That being said, I do wish there was a button that enabled you to mute announcers but still hear the sounds on ice and in the arena.
NHL 2K8 had a great option where you could change the announcers to a dynamic orchestral score that changed depending on the situation in the game (triumphant music with a big lead, tense music when down 1 late in the game in the 3rd, etc).

It was really well executed and way, way better than listening to the same recorded lines over and over again from announcers I don't even particularly like live. A friend and I try to recreate it sometimes in NHL12 when we play our season with movie soundtracks, but it's not quite the same.
