Cole has paid his dues. Its just one of those things, I don't think CBC will pressure him to retire but it will be his call. I do love listening to Cole though, something about his voice and he can really make a game exciting.
It doesn't apply to me, because I like Dean Brown, Rob Kerr, Chris Cuthbert and to an extent - Mark Lee and Jim Hughson (don't jump all over me for liking Hughson and Lee... I said to an extent). However, a lot of people here and all over the hockey world have a problem with the guys I listed, besides Cuthbert.
Hughson and Jack Edwards from Boston are actually really good play-by-play guys provided they aren't voicing Canucks or Bruins games.
I am usually a pretty big Cole supporter, but he's getting really bad lately. He's been confusing Karlsson and Gonchar all season (shouldn't be that hard considering one is right handed and the other left handed). But calling Gonchar Karlsson for the entire PP when Karlsson was in the box was just beyond stupid, even more so than Hughson's screw up yesterday.
You guys in America are really blessed with good commentators. Watch one game commented by a Swiss commentator or a Austrian commentator and you would know what bad commentators are like und never ever complain about your bad ones.
