While you've been doing a really good job so far, I miss his voice. I guess it's the same thing when René Lecavalier retired, how people were used to his tone of voice.

Michel Lacroix is epic. His voice is part of the Habs game atmosphere and you really notice it when he's not there!

Wow - how awesome would it be if this post was from the real backup announcer!

I will say that Michel's enthusiasm really gets the crowd going.

It probably is the real announcer. There are many "real" people reading and posting here.

Welcome to thaboards, thanks for the info and good luck.

I dunno if that's the real announcer or not, but I was at the Red wings game the other night, and each time Akost was announced, they called him number 36.

From Mike Boone's blog last night on Habs Inside/Out:

"Michel Lacroix: Traveling. Back on Saturday after a two-game absence."

I resent that.

Tough act to follow, but you're doing exceptionally well. I enjoyed your work Saturday. Imagine how hard it was the replace Claude Mouton in 1993 when he passed away en route to our Cup run!

It actually was Marcel Bélanger (who had been the backup for so many years before I came in, back in 2002) that worked the '93 playoffs after Mr. Mouton passed away.

Mr. Bélanger had also worked the infamous 1984 Good Friday Brawl game.

Michel came back as regular announcer for the 1993-1994 season.

Owned.

You're doing a great job by the way, nothing but respect for you. I especially liked the way you said Cammalleri, throwing a little rolling r, italian style in there. Keep it up!

I love the slight accent in pronouncing English names. Claude Mouton did the same too and it only adds character/flavor to our home ice advantage. I hope the Habs never get a perfectly bilingual announcer-- it makes the experience that much more authentic.

My favorite announcement back in the day was: Le but du Canadien marque par numero 26, Canadiens goal scored by number 26, Mats Nassslloooooooonnnnd. Loved it every time.

Oh, and bring back the organ player!

Welcome to the Habs board Goulz. I can't imagine how intimidating it must be to fill in for Lacroix. In my humble opinion, you're doing an excellent job, keep up the good work.

This isnt the first time that Lacroix has not been the announcer at a Habs game. He does it atleast two times a year I think, I remeber he did it last time and some pre-season games.

Man, taking a vacation in the season.. that is pimp.

In the audio clip you linked, is it you doing the play-by-play announcing in the beginning?

What will you be doing when Michel returns? I think you have a good voice. Maybe you should do some play-by-play.

I can't really sing.

And I can't dance, before anyone asks.
