Well, I've included the foursome that pisses me off most, and I guess if I had to decide I'd go with the Bruins guy, just because he doesn't seem to switch out of annoying mode ever.

I wonder what other teams' fans think of our guys (I'm guessing they find Coatsey quite annoying, as well), and I know it's a biased opinion, but some teams really need to get better people on board. Although if their fans find them decent, then I guess I'm not in a position to say much about it.

Who, Errey or the main commentator? I have to say I always found them decent, but maybe I just haven't watched enough games or at least not enough games involving Flyers and other Pens' rivals.

That explains why I feel like Hamlet's father whenever I have to hear those guys.

Had to watch to FSN Pitt/Root broadcasts down at school for my hockey fill and it made me want to meet them both in a dark alley. Steigerwald is so ridiculously biased that its infuriating. Errey has his moments of being good, but mostly moments as bad as Steigy's awfulness. You know they're bad because 90% of the Pens fans on this board hate them too

I am a Pens fan and I am fully convinced that I speak for the majority of the HF Pens fans in saying that we totally and utterly agree!
I know of no-one in the NHL as bad as Steigerwald and I REALLY cannot stand Chico or the Rangers' guy... is it Rosen... name escapes me. Steigy is in a turd-league of his very own. It is very, very embarrassing for the franchise IMO.

Errey however is merely a buffoon, but he knows his stuff and is frequently funny, 50/50 whether it is intentional or not, but still provides the laughs.

i hate sabres home coverage.. holy crap when he yells scooooooooores it makes me want to punch the computer. This isn't mexico, this isn't a gooooooooooooal. Honestly i wouldn't mind it, because i like the soccer goal call but for some reason his voice just sounds really annoying in general and he is a huge homor.

Steigerwald and Errey are just fans with commentating jobs. And they are whiny, irritating fans who know next to nothing about the opposition (unless they were Pens recently). They're perfect for that fanbase.

Dennis Potvin is the biggset homer I've ever heard though.

Therien is pretty good - he's a Flyers guy and is biased - but will criticize Flyers when they do stupid things and take bad penalties. He also knows what is and what isn't a penalty.

Steigerwald has never seen a Penguin take a penalty he deserved and I think this brand of stupidity trickles down to those retarded yinzers in the woods around that dump of a town pittsburgh.

Steigerwald for Pitt, and it's not even close. I like their radio guy though (Mike Lange).

I actually like Jack Edwards (Bruins) and Rick Jeannerette is sort of amusing with that voice and lines like "upstairs where mama hides the cookies".

Pitt's homers.

Bruins guy is a close second. Even on nationally televised games, he is clearly biased.

Pittsburgh, because they're both awful.

For the Bruins, at least Andy Brickley is good, and does a good job representing himself. He constantly makes the save for when Jack Edwards goes off like a complete ass.
