Brassard should never attend training camp again. He's been great this season so far.

Ryan still without a goal but looking very engaged so far this season. That line has been a pleasure to watch.

Ohhh yeaaahhh, great win. Brassard and Ryan were really coming together so of course Ryan injures his hand again, man if it wasnt for bad luck ... Great win for #theSystem #theTImeOut. Sens playing the system well, giving great support and some good sticks. That was a big win, woulda been way back out of the playoffs with a loss. From that Oduya turnover, coulda been all over, but a great defensive turnaround again. That feels good

Weird game to judge tonight with so few powerplays or PKs.

But Boucher continues to lean on Ceci. He quietly played almost 23 mins tonight, not far behind Karlsson. Oduya and Phaneuf firmly lodged in the #3-4 spots, hovering around the 20 mins mark. Claesson was very noticeable, but played only 16 mins.

Wideman gets sheltered (just over 12 mins). Not surprising.

I am sending this email because I am disgusted by the color commentating, not just in this game but in others this season involving the leafs. Jim Hughson clearly, laughed sounding happy that Ottawa scored putting the leafs out of it. It is not just me, as I comment in a hockey forum and several fans urged me to send this. There have been other instances this season where he seems to be happy when we lose. If the leafs are doing well, he knit picks at their weakness' and hails the other team for trying their best.
I have been a fan for a long time. There is no surprise Joe Bowen is a huge leaf fan, but he never did things like this. He was as even as you can be. Hughson is making the games, hard to watch, with his constant bashing of Toronto.
I would appreciate an email back. I would like to know what is going to be done to rectify this. This is not the first time he has sounded this way, and it is very upsetting as a fan to have to listen to someone like do this every game he calls.

JUST SENT THIS TO CBC MEDIA RELATIONS

I replied with further disgust at his actions. While they cant censor him on live TV (necessarily) I have never heard an announcer in my life, laugh in that manner, for any game, for any team.


I'm dying to know when someone will clue this guy in. He's a riot.

If you email them mention you are part of a Maple Leaf forum and that many fans are sick of Hughson doing this crap. Like I wanted to mute the game, good thing I didnt because that laugh is un called for. I am excited to see the next reply. No way I will know if they slap him on the wrist so I will be asking for tickets to the next game so I do not have to hear him. I wanted so bad to mention Paul Romanuk, but alas no point he didnt call tonight. Romanuk isnt bias at least, he is just really slow minded and cant catch up to the play even though he has 15 seconds time to catch up (real time vs time we hear it).


Still thinks CBC actually runs HNIC. And somehow thinks Joe Bowen isn't absolutely terrible at his job.

jrgtml67, post: 137029613, member: 131775 wrote:I dont get what you are saying. It is HNIC so CBC carries the game, always been that way. The sickening thing is this. Joe Bowen is such a huge leaf fan BUT even though that is the case I never heard him laugh at the opposition ever. He just freaked out when we scored "holy mack a na what a goal." That is fine to me. Jimbo never sounds excited when Toronto scores " Matthews walks in shoots he scores..." mute button " f matthews piece of," (LOL). I think he goofed and missed his mute button tonight because his laugh cut out to the other commentator. Either way I voiced how disgusted I am as a leaf fan to hear a commentator constantly trash us. We could be playing real well and he doesnt care (see NY game). That NY game they come back tie it he is giddy asf. We take the lead and win...oh well. Like gimme a break. No analysis about officiating, like tonight, his partner brought up how the face off call could have gone both ways, while Jim is like "oh ya, yup he was out of line that is a penalty."


Here he shows actual awareness in saying TSN doesn't run HNIC... Seems like the light will go on any minute now...

jrgtml67, post: 137029779, member: 131775 wrote:I am not crying about it. I am doing something about it. I want a change to this garbage. Fans piled together to save Ron Maclean, and rightly so. I dont care, I watch every game, I dont want to mute it. Even if they talk to him and say look we got a complaint, change your tone. Is it entirely possible he loses calling the leafs..sure it is. I bet I am not the only fan emailing in. In fact several posters have asked me for the email. So if you dont mind hearing it, then why did you complain about TSN not caring when that makes no sense, because TSN has nothing to do with HNIC.

Every game this year, he is routing for the opposition and you can tell. Even if that opposition is not a Canadian team. He never sounds excited when we score, it is getting ridiculous. Anyway if you search CBC public relations you will find an email--the guy's name is Chuck. He replied saying he flagged my email and is reporting it to Rogers media, but that they cannot help what is said. To which I responded, I get that, but this is not the first time, and Joe Bowen a known leaf fan never ever laughed at the other teams effort, and if we were playing like crap he said it. Hughson just keeps insulting away, and it is not fair I have to watch a game, and listen to my team be talked about in that manner.


His tears sustain me.

If every leaf fan here on this board sent that same email tonight in succession they would have no choice but to listen. Look at that black guy (forgot his name) that constantly hated on the jays, and made fun of Canadians, he mysteriously got replaced by Mr. John Smoltz, and I have not heard of him working for that station in any capacity. To all who read this, do us all a favor email CBC about this joke. If they are not leaf fan that is fine, but to mock us, and make it well known every damn broadcast, and tonight the last straw laugh on live TV that should be the end of the line. I personally will keep on them for this. If I have to email them every game. We finally have a great team, and great young talent, and we are subjected to listen to those bone heads, at least Simpson did not laugh. In fact he pointed out Ottawa should have got the penalty for faceoff violation. He is bias, but he does not take sides, at least not like Jimmy Canuck. Too bad that team is in a rebuild.

Call me old fashioned, but I kind of like Jim and Craig laughing at the Leafs.

Brassard has natural goal scoring ability. Since he really started to fit in during the playoffs and now into this season, the guy is clutch around the net. Put him in a good scoring spot and get him the puck, and he will score at a high rate. Ottawa has always had a lot of centers that could generate "shots" but not as high percentage of goals. Vermette, Zibanejad, Fisher were all pucks on net guys. Brassard seems to be more of a pucks in net guy.

I know it's easy to jump on it now when he's hot as fire, but he does seem to be able to bury the puck. It's a skill. I like how he's carrying it more too and his passing is also pretty high end. What he and Ryan have will get better as the season goes on I believe, the injury hurts. They work well with each other. Two guys who can simply shoot to score and both guys can thread passes. Older guys too, so they should be able to be leaned on again in the playoffs.

The Zibanejad/Brassard deal was a weird one, but a simple one too. I think both teams are happy with the result. While Zibane is cheaper today and will be around longer, I don't think that was ever the worry. I think the worry in Ottawa was locking him up long term and him never developing into a true #1 center. They get Brassard who is a patch filler in the same role, more mature for the playoffs and can do the same job as Zibanejad. I actually think a big plus to Ottawa on that trade was that Brassard would be done playing earlier than Zibanejad. That's certainly something you never here in a trade, but I think they're hoping Brown or someone else brought in will be a true #1 center and not have an issue with Zibanejad being paid like a #1 and getting bumped down the list.

Really, it's probably the same internal talk they're having about Turris now. Is he a #1 center and will he be the best center in Ottawa in five years? Probably not, so why pay him like one.

Tough calls all around but Uncle Pierre Dorion has proven he'll live by the sword and die by the sword.

For the record I like Turris and think he'd be a second line center on any Cup winning team. I'd sign him for 4 to 5 years, but I'd have trouble going longer.

Just to clarify, Zibane is actually more expensive than Brass now.
