The point of Garrett broadcasting to the west is for him to be biased towards us. I'd rather listen to Garrett talk up players like Reid and Moran, than talk about the thrashers. That being said, the Canucks should have had 4 goals in the first.
Guess I wasn't very clear on my point... I'm definitely ok with him talking more about the Canuck players than the Thrasher players. What I have a problem with when I listen to "homer" announcers is how their team is never in the wrong. For example, any marginal call that doesn't go their way is a bad call. Oh well, guess I'm just grumpy that the Thrashers lost. I actually liked listening to the the play by play guy and I liked listening to Kelly Hrudy's comments too. I really need to catch HNIC more often.
Yah many true canucks fans like garret, you make no sense usually you like pyatt but today you dont. Didnt you just say you plain dont like him. And im sure many of us know what those cencored words are.
Many true Canuck fans like Garrett? You sure as hell don't speak for me buddy as I think Garrett's a thinly-veiled homer who knows a little bit about the game, but that is usually offset by a few dumb comments he'll make.
"Oh yes, gloves up to the elbows would be a good thing" - Something like that, in response to Hughson giving Garrett a little jab, who of course was oblivious.
"I think many teams will be interested in Dustin Brown at the deadline."
I was shocked that CBC had Garrett doing the game. Canucks are my Western team and his commentary's god-awful. At least we have the best play-by-play guy in the league in Jim Hughson, but Garrett is just brutal.
Thrashers seem to be good at playing rope-a-dope, which may make them dangerous in the playoffs. I'm hoping against hope that my Sens don't have to play you guys in the first round. Canucks looked like world-beaters at the start, but you guys were awfully close to completing the comeback in the 3rd and getting to OT.
Great game! Part of me will always cheer for whatever team Marian Hossa plays for.
