John Bartlett the new Habs english play by play guy on 990
 
http://www.hockeyinsideout.com/news/...bs-on-team-990

Surprised I didn't see this earlier. He's a long time Toronto Marlies analyst but a Habs fan at heart. Glad to see they actually got a guy with a pedigree and experience.

For me the standard is Martin McGuire at CKAC...

Damn that dude is fast... and he provides so much detail too. :amazed:

Meh, that playbyplay guy for the dogs is pretty good, you know.

Habsterix* 08-25-2011 08:24 AM

I'm disappointed that @dogsplaybyplay didn't get the job...

Do people still listen to the radio, other than driving in their car?

I think he's better suited for the radio. You don't need AS much details as to what is happening on TV, you can see it, and I'm not sure he could stop himself from talking... It's on the analyst side that RDS is so weak. Hopefully it's better this year.

I really think McGuire's amazing at what he does now though.

Hoping For Peter Loubardias
 
I was hoping Peter would get the job, a great play by play guy recently let go by the Calgary Flames.

A real puck head, loves the game, I used to see him hanging around at the Saskatoon Blades games all the time in high school.

Graduate of my old school..GO SOULS! :nod:

Yea, I am a little biased, but loved to hear his game analysis as well...solid guy all around.

Best of luck John B.

neofury* 08-25-2011 12:17 PM

Best of luck to John B, here's to hoping the Bulldogs guy gets his due too.

I'm selfishly happy Derek Wills will stay with the dogs a little longer, as I really love the job he's doing there... I feel a bit sorry for him though. I think his time will definitely come soon though.

I don't feel sorry for him. Maybe he needs the pay day but he's doing something many people would love to be able to do. Of course first you'd have to be good at it :laugh: But it seems like an awesome job.

I also feel sorry for him. Anyone with some ambition wants to move to the next level and for Derek, I know that he does have those ambitions. It's a bit of a set back for him but he's good at it and it's only a matter of time before he gets the call.

Good stuff! Mostly unless your in the airline industry, you almost never get new Anglos to Montreal. Nice to see the tides might be turning & were getting one from Toronto...For A Change!!!!

Wish him Luck, by his CV, I'm sure he'll do just fine.

Didn't Wills do some sabres games already? RJ cant have many years left, so I think that would be a great spot for him.

I love his work though, so from a selfish point of view, it would have been great to have him on team 990

Here's a small sample of bartlett's work.... at least I'm fairly certain its him, lol


Player 61 08-26-2011 09:42 PM

To be fair... Team990 which basically gave the Habs Hell after MR(Nuff Said)(Cake Manager) turned over ever stone searching for a GM.... I would like to think they got the best guy, who cares where anyone is from as long as they are the best & I heard they interviewed a ton of guys.

He'll be great & has the history, maybe he'll grab hearts like Jack did? Who knows.

PS... To the Maritimer, who boldly asked if anyone listens to Hockey on Radio anymore... Metro City of 4 Million Plus area... with 1 Million Anglo listeners & Canada's largest call Centre City. Add the Airport Eve shift & drivers.... Many listen on the Radio...It's a MAJOR Deal.

PS I can tell you all the radios at the Airport are on the English station...

I've heard that they may retain services of Sergio Momesso... NDG!

I think he knows how to talk like an Anglo Montreal er.

PS, I like that the Anglo's don't think in the BOX always. Tennessee-Toronto - Montreal - Halifax....Same. Equal in North America!

Player 61 08-27-2011 11:26 AM

Chris Nilan has been through some hard hard times.

At least here in Montreal he will get a lot of love and respect as he walks around the city.

It will do him some good. :)

No Doubt, he isn't perfect, but he seems to care...He's Welcome on the Island any time....Always!

Player 61 08-27-2011 02:29 PM

As Men were all Arse...But Chris dropped his gloves wearing the CH. He's aloud! Plain & Simple!
