More hockey ignorance by the Worldwide Leader In Sports Not Called Hockey

I heard about that. I wouldn't expect them to get the name of every minor person related to hockey that passed this year or anything like that. But to completely miss what happened this summer with all the enforcers and the plane crash is ridiculous.

This is also the network that will pimp out the sparks but not the Kings across the street from where they both play.

ESPN disavows any knowledge of hockey, since the rights are owned by someone else. It's classless but expected. That's why guys like E.J. Hradek have left and all you have for their blinkandyou'llmissit coverage is Burnside/Mullet/etc. Still can't understand why Pierre LeBrun still works for that company, at least he's fair minded.

ESPN is a joke; the entire sportscenter philosophy and execution is so garbage it makes oscar the grouch look like Kate Middleton. Seriously, they suck not only at covering hockey, but at everything else they "cover." Can anyone actually watch more than 5 minutes of sportscenter in one sitting?
That channel is at the cutting edge of pandering to the common masses. It's quite incredible. No shock that they overlooked any story of substance.

No need to watch sportscenter anymore, you can watch highlights without the bs on the networks run by the major sports leagues. I haven't watched a full episode of SC in years. No need to. It went downhill after the Big Show years, when you have a former WWF dumbass and glass eye being your main announcers, its time to look elsewhere.

The plane crash is the biggest tragedy that's happened in any sport in YEARS, whether you're a hockey fan or not. If it was a football or basketball team (pro, college, high school, etc.) you'd get a half hour special on it.

If I'm not mistaken, LeBrun also works for TSN and shows up on Hockey Night in Canada from time to time so he probably spreads his work out.
