I agree that Jack Edwards is not fun to listen to on a broadcast...very homerish...actually whiny. Must be the Tom Heinsohn influence up in Boston.

He does, however, give pretty good blow by blow descriptions of hockey fights!

I do like Rick Jeanneret, however. His folksy sayings take some getting used to (not unlike Mike Lange in Pittsburgh, who is now on radio), but Rick is one announcer who gets just as excited when the Sabres are scored against as when they Sabres score a goal.

Rick Peckham is very good on Lightning telecasts....he was the old Hartford Whalers announce when they were in the NHL.

Some other good play by play guys around the league...Randy Hahn in San Jose, Bob Miller in LA, Dean Brown in Ottawa, Pat Foley in Chicago, John Kelly in St Louis, Ralph Strangis in Dallas, and John Shorthouse in Vancouver.

The best, however, is Jim Hughson of CBC Hockey Night in Canada. Nobody else is close.
