I like JJ and Clement together. JJ needs to get the mustache going again though. If not, someone call Gary Thorne so we can have him and Clement. Do want.

Now stop it right there!

We had a guy at work that used to impersonate him.

I do think Jackson's homerism can be a bit much sometimes, it's not Edwards/Errey levels, but it can be annoying.

I really enjoy the radio guys tbh, Bundy is the one color guy that will actually be pretty candid and critical.

Jackson is überhomer and hard to take sometimes. Jones is cool. I like Coatsey. Clement is smarter than all of them combined.

Bundy.. He speaks his mind. He calls it how it is. He is very funny.

Clement is the best, maybe versus let him go so it wouldn't be so obvious that all their other broadcasters absolutely suck.

Clement-thorne was the best.

I also think clement kinda limits some of JJ's inane banter that he has with jones.

Bundy has to get coatsey's job when he's done. He was always the funniest guy in the locker room.

I never listen to the radio feed but I like Jones and Clement a lot. JJ is okay but Coatsey is annoying, too hyper and buffoon-like for me.

Really miss that duo... always loved watching ESPN games with them. I will say that Clement is a MASSIVE homer when he is doing our broadcasts. I texted my Devils fan buddy "Sorry" during a game last year (forget why, but it was absurd).

I would like to see them get rid of either Coatesy or Jonesy, as the banter between the two of them can get really obsessive. I would be very happy with a JJ, Clement, and Therien between the benches.

That would be curtailed if he made it on to TV though. I wouldn't be against it, but to get the same Chris Therien would be a pleasant surprise. The stool pigeons at Comcast probably won't like Therien calling people out in the middle of broadcasts.

For real. My answer to this poll would be "anyone but Saunders" if that was an option.

I like Clement the best of the color guys - he's more insightful than most guys I've heard and generally tells it like it is, even if it's a borderline comment you wouldn't normally hear on TV - but Jones and Bundy both do a fine job when they're on.

I like what we have, especially after hearing the Pittsburgh broadcast team. They are such a biased bunch.

The only pairings I would like to hear more would be Gary Thorne and Bill Clement or Mike Emrick and John Davidson

I like the Rangers crew... especially back when Davidson was there. MSG does a good job of being neutral, IMO.

I can't stand MSG's crew, especially Sam Rosen. I worked at MSG while I was in college and had to listen to that guys annoying voice on a daily basis. Stan Fischler is the man, though. Both on air and off.

Coatsey is our John Madden, he provides laughs by saying the dumbest, most obvious things ever. Keep him.

I don't care what any of you say; a Flyers broadcast wouldn't be the same without Coatesy screaming "he who goes first loses" and "I was looking over (the scorer's) shoulder and...". Not to mention how JJ and Jonesy/Clement always make fun of him.

And I think Bundy is the Flyers' Larry Anderson. If you put him on TV, you wouldn't get the same guy because Comcast would never let him be that candid.

LA was great on TV... I think he went to radio only because he doesn't get along with Wheels.
