'NHL on NBC' set to begin
Mike Emrick (play-by-play), John Davidson (analyst) and Pierre McGuire (reporter) will comprise the lead broadcast team of the NHL on NBC, and Bill Clement will host the NHL on NBC studio show joined by analyst Ray Ferraro. NBC drops the puck on its inaugural season Saturday, Jan. 14 at 2 p.m. ET with regional coverage of three games, headlined by Western Conference powerhouse the Detroit Red Wings facing off against Jaromir Jagr and the resurgent New York Rangers.One can only hope the broadcasts look better than what OLN has served up so far.
The one note that really caught my eye on the presser? "Mark Messier to be guest studio analyst."
