That's why we got Barker right? To ship him back to Tallon with Lu? RIGHT?

To Florida: Luongo, Barker
To Vancouver: Kulikov

Barker is a former 3rd overall pick, he's a gem.

To Philadelphia: Kulikov
To Vancouver: Couturier

Kesler returns from injury.

Win Cup.

Hopefully MG has a lot of pictures or blackmail, it would be oh-so useful in this case.

Lee will be calling Winnipeg Jets games and his sidekick will be Greg Millen. http://canadiansportsfan.wordpress.c...ght-in-canada/

I'll never understand how Kevin Weekes keeps his job. The man is an absolute moron.

I really have come to like Rick Ball-nice style to his play by play and he has a great sense of humour. Hrudey I have come to dislike.

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.
Word. Lee was a sleeping pill saturday night.

I thought the goal was to reward the fans, why is CBC punishing us? 48 game season and now I have to listen to my team get ripped on by a 90 year old man every Saturday TWICE. No Lalongo for you Toranta.....

CBC and it's attempt to be diverse. I assume they though Mark Lee was Chinese when he was hired.

I don't think it had anything to do with a need for 'diversity.' Weekes was a recently-retired, young ex-player who is well-spoken. He just didn't come across well at all on TV. Awful to listen to doing colour, although he'd probably make a decent intermission panelist.

Like the Baller when he doesn't talk politics, so hopefully this is a good gig for him.

Grapes is entertaining and has the odd good point, but for the most part he's a senial old man ranting, which is hilarious. His twitter account is one of the best things on twitter these days.

There is a very easy way to see how someone comes across on TV and it's not putting them on your mostly highly prized production.

The CBC does strive to be diverse. It's not a complaint, it's just me pointing out their mandate. What next, women?
