    That was my reaction too! If they don't lure Shae-Lynn back, they are completely insane! What about Crosby, now that he's having jaw surgery? Just don't pair him with Duhamel or he might have a broken nose too!

    I don't think active NHLers are allowed to participate under their union agreements.

    Paul Coffey would be good. He was always considered one of the best skaters in the NHL and he played defence so he has some size to him.

    I mentioned this show in the "Shows Cancelled Too Early" thread. There's still hope for Homefront!

    Great news....It was a fun program and I missed seeing it this past year. Wayne Gretsky would be great for improving number of viewers, and it sure helps figure skating as a sport as well.

    I would prefer to see Shae-Lynn compete as well but considering how I felt with the results of who has won the past two seasons, I would "breathe" easier if she were a judge. I realize she may be quite busy with her "real" job so if she were a guest judge multiple times, maybe that could work.

    In my very opinionated mind, she should have won last season. I was very sad when she didn't.

    That being said, I'm thrilled to bits they are bringing it back.
    Crazy about sports!

    Why did CBC announce their lineup on NHL trade deadline day? Not that I mind; needed some good news today...

    The link doesn’t work for me. Is this the same article?

    One sure thing is that it likely won’t be produced with the same budget. Bristow confirmed that changes had to be made.
    I wonder if this will limit their choices for hockey players/skaters to those who live in or near the GTA?

    YAY!

    Much as it would be nice, I doubt Shae Lynne Bourne would be brought on the show as the second judge. They've always had a hockey player as the second permanent judge. I would actually like to see that spot filled by one of the players who has previously been on the show and actually has some idea of just how much work has gone into learning those skills & programs.

    Exactly!!! I was hoping the CBC would do that, as it's a natural lead in to Sochi and gives them a chance to really promo their coverage of the Games to Canada. Can NOT wait!!

    I too hope for Paul Kariya. What about Ronnie Francis? I remember he used to be a pretty smooth skater back in the day.

    I could happily watch Paul Coffey skate around a rink in circles. His skating skills are second to none.
    As one of my friends said once, "Paul Coffey invented skating."

    Totally agree on the choice of hockey player. I'd like to see Georges Laracques(sp?).

    I suggest Barbara Underwood as a judge. She coaches power skating to NHLers. She lives in Toronto where the show is produced. She's a retired pairs figure skater and a former competitor on the show. She's a former TV commentator. Ticks all the boxes for qualifications.

    I wonder if Kurt will be the host again? I hope so.

    I assume you want Barbara Underhill as a judge.
