The Buffalo Sabres have an official cheese.

Caps fan:

-Our own Craig Laughlin is going senile. Still love Joe B but Locker is losing it. Had to mute it when they did the promo for The Junkies new TV show. Joe B rules.
-Rangers broadcast team is my favorite. Their goal song is awesome as well.
-Sabres play-by-play is unbearable.
-Canadian broadcasters want to trade everyone after every game and really don't like Russians.
-Jack Edwards doesn't give a **** and I love listening to him.
-Pittsburgh's duo is the worst in the League.
-Doc Emmer, "AHH SCAAAAAAAARRRRRR!!!" So awesome.

Oilers commentators get really bummed when the other team scores. I didn't even realize the other team had scored half the time.

Nobody likes Steigy & Errey, especially Pens fans. Mike Lange or bust.

I usually watch the Sharks a lot, it seems their fans think 'Sharks' has 2 syllables. Instead of "Let's go Sharks!" it's "Let's go Sha-arks" What's up with that?

I love games in Edmonton because you get to see a different view of the same thing. Nice change of pace.

No wonder so many people think he's no good
In their defense, the Pittsburgh crew barely know the Pens players. You can't expect them to know more than a couple of the other teams' guys.

The Washington colour commentator speaks in such a matter-of-fact way. He's fun to listen to now and then but I would probably go nuts if I had to hear him every game.

This is what my roommate tells me. It's not that he doesn't know the game but Jesus his bias is awful. Philly and Pittsburgh are the only broadcasts I watch consistently. Obviously I have a philly bias but I actually like their guys (which I can't say about Philly broadcasters in other sports).

I've never listened to Mike Lange do a game but I've heard some of it and honestly he just says stuff that just doesn't make any sense. I can see why Pittsburgh fans would like h but it just comes off as lame to me.

Once again I obviously have some bias being a Flyers fan.

I find that local ads can sometimes be incredibly corny, but that's to be expected.

The "Dirt Cheap Chicken" ads on the Blues games will never get old

he obviously roots for the pens, but he isn't that bad at the more homerish things like disputing calls against the pens and ignoring the missed for us. He will compliment other teams and whatnot. Aside from a few players who he just doesn't like like Kovy for whatever reason. Not sure what that's about. The Rangers announcers were every bit as bad as the average HF fan claiming every call should go the Rangers way.
