I know many around here hate him to extremmes, but P.Gauthier, if you actually listen to him and don't mind some of the histrionics, is one of the better sport analysts in any of the pro NA leagues...

Mike Johnson isn't yet smooth/polished infront of the camera, but I've liked his work thus far.

One of the SI writers, can't remember his name, seems to have quite solid takes/perspectives pretty consistently.


No one is perfect, to be sure, and Bob Mac isn't terrible... I just don't agree with a lot of the praise/recognition. His best attribute is that he doesn't present many strong/controversial opinions, but I see that more as a strategic attempt to come accross as the reasoned one (and keep his sources reliable/on board/happy) than actually expressing his opinions (he's had a few articles, usually non-nhl related, that show he does have strong opinions in him... but with his NHL stuff he seems to always come out with bland takes that don't even attempt to dig beneath the superficial or obvious).

strikes me as to much "reporter" and not enough "analyst/commentator". and ironically, his delivery on camera, as a "reporter" is pretty average...
