I’m thinking NESN will have all B’s games. For the others, I’d think NHL Network and NBCSN will have them on. Maybe NBC will have weekend games on. When playoffs start, id expect all the networks utilized in a usual year to be used.Any sense of what channels will be used?
Kinda disagree. Toronto/Columbus is going to be good. Columbus was decimated with injuries at the time of the shut down, but will be fully healthy. Tjwy obviously don’t have Panarin and Bob anymore, but that team was a tough out last season and the core of it is back. Canes/Rangers should be good as well. We’re also talking 5-game series so anything could really happen. If Carey Price comes out of this on fire, Pittsburgh could get sent packing.There are really no intriguing matchups in the Eastern Conference. I guess Montreal/Pittsburgh.
Well the Oilers just got better defensively.Mike Green opts out.
Edmonton traded a 4th and Kyle Brodziak for 2 games of Mike Green.
What’s his game? Could you compare him to anyone in the NHL currently?I've commentated on more than a few KHL (and Olympic) games in which Kaprizov played, and played very well relative to that level of competition - I'm really looking forward to seeing how he transitions to the NHL, although of course these aren't exactly the ideal circumstances in which to expect he'll be looking and playing his best.
Heh...it's been a while since I last commentated on him, so I wouldn't like to guess where he is as a player now. He had all the offensive tools a few years ago when he was first acquired by CSKA Moscow, and in the last two years he's converted that promise into more production (30 and 33 goals in his last two seasons, after only 15 the season before that - and remember, the KHL is not a high scoring league by any stretch of the imagination). But I really don't know what he's going to look like; I just know I'm really looking forward to seeing him again.What’s his game? Could you compare him to anyone in the NHL currently?
