I believe it's mostly an ego question. If he had a hockey expert (Kekäläinen for instance) by his side, that expert would have to correct his ridicilous interpretations of the game all the time. For instance, when Kovalchuk's cross-check was shown on replay yesterday, this is what Mertaranta saw:
"LOOK AT THAT. KOVALCHUK SLASHES HIETANEN STRAIGHT TO THE HEAD."
