I think a lot of people judge based on a few youtube clips. At one point during yesterday's game, I was listening carefully and he called out the name of every player who had the puck on both teams for about 4 minutes straight.

When I watch a lot of other broadcasts it's like.

"phil kessel dumps it in ... the defenseman picks it up ... Bozak is in on the forecheck ... the defenseman moves it up and they're coming up the wing... he's watched by Ponikarovski ... the shot .... and THE MONSTER with the save... he clears it away to Kaberle."

Edwards calls both teams and I really, really like that.


But I would advise anyone to listen to a Habs game on the radio in french some time. Even if you don't understand a word the guy is saying, it's amazing. Every play feels like it's the last minute of the Stanley Cup. The play-by-play guy is gasping for air the whole time. He's easily the best in the business IMO.
