As has been noted, Edwards at least knows his stuff, the rest is aesthetics and that's in the ear of the beholder. Cusick/Sanderson were the gold standard for me growing up, but maybe they were like Mom's meatloaf (you can have meatloaf anywhere, but none are as good as your mother's). Though, Cusick was tough the last couple of years, seeing appiritions of Espisito on the ice, confusing Bourque for Orr, think Gil Santos calling hockey. When i played college hockey south of Buffalo I couldn't stand Jeanneret - the guy sounds like William S Burroughs hopped up on goofballs yelling through a coffee can - but he's an institution out there. At the end of the day, Edwards knows his stuff doesn't take himself too seriously, and i've gotta say i've gotten used to his quirks. I could use less composite stick rants, or "Gretzky's Office" nonsense, but Stewart Scott's been using that "Other side of the pillow" schtick for god knows how long as well, it's just entertainment.
