- In terms of pure play by play, Hughson is just so much better than Emrick. I like Doc for non-Ranger games because he can make any game entertaining. His style is a bit over-the-top and obnoxious at times though. Literally gives me heart attacks when he does Ranger games. Hughson, on the other hand, is just your classic play by play guy. Rarely makes mistakes. Knows the game. Steady. Solid.
- CBC's hockey analysis is just ten times deeper than NBC's. After watching CBC break down a game, going back and watching NBC makes me feel like I'm watching "hockey for dummies".
- Don Cherry is entertaining during intermissions.
- NBC probably gets the edge in production value (sound, graphics, etc). You can tell they put more money into their production. Their only real advantage, in my opinion.
Give me CBC any day of the week.
You pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. I cant stand Cherry but on the other hand, I really dislike just about anyone NBC throws on the broadcast team.
