Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette writes that the CBC, in an effort to re-brand its flagship franchise, is still working out the details of who will appear on the show.
Milbury’s addition raises the question of what the future holds for another HNIC regular with Boston connections – P. J. Stock. There won’t be much room on the Hotstove with ring master Ron MacLean, Milbury and Scott Morrison taking up three of the four spots. HNIC likes to throw in Eric Duhatschek, Pierre LeBrun or Al Strachan in the fourth spot, and that leaves little or no room for Stock.
I like the addition of Milbury, especially to the Satellite Hot Stove.
