Sure, we’re all sick of Pierre McGuire. After the Olympics, NHL Finals, and a season which it seemed like he was the (penis)face of the league, we at least can enjoy next season of Mickey and Kenny, right?
Nope. NBC has released their NHL schedule for next season, and you best get ready for a season filled with unnecessary background discussion of every junior stop that every Johnny Third-Liner has ever made.
Detroit will be featured on NBC or NBC Sports 17 times next year, three more times than last year and tied for most in the league (with Pittsburgh and Boston).
Hit the jump for more on next season's schedule:
This isn’t as bad as it used to be, as NBC isn’t as painful to watch as Versus once was, but I’d still rather spend my time Ken and Mick.
And won't you look at that, looks like NBC still believes in the Wings. I think I’m coming around too.
They just want to repeat over and over, "The Red Wings really have lost a step without captain Nick Lidstrom, their dynasty is over". Even when we're gonna be winning all those games.
I dunno, Versus was pretty bad but I really, really can't stand McGuire, he is insufferable. Presumably FSD will broadcast at least most home games and a few out of town.
This is a good thing, for me anyway. That means that the games will be broadcast on AFN (Armed Forces Network) and I'll be able to actually watch them on a regular TV, as opposed to a choppy internet feed on a 15" computer screen with Swedish or Rusian commentators.
Not possible to comment on your website, so I ask here: Will some matces be shown at FSD at all? If so, will it be all the other matches who NBC not will broadcast`?
