Ray Ferraro to TSN?

I was browsing the CalgaryPuck forums tonight (admittedly to get some laughs), and I saw a thread which said that Ferraro was heading to TSN to join Chris Cuthbert.

Here's a quote from the poster:

Quote:
Ferraro will be named as new colour commentator for TSN and will for the most part join Chris Cuthbert in the booth.
Ferraro tried to play hardball with Sportsnet to get more than just the oilers package and it didnt work..so TSN scooped him up to replace Healy.

He will also join the panel in Toronto. That leaves Sportsnet looking for a replacement to join Kevin Quinn...Rumour has a combination of Rob Brown and Oilers Radio guy Morley Scott.
http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=61314

If true, I'm not exactly enthusiastic about the idea of adding Rob Brown to a portion of 48 more Oiler games for this upcoming season.

I haven't seen an official story on this, so has anyone else heard anything?

No source. No belief.

Although it's not hard to believe, Ferraro is the best. Way too good to be stuck with regional broadcasts.

I don't blame Ferraro for going to TSN.

That being said, I'll hit the mute button when watching games if Brown and his furry little plugs end up getting the gig.

I was just going to post this. I think it sucks. I actually am a big fan of Ferraro. I love the enthusiasm he brings. Quinn-Ferraro were a good combo IMO. He says the rumor is Morley Scott filling in. Who will help out Rod if Scott fills in for SNW?

Uh... this is just some random poster on CalgaryPuck. Not a press release or a comment from an insider.

It's been rumored in media circles for quite some time.

Because he's good at his job.

Until I see a press release or official announcement, I'm not going to take some poster from the internet equivalent of hell at face value.

Then why is Eklund given airtime?

But seriously, this has been a rumor for a while...but for the most part it seemed to be just that. This poster, while not part of the media, presents an idea that makes sense. I'm just curious if someone else has heard the same.

If Ferraro goes to TSN, thats fine. But I wouldn't be able to stand it if Rob Brown took over... The guy is awful at being the colour..... I'm sure he's a really nice guy and all, it just doesn't fit him.

Morley is decent but I'll scream if we get stuck with Rob Brown. I find the guy creepy for some reason and I really don't like the way he calls the game.

Morley Scott is an unreal homer, and Rob Brown has no business being in the broadcast booth.

If losing Healy means more Rob "Plugs" Brown, then that's a sacrifice I can take.

I wonder what the price would be for Greg Millen getting the axe?

I can apply for that job. I love Rod Phillips.

I don't mind a homer as long as he's an Oiler one

Seriously, our GDT's will have more then enough deconstructive criticism.

Congrats for Ferraro, he'll be a really positive addition to the TSN team, he and Cuthbert doing games with ****ing rule.

The tough part, is who replaces him at Sportsnet, hmmm.

I'm trying to think of a recent, or sort of recently retired player with some Edmonton connects and good personality. David Oliver?
