I know I will be in the minority, but he should have been the PBP from the start on TV instead of Dan Kelly on FSOhio. He has the passion and the hockey knowledge to be a great guy to call the game. He scrapes the fine line between "homer" and "unbiased announcer." I hope the best for him. He has a great enthusiasm and love for the game.
That being said, he was terrible on radio. Hockey is very difficult to call on radio, and he was one of the worst in the NHL doing it. I don't know if there were ever politics involved, but I have mixed emotions about him leaving. He has a great voice for the game, but brain-dead without the visual aspect. Until I see George Matthews replace Jeff Rimer - good riddance.
