You don't have to like either of them, but you have to admit that's pretty objective.

Chico can be just as ebullient about the opposing team, he was slobbering all over the Penguins all game long.
As an addendum to my earlier comment, I do have to say that we're lucky in the NY area to have three groups of commentators who are pretty good at calling a spade a spade. While Resch's Brodeur-fixation drives me nuts, I have to admit that he and Emrick are good at maintaining neutrality, as are Sam and Joe and the Islanders duo (who's names I forget and am too lazy to look up right now).
