I love Errey. The man has absolutely no filter between his brain and his mouth and I find it hilarious. As others have said, he's far less homer-ish than he gets accused of being as well. He's never hesitated to say that the Pens got a bad call in their favor or that he thinks a Pens goal will likely be waived off, and more often than not he's right.

I've noticed that even Steigerwald is a little less uberhomer than he used to be too. I can't remember who he was being critical of last night but he did say something to the effect of a player not playing especially well and a few broadcasts ago he was critiquing Beau Bennett as well. Nothing too excessive but way outside of his usual blinders to any mistakes the Pens might make.
Most teams home announcers want their team to win. I think ours are considered huge homers is because they are excited all the time even if they don't actually root for our team any more than the average home announcer does.
