HockeyBuzz - Ranking the Thirty NHL Broadcasting Teams
Nickson and Evans would walk into the top 5 as well. Not afraid to admit that I prefer them at times.

Yeah, very evident when he says, "...and the score is 3-1 GOOD GUYS...", or "GOOD GUYS, coming up to bat." Just say Chicago!

Nick is just flat out great. He understands the radio format and how to make sure you know what is going on with the play when you can't see the action. Darryl is much improved as well.

He does but I absolutely love it. And his homerism doesn't bother me a bit.

Agree. When they demoted a true original in Mike Lange they set their own fate. The two they have now are horrible.

Not bad, but the guy was just dead wrong about The Flames switching from Loubardias to Kerr. ANYTHING is better than Mr High-Pitch Loubardias.

Any of you guys remember Curt Keilback? (Jets/Yotes up until a few years ago)
It was as if the guy would turn his back to the play on the ice, then turn back around and suddenly try and describe it all in the time it took him to turn around....
"Ohhhh my ga, well, here he is, but, it's no, now Doan, A DRRIIIIIVVVVEEEE!!, out in front wa, he wa, HE SCOREDDDDDD!!!!!!
Go to 1:32 of this video and listen to the play...

The Sharks announcers I think got ranked a little too high, and I can't understand why the Colorado clowns didn't make bottom three. That somebody besides the Penguins and Ducks guys suck worse than them is news to me.
In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the donuts.

Nobody wins with Hahn! But I can't stand all things Sharks so I am biased.
I really like the Nashville guys.
And yeah, really, I love Bob, but they shouldn't bring the mistake thing, he kept calling Mike Smith Mike Green, lol, but he should've called him Mike Mentalcase. :P And you can sense Fox's expression, but he's too polite to correct him.
And you don't have to hate on the team that's paying you to do call the game, but full blown homerism? Bah!
Having announcers bring up the team's flaws makes you feel like they are one of the guys. They want the team to win, but will roll their eyes when they are screwing up.
Our radio guys are good with that too!
During a Kings/Stars game last year during the Kings scoring drought.
Nick: King & Nolan have scored their first goal since being recalled. Those are two names that Kings fans aren't used to seeing on the scoreboard.
Daryl: Lately, Nick, Kings fans haven't been used to seeing a lot of Kings player's names on the scoreboard.
