant pile of crap and I can not wait until every major sport and major college conference has their own channel and all ESPN can get the rights to is competitive nursing home knitting.

Pierre Lebrun, Scott Burnsdie, John Buccigross, Steve Levy, Linda Cohn, and also Craig Custance are all great, the rest of ESPN sucks. (Except for those who run baseball tonight, the only other great thing about that channel).

Eh, I always just watch quick pitch if I need baseball highlights.

At least I did, when I had DirecTV. Cable One of course does not have MLB Network.

I think the whole way up and back to Green Bay I kept blabbing about them to my gf.

Might have to rock the Wild jersey to the Twins game on Sunday. Parise throwing out the first pitch.

And so it begins - mover over Joe Mauer, you have company on the immensely wealthy, home-grown hero front.

Hoping for more than polite applause.

I would love for the NBC Sports Network to steal John Buccigross from "The World Wide Leader" but I don't think that he would ever leave them. To loyal it seems. It is a shame that great hockey guys have to work at a place where the sport they love to cover is ridiculed, or forgotten.

I think Bucci just signed a multi year contract extension with ESPN as well. I think Gopher tweeted about it at some point.

Hey Gopher, clarification?

You are correct. Bucci signed a 5-year extension a couple months back and as part of it has a higher profile Sportscenter gig and the play-by-play duties at the Frozen Four. He would have been a great pickup for NBCSN, especially because I believe Bucci is a rare five-tool media talent (big on TV, radio, social media and writing) and a top hockey guy.

They hate it because Parise has been plotting his escape regardless of being the captain of his current team. I'm pretty sure that's the reason most of the Devils fans say they are pissed about it along with the fact that Parise chose a perennial loser team instead of a winning one.

Pierre's article says some G.M.s were discussing the possibility, not Parise and Suter themselves: quite a far cry from plotting.

Not my opinion, that's just what I have heard a lot of Devils fans saying here.

Seems like they would ignore reality and substitute their own.

Oh well.

So is there going to be a thread part III? Seems too awesome to not.
