Announcers or PBP guys? The Toronto dude is the one who sticks out in my mind the most, and the guy in Calgary.

Rod Phillips how many announcers get their jerseys retired? Guy was a legend. No one could make radio that exciting.

Doc Emrick for sure, but I gotta be honest. It doesn't feel the same listening to him on NBC after not being our play by play guy anymore. I'm not too psyched when he calls games cause 99 percent of the time it's with Edzo. I loathe Eddie Olczyk.

I can't stand Jeanneret's voice. It just annoys me, and he always sounds like he's slobbering.

I do like Joe Beninati though, and Craig Laughlin as well. I can impersonate both pretty well, and can do a conversation between the two.

I also like Ralph Strangis from Dallas.

Rangers announcer, Ray Ferraro, Pens announcer, and I like the duo of both Red Wings guys... they just love the red wings so much, nice to hear passionate announcers

If anyone mentions Steiggy or Errey, you should have your membership revoked. Ok, Errey is OK.

Sam Rosen needs to be in the top 5. Nobody calls it more down the middle.

Yeah a guy like Joe Benanati is exciting when the Caps score. Listen to him on a Caps telecast when the other team scores. Sounds like somebody died.

Doc is #1 AINEC. I agree with that pick.

I like Sam when he does NFL games, or when he did non Ranger playoff games a few years ago on VS. I hate him when he does the Rangers, no reason, just the way it is.

I personally like the Lightning and Sharks pbp guys, and the old Thrasher pbp guy JP Dellacamera who does soccer now. But Doc is the man.

Beninati goal calls for the Caps are indeed badass.

Yeah it's the nature of the beast. Even if he's not waving his pom poms he does still work for the Rangers

How I came to like Doc after all those years with the Devils is puzzling, but he's great.

Love Joe Bowen and i know he's biased etc, but he caters to the people he's supposed to.

I like his passion for Toronto, and his energy. Also, he doesn't downplay great plays by the other teams and is just as ecstatic about them

Right now it has to be Cuthbert. Gary Thorne would be up there too, if he still did PBP for the NHL.

Gord Miller and Jim Hughson are absolutely obnoxious.

JP was very underrated for hockey. Most of you know his voice from soccer games.

Gary Thorne's voice sounds like playoff hockey to me. It's the voice I remember most (other than Doc's) from my young days when I was becoming a fan.
If only there was a way for NBCSN to poach him

If we're talking about pure play by play, telling you exactly what's happening on the ice, where the action is, and drawing a picture in the viewer's mind, then it's absolutely Rick Jeanneret, no questions asked. No one else is even in the conversation.

If we're looking at total package, there are a couple of guys that are in the conversation. Doc Emerick, Sam Rosen, Jim Hughson, Chris Cuthbert, Mike Lange, Randy Hahn, Jeanneret, and Howie Rose all deserve mentions.
