I like Doc. He makes a boring game exciting if not humorous.

Can I go on TV and complain about the internets?

I'm just glad that all the games are being broadcasted. Complaining about each member of the broadcasting team = first world problems.

Had Center Ice for years, seen all the other broadcast teams. These guys are right near the bottom of the heap.

Thank God (or Philo T. Farnsworth) for the volume control on the remote; can't use the mute button because then I'm forced to see the gibberish they're spewing.
Oh, and they suck.

Hayward blows. Also didn't milbury recently punch out a kid in his sons game? ESPN fires Barnaby for getting a dui but NBC lets assaulting a minor go? Scary.
I'm with ya too on the Crosby and even Alex "how am I not suspended right now" ovechkin comparisons. Uhh first off guys neither are playing In this game! Second Crosby was pretty much a non factor in Pitts folding like a napkin in a Chinese restaurant.
Its absolutely assinine how they treat those two like gods. Ovechkin is as dirty a player as they come and Crosby dives like he wants to play in vancouver

Considering the market we (LA residents) are in, we have come to have higher expectations of announcing teams. I mean, Vin Scully, Chick Hearn and Bob Miller? ANYTHING else is going to be sophomoric by comparison.

He's a repeating offender. From where I sit, he hasn't stopped yet. I think they are having a few cocktails between periods as he continues to stumble on his words as the games go on. Hayward is just Hayward. Nobody even listens to him. He's played too many games without his helmet and cup. 5150 has his picture in the text

THIS. And the Kings are winning. I'll take mediocre announcers as long is the Kings are boss.

My question isn't about announcers or NBC. It is about the NHL network tv channel. Why aren't there more games broadcasted on that channel during the season like the NBA or MLB channels? Did they ever come out with a reason why you get more highlight shows on the NHL one?
