I think Strombo is a terrible, terrible choice. It is very much a corporate focus group kind of pick. He appeals to a very broad, especially female, audience.
Stombo is a HUGE hockey fan (esp. Habs) and brings some some name recognition with him. I'm sure he was high on the list to begin with.
As far as Sportsnet's coverage goes, Marek has been working with a pretty limited budget this far. With that budget about the skyrocket, I'd expect production value to go way up.
