I like Dave Strader, think he is an above average play by play gujy, but for some reason, I like Goldie more. Maybe its his not-so-common voice, or maybe its just his passion for the team. I want someone who is like Joe Rose/Mad Dog for the Fins, Eric Reid for the Heat, Joe Z for the Canes, someone that will show there emotion for this team. Thoughts???
I think Goldie does do a very good job as a play-by-play, but he can never take the job away from Strader who's voice has been a part of NHL broadcasts for many years and way before I became a hockey fan.
i agree with the others. i like goldie but strader's a solid pbp guy. what an enormous leap forward from the rimmer, who was possibly the worst in the league. he's been slightly better with columbus but man was i glad to see him go. he, btw, has been doing games since methuselah was a child but that hasn't helped him much.
on the topic of our broadcasts, what the hell is FSN thinking will all those damn promos covering the screen during live action??? c'mon you morons, you have plenty of time between whistles to hammer us with your promos.
Strader is a much more experienced and overall better PBP than Goldie. Goldie is fun to listen to at times, but he does go over the top and is a big homer. I don't mind that so much because we rarely hear people sounding like huge homers for the Panthers, heh, but a little Goldie goes a long way.
Goldie + Potvin would be kinda bad over the long haul as well, Goldie kisses up to him a lot while Strader just does his thing. Just promise me Randy Moller never makes it back on TV
