Edwards can be a homer but he calls most things even. He's over the top sometimes, but he's been actually really even this year.

And yeah, that's who I'm talking about. From what I've heard he's normally not too bad and is a decent play by play announcer. Just the two fights I lost where Leafs lost he called it one way

Trust me, I'm not going to write home about Brown or Potvin. Brown used to be not too bad, but every year he's getting more and more homerish. Potvin...well, he's Potvin.

Sure...the fighter with the better chin, or the fighter who lands the lucky punch? Honestly fighting this way is reckless...any big guy can just hunker down and throw bombs but most are smart enough not to. Orr is definitely a tough guy, but he isn't smart and it's not a smart way to fight.

Galley kept Brown toned down. Miss him in the broadcast booth.

Galley was such a good colour commentator. Glad he's finding success on HNIC, but I'm sure most Sens fans miss him.

That is crazy talk! I catch a lot of Bruins game and 90% of the time Edwards makes things up to make his team sound better. Ive seen a few times him call it as everyone else sees it but thats when its one sided..if its close hes always saying the bruins guy is smoking the other

Edwards is the worst most bias announcer ive ever heard in my life
