A few days ago it was announced that Rick Ball would be leaving the Flames for the Blackhawks, and it could bring an opening for Jack Michaels on Hockey Night in Canada.

Ball called many Hockey Night in Canada games for the Calgary Flames, who will now need a voice themselves for national games. Harnarayan Singh has the experience, and could step in as the option there, leaving an opening for Jack Michaels the Oilers national broadcast. This is all speculation, but the logic makes sense.
Michaels has been the voice of the Oilers on radio since 2010, and on television since 2013. In that time, he's connected with Oilers fans by being one of the few announcers to really convey the passion and intensity of a game with his call. Of course Michaels backs the Oilers, but it's also great to hear a fan perspective on the broadcast that resonates with the people watching at home.
For years now, Oilers fans have petitioned unsuccessfully to get Michaels on the national broadcast and the playoff broadcasts. Maybe if there's an opening available and Sportsnet is aware of the massive demand for Michaels, they could easily make a popular decision.
Oilers fans would be ecstatic with this change, and hockey fans have to respect his energy and excitement on a call. Hopefully Michaels is able to grab the national slot for next year, and maybe even call Oilers playoffs games on television. It'd be pulsating hockey!
