best wishes to bob, but how about hammond's career and his meteoric rise? from being a blogger-sportwriter at a pretty small paper, to being maybe the most popular kings blogger out there, to calling games on the radio? awesome, rich. that's how a journalist makes a career in an internet-based world.

Should have promoted Nick to the TV pbp. It'll be "interesting" to listen to Foxy do pbp.

It'll be frightening to hear Hammond do color on the radio.

I don't like this at all. Jim Fox is French Canadian. He even wears, I am told, his Montreal Canadians jersey when he skates. I vote JDM and I be placed in the booth to call the game and bring some style to the broadcast.

Zad you are right on the money. Foxy wears Montreal colors often in pickup games. He never comes off the ice either, so I guess Daryl aint likely to get a word in edge-wise, which is just as well.

RH could be frightening as a color commentator.

P.S. It been many many many years since Bob missed a game, so I'm hoping he's ok. Get well quick.

They should have just let Heidi to play by play, but on one condition. She doesn't speak and there is a camera on her at all times.

I can only recall Bob missing one game when his daughter was either getting married or graduating from HS or college or something like that. That night Nick did PBP and 99 got his 2,000th point up in Winnipeg. He may have missed one other game but if he did I can't recall it. That may have been the only one.

Jim Fox should take a page from Randy Moller's book:

From Hammond:
Also, just to follow up on Bob Miller, this will be only the 18th game he has missed since becoming the Kings’ play-by-play announcer in 1973. Bob hadn’t missed a game since 2002.

My thoughts exactly.

Honestly, is there any better play by play broadcaster in the business? I think not.

This sucks....its hard to imagine watching a Kings telecast without hearing BOB....

I remember last year when Bob was on the ice before the game doing some pregame ceremony and he couldnt get up to the booth in time for the start of the game, Jim did the PBP for a few minutes.....it was comical....i hope he has been working on it....

Nick should have done PBP on the TV side.

It is going to be interesting to see how Fox does

That would seem obvious.

I guess they didn't have anyone else to do the pbp on the radio other than Nick. I actually liked Nick when he was Bob's sidekick.
