Don't have an opinion either way on him. I don't really like Buccigross. Ray Ferraro is pretty okay.
After reading those names you just listed, I'm amazed that the ratings for hockey aren't lower in the US. Who even knows any of those guys? Melrose (a guy who only had 1 tenure as coach in the NHL. If he didn't have Gretzky, no way he'd be on tv.) Pang, only thing he's known for is being the shortest goalie in NHL. Engblom, long career, but nothing to get excited about is there? Clement was before my time, so can't comment on him.

Comparing those guys to the Fox Crew that does the NFL, and it's not even funny. They have Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw, two Hall of Famers and two household names in football. And Jimmy Johnson, at least he had 2 tenures as head coach, but even if he never coached the Dolphins, he won 2 Super Bowls.

NHL really needs some tv people that fans can relate/remember. Hopefully, when Roenick calls it a career, he can go to the US Network and bring some actual name recognition to the hockey crew.
