So what now? They take any bum and make them an analyst? And what about poor Brunet and his puppy face, he's signed for 3 years, no?

We realy need to find a way to make Dubé synchro.

I am confident that m,any of you might change opinion when you see him in a different role then bum at 110%

it is a guy that always played a role, which he was doing fairly good.

I would give him a chance before bashing him

I remember him from before when he played this "role" as you call it on RDS or SRC (forget which one) and he sucked.

explain to me how he's so horrible. I mean a valid fact, not a sarcastic response like I see most of the times on these post. Like it or not, he knows his hockey, you may not always agree with him but he knows what he's talking about most of the time.

Tabarnac.

He sucked doing it on CKAC when covering the Habs with Pierre Rinfret. Bergeron doesn't deserve a job like this, he deserves a beating. His hockey knowledge is stuck in the 80's, he' always whining about more Québec-born players, he sucks.

So RDS lost a HHOFer in Pedneault and replaced him with Michel Bergeron. I'm not even the biggest Pedneault fan but that is ridiculous.

A clown for a clown... From RDS's point of view, I fail to understand the switch. Pedneault was extremely negative towards many players and the team at times. Bergeron will only be worse in that aspect.

I guess they took Bergeron, because Tremblay was busy with the Wild

holy christ you guys are sad.

He will be doing some analyst work for a professional sports network. He was doing a tabloid show, this was his mandate, to bother people, get under people's nerves.

Like it or not, Bergeron has more hockey knowledge and experience than Pedneault.

I remember everyone bashing him because of his knowledge of players and the game, and now that he is gone, its like they crucified Jesus.

If you dont like it, dont watch. Pretty simple.

Would have been nice to have Dany Dubé to replace Pedneault...

Bergeron is a fine analyst with good hockey knowledge.


His problem is that he can't stop playing the role of "bad guy" or "agressive bad boy" on tv. He goes on rants against certain players, and the way he does it is unprofessional. He dislikes Markov, for example, for reasons foreign to most.. and because of that, he picks on him specifically.

He's a big Kovalev fan and a big Koivu basher..




This type of personal feelings about players should not be part of the schtick of an analyst on tv. It was probably the biggest thing I disliked about Pedneault..


What is good about Houde is he's neutral. Same for McGuire and Dubé.. same for that Mathias Brunet.. same for Bob McKenzie.. or Miller..

Many dislike that Pierre McGuire has these man-crushes and hate-ons.


All we're asking from our tv hockey people is to be professional, unbiased and have a minimum of competence.


Is that too much to ask?

Did you ever listen to him when he was color commentator on CKAC in the 90's?

I have to say I would have happily kept Pedneault on board as the color guy and just kept the status quo at this point since we now know the alternative.
