Whoa, wtf?  Did NOT see that coming.  I thought NBCSN was booming...?  I thought between hockey, Nascar, and even horse racing (the Triple crown mainly) it had some strong anchors in programming and live sports, and then you add in everything else it showed.  

Personally, I'm a bit saddened to see the NHL relegated to the USA network.  Sure it's a major channel on cable networks, but to me it is most well known for shows/movies/sitcoms and things like that - live sports is not at all what comes to mind when I first think of the USA cable channel, and I fear it's going to result in a pretty big decline in viewership.  

NBCSC was at least a well known network due to having the NBC tag at the prefix of the channel's name. 

Any idea who's going to do the commentary and announcing for the games?

I personally don't remember it, but I feel like I've read that USA used to air hockey back in the early 90s.

As for the commentators, I think it'll stay the same, just move host channels. Complete guess though.

Well... I feel like this is a good thing? the fact that he thinks that there's even a slight chance that Hischier could return before Bratt... when we know that Bratt will most likely come back this week. could mean that nico is very close?

Funny how Rangers fans were saying that Hughes was a bust last year, but to give Lafreniere time this year lol. It is what it is. 

They’ve got plenty to worry about themselves (in the very early going)...starting with their goalies not exactly brickwalling it at the moment.

Sadly it felt like some of our own crowd felt that Jack might be a bust too (and this comment isn’t directed at anyone in particular).  Glad he’s off to a strong start.

I’m not 100% sure anyone ever said that.

They did. Trust me, I can dig up the posts. To your credit you weren’t one of them though.

I certainly was not, I appreciate your pointing that out.

I know we’re all killing Palms right now, but this is kind of interesting...

we actually have 2 lines on there. 

I guess he hasn’t been a liability yet, he’s just threatening to be a liability.

With Palms, that’s what I was talking about before.  His numbers look much better than his actual game has been. If you saw his stats without watching him play, you’d wonder why he’s getting so heavily criticized.

Bratt coming back tomorrow if he passes a positive test? That's fvcking good news. Him, Vats and Nico will give us a huge boost.

EDIT: Team is taking the day off tomorrow, but he'll be cleared to join the team if he passes the test.

Devils optioned Merkeley to the taxi squad and added Bratt to the active roster.  Not sure if that means he will play tonight, but he is close to a return to the lineup, which should help.

Would be kind of weird to send Merk down if Bratt isn't even going to play. I would have thought they'd have him practice for a bit before jumping right in but maybe not.

Not sure where to vent this but I listen to the All About the Jersey/Garden State of Hockey podcast and some days it is really hard with how much this one guy mispronounces every name in the book. Idk how someone can watch that much hockey and pronounce some of these names the way he does. I enjoy the podcast but it's just super annoying.

Is that the one where the one guy pronounces Binghamton wrong? 

I listen to a few different ones and tend to confuse them

Hoping it's just a false positive, we are really gonna need the other guys to step up and win some faceoffs... 

 

Agreed, how else will we preserve our 26% face-off win percentage?

We can't catch a break right now lol. Imagine how much PK time Palms will get with Travis out.

So I guess every useful player we have is gonna go through this sh!t eh? 

Get the feeling we'll see our fair share of this, throughout the league.  The New fvcking Normal.
