Brunet is decent. What a relief, at least he knows what he's talking about when analyzing plays.

Brunet is fine. I like the fact that he doesn't care at all about baseball and F-1, so Pierre doesn't talk about it for a few minutes and missing plays and goals. I like the fact that Pierre isn't sucking up to him. It's like if Pierre Houde respected Yvon too much and that everything Yvon said was right. We don't feel that with Benoit and it's refreshing. Brunet doesn't have to be always right and Pierre can have a different opinion.

I don't feel the chemistry that we saw between Pierre and Yvon but I don't care. I couldn't stand these two clowns together anymore. Pierre is a good commentator when he sticks to the game. that's what has happened so far this year and I've been pleased.

What I hate is during the intermissions. Bergeron and Gagnon are awful.

I didn't have the chance to listen to a game on RDS yet, but I know he could teach us a lot of stuff. The thing is, the vast majority of listeners think they know their hockey and would feel that Brunet is "bragging" about his knowledge. In Québec, you can't show that you know more about something, it's perceived as arrogance.

When the news come out (about him becoming the new colour guy) Brunet made an interview on CKAC. He said "for example, I could explain why we use this kind of schema on the powerplay (something Pednault couldn't do) but I'm not here to teach, fans know their etc,...
I remember something similar with Demers, where he was talking about how he would bring the point guy higher for x reason, then excusing himself for been to technical

I've always thought that American based broadcast teams describe or analyze the game from a more technical standpoint. When I used to look for games on the transistor dial, yeah I really did that as a kid, the US broadcast teams would actually break down theplay where the Canadian ones were limited to, 'thye're really skating tonight'.

That's because Pierre is talking 90-95% of the time...

When Yvon was there, it was more like 60/40 (60% for Pierre and 40% for Yvon)

Ben is a Teddy Bear. As such he won't bother anyone. He won't ever be annoying like Pednault. So he will be fine. But for all his faults, Pednault brought an energetic "Big Time" feel that will never be there with Brunet. When you turned on RDS during a hockey game with Houde and Yvon you knew you were listening/watching two professionals(even if the comments sucked).

That's why him sitting next to Demers doesn't work in my opinion. He's so above and beyond him. I swear if this team continue during the season, sooner or later Joel is gonna laugh at Demers to his face or call him a fool. It is bonded to happen.

Calling a coach who has won a couple of Stanley cups a fool would be pretty stupid. Demers is the rah-rah to Bouchard's technical analysis, they make a good team, the yin and the yang, the hot and the cold, the black and the white, the McPhee and the goat. Although I must admit I don't pay much attention to anouncers in general, and to between-period blah-blah.

Demers was sometime awkward with Brunet and it lead to Brunet laughing to his face a few times last season. Now it's been what three games Joel-Jacques together and there's already been a few strange moments. The problem is that they're both on different wave lengths completly. At least with Brunet he was an OLD player, he played under Jacques and Brunet is not the most cerebral guy. So they could mix it up. Even then they screwed up. With Bouchard, it's like he's trying to show us something interesting and instead of his team partner complimenting what he just said and enhancing it, Jacques stars to talk about something entirely or tries to add to what Joel has mentioned but it doesn't make any sens. After a few of these during the season JL will throw his hands in the air and yell "I give up!" sooner than we think.

Why can't RDS hire credible describers from top to bottom?

I always thought that intermissions were for those that never mastered the intricacies of the remote, like my Dad. I usually head downstiairs, throw a log on the fire, annoy my family so that they never comment when I disappear to watch the game.

dubé ... OMG ...

his analysis is good from time to time, but when he tries to make that second sentence, you see that he feels he needs to say something... but he just don't know what to say.... and says things like ; ''faudrait pas être surpris de voir s.kos s'améliorer cette année... '' ... he is a bit overated, its annoying me...lol.

McGuire is really the guy that makes it fun when you listen to CKAC ....

Let Joel Bouchard get 1-2 years of experience doing between-the-periods commentaries like that, and he would be a great color commentator. I'm really impressed by him, he almost overshadows Demers. He's lively yet moderate, and he has a lot of style.

I agree! Although, when I heard the news that Brunet would replace Pedneault, my first thought was " what a relief, no more Pedneault" but I had really big dopubt about Brunet, after a few games, at least he doesn't like to hear himself talk (unlike Pedneault) and his commentary are useful, although, his french could be way better, I think he will progress well during this season...

Joel Bouchard would be awesome though

Well I wish we had somebody to explain to the viewers what it means,the techical things, etc.. Dubé is always interesting that way. Yet for whatever reasons he's not as good doing the color on radio than he is in other media. Dubé would be great showing us plays between periods a la Kelly Hrudey.

I can't believe RDS couldn't find anybody better than Benoit Brunet for this job in the entire province. I dare say that half of the posters on this board could probably do his job better than him. Give him time, he'll grow into it, blah blah blah? I say that's crap, I didn't like him doing the Sens' broadcasts and I don't think he's gotten much better since. This is the Montreal Canadiens' 100th season and they deserve someone with experience who doesn't suck. I never thought I'd say this, but I miss Yvon. I guess I loved to hate him, he was fun to argue with (and I actually like him on the radio now). Brunet just puts me to sleep. I'd give anything for a good 'permutation des défenseurs' or a 'centre de gravité très bas' right now.

Most posters on this board couldn't find their way out of a paper bag, let alone doing Brunet's job better than him.
