Actually... I think I might remember Millard arguing with him too. I guess they all hate Garrett, as I do.

Also.. Mike Crispino, the guy who fills in for Sam Rosen for the Rangers. Hes not an idiot or anything, but he says "nifty" about 57 times a game and examples of his goal calls.. "and messier has SCORED!!!!! (it wasnt even messier).. "AND A SCORE!!!" ... "OH NO!! ITS IN THE BACK OF THE NET!!" I give the guy credit though.. he isnt too bad, just gets over exitcted and calls goals weird.

Where to begin...

Am I really on TV award goes to...Tony Twist, the guy makes me feel awkward just from watching him.

Do I have any friends left...Greg Millen, acts like hes pissed all the time, i dont know why, if he isnt pissed at the refs hes pissed at a player.

Worst mug goes to....Kyper on sportsnet, every third word is useful, entertaining but one sided analysis.

Best homer impression...this one is split between Harry Neale and Bob Cole, i love the buds but watching a game with these 2 is like watching two monkeys eating bananas.

Most predictable...i used to enjoy macGuire and Millar on TSN but lately all they do is yak about which team is winning in the faceoff circle like its the most important aspect of the game.

1. Don Cherry (the last bastion of McCarthyism...ugh!)
2. Greg Millen (you sucked as a player, and suck even worse in the booth)
3. Chris Berman (go away!)
4. Darren Pang (see Millen)
5. Don Whitman (stick to CFL coverage)

The most annoying tv personality in hockey is none other than Carolina's own Tripp Tracy



A college roommate of the owner's son, he has a job for life with the organization along with everyone else.

Glen Healy is up there. Greg Millen might bother me more but I also am forced to hear him more. Get them both off of tv forever.

As well, Chris Simpson on Sportsnet. She's a cougar that's probably been buttended by quite a few of her brother's teammates over the years. A lot of broadcasts might have bimbo hosts but they're supposed to be young and hot, not old and used up.

Shoot! How could I forget about Jennifer Hedger on SPAC?

The girl is about 7' tall and with long blonde hair but yet she tries to act like one of the guys. Ugggg.

Please take a lesson from Hazel Mae: be a pretty woman and tell the news like it is... 'cause you're much more believable that way.

That guy was wearing a white construction hard hat in Montreal the other night while calling the game. Never did hear the reason why.

Worst homer of all is Dale Arnold on NESN who does Bruins home games. Surprised he hasn't been mentioned here yet. He was screaming his head off in OT like a kid in kindergarten.

I am shocked that no one has mentioned the worst color guy of all time. None other than Terry Crisp. Flip to a Preds game on Center Ice once in a while and prepare to be embarrassed for the game. "Mr. Ice says I am going to be a bit chippy tonight and not cooperate with a hockey game". It is Sesame Street meets the NHL.

Thorne and Clement...like fingernails on a chalkboard.

I'll hit the mute button on the tv and listen to the radio commentary first.

I just got Center Ice this year, so I haven't been able to formulate an opinion on Canadian personalities, but IMO the worst on American television (or at least was) is Jack Edwards. What a hoser!

I'd say Gary Thorne, but there is no personality there to speak of. If you see anything on MSG you'll rue the days that Sam Rosen is out. Mike Crispino has absolutely no business on television and even less business calling a hockey game. It's painfully obvious JD wishes nothing but harm on him.


Chris Berman: Yeah, we get it, his name is pronounced Mar-tah Bro-doo. It wasn't funny the first time, sure as hell wasn't funny the other 85 times you said it.

I say the teams of Thorne and Clement and Millen are bad
Aren't the announcers supposed to be as objective as possible?

Haynes is easily the most annoying PBP guy.

As an Avs fan I'll second this, but I do think Mike Haynes, their radio PBP, is pretty damn entertaining.

My nomination for tool of the century would have to be the Sharks' color guy Drew Remenda. Is there anything he won't ***** about when not in his team's favor?

Thorne and Clement, there's a reason ESPN's hockey ratings suck and it's because of them.

I'm not nuts about Verbeek, but I didn't think Murphy was too bad. (for some of the Wings road broadcasts).

Saw him drunk at Playmakers the other night carrying a drunk chick out over his shoulder - not a pretty sight -

Thorne and Clement. How I wish they would just go away. Terrible.

I can stand Clement to a certain extent, but Thorne, Christ, if I had access to the US Militaries arsenal of hig powered machine guns, I would end alot of hockey fans misery. Ahhh, one can dream......
