Just want to add my two cents here and say how much I appreciate Sam and how much a part of my life he has been for three decades. In the dog days of summer I find myself yearning to hear his voice.

I remember Jim Gordon and Bill Chadwick with fondness and also Marv Albert from his radio days in the early 60s when the Rangers were beginning to expand their brand and hockey was starting to boom in NY. In those days only the last 10 minutes of the 1st and 2nd periods plus all of the third were broadcast.

Also other TV announcers from the 60s and early 70s: Win Elliot, Tim Ryan (I think) and a guy named Norm Jarry who they brought in from Quebec for a few months when one of their announcers got sick. I think Jarry became mayor of a town in Quebec later.

But Sam is the best. I can't think of the Rangers without hearing his voice in my head.
