Or was simply clueless with no insights?

"NHL Skills on display in an NHL game". No **** Kevin?

I liked Crow. He had some insightful comments whenever a PP was going about setups and missed assignments.

I LOL'd.

In all seriousness though, he was awful, but not as bad as Mark Lee. Mark Lee is fantastic at calling the Olympics - I wouldn't want anyone else doing the bobsled, or maybe the biathlon. For hockey games, he's absolutely awful. Stuttering a lot, mispronouncing names left and right... That Nystrom hit on Johnson - he didn't know it was Johnson until about 10 seconds after the hit, he just started proclaiming "Oh, what a hit on.. uh, Nystrom just laid someone out.. uh, looks like it might have been... Ryan JohnStone".

He gets excited at ALL the wrong times (dump-ins? a crisp pass in your own zone? really?)... Just a horrid play-by-play guy.

Kevin Weekes has earned over $12 million from the 1996-97 season through the 2008-09 season in the NHL.

(HockeyZonePlus.com)



You might be interested to know that Peter Sidorkiewicz earned $2,140,895 in the NHL between 1989-90 and 1988-89. I don't know how much he earned for the the 1988-89 season and the one game he played in 1987-88 as salaries weren't made public before 1989-90.

I wasn't aware of that incident. Perhaps he did change over time or maybe it was only a momentary lapse in judgment.

My greatest impressions of Weekes has been over the last several seasons as first the goaltender of the nearby New York Rangers and then with my beloved New Jersey Devils. I honestly liked Weekes when he was with the New York Rangers. I saw him in many interviews of the course of those four seasons, and I was always impressed.

I know that he was held in high regard by his teammates with both clubs.
