Cuthbert, but I am amazed that Beninati has zero votes, he is one of my favorites

As if other commentators aren't biased too... See Jim Hughson, Pen's, CBJ's, Sharks, etc

I can't stand Hughson.
He sounds like a wacky morning zoo radio DJ.

As a Rangers fan, I love Sam Rosen. When he was with John Davidson, that broadcast team was freaking amazing. I miss JD.

Jim Hughson.

They don't let just anyone be the commentator voice for the NHL video games.

Maybe Hughson is a Canucks homer and I believe he is from the area. You also know EA Sports HQ is in Vancouver right? Maybe they corrolate with each other and maybe they don't.

Don't often listen to the local broadcast guys, but as far as the national ones are concerned it's Cuthbert by a longshot for me. I used to be a big Hughson fan but he seems to have gone downhill a bit with CBC.

Chris Cuthbert got my vote but damn it was tough choosing between him and Emrick. Both are class all the way.

Jim Hughson is GOD AWFUL. Use to be great but last 5+ years have been terrrrrrrrrrible. A good voice does not make you a good broadcaster (see: Bob Cole).

I really like the Stars commentators.

Oilers commentators Quinn and Debrusk deserve more credit then they are given also.

Hughson hasn't done the NHL games since NHL '09 for PS2, and really hasn't done them since '06 (Xbobx 360 and PS3 versions have had Gary Thorne since NHL '07).

All the PBP commentators in the Pacific are good except Anaheim's.
