Ozzie since retirement has joined the broadcast, on rare occasions. And I've always thought he did fantastic.

I even remember when he had an injury, he did a couple broadcasts even tho it was brief during the period.

I think he will fit in quite nice. Can't wait to follow more.

I like Ozzie and think he'll be a solid replacement, and an upgrade, from Murph.

Ozzie is a little softer spoken but is a better talker. I thought he broke things down quite well yesterday. Murph has a fun personality but his yelling got to be a little much sometimes.

I thought Ozzie did great for his first day. He had good info about the goalie situation in detroit. And I liked his explanation of why you don't ever want to be labeled a 'project', LOL.

you could tell he was a little nervous last night, and he wasn't as comfortable sounding as Larry was, but he still did a great job. Plus he's only going to get more comfortable as time goes on. He hasn't had a lot of TV exposure from what I can tell. Other than that one really really badly acted commercial with Drapes.

Osgood is going to do a great job. He's got a head for the game and he doesn't sound like an idiot. That's most of the battle right there.

And like I always say, goalies have the best vision for what's happening on the ice. Plus, a better sense of humor.

Ozzie was a good fit.
He mumbles a bit and has hiccups in his speech. But he seems genuine, smart and fairly articulate.
Murph seemed forced and awkward. I'm sure he was smart. But it didn't shine through because of all that awkward.

There's enough witty conversation between Ken and Mickey already. Ozzie is a better complement to them than Murph is/was.

Looking forward to seeing how he does, was not a fan of Murph. I feel like Mickey should be moving on soon, the game has changed and he doesn't seem to be happy with a lot of it anymore and when he is not happy, you the viewer are made aware of this with no room for uncertainty. Never really waremed up to Ken Daniels I like the straider redmond team from yesteryear pass sports. Don't get me wrong they do a passable job but could be better.

Ozzie did a great job yesterday. He is going to be really good at this and I think you have Mickey's long-term replacement in the offing here. He is kind of like a national guy right now, will need to work in a few more jokes and what not, but he is extremely solid at breaking down the game and very well spoken.

Honestly my thought are I hope we can keep him just on the local broadcast for a bunch of years and somebody National doesn't target him, I really think he is going to be that good at it here shortly.

Murph always stumbled over his own words and it drove me crazy. Nothing against the guy, he's a good person, but he just wasn't very media friendly. Ozzie seems concise and more relaxed. He was the same way in interviews as a player, so it's cool to see that carry over.

Ozzie had very much inside info about our prospects. That was what I liked most. Like that Glendening was a former highschool QB at football etc. Always nice to hear that kind of stuff.
