I couldn't disagree more. Mickey has a passion for the game, he has played for the Wings, and he's about as unbiased a color commentator as I've seen/heard. The only thing he might be biased or gripe about is the penalties the refs call these days, and even then he gripes on those calls for both teams on the ice. He likes the rough stuff, and he gives credit where credit is due (when it comes to other team's talent and/or plays). He has tremendous knowledge and insight into the game!
I've had Center Ice or Game Center for many years now, and I cringe at some of the idiotic homers that call games for other teams. The way they call games sometimes is just downright embarrassing and a pain to listen to.
I hope Mickey sticks around for a very long time!
