We miss Dean Brown

CBC cares only about game priority and that determines which commentators will call it. They probably never think of how much convenient it would be to just have Dean Brown call all Sens games on CBC since he's the Sens' play by play man, knows the team, and is already in Ottawa all the time. I mean, if the Sens game is "game 1" or "game 2" priority on CBC (meaning if the Leafs and Habs aren't playing, or are playing each other), they just give us the "number 2 man", Bob Cole. Having Dean call all Ottawa games would also be easier for Greg Millen, who comes over from Toronto to do HNIC with Dean. This brings up the question of why CBC swapped the colour commentators of Dean Brown-Garry Galley and Bob Cole-Greg Millen last year? It would make more sense to have kept Dean Brown paired with Garry Galley to call Sens games on CBC since Garry lives in Ottawa as well I believe.

In the end, we get Bob Cole and Garry Galley for round 1. Dean Brown and Greg Millen will be calling the Boston-Washington series.

This.

I don't like Cole in the season. I don't think he is going to get magically better for the playoffs.

Bob Cole has a nice voice.

But mixing up Sergei Gonchar for Erik Karlsson for the entire duration of a powerplay is simply unacceptable.

Meh, at least he adds excitement to the game. Dean Brown bores me.

I'll take Bob Cole any day of the week. Who cares if he mistakes? Nobody can add that playoff excitement like he can.

If you have to rely on the PBP to recognize players, then I'd say that's the real problem.

I love Cole's voice and all, but his senility is really getting bad. Especially with all our new players this year, he's just completely incapable of getting their names right. I think it would get pretty annoying over an entire series. I would absolutely love to have the Brown-Galley duo calling the games.

Cole has the playoff pedigree, hard to not go with him. Regular season is a wash.

I don't know our players numbers, but its annoying when he goes "Gonchar has the puck!" and its Karlsson. Or when he calls Kuba, Kubina.

It bugs the hell out of me.

If you're going to be an announcer you need to know the names of the players you will be announcing.

That said, it's really not that big of a deal. I have just grown used to Dean Brown and I like the way he does play by play.

It's not like he puts people to sleep.

The only thing I want my announcers to do is tell me which player has the puck, and when the play is blown dead if it was because of a penalty or a offsides or a goal or played with a high stick/hand pass etc. (Sometimes I'm watching the game on a crappy stream, or something I have to watch on a crappy TV, and I have a hard time picking up numbers)

Bob Cole does none of those things.

I don't need more excitement watching hockey. I'm nervous enough watching the game by myself as it is.

Yep.

Now Healy between the benches is something to really be exercised about.

Im glad I dont have to listen to Dean Brown. On CBC he is ok... With Potvin he is annoying and with Gord Wilson he is unlistenable.

Sorry we're not having Dean Brown but he and Millen seem to be a matched pair for the CBC, so I will put up with Bob Cole just so long as Gary Galley is the colour guy.

What is sad is that Cole should have retired long ago. Listen to his calls in the 80s, like in the Flames win, and he's great - follows the play, knows what is going on, calls a great game. It's sad to hear an echo of this as he trys to call games into his dodderage.

Typical CBC, no gonads to do the right thing. It took Hughson being ready to bolt somewhere else for him to bump Cole from the top spot. Hughson was NOT a happy camper.

Brown is at the top of his game, let him so the Canadian game, and for a team that he knows better than any other play by play person. And Brown is best on HNIC because he sticks to calling the game more than on other networks.

Cole has that classic appeal, and I especially like that in the playoffs. I don't mind.

i have no problem with bob cole calling our series. he still has fantastic pipes and he captures moments like few broadcasters can. yes, he forgets names and numbers now and again and he is absolutely annoying calling the leafs, but when he calls us with the leafs not involved, he's just fine. and galley of course is superb. we could have done much, much worse than to have cole/galley calling this series.
