Battle of the Blades : Preview

25 09 2010
 Sunday night TV is getting a little more interesting this week. CBC’s sleeper hit of last year Battle of the Blades enters a new season… but how will it far without the star power of Tie Domi? It goes one better.
Now that the formula is proven, and ex-NHLers see the DWTS-like career rebirth the show offers…the stars lined up!
Here’s the new cast of Battle of the Blades: Season 2:
The Hockey players:  

  • Patrice Brisebois (we know who the Montrealers are voting for)
  • Valeri Bure (married to Full House chic…and has a pretty famous brother)
  • Russ Courtnall (big guy…his lack of finesse will be intriguing)
  • Kelly Chase (another tough-guy…)
  • Theo Fleury (fresh off the book promotion)
  • Georges Laraque (resident tough guy and Domi nemesis)
  • P.J. Stock (newbie ‘journalist’ for HNIC)
  • Todd Warriner (a Leaf-fan favourite)

A good crop of notables. And their partners are nothing to sneeze at either… here are the women given the task to make their partners into Plushenkos:

  • Isabelle Brasseur
  • Jamie Sale (sans hubby…tear!)
  • Kyoko Ina
  • Ekatareena Gordeeva
  • Violetta Afansieva
  • Shaye-Lyn Bourne
  • Christina Hough-Sweeney
  • Anabelle Langois

The show starts tomorrow, Sunday September 26th on the CBC network.
