Working for CBC Sports and Hockey Night in Canada has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. In October of the 2011-12 NHL season, this dream became a reality.
My ticket into “the ceebs” was making highlight packs. I did that all throughout last season, and once the players and owners stopped bickering, I continued to do it this season.
I’ve had some people watch my highlight packs and ask questions like, “Why didn’t you put this in there?” “Why didn’t you mention this?” “Why did you put that in, but not this?” Those are all fair questions, because whether you agree with the editing decisions I make or not, there is a method to my madness.
Here is a little look at how I make highlight packs. For those of you reading this on the Leafs, Flames, or Oilers Nation websites, I know your team didn't play last night, but they're obviously regulars on Hockey Night in Canada, so you may like this, too.

I'm excited to show you guys this new pilot project! We don't have a name yet, but we're going to be talking about sports over beer at Tallboys' in downtown Toronto at 838 Bloor Street.
For the first week, I sit down for a pop with Jeff Veillette aka Jeffler of Leafs Nation, and Thomas Drance of Canucks Army, along with myself (Steve Dangle) to talk about Leafs goaltending, Canucks goaltending, tampering, and more.

Bad officiating? Sure. But the effort sucked just as bad, if not worse.

Nazem Kadri putting up points and I'm speaking Russian. This season is way different than last season.
