Millen isn't new. He's okay. Used to like him, now he's okay.

Pedneault's too far out of his element. I feel for him.

I hate Pednault speaking English. I wish it could improve in like a week or so, but it's impossible.

I like the guy, just not the speed of his speaking (very slow).

Pednault still seems a little bit biased toward the habs but that's to be expected after all these years on RDS. His accent however is terrible and while I don't really care, some people might.

I hate Yvon's french accent, but it's not his fault I guess.

He still has mini "ooohhh" orgasms every now and then

Let's just say I switched back to RDS rather quickly.

Pretty much what I thought.

Seemed a wee bit nervous before the game, almost slipping an "évidemment" in his comments.

Wouldn't be shocked to learn he's been phased out in a couple weeks.

Everytime Pednault says something, Millen doesn't respond ****, like he didn't understand what Pednault just said... SAD.

Pednault doesn't sound too good but I guess he'll get better with time. Now why did the CBC hired him? They probably wanted someone who came from Quebec (lots of quebecers listen to CBC)...We have competent people here so why not. Only thing is he has to get better in english.

They should've gotten Francois Gagnon, but he's taken now...

Two color commentators are too much for hockey. Baseball and football are slow enough games that two people can make opinions between pitches or plays.

There just isn't enough down time for that in hockey. First time I've heard Yvon speak english. I agree that he will soon be phased out.

Seriously though, his english is not up to par to be on CBC. Demers, who has been on Off The Record many times, speaks much better english.

Pednault is literally useless and doesn't add anything to the show. He mumbles a sentence once in a while but that's all.

Demers is an anglophone. This is why he's so bad in French btw... :p

PEdneault is embarassing, but Cole is actually pretty good. He seems to have studied the habs this year.

Now that he's #3 and not the Leaf man, he might sound respectable this year. But for those ripping CBC for not showing the Habs nationwide, get real. It was against Phoenix. In almost all cases, a Leaf game gets taken over that but unjustifiably so. This time, I think CBC had it right since Crosby=Golden Boy therefore his games get the focus over most other meetings Canadian teams have. If Toronto was visiting Atlanta however, there'd be an actual good argument to be made.
