I love Mickey but have you ever seen him dissect a play? Or offer insight into where the puck should have gone in this instance, under this system?
No. You havent. Because Mick played in an era of hockey that barely had systems. The "systems" of his era are basic Hockey 101 these days so there is no insight to offer.
With that said, he has a keen eye for recognizing talent on the offensive end. He can accurately say this-or-that guy anticipated such-and-such very well and that shows signs of knowing the game (the old "...doesnt need a road map out there" line).
I like him, he will retire when he wants to. But to say there arent better out there is nostalgia speaking. Rightfully so, but admit the bias is all.
Ken Daniels, a few people mentioned something is awkward about him.
Its his eyes. They are entirely too close together. He looks like he was stretched at the temples and he knows it, which is why, if you notice, he is always trying to "profile" his face on camera as often as possible. Even resorting to a sort of very deep bow as a gesture of inflection.
But I like him as a PxP guy because he rarely mixes the names and calls a fast game. He is constantly interrupted by Mickey which throw his flow off, but hey, thats their version of chemistry.
