Eh, the Post. I'll wait on this one. If it's true the guy is a bore.

It's also in a press release from NBC:

EDDIE OLCZYK NAMED LEAD ANALYST

Former NHL player and coach Eddie Olczyk, who has been an NHL on NBC studio analyst since February, has been named lead game analyst for the NHL on NBC. The announcement was made today by Sam Flood, NBC Sports Coordinating Producer and producer for the NHL on NBC.

I like it. Personally, I found Doc a lot more listenable when paired with Eddie instead of JD.

Uh, I can't stand him. It pissed me off that OLN had him as a "hockey analyst" after he couldn't even hold onto a coaching position for a whole year.

OLN and NBC get announcers and analysts that know what they are talking about!

he may have sucked as coach, but i think he's a great color guy. he worked pens games for a few years before his coaching job so it's not like he doesn't know what he's doing.

He played in the NHL, plus he coached the Pens for a year and a half, not less than a year like you said.

Anyway, I think he's a good analyst.
