    As long as TSN, CBC, and SportsNet get good ratings, I don't care about the American networks. In fact, they piss me off, because sometimes TSN switches over to the OLN feed for a game. As has already been said, OLN has some of the worst hockey game coverage I've ever seen in my life. I'd take that jerk Greg Millen over OLN, and that's saying A LOT.

    I've never seen OLN, but if you're will to put up with Greg Millen... :eek:

    Still, nothing's worse than Harry Neale, the Sultan of the Blatantly Obvious.

    Flames lose, Canucks win, and all is right in the world for yet another night.

    you should have it so good, we had Millen as a colour commentator since 1992... almost made you want to listen to the French radio broadcasts, which were horrendous.

    Who's going to be the next Steve Moore?

    My bet: Sean Avery, of the LA Kings.

    I was amazed at how many empty seats there were at the RBC Arena tonight, there was no way there were 12,000 people (which was approximately the official figure) at the game. It looked more like 8,000. Time to get that team out of Raleigh and into Winnipeg, though knowing the NHL, they'll probably go to Houston, or Montgomery, or some other place like that.

    Even if they don't move a team to Winnipeg or Quebec City (which they should if they can, I would love to see the NHL back in both) I don't understand why nobody thinks of or talks about moving a team to Wisconsin. When the U of M(n) plays UW Madison in hockey their arena is always crazy. Though it isn't NHL sized it holds 14,000 for hockey and is in Madison which only has 400,000 or so in metro population; yeah the tickets are cheaper and it is a college game in a college town but still...

    It is not like Minnesota, Michigan or New England as far as American hockey goes but it is only a short distance behind that and could become so much more given the chance. Northern Wisconsin especially is real hockey country, it's winter for five months and they have lakes, ponds and people who know and love the game, a lot of those people end up moving to Madison or Milwaukee (if they don't move to the Twin Cities and Chicago or stay where they are from).

    The NHL in Wisconsin should be a no-brainer compared to North Carolina, Phoenix, two in LA, etc. Wisconsin actually produces NHL players and has a big city too...

    chug, chug, chug ;) :D . Things were looking bleak after the 1st period :sad: . What did Gerber stop- 44 shots? :goodjob: Canes are tough,
    but not so good at large comebacks.... I thought down by two vs Hasek=
    loss.

    The crowd was excellent, stayed for the finish and very noisy in the end :cool: . Hockey fans here enjoy the scoring this year and WILL
    support a semi-winning team.

    The Hurricanes franchise is not financially viable. Even during their cup year, throughout the season there were still plenty of empty seats pretty much every night, and when the owner comes out and states that he lost less money during the lockout than had there been a full season, you know that there is no real point in having a hockey team in Carolina. In a place like Winnipeg, Quebec, Madison, or Milwaukee, there sellouts would become routine even during non-playoff seasons. My vote goes to Winnipeg just because they have an NHL-grade facility that was just completed last year for the Moose to play in.
