one of the best, i.e. worst parts is when Lavoie interviews a player in English between periods, basically asking very pointed questions and then translates it in a way that makes google translate seem perfect and as if the player himself brought up the issues and game plan. He could at least say something along the lines of, "je lui ai demandé...", "et il a répondu/répliqué" (I asked him..., and he replied...). Then again, not like those interviews are groundbreaking.

One thing I will give them credit for is that they aren't huge homers. In fact, usually tending to the opposite, particularly on L'antichambre. (I do actually really love Pierre Houde's commentary though.)

The most annoying thing is their hard on for any Francophones on the other team. Man, I like our homeboys too, but not when they play for the pens, bruins or flyers!
