Yeah, technically in French Letang's name is pronounced le-TUHN. As JS#1 pointed out.

I swear these guys must read HF...

They've both been calling him "talbo" all night....and i've NEVER heard them say it before this thread popped up.

Doesn't Talbot himself say it with the T?

Apparently, Fleury was born in Grenobles, since Errey called him a "Frenchman" earlier tonight.

Someone tell Steigy all he needs to say after a goal is "Scores" or "he scores" and he can drop the "he wired the puck into the goal" and "he ripped it into the goal".

Thank you

Can someone please tell FSN Pittsburgh I now choose to watch the other FSN feed every game, except when we play Florida, Nashville, Carolina, Detroit or Colorado? Yes, that is correct. Every other local broadcasting team is more professional, knowledgeable and easier on the ears than Steigerwald and Errey. I only switch over from time to time so I can pick up another anecdote for this thread. It only takes about 3 minutes worth of aire time to pick up on one of their gaffes though, so I don't have to suffer too much.

They're the worst in the league, imo. Florida's PBP guy, Goldman, is better than Steigerwald. Lindsay as an analyst doesn't say much, but he doesn't sound clinically insane like Errey does. Nashville's duo is strange, for sure. And Crisp is hard to listen to. But I'd take those two over our guys. Carolina? Forslund is one of the best in the business. Yes, Tripp Tracy is annoying, but I'd take him over listening to the two idiots. OK, Colorado's PBP is bad. Like, really really bad. But I like Peter McNabb as a color analyst.

We suck so badly in this area. It astounds me that the org. chooses to ignore this issue.

Steiggy is just so brutal it's not even funny. I think it's pretty well-established at this point that Steiggy is the worst PBP guy in the league.

At least a guy like Jack Edwards brings some comedic value to the table. Steiggy's jokes...... not so much.

Nice to see that Steigy gets as much puzzlement from Errey as we do.

Also caught Steigy talking to one of the Thrashers people and the Thrashers person says, "Oh, you mean she has a butter face?" Christ did I want to hear the rest of that conversation.
Thanks for sharing.

Not sure they can do much. I think Errey/Steigy are FSN employees. Pretty sure the Pens employ Lange/Bourque for the radio.

Why can't Mario & Burke buy there own all Penguin station on TV and rehire Lange & who cares. FSN has to be the biggest joke of a station. I don't even want to get into how poor it is.
