Fire Rob Ray

He can't be as dumb to think these games are "solid efforts" and the team "showed a lot"

enough already.

pure ****

Well they did fire Lindy. Maybe they'll do something else that makes sense and let Brian Duff do color commentary.

Fire Doug Allen

But yeah he's terrible. Remember when we got to hear Robitaille rip the team in between every period? I'd rather that than this clearly wrong puff.

Welcome to the bandwagon boys, still plenty of room.

You can't really blame Ray for not knowing a damn thing about what good hockey looks like, because he sure as well never played any of it.

personal fav of the night was the 15 different ways to say JVR's name.

in fact, he just gave up at the end and said JVR once or twice

New scapegoat.

I knew someone would get the title.

It's Rayzors fault! He keeps telling them solid effort, so the keep doing it. Quick, catch Lindy before he gets in the cab.

He shouldn't even be part of a broadcast team given his poor grasp on the English language.

Rob Ray is the least of this team's problems. There's a million things they should fix before him. I personally couldn't care less about what he does or doesn't know.

It's not a scapegoat thing so much as his commentary is completely devoid of things like reality. Move him back in between the benches and let Duff do commentary.

Of course this team has bigger fish to fry. Like another fireplace.

He's unbelievably stupid. It's torture having to listen to him. Can "Hockey Heaven" really not find anyone better than Rob Ray and Kevin Sylvester?

He was terrible before being a color guy, he's even worse now.

Oh I hear ya brother. I was just making a funny.


...but really, maybe we can convince Lindy it was an early April fools joke.

He actually was making some semblance of progress over the past few years...going from always saying something stupid to occasionally making a good point...but now he's gone full Sabres cheerleader and it's pretty disappointing. He's afraid to call anyone out--hell not even the other team. Everyone's a winner with Rob Ray!

Ah, the old "teams are only capable of doing one thing at a time, ever" and "if you fix one thing, you're done, you're not allowed to fix anything else" counter arguments. My favorite.

Completely agree. I thought between the benches he would provide some interesting and unique insight. Now that's gone completely and he's a idiotic puppet.

Clearly this team is only capable of fixing one thing at a time, if that.

i thought he did fairly well as the third man in last year, but he's proved that he is not capable of handling full-time color duties. i'd like to see them hire a legit color guy (and play-by-play guy for that matter) and reduce rayzor's role to just a handful of reports per period.

He's awful and I can't stand listening to his voice the amount of time I now have to hear it. This is way above his head and he has no business being a full blown color commentator.
