Great news for hockey fans in VAN, CGY, EDM: CBC's new Western HNIC crew is Rick Ball and Kelly Hrudey

I am going to miss Jim Hughson, but I guess I take Rick Ball over anybody else from the CBC, especially Mark Lee

CGY and EDM fans will hate this.

I don't like Kelly Hrudy much either - he can't put together a sentence very well even after working in TV for years.

Awesome! A huge fan of the Baller. Enjoyed his show when it was on 1040 as well. Better than Shorthouse IMO.

I wouldn't say excellent move but a step in the right direction for sure.

What does Rick Ball sound like calling a game? Can someone drop some youtube on us, here? I want to know if this is good news, because Hughson was good.

Rick Ball is awesome and Hrudey actually knows what he's talking about despite as mentioned not saying it very well.

Another budget move from the CBC. I don't mind Rick Ball, but to me he's a radio announcer. Like, radio calibre. The corporation doesn't have the cash to hire somebody legit. If they could, they'd be scooping up TV guys, not trawling the radio for talent.

Disclaimer: nothing could be worse than Mark Lee. I wonder where he's headed?

Disagree with people NOT happy about this. Rick Ball is very, very good.

Does anyone know what Rick Ball thinks of Ron MacLean? Just curious. It would be nice to have someone stick up for the Canucks.

Not bad. Ball in, Lee out. Playoffs roll around, Hughson in again.

Not sure about that. Lee is an employee of CBC and I do not believe he has been fired. Ball is an added expense.

If this means that we never have to hear Mark Lee and Kevin Weekes again ... this is the best news of the year so far. Like, better than the lockout being settled.

Lee and Weekes should be sealed in lead and sent on a rocket to the moon. Their commentary would have been a joke if it was for BCHL games.

I was just about to comment about this! Trade is off! Losing Lu and Hughson for playoffs is just too much. Hopefully MG is using this as leverage against Nonis.

Luongo + Hughson in Toronto in the playoffs? Send Luongo to FLA and send Hughson to us!

Yup, there is absolutely zero good about lu going to the maple leafs. Can you imagine how much more leafs highlights we would see during Canucks HNIC intermissions?! At least they'd be all about Lu (good or bad).
