wow, how awful is this guy at calling a hockey game.. talk about bland and boring.. ******* the rangers cant get a PbP guy who doesnt sound so feminie? and seems to have never actually watched hockey before.. does he talk in ebonics? just leaves words out of the sentences.. man we are in for a rough ride once sam calls it quits.. they better get someone decent to replace him.

He's solid as a backup guy. Better than previous guys we've had do it (see Crispino).

Whenever Sam decides to call it a career, I think the job goes to Kenny Albert or Howie Rose so I don't think you need to worry about that.

It's not a big deal. Sam Rosen misses about 20-ish games a season.

Just as an FYI, the guys on the Jets board were very pleased with our announcers.

And all they heard was Giannone

He is absolutely horrendous, and having him call a game takes a big chunk of enjoyment out of it for me.

I like him. Not the best, but far from bad. Of course, he's no Sam, but who is?

I'm shocked he didn't bust out "score from the side" tonight.

We've all been spoiled by Sam's great calls. JG isn't bad at all, much better than a lot of other teams' announcers.

I dont think people realize how many terrible play by play and color guys there are out there. Ever watch some of the games on NHL center ice? I've been put to sleep by many of the guys that call games for teams around the leauge. Sam, Joe and Gianone are not that bad, seriously.

Eh, I don't really see what the big deal is. Then again I never really pay attention to what the play by play guys say anyway. They're basically just white noise to me. I have eyes, I don't need someone to tell me what's happening on the ice. I can see for myself just fine.

He's not solid by any means. Bob Wischusen was very good. I'd rather have him than the pathethic Gianone.

Really have to disagree on that. If you take out the homerism shown by those two (and hell, I'll even throw in Steigerwald), then there is no question in my mind that their call of a game is better than Giannone's. We may hate them for their bias, but I'd much rather hear them call a game where they have no rooting interest than Giannone.

Ok, maybe not Edwards, upon reflection. But it's close.

Jeanerette's voice is GRATING. Edwards would be a good commentator if he WASN'T a homer.

But the fact is he is, and he's unbearable to listen to. He's an idiot and it sucks the enjoyment out of a game listening to somebody ramble on like he does.

Okay? I have center ice too. My dad is a penguins fan so I end up watching around 70 pens games every season. Do that and then tell me that Giannone is the worst announcer in the league.

His goal calls are pretty terrible but he's ok I guess.

I was a little confused why he got more excited from Gaborik's EN goal tonight then the other 2 goals during the game.
