Broadcast Booth Videos

The view from the broadcast booth in Edmonton

Throughout the last year I’ve been taking some quick videos of the different visiting broadcast booths in the WHL. I still have several to tick off my checklist. They aren’t that detailed. It’s just a chance to give an idea what my vantage point looks like in the rinks across the WHL. I’m posting them here and I’ll also create a tab on the blog here so I can update the list and you can access them whenever you feel like taking a look.

Enmax Centrium in Red Deer

Rexall Place in Edmonton

Enmax Centre in Lethbridge

Wetern Financial Place in Cranbrook

ShoWare Center in Kent

    Great work Shaun! Shaun looked at the standing last night & if the Warriors would have pulled out a win last night in Edm…you know where we would have been sitting in the standing..I am shocked Mark hasn’t pulled the trigger to try to get that one player who could put us over the top…I feel with this team the way it is going its another yr without playoff hockey. Can the Broncos take another yr not making the playoffs? I know you might say we have been in every game, but good teams win the close ones & dig deep to find that extra gear. I think its time we look at our 20′s. Are we getting enough production from these guys night in night out?

      I know there’s been a lot of talk throughout the season but so far just talk. Making the right deal is tough there aren’t a lot of home runs out there. Most of the time these days you get huge deals when one team gives up on a season and another is making a run. Teams that are still figuring out what they will be usually aren’t in a great spot to make the huge deals. I think the organization believes this team can be a solid playoff team, but at the same time are they willing to sacrifice the future prospects and picks that are the key to the rebuilding core they’ve been building up to add to that group? I doubt that at least not in a big way. I’m also pretty sure they’re not ready to move their top veterans for younger guys because they see every night this team is so close to winning that they believe it has more to offer.

      It’s a tough spot for a big deal. Easier to make some minor ones… but we’ll see.

      I am not just pumping up their tires when I say I really believe this team can end up in a good spot. They are for the most part excellent defensively, battle hard, have good goaltending, create lots of chances and have good special teams. They had a really nice weekend before their road trip winning against PA and Brandon. Was the Alberta swing frustrating? Sure, but honestly Edmonton and Calgary are going to beat most teams even if you put up a good fight. The Red Deer game was tough to swallow… but they played so well and the Rebels have been on a great run since Sutter took over.

      Excuses? No, but it’s not like they lost 3 in a row on the road convincingly to last place teams. I think if they generally play as well as they did against Red Deer, Calgary and Edmonton that they’ll win more than they lose. We’ll see I guess It’s a long season and things are still very tight.

        I would think if the team is still in the bottom three at Christmas in terms of winning percentage, then yes there is a valid idea to move out the 19′s, hopefully for quality young bodies, and not guess work draft picks. With that said,in general I feel the problem is the lack of goal scoring on this roster. The ability for any player to score at will is not there, and sadly likely can’t be acquired via trade (unless you want to say goodbye to a good chunk of our quality 15&16 yr old guys).

        Perhaps what this team could do is get creative and move talent for talent. Maybe a Nedomlel for a Euro forward to help out (obviously other moves would need to be made to add to the blue line).

        The one thing I will say however is with the price paid for players so far, one cannot help but wonder what Scarlett, Nedomlel, Lowry are worth to a contending team. Perhaps (as much as it pains me to say it because I desperately want playoff hockey), it is in the best interest to leverage these guys for more talent in the 15-17yr old age group to create an elite team in a couple of years? And if the prices aren’t crazy, then we should be able to get into the playoffs, and then you never know. A hot goaltender has done crazy things in the playoffs, and the teams D first style could grind out a few wins.
