Nothing is worse than Pittsburgh announcers or Boston's Jack Edwards, that's for sure.
I agree, they are both incredibly bias. However the two are polar opposites. Steigerwald rarely shows emotion, but if the Pens score he kind of gets excited. Edwards on the other hand yells the entire time and is by far the biggest homer announcer throughout the entire league.
Do you? Beninati still does games on versus sometimes when it's the caps playing.
I think those games with Beninati are just games being feeded onto Versus from CSN Washington and not Beninati actually calling the game on Versus. They let him go last year.

I don't know what gives you the idea Versus will be picking up the CSN Washington feed. Even when Versus has games that are NOT exclusive, they produce their own broadcast this year. Besides, this one is exclusive.
I was being 100% serious, lol, I never had a problem with the VS. announcers...
Well that's part of the beauty of a message board right?
Anyway, in the past, I've gotten the impression that certain announcers and commentators on the network were more than a shade biased. Keith Jones and Beninati come to mind. At times it can lean towards being a home broadcast for the team the Rangers are playing, but that's just me I guess.
Ironically, the guy who I think tends to be the toughest but the most fair is Milbury.
will peeps stop whining about VS? Beninati was canned by them ages ago. It'll either be the excellent Dave Strader or Doc.
do any of you ever watch VS hockey games other than the Rangers?
My bad...I started the whole Caps broadcast team thing, I mixed up VS with NHL Network, when the Rangers are on NHL Net they rarely choose the MSG broadcast. I guess 3 cups of coffee weren't enough this morning.
