A lot of St Louis fans like to bash Kelly, but he's very good at his job. He was deserving of the Emmy he won a couple years ago. For an experiment, watch him and mark down how many times he correctly/incorrectly identifies the player making the play on the OPPOSING team. Then watch pretty much any other NHL game and see the difference. If you watch, there are lots of guys that just say, "A Blues player retrieves the puck." Kelly is well prepared and does a fantastic job of calling the play in real time. Its not easy.

He has a mechanical delivery at times, but if you look past that he's actually pretty impressive at the amount of effort he puts into his craft.

Pang is also one of the top in the league at color commentary. They make a great team, too, since Pang helps to loosen up Kelly quite a bit.
