We've put up a great fight against the Bruins this year, but it's hard to see the Leafs winning this series.

I would be more than thrilled to see the Leafs stretch this series to 6 games.

Kessel vs Seguin and Hamilton

B's in 4 or 5, for Toronto to have any shot Reimer needs to play like he does vs the sens.

dammit.
****! I blame the Canucks!

Seriously pissed that we gotta listen to Hughson/Simpson with a sprinkle of Healy on top. Can't get any worse than that..............

These guys ruin the vibe seriously the worst play guys on TV, we deserve better than that after such a long drought but not even surprising. Canuckers are lucky to be on TSN I can't afford cable but would rather stream the games in SD with better announcers than get this crap OTA CBC Leafs hate fest in HD.

Cole for Habs/Sens with Campbell should be good.Hope that's a 7 game series.

Lol don't blame us.

You would have gotten Hughson/Simpson even if CBC had taken us.

Hughson is good, I don't know why the Leaf fans hate him (I understand Healy and the others but Hughson is great)

Once you have to listen to Mark Lee and Rick Ball every time your on HNIC then you will have found a new appreciation for Hughson.

I'm ecstatic to be on TSN and get Cuthbert though.

Anyways this should be a good series, the atmosphere in the ACC alone will make it exciting to watch.

Damn, we should be able to trade Hughson for Cuthbert. Toss in Healy to make the trade go through.

Hughson mentions the Canucks and especially the Sedins 800 times a game(during Leafs games). It becomes obnoxious. Every time he does a game I do a bet with my friends as to how long into a game he makes a Sedin twin reference. For example, he did a Leafs game not long ago where two players on the other team, I think it was Ottawa,there were two players who looked somewhat similar during warmup and he made a Sedin twin reference. He does it all the time. Before the game even started. Imagine he made Leafs references all the time? During the play he mentions the Canucks. Like...really? Hughson has a great voice, knows how to call a game and knows what he's talking about BUT he shoves the west coast down everyone's throat. That's my problem with him anyway.

At least he's not calling the Canucks series. Man, he's unbearably bias when calling their games. Worse than any regional broadcast I can think of, he probably thinks he can get away with it when the Nucks are facing American teams. Newflash Jim: Not everyone in Canada roots for the Canadian team..

Ya thats fair enough.

We have the same problem with any CBC we get. Datsyuk is mentioned all the time, and when we play Detriot there is always a lengthly complement every shift he gets.

That makes sense. I would personally put up with it if the commentator was one of the best like Hughson, and not Ball/Lee but thats just me.

I feel the same way about the Leafs and CBC in general.

Pretty easy to put up with it when your team is the team he's bias towards...

Well, the guys calling the Leafs/Bruins series certainly aren't bias towards us in any way whatsoever. Healy hates us and the rest are neutral.

Healy's both anti and pro.

When the Leafs are doing well there is a positive point to be made. Its massive pro leaf, when there is something negative to point out he is anti leaf.

He exagerates both ways.

And I'm pretty sure CBC in general is Pro-Leaf. Especially when it comes to the point that they feel the need to do even more Leaf analysis in the intermission of the later game. (just to relate it to your Hughson/Sedin thing)

Lol no.

If Lee and Hrudy were any good. I would be fine with them mentioning Datsyuk a million times, it just so happens they aren't very good so its extra annoying.

Healy has only been positive towards the Leafs in any way lately, probably because CBC told him to. If you really think he evenly distributes the pros and cons, we've been watching 2 different broadcasts for the past few years. They do more analysis because the Leafs have the biggest fanbase. The actual commentary crew (you know, the one I was talking about...) during the game is neutral and Healy single-handily tilts it more to the negative side.

Pretty easy to call Hughson a good PBP guy when he's bias towards your team. See how these things work?
