I was always told the camera adds 10 pounds. What they didn't tell me there were three cameras!!
I can tell you there are some developments in the works that will ensure TSN's hockey coverage remains first rate for a long, long time.
Fascinating week in our industry. Thx to many well wishers who said so many kind things re: TSN hockey coverage. Means a lot. It's inspiring
": Overwhelmed by support everyone has shown team this week. Thx to everyone who sends us a msg."/ Good luck, Greg.
is all smiles after his 3rd goal vs USA
If you only have time to watch a short feature, here's 's terrific piece on Jo Drouin's The Shift.

NHL on TSN tonight at 7 pm ET: MTL @ NJD.
World Junior Countdown Show tonight at 10:30 ET on TSN. Details here:
Oh, I would say so. The interweb really is ridiculous. Nonsensical actually.

Not what I said, Bruce. Said Erik's game can be as volatile as P.K.'s but that no question Karlsson is on SWE.
Sources say the NHL and Wayne Gretzky have reached a tentative deal to make him whole from the money he was owed in Phoenix...
CGY also informed USA Hockey that defenceman Pat Sieloff, currently sidelined on AHL Abbotsford, is not being loaned to Team USA for WJC.
CGY told Hockey Canada today Sean Monahan would not be released to play for CAN in the WJC.
": Report: Alex Burrows is out indefinitely after breaking jaw " / The Moj's report is right on.
Can't beat good Canadian pals...
great seats, you know someone? How does it feel to be in a Drake song?
25 players are headed to beginning Dec. 12 for Canada’s National Junior Team selection camp. ROSTER:
If you would like to watch the Hockey Canada national junior team news conference, here's the link:
BTW, to be clear, MIN has agreed to loan Dumba to CAN, hence his name on camp roster today, but if injuries arise in MIN, that could change.
Based on CAN camp roster reported elsewhere, notable omissions that will spark conversation: Max Domi (LDN/PHX) and Darnell Nurse (SSM/EDM).
That's assuming no other NHL players are added to the roster at a later date.
With 15 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies named, head coach Brent Sutter needs to release only two forwards and one defenceman.
As usual, tho, list has already leaked out. Notable news: MIN has loaned defenceman Mat Dumba to Team Canada. He's the only NHLer on list.
Hockey Canada releases its 25-man national junior team final evaluation camp roster at 1 pm ET, with live streaming on tsn.ca.
First TV story ever done on Daniel Alfredsson when he was a rookie and I was a rookie reporter in 1995.
Even if no NHLers are named to final camp tomorrow by Hockey Canada that doesn't preclude them from being added after.
MIN D Matt Dumba remains NHLer most probable to be loaned to Team Canada but Hockey Canada still working through logistics with NHL club(s).
By contrast, 35+ players were invited to final camp last year. 22-man roster must be declared Christmas Day. Final camp opens Dec 12 in TOR.
My expectation is around 25 players, give or take a few, will be invited by Hockey Canada for WJC team. May only need to make a few cuts.
Not sure but I trust you saw the totally revamped U-17 program starting next year? That could be very interesting.
Also, given news of week on rights, been asked a lot about TSN and WJC. TSN has new 10 year deal with Hockey Canada for WJC, WC etc.
On Wednesday at 10:30 pm ET and I will have a 30-minute World Junior Countdown show.
We'll ramp up World Jr coverage this week. Hockey Canada announces final evaluation camp roster tomorrow at 1 pm ET. Streamed live on tsn.ca
Today's panel, live from OTT, is , , Paul Maurice with et moi also in the mix.
NHL on TSN today: DET @ OTT. Return of Alfie. Pre-game show at 5 pm ET. 5:30 for actual game. and with the call.
suffer key injuries to Dennis Wideman (6-8 broken hand) and Sean Monahan (week-to-week broken foot) to add to Gio, Glenny and TJ
I'm not sure a guy with 63 followers and an incredibly inane timeline gets to make rules of what Twitter is. So buzz off.
And if I owe you an email or text, it's coming. Like Christmas. Will try to get back into regular Twitter routine, next week perhaps. G'nite
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends. Hope you guys have as much to be thankful for as I do. Very excited about what future holds.
BTW, absolutely blown away by thousands of Twitter mentions this week on the NHL rights deal. You guys, most of you (LOL), love your TSN.
I'm also in midst of writing another book, which I may be seriously behind sked on. Not to mention in arrears on email/text responses owed.
And it's been a rather eventful, unusual week, not to mention the normal crazy convergence of pre-WJC coverage/prep and busy NHL sked too.
Been a little lax on The Twitter lately. Hectic times. Sold one residence, bought another but renovating, living at cottage, mucho driving.
Happy Thanksgiving Hughsey!! All the best. Take care.
Patrick Roy and Ken Hitchcock trade verbal jabs after Blues' 4-1 win over via
For a second there, I thought you said Jumbo scored 8. We know what he'd do after scoring 4. 8? Heaven help us.
But I would say he's clearly behind Price, Luongo and Smith.
Actually, I believe we were talking about the guys who weren't invited to summer camp. Crawford IMO ahead of ALL we mentioned.
Per Ken Holland, realistically don't expect Pavel Datsyuk (concussion), Todd Bertuzzi (shoulder) back before Dec. 4 vs Flyers
Reminder: Flames/Hawks are on TSN2 - will be on TSN as soon as Leafs/Penguins wraps up.
Leafs finish the period with 0 shots. 5-5 going to OT. Flames are on TSN2 until this one wraps up.
Hawks and Flames game will get underway as soon as Leafs/Pens concludes on TSN. Puck drop is 10:15et/7:15pt. If late, it will start on TSN2
Gretzky: "Absolutely false. I just went to the game for fun." Gretzky said he was in D.C. on another matter and was invited by Ted Leonsis.
Wayne Gretzky's presence at game in WSH last week has prompted rumors he's going to be next president of the Caps. 99 says no truth to them.
NHL on TSN doubleheader tonite: TOR @ PIT now; CHI @ CGY with 10:15 pm ET. Get em while they're hot! Limited time offer.
Otters trade Harper, picks to Bulls for Gaunce
TSN's Insider Trading panel lives. Here you go:
No, but maybe I'll take job at The Globe in my spare time, in which case your services as resident smartass will no longer be req'd.
Much work to be done. Guess I'll have more time to do it. Proud to be associated with all my NHL on TSN colleagues. They're the best! G'nite
In meantime, can only speak for myself, but losing rights changes nothing for me. SportsCentre, That's Hockey, tsn.ca, Twitter, new shows...
...We've got a boatload of gifted, hard-working people at TSN who are up for challenge of keeping TSN as THE source for all things hockey.
If my bosses at TSN/CTV/Bell want to take a tiny fraction of the billions of dollars they offered for NHL rights and invest it...
And that has always been our mandate at TSN, with or without nat'l NHL rights, and I'd like to think that will continue now.
TSN decided then it would, in spite of losing nat'l rights, maintain/intensify efforts to continue as THE source for hockey news and info.
In fact, that's when I quit my fulltime newspaper job to be a fulltime broadcaster.
There's bound to be degree of uncertainty ahead but this isn't first time TSN will be without nat'l NHL rights. It happened from 1998-2002.
Thanks to the many loyal viewers/readers/fans who have reached out tonight. You have no idea how much it means to all of us at TSN.
Obviously, it's very disappointing for us at TSN. We take great pride in doing NHL games and will continue to do so thru to 2014 NHL draft.
TSN's national rights package for NHL games expires at end of this season and isn't being renewed. NHL to announce new CBC-Rogers deal Tues.
Well, that was an interesting, 4+ hour drive home from Sudbury tonite. Could've done it quicker but had to pull over to tweet some news.
Official announcement expected Tuesday by NHL: CBC and Rogers have exclusive English-language NHL rights deal. Believed to be 12 year deal.
Pains me to report this, but NHL closing in on landmark CDN TV deal with two CDN networks. Many years (10+), many billions.
RUS beats OHL 3-2 in shootout. RUS G Ivan Nalimov brilliant, facing 52 shots in 60 minutes, giving up only 1 goal in 8 shots in shootout.
The / story on NHL concussion suit includes what Bettman told me about possible litigation before season:
Great junior hockey barn in Sudbury. Full house on a snowy night.
Former NHL players sue league over concussions: Go to TSN.ca for details.
In Sudbury tonite for OHL vs RUS Subway Super Series. WJC final camp roster released one week from today. Last chance for OHLers to impress.
Now you, and me, can plan our week. This week's NHL on TSN sked: Panel roadie to OTT Sat-Sun for Return of Alfie.
CAR's Kevin Westgarth has phone hearing with NHL tomorrow for hit on OTT's Mark Borowiecki.
