The trouble is that the "stuff" he chooses to bombard viewers with are esoteric, irrelevant historical trivia that don't enhance or aid the viewer in following the action - in fact, those human interest anecdotes he makes a living on forcing into his PxP calls actually are at the expense of describing the actions. He's the most overrated announcer in the NHL IMO - and his nasal-sounding voice is like fingernails on the blackboard.

Now you're talking!

At least it isn't Forslund **shudders**.
Agreed on Olczyk and Reaugh assessments - Forslund is good when he's a neutral party rather than carrying a bias from his regular job with Carolina, which tainted the last game he called with the Sabres.

Per TBN blogs, they practiced together yesterday and this morning.

Finally, some sanity!

It's high time that Ruff put the pressure on Ehrhoff and start making him the focal point of the PP - that was a big reason for signing him and he needs to be put on the 1st unit. Let Roy or Pominville serve as the other point man feeding him passes instead of Gragnani or Myers.

Are those pairings official or just speculation? Those were what many of us forecast/hoped for in the preseason.
