Voros sucks.

Would you tell that to his face though? I wouldn't. Not out of fear either; just, there are some things you don't say to someone's face. There's nothing wrong with respecting someone you dislike. Believe me, I can't stand Chico. The volume on my television is almost muted.

Nothing wrong with being classy. If a few Beers cause you to lose verbal control, you should probably change substances.

Hahaha I'm watching the game with my girlfriend who doesn't know too much about hockey, and I'm explaining how much of an idiot Chico is...and now I see this.

Have another beer Chico. The guy is literally incoherent. I like when he totally trails off into nothing. Before when talking about Lemaire take the timeout he said something like "No, I don't disagree with this call at all, I really...agree...those two guys...." and that was it. Haha he sucks.

Honestly he is the worst...he bias he just had in on that play was terrible. Reminded me of the old homerism you used to get from the Boston announcers.

Without question, this guy sucks. His nasally, annoying voice is even worse when paired with his general stupidity and blatant, disgusting homerism.

Oh i see. So when someone does something bad, it's ok to tell them they suck.

So by the way, your grammar sucks and your alcohol tolerance probably sucks too.

UGH he is so one sided. I can't stand him. It amazes me he can even talk seeing how deep he has taken Brodeur's **** down his throat.

I spent most of the night cursing him instead of cheering for the Rangers. He is so bad.

Sam Rosen sucks too- but no need to embarrass him or Chico in public. People who would do so are low class

So, you go to an opposing teams building, get drunk and tell their commentator he sucks. You're really a model citizen. Oh wait, we're all about the truth now. You're an ass.

Even as a Devils fan, I'll admit he's not the best in the biz, but I've seen worse. Giannone, well......I'd much rather have Doc.


Also, the Devils are a NJ, but are covered by the NY Media. NY Post, Daily News, and local evening news all cover them. Therefor, they're in one of the largest media markets in the NHL. It's really not a difficult concept.

Same might be a bit of a homer, but the guy is extremely good at his job. Any regional broadcaster is going to be a bit of a homer. I think it's pretty unavoidable. They're around the team so much there's going to be a bit of a bias.

It bugs me when he kisses Brodeur's ass.

But most commentators, particularly color ones, are incredibly biased and have to be to keep the fans happy. I remember an angry Sabres fan sending an email to their pregame show asking why they covered so much about the other team.

Isles won squat until they played Billy Smith over Chico. He wasn't much of a goalie, either.

I lol everytime I hear this
Technically speaking, he is.

He's playing in the New York - New Jersey Metropolitan Area, which is home to three NHL Clubs and is a single media market, possibly making this the largest hockey market as a whole. Hell, the Devils play on MSG and are covered by all New York newspapers.

He's just not on the most popular of the three teams, which has a lot to do with the fact that the Rangers have a sixty-year headstart in one of North America's largest cities.

Half of New Jersey roots for the Rangers. Devils aren't that big.

And Chicho Resch is probably the most mentally impaired hockey announcer I've ever seen. I don't have Center Ice, so I only occasionally see other teams play, (usually just when I watch Colorado/Anaheim streams) but I occasionally get to see it when I watch games with my friends. No announcer has come close to Resch as far as moronic comments goes, and I mean, jeez, we all watch JOE on a nightly basis.
