And then he ends up in these strange conversations with Fox. How hard is it to describe the game and especially the opposing teams players and action? Since I don't usually know the opponent's numbers and cant read their jerseys I would like to know who is doing what. And god forbid I have to look away to cook or do something else while the game is on--its almost impossible to follow the action by listening.

    At one point a few games ago Fox actually told him play had started in order to get him back on track. Fox did so jokingly because Faust was busting his balls, but it still rang true.

    Its true Bob made lots of mistakes toward the end, but then since he actually described what was going on he had lots of opportunities to make those mistakes.

    I wish I could sync the radio feed to the video....problem would be solved.
    Agree on both points, mis-identifying is just a mistake. I try to not get on Faust for that. The problem is, Faust isn't a hockey guy or hockey fan- this is what comes across to me.

    I'm able to sync the radio if the video is ahead. You might be able to do this if you tune into the radio feed on the NHL app (usually a minute or 2 behind) and pause your video feed while the radio catches up....

    ....Sometimes I want to HEAR a Kings game too, not just watch one on tv

    I feel like this guy doesn’t have one ounce of the passion for the game that Bob had or even Jim has. Just seems to go through the motions and nothing about his delivery feels natural. We are at the halfway point of the season and the chemistry or lack there of is exactly the same as it was for their first broadcast of the season. I agree with the person that said they might have been better off bringing in a new color person too, listening to Alex and Jim is tough to do for me.

    I wish Nickson took the job from the outset.

    It happened to me again last week when I was watching the game that aired on NBCsports (or whatever it's called now), I forgot it was a national game because who ever the PBP announcer was sounded to me the same as Faust, hence I thought it was him.

    The Kings have lost 3 straight. Calgary is white hot. The Sharks are talented and Anaheim is finally healthy. Once the Kings are desperately clinging to a playoff spot, we'll move on to serious discussions.
