There's just something about his wry intelligence that would never work on American television, but is just perfect for HNIC. The way he can sit next to a blowhard like Cherry for 5 minutes, then close the segment with a dry little pun that takes a few seconds to catch up to.

Can you even imagine someone like MacLean paired with John Madden? That would be some funny **** every Sunday.

I thought his Titanic joke was very insensitive.

You can tell he thinks of a pun to use days in advance. There is no bigger square on television.

MacLean is awesome. He doesn't try telling jokes all the time but just sprinkles them in here and there.

On Easter, he told Cherry he was about to hatch. Thought that was pretty good

Ron Mclean is awesome. He's one of the main reasons I love CBC. His puns always make me laugh. Yesterdays titanic reference was hilarious.

He actually ripped on Healy after Healy made that jerk comment to Francis on the hotstove last weekend. Implied that Healy was a tool who shilled for teams in the media in exchange for inside access. Looked like McLean was sticking up for Francis and I like that.

Why did Ron MacLean stare at the orange juice carton?

It said concentrate.

What was the Titanic joke? I was at the game last night and missed it.

FWIW, I think Maclean is great as long as he sticks to being a host and moderator of the discussions. When we tries to act like the analyst sometimes he gets into trouble. He's great at things like the Olympics, and I think the NHL Awards are poorer for not having someone like him as host anymore. Yes, he's pretty corny and schmaltzy but he understands the game, its culture and history.

His book is pretty entertaining for people who are fans.

I love his puns, they're so awesome and well timed. I can only remember a few:

"See you later Abdelkader"
"Dauntless Cherry"
(In reference to Cherry's Easter suit) "You look faberge"

Well said.

His work on Hockey Day in Canada is award worthy every year.

Hanging around Cherry as much as he does and being a long time referee, I'd say his knowledge of the game may be a bit underestimated by many posters here.

Hate Ron MacLean - he is a good host - wish he didn't start believing he's an analyst who gets an opinion.

Could you imaging James Duthie cutting off Bob MacKenzie and spouting off about something.

Despite the fact I think Eric Francis is a moron, I think Healy is more of a moron, so I can respect this.

Ron's awesome, anyways. I read his book and became a fan.
