Congrats to Cassie! I’m thrilled that your fantastic season as a hockey analyst has led to a much deserved promotion to a network we’re not likely to see at all. We will miss you, just as we did Mike Milbury and Pierre Maguire when they were pulled to American networks.

Hah. I still don't mind Maguire, I enjoyed having the oddball in broadcasts and interviews to throw in whatever wackiness to make the broadcasts less bland and boring.

Milbury even had his head scratching but funny moments.

Wow. Truly mind blowing. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I honestly believe she is not that good at her job. Well unless the Flames are playing.

She was up against Ray Ferraro, Buck Martinez, and Kevin Bieksa. That means it was both for in game analysts (Ferraro, Martinez) and studio analysts (Bieksa). Really is just puzzling and looks like it was a diversity award.

And I can't say anything different about the play-by-play award. Harnarayan Singh beat out Chris Cuthbert, Dan Shulman, and Mark Lee. Cuthbert and Shulman are two of the finest play-by-play people on the planet. The only way it makes sense is they picked him because of his skin colour.

We're just handing out awards like candy now!

Congrats Kr55 - you're the Oilfans Exceptional Poster of the Year!

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/21/World_Cup_of_Hockey.jpg/220px-World_Cup_of_Hockey.jpg

You get the 1996 World Cup Trophy! This trophy is unique among hockey hardware, in that it was only ever awarded once! For some reason, it created an 8-year gap before another World Cup was played, at which time they decided to go with some strange piece of plastic as a replacement! The good news is that we wouldn't stick you with some weird tupperware trophy (besides, it will apparently be used again sometime, while yours is completely irrelevant now!)

Given the American team that won the thing, I can only assume that the trophy is in rough shape. You may want to wear gloves when you handle it...

Holy crap man, that's even funnier, the two absolute worst in the business each get an award, for being the "Best" at what they do.. rofl Singh especially, they slide him in for one abbreviated season, sounds like a student they pulled fresh out of NAIT doing Ookpik games, and he's crowned king of of Canadian NHL PxP ... hilarity.
Without realizing it, who ever created the award just made it a meaningless one.
Looks like we'll be stuck with these "Award Winning" media fixtures until they retire now.. OR .. until Sportsnet loses out in the bidding to TSN after their contract is up... then we can get rid of McLean and Hrudey as well.. oh please ... 🙏🏻

Singh definitely improved through the season, but holy frick that's giving an award to the D student who made it to a C, when the rest of the class all had As and Bs.

As for Cassie, thankfully it's a going away gift. I liked her to start, but her anti Oilers, pro everyone else bias grated that away.

Not sure why people think Cassie isn't still working for Rogers. She's going to do some ESPN as a side gig, but she's never said she's leaving HNIC. She's even married into the Flames Org, so they aren't moving. Expect a lot of floorboards on the wall next year.

Awards (all of them) are kind of stupid because it all subjective anyways. It's the worst when it is a committee of gatekeepers trying their best to look progressive, artsy, and legitimate (look at the Rotten Tomato scores of Paddington 2 and Green Book and tell me which one won Best Picture).

Anyways, I think Harnarayan Singh is good.

Again - awards are subjective and stupid. Best to ignore them.

I like Singh, too. You can tell he really loves the game, he gets excited at all the right moments. He had a learning curve, but I definitely think he's good.

Yeah I really like Singh to for 99% of the game. It’s a pleasing voice. I just don’t need anymore vibratos during the goal call. Say what’s needed and don’t be the star of the call.

Interesting how different perceptions can be. I see Singh’s weakest element is that he has absolutely no clue when to be excited. confused2

I liked him alot more at the end of the season when he was more comfortable. In 5-10 years I'm sure he'll be solid because it seems like it's working hard to get better, as I observed through the season.
