He's one of the few people I can stand on the NHL network.

Kelly Hrudey has always been one of my favourite analysts. Kevin Weekes and Garry Valk are the absolute worst - they are both experts in saying a million words without actually making a single point (or making sense, in many cases).

It's in the future. But Zach Parise is going to be an excellent tv-dude. He was awesome in the World Championships last year.

Glen Healy is dumb, and annoying as ****. I hate him as an analyst. Craig Simpson and Ray Ferarro both do a great job.

I like Ferarro when he doesn't sound like he's lecturing a player from afar.

while i don't agree with cherry much, i think he's awesome because he's so different. i don't get to see him very often but he is always entertaining, regardless of his extreme views at times.

Benoit Brunet made a ton of memorable quotes.

You have to understand French to appreciate his talent.

I actually dont mind Marty Mcsorley as he seems pretty comforable in front of the camera but the stuttering Brad May is just brutal.

Really like Aaron Ward on TSN, as well Mike Johnson.

Strongly dislike McLennan.

Lot's of good guys, Hrudey, etc.

Olcyck, there is a z in there somewhere too, Engblom; can't believe those guys were ever hockey players. How can they do so much talking without saying anything at all?

Jim Lorentz was the best former player turned broadcaster I ever heard.

Dale Tallon has to be the worse. He was so bad he was almost good. I loved it when he was on camera. He looked like he was facing a firing squad.

Glad to hear Brett Hedican is doing a good job. He was one of the coolest players I ever met when I was a fake journalist,

The best one of all time is John Davidson, even though he has since left Rangers's booth for Blue's front office. Sam and JD were one of the most beloved and legendary teams on the air. Having never played hockey myself, most of what I now know, I learned from JD

Jamie McKlennan is downright terrible. I'm always half expecting the cops to show up on set and arrest him for some bad crime. "Sorry Jamie had to leave, on to Golf..."

Weekes is analytical and well-spoken. I think he's great as a hockey analyst.

You all surely know Tripp "having been a goaltender myself" Tracy has to be mentioned in this thread. Not because he's great (he's dorky but entertaining), just because he has to be mentioned.

I always enjoy seeing Roenick doing the broadcasts. I thought he and Milbury were great together at the Olympics.

Damnit, you beat me to it. Best in the business as far as that goes, what I wouldn't give to hear him and Forslund calling games on a regular basis.

Tripp Tracy is.... interesting. Entertaining for sure, but he's definitely proof that just because you have a degree from Harvard doesn't mean you're smart.

I like what we've heard out of Aaron Ward whenever I've had the chance.

I can't stand Redmond's commentary, so almost the opposite for me, but neither are the best or worst in the business. I honestly think Chico and Potvin are worse then Redmond, and there are some others out there that are better then Weekes (Reaugh, Ward).

I think he's fine too. He's getting much better as he goes along. When he first starting working, he sounded like he just graduated from broadcasting school and was doing everything by the textbook. He's a little better in that area. He could still stand to talk a bit less though.

Mike Peca makes me cringe every time he's on. He's so monotone and awkward.

I like Hrudey. I like the strides Mike Johnson has made in such a short span.

Guys I can't stand: PJ Stock and Aaron Ward. I'll give Ward more time because he's still pretty green, but there's no excuse for Stock to still be stumbling over his words like he does. Put him and Ward in a debate and we'd never get a complete sentence.
