He's put down Crosby a number of times and other Canadian players and pumped OV a few times.
He has good things to say about Sundin and Salming.
The mans not perfect and does say stupid things. I put a lot of it down to his age and the entertainment factor.
Controversy sells, and he's a showman.
As for not pronouncing names properly, he's not the only one that screws that up. I don't think he does it intentionally, he really (like a lot of people) has a hard time with some peoples names.
