Harry Neale takes Buffalo job

Hockey commentator Harry Neale is leaving Leafs TV in Toronto to take a game analysis job with the Buffalo Sabres.
Neale, 70, will continue to appear on Hockey Night in Canada, although his workload this season has been reduced.
He should make quite the tandem with the legendary Rick Jeanneret.

As a long-time Sabres fan, this should be one interesting matchup! Hopefully their chemistry works out and R.J. sticks around for a few more years to see Buffalo win a CUP!

As a life long fan of Hockey Night In Canada loved to hear Bob Cole and Harry Neale. Now I can't wait to hear him along side R.J. on the Sabres broadcast.

Chris Zelkovich has something slightly different to say about his new workload.

Though the 70-year-old analyst will continue to work for Hockey Night In Canada, he won't be calling as many Toronto games as he has in the past.

Neale and Bob Cole often worked almost exclusively on Leaf games, but the CBC will be moving its announcing crews around more this season.

I'm just glad to be hearing less of both Neale and Cole this year - best decision HNIC has ever made.

wow. As happy as I am for Harry, our loss is most certainly Greg Millen's gain. Which is of course, our loss. Ugh. Maybe Cole will retire, before the Leafs have to face the Canucks again next year. What a joy it was to hear the names of players so brutally mispronounced lol. Anyways, just wanted to say how much I dig your work as a former Kamloops-ian.

Why couldn't he have left HNIC and stayed with Leafs TV to do this?

Though really, the problem with that tandem is Cole. The sooner he retires, the easier it will be to stomach Hockey Night in Toronto.

Although I will say this, Neale's better than Cole.
