Redmond is fine. I noticed he has been slipping as far as memory goes, and jumping to conclusions, but he is exactly what a color commentator should be. He's a natural talker. Most color guys are awkward, try too hard to be funny, and use way too many mixed metaphors.
Redmon, for all his mistakes, sounds natural and comfortable, and it sounds exactly like watching the game with a buddy. Plus, he never sounds like he's reciting stats, he gets to the core of the matter with his old time stories and wisdom, and he DOES have a tremendous amount of hockey knowledge that he passes down.
Daniels is good as well, but he does come off as a used car salesman. He's definitely going to go national soon. He's excitable, but not nearly as excitable as the wannabe pro wrestling play by play guys.
How did Murph and Keating get their jobs? Awkward delivery, bumbling metaphors, it's embarrassing. I cringe for the day Murph takes over or FSD gets a pro-wrestling wannabe to do play by play.
