During the playoffs I'll switch to CBC over Pierre Houde if Cole is calling the games. That voice...

100% my favourite as well followed by Bob Cole for his voice alone, even though he constantly mixes up players and generally is barely following the play. But that voice is just iconic and unreal.

I will go with whoever the guy is who says ET LE BUUUUT! I can't speak French, so I get to ignore any possible dumb things he might say while picking up on the good things when I try to match some of the words to a good play on the part of the Habs. It is the perfect system.

I guess Hughson is my favorite announcer. I differentiate between commentator and color man. The color man is presumed to favor his home team, like Andy Brickley. The most perceptive color man (or analyst, as some would say) I've encountered was John Davidson, who used to cover the Rangers before he became an executive. He pointed out many things that wouldn't have occurred to me. As far as commentators are concerned I like two who work for the NHL network, Kevin Weekes and Dave Reid.

Jack Edwards has the best voice to listen to. Shame he has to be a Bruins homer.

Then Bob Cole solely for the timbre of his voice.

I can't understand most of the French, but Houde does pretty well. So he's third.

Jim Hughson comes in fourth.

Obviously, I can't access these voices locally(Maryland), so it's all from watching crappy streams....

I use to like listening to Hughson when he was doing national games for TSN but since moving to CBC I can't stomach to listen to the guy anymore. Especially after that last Habs/Leafs game which was nauseating to listen to.

What I like about Pierre Houde is that despite calling every Habs game, he tends to remain objective.

I tend overlook content if the voice wows me. Hence, my favorite commentator in all sports is John Madden even if he was a Captain Obvious late in his career.

He's also not afraid to admit his errors when he has a name wrong.

This is my favorite duo as well. Do not get the credit they deserve just because they're in a small market and no one other than Star's fans and crazy people like me who have GCL and watch way too much hockey are going to see them.

Darryl Reaugh is maybe the only legitimately funny announcer out there (it's notjust a couple guys laughing amongst themselves who aren't really funny). Although, being a Bruins fan, it's tough to listen to their call when Seguin does something impressive.
