Howie drinking out of Butch's $5 water bottle?

Calls Nabby Naboxov last game.
Yesterday I heard a Nina Niederritter along with a Niedermeyer.

Butch has gorwn on me. There is no one that I would rather have. He is entertaining. He does do a pretty good analysis. I love when the ref's miss a call or somthing and Butchie gets very sarcastic. He is going ot be around a long time. He will go into the Isles HOF as a announcer in 2030.

Shot glass theory of knowledge. He had a lot of hockey sense in there so there wasn't much room for anything else.

Apparently Butchie is co-hosting NHL Live tonight at 5. That should be interesting

Butchie will probably be ok with the calm studio setting. He just gets flustered when he gets too excited or overstimulated. Unless that tool E.J. stirs him up I don't expect any gems for the Butch Hall of Fame.

Too bad Butch is so miscast for the color analyst job. Can't forget he is an Islander hero from the dynasty years, and we a hell of a good hockey player with 888 career NHL points and a Conn Smyth on his resume.

On the other hand....this could be a veritable gold mine of fumble-mouth Butchery gems

I love this thread. I may be one of the few on here that really wants Butch to stay. He's great entertainment. I would honestly miss him if the Islanders released him.

You are not alone here, I love Butchie. He provides much needed comic relief to another long season.

It was nice that they talked extensively about the Islanders. I appreciate that Taveres is a real specialty player.

You have been telling us for awhile now that something has been missing and we here at the B-HoF have heard you clear and loud. Now, if you will refer to the original first post, you will see that our HoF upgrade is now completely complete.

With this upgrade, our tremendous thread is now a big cat waltzing around the jungle, ready for prime -- and now stick-a-fied.

Enjoy,

The Committeed

In a way Butch is eerily similar to the Islander organization. He's constantly fumbling and all his mishaps make it all very entertaining. Always great to get a few chuckles during the game, while watching such a sad, sad team.
