glad ray is getting an opportunity for a larger role. he still needs some polish but he improves every year and understands the game.

duff - awesome.
They are not--and shouldn't--going to push him out. When RJ is ready to hang it up, he will. Yes, he is past his PxP prime. But the vast majority of the fans I would guess still absolutely love him.

Plus he isn't going out on top. That would be finally calling a Cup win. As far as I'm concerned, he's earned the right to keep calling games until the team on the ice finally gives him that moment. And as a fan, I want to hear that moment, called by that man.
