Did BBC America ditch TNG for Voyager?

I think they do one night a week of nothing but TNG and one night a week of nothing but Voyager.

Now Lehtonen gets a shutout? How very Jason Arnott of him.

He has been very good. Made some saves he had absolutely no business making.

He was in perfect position for all those Brett Ritchie shots that either hit him square in the chest or punished the glass behind him.

Kari gets a shutout and we heap praise on their goalie. So TSF.

Every shitty goalie gets a shutout once in a while when it doesn't matter. See Darcy Wakaluk.

Dell has a sweet mask and some impressive sample sized stats this season.

I enjoyed how we had the puck during a San Jose delayed penalty, and it still took a good 30 seconds for us to break out of our own zone. And then we went offsides.

I can't tell you the last time I actually watched this team on TV. I attribute this to razor being absolutely atrocious as PBP

The broadcast is awful. Razor as PBP removes all of the fun he normally brings. Ludwig isn't the guy for the color job, but I don't blame Ludwig for it because what we got was never the plan. P

It's going to be viewed as cold hearted, but my guess for next season is the Stars move Razor back to color, go hire another PBP guy, and no longer keep the seat open for Strader to fill in when he can. They will come across like jerks for essentially firing a guy for getting cancer, but there's no way they allow what happened this season repeat itself with the 3rd string guy they thought would be a ten game fill in ends up doing the color job the whole season.

This season has been so frustrating that even our usually reliable broadcast is in shambles.

I'm not a big fan of Razor in the PBP chair either. I personally prefer a more steady voice in that chair with the more colorful character in the analyst role. Maybe its just because it has been a miserable season, but his over-the-top enthusiasm for relatively routine shots or plays has grated on me.

I've been watching some Kings games recently and it is comforting to hear Ralph. Maybe he and Razor can kiss and make up by next season.

I don't think Ralph's beef is solely with Razor. I think he pretty much feels the way Modano does about the Stars in general.

I had a personal e-mail exchange with Ralph some years ago. I think it was around 2010 or so. Even back then, I got the impression that he really didn't care about it all that much. It was actually a pretty awkward exchange.

It's kind of a shame. I know Ralph was passionate about the Stars at one point. You could hear it in his voice until like 2005 or so. I'm not sure what all happened. But, you could tell by the way he called the games that he had checked out years ago.

I don't think he'd want a full time gig anywhere.

I think Razor's been fine. He combines play-by-play with great color pretty well.

Of course, I'm comparing that to the national Versus guys, who talk over each other about stupid *poo poo* and tend to ignore whatever's actually happening on the ice.

Played pretty well, even better than Chicago, who looked terrible, but only managed to get one point. Win/Win.

Any points we gain at this point are considered losses by me.

That was definitely a moral loss last night.
