All the league cares about is keeping their old boys club in power and hopefully promoting the game in the US. The latter is clearly failing, and anytime I've seen highlights of the sport on US networks it is either a insane brawl, a bloody fight or someone being carried off on a stretcher. I really hope the NHL is aware that having footage of a US BORN player who was developed in the US College system being nearly killed with no retribution is not going to make young American parents either sign their kids up for youth hockey or take them to games. It's not 1980 anymore, adhering to "the code" or saying it was a "hockey play" is not acceptable anymore...maybe it takes someone getting killed on NBC for the league to finally understand this.

I liked when MacLean made a comment about stock and milburry being boston alum...and then stock says time to suck up to montreal and millburry says speak for him self...not hiding his bias one bit...love to see him pull that on NBC during a Philly/Rangers/Det/Pitts broadcast vs. Boston...CBC probably promotes habs bashing and gives a bonus if you can squeeze in an unrelated Leafs reference

0 mention of habs outplaying Boston for 2 periods and Thomas playing very well to keep it close...just about how montreal is difficult to play against.

not sure if you're being sarcastic...but the commentary is the same on CBC. I've switched to RDS, and I don't understand french at all

or why PK continues to play with Picard? they both have giveaway problems...need to play with steadier partners

Mike Milburry @ intermission: Cammi is a wimp because is a midget that fights with a visor, refs should have kicked him out, boston is getting screwed, Bruins are the best!!!!

CBC is a joke of a network, I wish they'd just admit they're the leafs network and hate MTL and be upfront rather than have the facade of being neutral....you'd never see a waste like Stock on the leaf loving TSN, they have a little bit of professionalism at least
- Comment on Game 32: Canadiens solve Thomas, snap skid (2010-12-16 20:12:19)
so true...at least NESN might mention that the score is 3-1 and the shots were 17-9 in favour of MTL...not talking about how the habs won't fight their goons for no reason and how the refs have screwed them
