Stanley Cup Final Announcers

The CBC broadcasters have been set for the Stanley Cup final, with Bob Cole and Greg Millen calling all of the action between the Pens and Wings starting Saturday night. William Houston of the Globe and Mail details it here.

Analysis: Cole is old and senile. It should be Jim Hughson’s time to shine. Although Cole’s work this year has been better than in previous seasons, Hughson is the superior announcer. Axing Harry Neale from the finals is a smart move, although Millen will likely have worn out his welcome by the time the second period of game three rolls around.
