I have been wondering where E.J. Hradek has been during the recent NHL Live! Broadcasts. He’s been absent for 2.5 weeks. Word from the show (given during a recent broadcast) is that he’s “on assignment”.
During yesterday’s show (Monday, December 1, 2008), Don LaGreca mentioned that he has received many emails from viewers and fans wondering what’s going on with EJ. “He’s ok, he’s fine, he’s not fired,” is what LaGreca said. Hmm…
I have not been able to find anything on the Internet regarding the Hradek situation. Whatever. Anyways, Jim Dowd is doing a great job filling in. Or…maybe he’s the replacement. 🙂 It’s nice to hear his insight since he’s an NHL player who is currently not playing. Plus, he presents information very well while also remaining entertaining and informative.
So, whatever is up with E.J. Hradek – well, I don’t mind watching and listening to Jim Dowd. In a sense, I prefer him. As I said, it’s fun hearing an NHL player’s insight into the sport. Plus, he’s better eye candy. 🙂 (Did I say that?)
The NHL Live! Show on the NHL Network (Channel 215 on DirecTV) is still a great one.
