Do any of these guys work for SJ? Hope once this series is over I don't ever have to listen to these ass clowns again.

They're both good. Sorry guys, they're going to say something nice about the other team too. You can tell Micheletti loves Mike Richards.

I don't mind the bias as much as messing up the calls. They called Lewis and Williams, Carter. At one point they said "Vancouver's penalty kill" about San Jose. Seriously, just pay attention.

It could be the smallest unimpressive play and they make it into something huge.
"Did you see Thorntons pass over 3 feet directly on the stick of Marleau ?
Plays like this make Thornton one of the best players of the league"

The guy is sitting in the middle of the rink watching replays on a tiny ass monitor. He's going to get some stuff wrong.

Also, Dustin didn't get tripped, he just fell down.

They usually are, but I'm sorry, they were pretty bad tonight. Very little credit to the Kings.

Homerism wishes aside, they called the Sharks vancouver at least twice and got a number of names wrong.

Again, I usually really like this broadcasting team and they're usually pretty good about calling it as they see it, but if I weren't watching directly, I would have thought the Sharks were on the verge of winning the series on the back of Nathan Couture.

Seriously? Good at what? Not announcing. They called the Kings the Canucks, they said Brown wasn't tripped but Thornton did. They said LA only had one D man out there for the PP (Doughty) when Muzzin had the puck as he said it and they called Lewis Jeff Carter 2-3 times. It was one of the worst called games I've seen/heard recently.

Much better than those Sharks clowns Remanda and Hahn.

But this series' commentators aren't bothering me at all. I must be too focused on the game.

Actually, both players were going down before they were tripped. Good non-call on Brown, but a bad call on Kopi.

Forslund the PBP guy is the carolina hurricanes PBP guy, i don't have an issue with him actually... however Joe Michelleti is uninformed, mistaken, and he steps all over forslund on many occassions at times stating the obvious and takes a lot of airtime away from the PBP guy.

The thing that bothers me about both guys is that i feel like either of them don't necessarily give any information about the team players history... Even some facts about how players did in the previous serious would be helpful... i feel like neither of these guys watched the kings/blues series nor the canucks/sharks series. All the information is basically on the action they've seen in THIS series, whereas history and even immediate history is all very relevant in getting a stat/point across.

These ****s are a godsend because if this was a first round matchup, I'd be stuck with Randy Hahn [mod].

Seriously though, these guys really aren't bad. Although I wish broadcasters would go with announcers of teams not in the playoffs who are unbiased and people like. Bring the Dallas crew in to call games.

They've both been fine. You can tell they are calling it fair when neither teams fans are happy. Micheletti has been fawning over Quick all series. Niemi hasn't been bad either but boy howdy I'm sure Sharks fans are wondering if there is only one goalie out there. Loves Doughty, Voynov... he couldnt stop gushing about Toffoli in game 2. Joe reads the game well.

They're going to step on each other from time to time because they're a mile away from each other in the building. They don't have all the usual hand signals and gestures they can give each other in the booth because Joe is at ice level. That said, I like the inside the glass viewpoint and ill take two announcers total ANY day over 3. When McGuire and Olczyk get wound up with Emrick screaming its like a 3 ring circus at times.

Forslund is the consummate pro. Never too high or too low and I can usually tell without looking at the TV based on his voice if there's a good scoring chance on its way. Always appreciate that quality.

both are good. last night they had an off night, give them a break. it wouldn't surprise me if they are getting gassed. some of these guys are traveling every day from game to game and covering two series. they travel more than the teams do.

How I solve this problem, if I get annoyed by announcers, I just mute the video feed and listen to Nick Nickson call the game. There's a slight delay but not nearly as annoying as some of the other announcers out there.

My only real concern with the announcers is that they won't **** every once in a while.

If it isn't Doc Emrick "slinging" every pass that's "captured adroitly" it's Brian Engblom blabbing on and on over the PBP about Sidney's ability to take it to another level or why grinders like Chris Neil are just really underrated in this league.

And please, Pierre, we don't care about what they did with the PUCK in Kitchener and neither does Eddie, so stop asking him about it.

Thornton didn't flop but he did lose an edge happens, kopi stick was in the area and that call goes everytime, and brown was more tackled all night than he was tripped on that play, even though that was a scoring chance which usaslly is called tighter, seems brown having a history of going down so easy is following hiim this year

I like all 4 guys, Forslund and Cuthbert are my favorites along with Strader, Micheletti and Ferraro both have been good.

Any game without Emrick screaming at you is a game that is called well.

I hate Emrick. I would knife him aside of my life if I could get one waffle board side.
