The Official NHL 2008-2009 Offseason Thread



Will the Wings repeat? Can the HNIC theme song be saved? Is Sid the Kid still crying in his beer? Will Don Cherry ever, EVER find a decent sportsjacket?

Discuss here.

CBC has acquired rights to the HNIC song!

And Toronto Maple Leafs have a new coach.

(okay, back to soccer thread I go)

I was in the other room when it was announced and I swore they said the CTV but I thought I heard wrong but nope, it is the CTV who has bought the song!

fucking CBC!

I can't believe my tax dollars pay for these morons...

If they start off HNIC with that Nickleback song for now on Wayne Brady is going to have to choke a bitch...

Yes

I'm glad CBC didn't get the rights to the song - the author/publisher refused their $1million offer. I don't think taxpayer money should have spent more than a million bucks on a song.

Here's the article I mentioned in the other thread:

CTV acquires exclusive rights to 'The Hockey Theme'

I just don't get why the CBC is willing to shell out $100grand for some person to come up with a new song, but they're not able to negotiate a deal for the HNIC song.



Whatever. Just more proof that CBC is losing out when it comes to hockey (and other sports), I guess.

According to TSN. CA:

Defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom and goalie Chris Osgood will be guests on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday. They're slated to appear on the late-night talk show, with the Cup, at 11:35 p.m. ET.

Hope I remember to catch that...though I'll have to DVR as I hear there's a basketball game scheduled

Any word on Barry Mullet and the Lightning job?

So-ooooo....are Leafs fans happy with the Ron Wilson hire?


On an unrelated note, the Chicago Wolves won the Calder Cup last night, beating the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Pittsburgh's farm team, in 6 games.

This means that they are now officially the best hockey team on the planet.

I don't think it really matters who is coaching at this point, Jesus Christ himself couldn't get the current line up into the playoffs...

They really need to clean house and bring in some new young blood...

Regardless, it has been said before and bears repeating; if the MLSE board itself doesn't change their methods this is all a moot point.

Agreed.

No, but there's talk of the team going there to "celebrate." And we all know what kind of celebrations take place there.

Trevor Linden retired this morning. It's a sad day for Canucks fans, now that he won't be on the ice any more. Hopefully he'll get a job somewhere within the Canucks organization - he'd be a fantastic asset.
