Ugh - check out the link....
10 more years of NBC / Versus.
10 more years of Doc, Edzo, 'lil Baldy McGuire, Milbury, Jonesy, JR, Engblom....and hopefully a bit more of Ken Daniels.
I was so rooting for ESPN to pick hockey back up, but alas, it was not to be. Sounds like NBC/VS had a matching clause, much like a restricted Free Agent, they could match any competing offer to the NHL. So Turner, Fox and ESPN all tried but either dropped out or simply didn't win this one.
Emrick has got to retire - or he risks becoming Harry Carey. Other than Edzo and McGuire - I don't hate the rest of them, but geez....getting past those two is tough sometimes.
