There are good and bad ones spread across the province. Considering they're volunteers, I tend to give them some leeway on pronunciations and the like. Some of them are downright hilarious though!

The Guelph announcers are probably the best I've seen for impartiality. I agree Tom, the London guys are a little over the top. If you were away from the TV and just listened to the game, you'd have a difficult time trying to find out what other team is on the ice. Kitchener used to have an ex-ref who brought an interesting viewpoint, but they have their own overused phrases too. Turple never makes a save; he robs someone.

After talking with a few American team fans, I guess we should just consider ourselves lucky that we get to see games, no matter who is broadcasting them!
