Where to watch NHL playoff hockey

Postby kjmcw » Wed May 23, 2007 7:43 pm

I need to watch some hockey next week, but my 13" TV sucks. Any suggestions of a bar that will offer it on a big screen?

What you should be asking is- where can I get the Stanley Cup finals on CBC?

Sadly, probably not too many places in Madison.

Quite true.

I'm willing to settle for NBC, to whom CBC is lending to NBC for the finals. I wouldn't be surprised if Cherry gets more time on air on NBC than on CBC. But no Ron MacLean, and horrible color commentating in general. You can always catch Cherry (the highest paid public servant in North America?) at http://www.cbc.ca/coach

Oh Lord, the Ann Coulter of hockey broadcasting? No, thank you.

Although I did like his work on those early Ornette Coleman albums...

I hate the persona of Don Cherry and his offensive remarks. However, it should be noted that he actually IS a hockey broadcaster, and can focus and analyze plays beyond just goal-scoring. I wouldn't watch CBC for Cherry, i would watch it for Bob Cole, Harry Neale, and the sometimes ref who keeps Cherry on a leash--the brilliant Ron Maclean.
