I cant stand Gene....I understand he maybe doesn't know all the players/jersey numbers so I will cut him some slack in the consistent play calling department. But his ridiculous rambling about totally unrelated topics, trailing off some inane story just to jump back into the play for a couple seconds only to try and remember his place, and his lame jokes and side commentary are just terrible.

It makes these already difficult to watch games even more so. Id rather have the "boom goes the dynamite" guy at this point.

edit: "Is he listening for Axle Rose?" ****.

Replacement has no offseason. He's been doing this for years.

This I agree with...

This is just nonsense. Even at first blush, you've included the guy with the ... ALL TIME... CAREER... of ALL GOALIES WHO EVER PLAYED... EVER!.... 2nd best career SPCT. That's right, the guy, who over his career is 2nd only to Dominic Hasek in SPCT. And he had a Stanley Cup... and he had two Vezinas.

I'll just say it certainly weakens your argument.

well he's like one of those old school athletes of the past who picked up other sports once hockey season ended... and i don't mean golf, more like power lumberjacking or bull riding

Do you have Hasek in your top 5 goalies in the NHL?

Hey, I'm performing a public service. Distracting from the debacle at hand. I'm all heart.

looks like my poor knowledge of English saves me lots of trouble with the broadcasters. didn't think today's ones were that bad... at least they know their decibels. the Miller counting game was a bit cheesy tho.

Gross loss. Khaira, Roy and Marincin were great again. Klefa and Kessy were better too IMO. Any news on Houck?
