Wow, a broadcaster from the Habs hockey world, now in 'Tarahna', this will go over well with the fans.

Then again, looking (or trying not to look) at the state of the Habs lineup right now, and their effed up GM, perhaps Leafs fans will show some compassion. Tavares heals all wounds right?

What happened to Romanuk? I liked him and he had already been banished from the scene after his days at TSN


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

John Bartlett is a very good hockey broadcaster - friendly & folksy.
Sad to say that Romy was starting to lose the plot.
Too often he would make simple mistakes in his play call.
Mostly misidentify players - for those who noticed ( I did) it was too often for comfort.
Two to three "mistakes" per game. 
Something was wrong.

I'm a Habs fan so I heard Mr. Bartlett quite a bit last season.
I'll miss him on those telecasts.
And Romy's departure doesn't surprise me whatever the reason may be.

Beyond the misidentifying players, too often  Romanuk and Millen would try to out story each other while playing was going on.

Bryan Mudryk has been named as the new TSN television play-by-play man for the Montreal Canadiens. 

We'll see how that goes.
