Scully, Murphy, and Kiner? You do realize that once they passed the age of 60 or so, they primarily stuck to announcing baseball. (And in Scully's case, maybe some golf and tennis as well.) Hockey pbp is, shall we say, a bit more faster and demanding than announcing those other sports.

I love Sam too. But he has those days when he just miscalls the action or mis-IDs players (even the Ranger guys!) left and right. His performance has definitely slipped. And if the slide continues, then this will eventually become an issue that MSG Network can't ignore.
