I wrote this in another thread and I'll paste it here because it really summarizes my opinion on him:
I'll tell you why I personally don't like them that much:
They repeat the same annoying expressions over and over and over again. Sometimes, you just know it's coming.
(e.g.: "Ma parole, rien ne va plus, ah ben lala, des que le baton est parallele a la surface de jeu..., on ira pas plus loin, la melee qui eclate"......)
Yvon has no sense of analysis whatsoever. He often seems to miss the key play on the replays. He, most of the time, blames the wrong guy for a bad play, or gives credit to the wrong guy when there is a goal. (e.g.: Brisebois passes to A.Kost directly on the skates in the defensive zone: "Ahh ben la Andrei Kotitsine a fait mauvais jeu la dessus, il faut que tu te depeche a sortir la rondelle........" or After a nice top corner shot by Markov: "Et quel jeu de Latendresse sur cette sequence, qui s'est placer devant le defenseur....."
They are really biased towards Quebecois, it's not even funny. Brisebois always plays a great game, Savard is among the best in the world, ....
There are many other reasons...I surely can't do better than them because their job is difficult too, but they don't seem to be willing to improve, and they seem to ignore are the critics and they think they're the best in their job.
I think you are all missing the real issue. I dont give a damn how he pronounces names or what not. The guy just has no clue what's going on on the ice or what the though process of players and coaches is. He has no business having the job he has.
Im with you on that one, but yet he's in the hall of fame.
There has to be a way that we can speak up and show RDS our disgust with Yvon Pednault. My two brothers and I hate him so much its not even funny anymore. He always seems so negetive towards the Habs and it really depresses and annoyes the hell out of me. I watched last game on HNIC and the announcers kept on praising our players (Kovalev, S and A Kostitsyn, Plekanec, Hamrlik, Komisarek, etc) I changed the channel to RDS for a second and the first thing I hear is how nothing is working for the team and how they didnt show up for the game tonight. I just cant take him anymore !
