Get Benot Brunet off the air

The man is awful as a color analyst.

I actually miss Pedenault.

Who cares? This is an English language board. Most people don't understand french.

My niece thinks I look like Benny, and that's good enough for me.

I look like Pierre Houde personally, and I wonder how he deals with him day in day out.

Agreed, get that guy off air. At least let Pierre Houde comment the game alone.

So true. As far as I'm concerned Benoit got his shot and is messing it up with his stupid comments. His understanding of hockey seems to be limited to a 4th line role.

No, if any changes are needed, they need Brian Peppers to hang out in the locker room and start hugging the players playing poorly....and have him in the commentators booth during games.

He was talking about your mom and stuff, it was really weird.

Then something about lighting a dog on fire.

Yeah real funny...

I suppose 80% of the board are currently whining and cutting their wrist after last night game.

Actually they've started assembling at Brunet's place, with torches, hot tar and feathers.

Brunet is slowly but surely beginning to annoy me. I thought he was bland but "unproblematic" at first but he keeps coming up with the same annoying things over and over. At least Ped had life. They should have kept Yvon there but add Joel Bouchard as third man.

Damn... the fan base will spare noone in their search for retribution after last night's game! Burn 'em all!!!!

Seriously though, I think Brunet is miles ahead of that biased dope Pednault already. He still has lots of experience to gain, but at least he knows hockey and actually makes balanced comments. I certainly don't miss Pednault creaming his pants and saying "quel jeu de Boullion" each time Boullion ices the puck, or bashing Ryder for fanning on an open net and going on and on about it when it was actually Latendresse.

Though whoever said Bouchard mght be a better option, I concur. He's bringing so much credibility to RDS. Great addition to the telecast that was.

On the first goal he didnt even mention the name of Dandenault once....Kept saying it was Komisarek's fault.

This was predictable, Brunet wasn't ever really that good on the broadcast. Of course I'm in the minority who liked Pednault.

Give Benny more time, he's still learning the ropes.

You mean bring back Mr.Negative, they don't do this right blah blah blah! I suppose he knows hockey from a 1st line perspective? He understands hockey from the donut perspective, sitting on his couch and eating donuts. Let's start a bring back Pedneault petition.

I've got no problem with Brunet overall, I like the lower volume approach, less dramatic pronouncements but he's got aways to go . I did notice that after they saw the replay and at best, the turnover was a collaborative effort, they were conpicuous in not mentionning it.

Last night Brunet was trying 20 times to finish his word (can't remember which one) and Pierre Houde instead of helping him finish completely changed the subject Brunet was trying to start. I thought it was funny, my highlight of the night... that and when my dog randomly licked my face without notice.

I know that Brunet isn't the best, but I hate Bouchard so much more. I can't stand him when he's between the bench. The other night, the only thing he was saying was that he's the luckyest guy in Quebec because he has the best seets and the best job...come on...say something Joel!!!
