This is why I hate SoCal coverage of the NHL...

While watching the end of the Phoenix/LA game last night, on the SoCal Sports Show...

Mentioning trades, one guy brought up:

"And the Avs trade for Tommy Salo, looks like they don't like Aebischer and he's on the way out"

And another classic quote after showing the Blues/Islanders highlights:

"Demitra scores 1 minute into overtime beating Osgood and the Islanders" (this is while showing a close-up of the back of DiPietro on the ice after the goal)


AAAAHHH, makes me so mad how the newscasters are so ignorant!

And I love how they still can't say players names, but when an international player with a difficult name plays in the NBA, they figure those out pretty quick.

There is now a significant hard core of hockey fans in SoCal. None of them are Sports reporters. With all the Lakers and Dodgers hype that is spewed there's little room for our viralent minority.

By the way, you shoulda been here 25 years ago, there was absolutely no coverage and a much smaller fanbase.

Hey, at least they're better than the Avalanche's announcers on Fox. They seriously have no clue. Right up there with Nashville's announcers. At least in SoCal you have that Van Earl Wright guy... he used to be kind of funny. Like 10 years ago.

The only thing that makes him funny is his voice.

Fox hockey coverage really stinks - they were calling Justin Williams Jason Williams for the entire game. I can't remember his name but he does games with that overweight ex-goalie who loves the Rangers. You know the guy- talks about Messier like he is the greatest player in the league.
