Hearing him whine about the Rangers' fans at the Rock was just classic. Homerism at it's finest, he sounded like he was going to cry.
As biased as he is, that takes the cake, and i was so utterly disgusted to hear that. Way to be a professional chico

I'm not going to add my two cents on a rival team's board but I'll add this...During the Devils 25th anniversary season they brought old timers back throughout the season. Well one game they had Don Lever on during intermission and Dano and Fischler were interviewing him and Stan asked him what one of his favorite memories of playing for the Devils was and he said "rushing back to the locker room after the game to see Chico in the shower washing under his weave. Sorry Chico!" They cut back to a shot of the three of them and Stan and Dano are beet red and shaking with laughter.

I respect him because he loves the game of hockey just like I do, but he is definitely hard to listen to. It's more comical than frustrating though. My dad has been complaining about him for years, and it has definitely rubbed off on me. Emrick on the other hand is a very good announcer.

Should work out great!

The best part of his commentary last night was how he was trying to will the Devils to a win during the 3rd: "the Rangers are scrambling; the Rangers are on their heels". In fairness he was going out of his way to complement Lundqvist, but in a backhanded way: "He's the only reason why they are winning".

He's like the team mom; even though she might know what's going on, she can't see it clearly because she's in love with everyone on the team.

the moronic commentators who say...

what a great save by the goalie, when puck was shot right at the goalie

leafs skating the puck out of their OWN zone...just say their zone

cole/neale/healy

and its called on the icing....AND NOW THAT TEAM CANT MAKE A CHANGE....yes we know that, moron.

No, we are saying (as are Ranger fans) that the Devils are encompassed in the NY media.

The Devils by themselves are not a big media draw, but because of their proximity to NYC they are covered by the NY media as well.

He's in the running with Micheletti..

Ok, ok, Micheletti is not that bad (although he's making more and more of a case these days)

Seriously though, what kind of name is Chico. That's almost all you need to know right there

Wow, that's a very good point. I've never considered it

Even his compliments to Lundqvist were back handed. Things like:

"Anytime he sees Marty on the other side, he brings his A game"

and

"He seems to be doing a better job with his glove side than usual"

And what the hell where you hoping to accomplish by saying that to him? Did it make you feel like a tough guy? I'm sure you're an absolute all-star at your job though, right? That's just a stupid, classless thing to do...kudos for the other Ranger posters for calling out how idiotic that was.

I can understand why a lot of Rangers wouldn't like Chico. He's definitely a homer at times, but you can tell he's heard that feedback and at least tries to take a more non-biased view at times (to the point I think he overdoes it a bit). As far as defending goalies, I think he just tries to understand the factors that led to a goal because there are few goals where a goaltender has a perfect view of the shot and just gets beaten - he's usually just looking to see if there was a deflection or screen. None of that stuff really bothers me though - my biggest complaint with him is that sometimes he just misses the obvious. It's almost like he focusing too much on what he's saying instead of watching a replay & needs someone in the truck to point certain things out.

He admits he's a homer and then starts complaining about the Devils not getting enough support in their own building. Well, you can't blame Rangers' fans if your own fanbase doesn't show up!

And Marty looks totally shellshocked, awesome. If we somehow make the playoffs, I wouldn't mind facing the Devils in the first round.

He may even be worse than Eddie Westfall.

Watching that handshake video only renews my hope of seeing Jagr back in a Ranger jersey.

I know it'll never happen but... that was almost refreshing to see.

He's bad AND a complete Homer.

Emerick is a pretty bad Devils Homer too.
