To each their own I suppose but it seems incredibly redundant with the invention of the television and video. I never really listen to pxp guys anyways, I'd much rather just have better mics at ice level and listen to that instead.

I get why someone would dislike a rambling pxp guy on the radio though. That actually makes sense to me.
Brown isn't funny though, that's the problem.

Since we have no choice but to watch with the pbp guys I'd rather they just stick to the game, or information related to the game. Not bad jokes and self indulgent stories

I think you're just taking this stuff too seriously. Its supposed to be entertainment. I'm entertained by Brown and Potvin, so I'm content.

I like the Dean & Denis combo personally. I suppose Galley was the best partner in terms of being "all business," but Uncle Denis has insightful input as well as good colour in his commentary.

and later told his party guests that it was ironic given that earlier in the day he had run over his own dog while everyone knew that really it wasnt ironic at all but in fact a coincidence.

i cant thank you enough for that brilliant simple suggestion.

Reading that in DB's voice just made me go off the deep end.

I hear a lot of crying in here from the OP.

Browner is the best period.

Ottawa fans are never content.

We really are spoiled with Dean and Denis. Dean is one of the best in the biz - that's precisely why CBC hired him to do some HNIC broadcasts. Yes he tells stories and banters with his colour partner - but for the most part it always relates to what is happening on the ice.

I was never a "fan" of cuthbert but I usually don't notice him, so it's like a good ref. You're doing a good job when no one notices you.

I like hockey. I like the Ottawa Senators. The person who is talking over the game is never important enough to ruin a game. Only the Senators can ruin the game by playing like crap. It sucks that Dean Brown ruined a win for your team, but I can't understand that sentiment and don't sympathize.

I don't mind the side jokes and banter when I'm watching him call a tv game but when he's on the radio he goes on way too long during the action. It's as if Brown forgets we can't see the play so he needs to be specific.

Dean Brown >>> Denis Potvin.

I'm not going to complain about Dean.

exactly.
listen when its an end to end game with non stop action in an opener i dont need a 3 part tale about Girgensons. or any of those other tales.
save it for a tuesday night in january for a florida game.

When the game is on call it, when there's a break tell those gems.
Also he is the pxp guy, id rather hear the colour guy add colour rather than the guy whose stories are 50 shades of beige.
