  1. Any predictions for the Stanley Cup Final? I have Chicago in 7.

  2. The Studio 42 crew is not going to be on site?

  3. Don’t forget about RDS and their coverage.

  4. No Kevin Weekes or Kelly Hrudey on the Studio 42 Panel?

    • Kelly Hrudey was on the panel during the pregame show. For the Stanley Cup finals, Kevin Weekes is on NHL Network.

  5. Even though the Leafs and Pens didn’t make the finals, I’ll still watch. Why? Because it’s two of the original six in the finals, and they’ve never met in the finals before! I’ll be pulling for the Blackhawks, but my money is on the Bruins to take it in five games.

  6. This is going to be a great way to cap off a season that didnt start off as well. if this goes more than 5 games, expect a rating bonanza in the US. I’ll be pulling for the Hawks in 7

  7. NBC Seattle will not be showing the finals. I assume it will be on King’s alternate channel Kong.

  8. The NHL international feed will have Dave Strader and Joe Micheletti in the booth.

  9. Anyone know why Jim Ralph was let go by the Leafs and their radio broadcasts?

    Is Rogers looking for someone younger? A former leaf player? It seems like an odd move because well Ralph was good.

What do you think?
