I don't know about you, but Doc Emerick's (Devils) voice is annoying as hell. Sounds like a little old man hanging on to a stop sign post during a hurricane.

Gotta go with Doc and Chico (if I can't go with my own Strangis and Reaugh).

For national (when Doc isn't involved), I definitely like Chris Cuthbert.

While I loved his "Lange-isms", I didn't really much care for Lange's play-by-play.

So last night I'm sitting in bed, just about ready to turn off the TV, watching NHL channel, when Devils highlights come on.

Mike Emrick is hollering, as is his wont, about Brodeur, who did make a couple of pretty good saves. Then he yells about Brodeur's fantastic, marvelous, super duper, best save in the history of the NHL.

I'm watching, thinking to myself "Did Brodeur even TOUCH that?". So I backed it up a few times. Brodeur missed the puck by a good 18 inches. His very best friend, the goalpost, made the save for him!

Obviously I didn't see the broadcast, so maybe when they had a chance to look at the replay, they noticed that brodeur didn't make the play.. I don't know.. it just bugged me in the highlight hearing Emerick SWOON over Brodeur's play.

Sad when the Flyers best has passed away. After Hart, it's been very bad.

To each his own but I can't stand Beninati..... he is the most annoying broadcaster! Also I don't quite get the excitement for the guys doing the Pittsburgh games. My wife who is not a hockey fan walked past the TV the other night when I had a Pen's game on and her comment was that they sounded boring!


Agreed - the current Pens TV guys are horrible. Bob Errey can't go one period without referring to the glory years of the early 90's. Gotta try to catch the radio broadcast since that is where they moved Mike Lange

That was Don.

I've been a Bruins fan forever (talk about pain)...and still smart at Bruins/Flyers Cup Series. Clarke hooked/tripped Orr and I think Kate Smith blocked the ref's view :)

grrr.

Back to the topic...I used to like Bill Chadwick's interviews with the guy from the Maple Leafs...King Clancy? Talk about old time hockey guys.

Actually, the NBC crew wasn't that bad Ted Lindsay (stitch face) and the others were mildly entertaining. Peter Puck wasn't though.

Since I started the thread, I'll say there have been some great posts here. I'm surprised, though, that no one has mentioned Ken Daniels of the Wings. I purposely started the thread as one where you shouldn't vote for your own guys, but I'm a little surprised at the lack of love for Ken and Mickey. Even John Buccigross at ESPN called them the best announcing team in the NHL on his blog recently.

Having said that, you guys have made some other great choices. I miss Ken Wilson of the Blues. Their current guy, John Kelly, used to do the Avs, right? Maybe that's why I don't care for him.:D

Jim Hughson and Chris Cuthbert are both very good.

The "original" Dan Kelly was, in my opinion, the best play-by-play voice ever. His call on Bobby Orr's Stanley Cup winning goal is the stuff of legend.

Ken and Mickey are far and away my favorites. As a die-hard Red Wing fan I feel very lucky that I get to listen to them so much.

I really like Ken and Mickey, too. If I'm watching the Wings and the announcers for the HD feed are the other team's, I'll watch in SD to have Ken and Mickey as the announcers.

Lately, DirecTv has been having both feeds from a number of games which is great although they don't always have two HD feeds. It is better when they have both in HD so I can choose the announcers I want to hear.

(Drew Remenda is also very good particularly at explaining rules, etc., but since I'm in CA I won't mention him :) ).

Pang for Phoenix is good also.

Yes I like Ken and Mickey as well I really don't think that they are homers as some of the others are.
They never seem to scream like some of the others.
Mickey does pan the refs quite a lot I am surprised that the NHL does not try a shut him up about the refs.

That's probably because he is usually correct.

Gary Thorne and Bill Clement!

I've come across Thorne announcing college football and major league baseball games.
