Yeah, I'd much rather Eddie leave. Active stick, go **** yourself Ed.

Pierre and Doc make me sick.

I HATE that they are the "A" team for NBC.

They make broadcasts miserable.

I don't give a **** about his quirks, I just hate his homerism. He's like an HF poster who has a bit more random irrelevant knowledge. Obviously you like him, you're a Rangers fan, he calls all the games for your team.

I like Drew Remenda, the Sharks PBP guy, but I get why fans of other teams hate him. His "Couture is a spectacular young player" rants every other game are only a little annoying, but although they're still cool to hear, I'd be infuriated at hearing them if I was a fan of the other team. The difference is, Drew isn't an NBC commentator, and if he was, I'd expect him to tone it down a bit with regards to "OMG THIS SHARKS TEAM IS SPECTACULAR!!!11". Even then he's still much better than Pierre.

And I think McGuire has a great knowledge for the game and I'd like to see him as a GM. But then again, he might overpay for one of his favorite players.

"Pierre...you just traded the Canucks' next 50 first round picks, Nicklas Jensen, Zack Kassian, Jason Garrison, Brendan Gaunce, and a 2nd for Jonathan Toews. What are you thinking"
"We needed a spectacular young player like him for this team. He can win the cup on his own.

He seriously takes away from broadcasts, and tries to be the "star" of every game.
We'll take him off TV and put him GM of your team. How 'bout that?

This exactly! I think Pierre is one of the better ones, but he definitely has some serious man crushes with certain players.

I remember Emrick calling water polo, but I don't remember Pierre.

I'll take Strader and Engblom any day over Emrick, Eddie and Pierre. Oddly, of those three I find Pierre the most tolerable (even though he can be the very definition of the word Creepy).

I don't watch/hear them that much but i was going to post that I don't think Ed likes Pierre. I've heard Pierre ask him something and Ed not answer at all

I think Pierre navigates the media circus just fine. He makes sure to shine light on both sides of the story he is covering, or question he is answering. He is not ignorant, and speaks decent English.. unlike Cherry.

I'm glad to at least see some people tabling who they would want as a replacement. I mean Pierre is pretty much as straight down the middle as you're gonna get these days when it comes to hockey media. He also knows a thing or two about the game. Yeah he has some favorites, but who doesn't? He's also very fair with his game reviews.

If you are against this type of commentator, then name-up and tell us who would replace him? Anyone can just say "Get him outta' here!"
My guess is that person who's named as a possible replacement candidate also comes with faults... cause.. .hey .... we're human and we like hockey...

Is it possible to have a too many men call in water polo?

Olczyk should be fired and Pierre should be moved into the booth so he doesn't have to scream over the crowd.

I can't stand Olczyk. He's so boring and adds absolutely nothing to the analyst role. He provides no useful insight whatsoever. That's great, man - you played in the NHL. So have a lot of other analysts.

I'll take Billy Jaffe in the broadcast booth any day over that greeseball.

And bring Gary Thorne and Bill Clement aboard! I miss the days when they did ESPN broadcasts.

Tonight in the Bruins game in regard to the large amount of post shots: "If this was a basketball game, they would be calling it a clank-fest".

I don't have any problem with his insights or his biases or whatnot.

I straight up just don't like him. All of his mannerisms are annoying.

I prefer Engblom. I like the boring guys. Leave the excitement to the commentator.
