I grew up listening to Ken Nicolson. Keilback was brought in as his colour guy when the Jets moved into the NHL and then Nicolson's poor health necessitated that they switch roles, which I believe happened when they moved to CKY from CJOB. Keilback had a good voice but little of Nicolson's personality, which wasn't always a bad thing. He did a good job and was much better than most of the guys today. Play-by-play is an art that is tough to master. It's much easier to chatter during the play, so that's what they often seem to do now.

With announcers, everything tends to be measured from the one you grew up with. Sort of like no baseball announcer sounds right unless it's Dave Van Horne and every baseball colour commentator seems like someone doing Duke Snider's job badly.
