Why not have Don Stevens succeed RJ?

Don Stevens is the voice of Amerks. He's been calling their games for 26 years, and while I'm not sure he'd want to leave the Amerks and announce elsewhere, I would LOVE if he took over when RJ decides to retire. Stevens is fantastic, in my opinion. SO much better than Sylvester, or really anyone the Sabres have auditioned so far.

He's near retirement himself.

I personally hope they find a diamond somewhere in North America that's no older than mid 30's. I would rather have a long lasting PxP guy (like RJ), than a guy who has the gig for 10-15 years and retires!

No thanks

Surprised there hasn't been the, "You steal all our players and now you want to steal our announcer? Darcy can go suck an egg." token Amerks fan response yet.

Don Stevens is the worst. Like RJ's son level bad.. His voice makes me want to punch babies.

This.

Someone should also record a bunch of Sylvester calls so they can be played at GTMO to make terror suspects confess.
