I actually found myself disagreeing with him, whenever he says "player x" or "this line" is having a great game.

Now maybe i should give him the benefit of the doubt, as it may look quite different live and in the booth, than what we see on TV coverage - but when a player hasn't done a thing for 2 periods and then gets one shot on goal, that's not a "great game", in my opinion.

Seems to jump on the bandwagon really quickly when a player doesn't deserve it, imo.

Though i'll take that over Bob Cole in the 80's when he would tell us when Wayne Gretzky was getting ready to come back onto the ice, and then when he was leaving the ice, virtually every shift. It's okay Bob, we'll see him on the ice when he gets there.
