Not all of the NBC guys are terrible. The NHL has the deal with NBC because they agreed to put every playoff game on national tv, and ESPN wouldn’t do that, they aren’t even able to do that. It isn’t just “hurdur espn hates hockey and refuses to show it”.
So we’re back to the whole would you rather have what you call “shitty” coverage, or no coverage at all.
I can’t speak for you, but personally, I’ll take NBC over nothing for some games.
There is a 10 year contract with NBC and complaining won’t change that.
