    MacLean leaves Hockey Night in Canada


    The Globe and Mail



    9/30/2002

    TORONTO (CP) - Hockey Night in Canada has a gaping hole to fill following Monday's announcement that host Ron MacLean would not be back after 17 years with CBC Sports.



    As the straight man to Don Cherry on Coach's Corner and host of the media panel in the Hot Stove Lounge segment, MacLean was the face of CBC's Saturday night NHL show as well as a integral part of the network's Olympic Games coverage.



    But Nancy Lee, the CBC's head of sports, said her department was unable to reach an agreement on a new contract with MacLean.



    ``We made an offer, we had discussions on Friday and again (today) and it wasn't accepted,'' said Lee, who added she was surprised an agreement couldn't be reached with MacLean.




    ``I am and I'm very disappointed by it. As of last week I wouldn't have said that we couldn't reach a deal.''



    MacLean, represented by NHL super agent Don Meehan, was reportedly looking for $600,000 a year in his new deal after earning $400,000 a year in his old contract.



    ``It was not a substantial raise. It was a raise,'' MacLean told CBC Newsworld in Calgary. ``I honestly absolutely don't believe money was at the root of why it was rejected.''



    Lee would not go into details about the negotiations.



    ``I think money played a part in it,'' said Lee. ``It was a gap in the expectations and that's the No. 1 thing that kept us from reaching an agreement.



    ``Offers go back and forth. At the end of the day, the offer that the CBC put forward, that was the offer that Ron was unable to accept.''



    When CBC unveiled the look of its revamped Hockey Night in Canada in September, MacLean was part of a conference call with executive producer Joel Darling and at the time both were confident a new contract agreement would be reached.



    HNIC now has less than two weeks to replace MacLean with its season opener set for Oct. 12. Lee said the search will begin Tuesday.



    ``We have excellent talent that work on Hockey Night in Canada,'' said Lee. ``It won't be a scramble.''



    Don Cherry, MacLean's long-time partner on Coach's Corner, signed a new deal last week reportedly worth $700,000 a year.



    ``All I'm going to say is I can't believe it and I really believe that they both will get back together,'' said Cherry. ``I didn't think it would get this far.''



    Cherry said he is not yet wondering who will be his sidekick on the Coach's Corner segment.



    ``No way,'' said Cherry. ``I'm thinking positive that Ron will be there.''



    MacLean indicated he hadn't completely given up hope that a contract couldn't be worked out.



    ``We're a bit stunned and hope there's an out-of-the-box idea that we haven't thought of that would see a resolution,'' he said.



    MacLean's work has earned him four Gemini awards as best sports broadcaster in Canada.



    He began his career in his native Red Deer, Alta., before joining the CBC in 1986. He became national host of Hockey Night In Canada in 1987, replacing Dave Hodge.
    Nooo!!!!!

    Don Meehan has priced yet another person out of the market. Is this guy a good agent or what? Yes McLean is great and I can't imagine grapes without him, but someone like Kelly Hrudy would fit in just fine.
    Look for McLean at a supermarket opening near you earning a quarter of what he did last year............
    Some mighty fine degotiating there Meehan.

    Yeah Meehan is just wonderful.

    OK, I saw the best Hockey Lives Here commercial on TSN- they basically combined all of them into one, with one I hadn't seen before, the Flames captain (sent to the minors- wtf!) shaving in the mens room with his skate, hee, added in. It was cool!

    SCOTT OAKE IS A FUCKING RETARD. Scott Russell handled the Western Confrence Finals this year and he did OK, if anyone takes over PLEASE GOD if you have ANY decency NOT SCOTT OAKE. Scott Oake and Don Cherry? Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME? Scott Russell could handle Don Cherry better than Oake. Hell, let's have Kelly Hrudey and Don Cherry sword fight in the parking lot to the death and then the winner can take over for good. Hopefully it'll be Kelly. Oh, even better, have Kelly host! Kelly's charismatic! Kelly's hot!

    NOT SCOTT OAKE.

    It looks like CBC and MacLean are negotiating again. Meaning all those folk who called/e-mailed in high scream what wienees the top brass were. Report in Tor Star says they were apart by 25 G a year. One of those fools spends that in country club fees....Doh

    For whomever wanted the Maple leaf wallpaper.

    I hope Ron comes back, but wouldn't it be a bit strange that he was all, I'm done! and then he goes back on his word?

    But the thing is, Don Cherry needs him. Ron has kept him out of trouble countless times. Ron is always saying to him before segments, don't say that. Don't say that.

    Speaking of which... MY STUPID AVS TRADED DRURY TO CALGARY! They traded two of their top forwards for an OK defenseman. Why why why?????

    They BETTER bring back Ron. UGHHHH!

    And who did Scott Oake have to suck.........
    .. up to to get so much work at CBC? He is terrible and everyone I know detests him. He's a HORRIBLE interview.

    If Ron does go, and I just don't see that happening, Kelly is the only one that can come close.

    The only one.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Ron and CBC are reportedly negotiating today. MacLeans agent Don Meehan has had calls about his availability from both sides of the border. Don't even think about the horrible prospect of Oake being a major sportscaster on HNIC - too horrible .....


    Tucker shines on first line as the Leafs beats Montreal 4-3

    From Canadian Press

    TORONTO (CP) - If he keeps playing like he did on Wednesday night, Darcy Tucker could be a mainstay on Toronto's No. 1 line.

    Just don't tell him that. Tucker scored the winning goal with less than a minute to play and goaltender Ed Belfour got his first win in a Maple Leafs uniform as Toronto beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in a pre-season game. "For me, it doesn't matter who I play with," said Tucker, who played on the team's top unit with Mats Sundin and Alexander Mogilny. "Whoever anybody plays with, they've got to go out there and help the team win."

    Tie Domi, Shayne Corson and Tom Fitzgerald scored the other goals for Toronto (3-3-1) while Yanic Perreault scored twice and Mariusz Czerkawski added a single for the Canadiens (6-1-0).

    The Tucker-Sundin-Mogilny line looked sharp all night, directing several quality chances at Jeff Hackett.

    Tucker's winning goal came on a slapshot from the point to the left of Hackett.

    To all of those who doubted my Darcy

    both Tucker and Domi can actually play hockey ......
