Bob Miller

If the Kings win the Stanley Cup, can you see Bob Miller retiring? Do you see him as the Vin Scully of the NHL, just keep on keepin' on?

I think it just allows him to pick when he wants to retire now. He may be a Vin Scully or Chick Hearns, calling them for years to come. I hope he continues calling.

I honestly think he is getting ready to retire. Imo, I think not after this year but the at the end of the 2013 season.

I agree that he is preparing to retire, and probably wants to on some scale, but I am not sure he will retire immediately this year. If we win, I think he retires at the end of next season and then Nick Nickson takes the reigns along with Jim Fox and Evans takes over radio to a degree, either by calling the games or continuing play-by-play.

Never got the sense that he's ready to step down. Considering how long Chick Hearn was with the Lakers and how Vin Scully is still calling Dodgers games, I don't see why Bob Miller would retire now.

I think Miller loves what he does and won't step away until he is forced to.

I love Bob Miller. I think he will retire as soon as his contract is up. I will be sad, but atleast he saw what he always wanted from the kings (not going to say it directly).

Another thing to consider is the huge contract that FSW signed with the Kings today. Until 2024.

I think he'd at least stay through the 2012/2013 season just for being able to tell people for an entire season that they're listening to/watching the NHL champ Kings network or something like that

Lesson in life - If you have a job that you love you do not stop unless it is for health reasons, love one's health, or your employers don't want you anymore.

Bobs looks healthy, not sure about his wife, and employers love him. He will be back.
If and If he decides to retire Nick Nickson will step in and do a great job.

He's a lifer. He'll never retire. Maybe a reduced schedule at some point though.

Like Vin Scully has done over the last 5 years.
