I was kinda hoping in addition to the brief (too brief? for a guy who did like 40 years with the Kings?) memorial, they'd have Courtney's voice as the pump-up welcome greeting before the kings hit the ice. At least for the first game, or just a period.
God, this new guy either just doesn't cut it...or he's just not the voice i'm used to hearing. Another thing: Courtney had a way of 'capturing the moment' and the momentum. When the Kings scored the first goal, I was kinda waiting for the announcement (that never came) in a pumped-up voice announcing the goal. The new guy didn't make the announcement, and then hawks got the goal right back.
Yeah, you don't know the value of something or someone until they're gone
