Get ready for Bob Cole

http://www.globesports.com/servlet/s...rtsHockey/home

For the CBC, Jim Hughson and Garry Galley are expected to call the Ottawa-Pittsburgh series. Bob Cole and Greg Millen will be in the booth for Montreal-Boston. And in the West, Mark Lee and Craig Simpson will provide the play by play of the Flames-Sharks.

Screw you CBC.

If we feel like **** for about getting Bob Cole as an announcer how do you think Bob feels not calling his beloved Leafs?

As much as many like complain about biased CBC broadcasters round here, the past couple of Leafs/Habs games have seen a heavy positive Habs spin IMO.

True.

Cole and co seem very very enthusiastic about Price too. He makes an easy save and they're like OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GR8 SAVE PRICE!, etc.

It's not about Bob Cole being a Leaf fan...it's the fact that he just sucks now. He's old, so it's not his fault but he can't seem to keep up with what's going on anymore.

He seems to love the Leafs...but when you call them every Saturday night, you get drawn into Leaf Nation...years ago, someone said he was a Habs fan when he was a kid...smart fella...But, as an announcer now, he is pretty bad in following the play, and trying to pronounce the names..but he does get excited when either team scores...and his Oh Baby, this one's going into Overtime...

I agree that sometimes he gets lost, but I still like Bob Cole. He makes the game entertaining...and if you have watched the past few Habs games that were broadcast on CBC, he continuously praises the Habs. There is no other professional sport harder to do play-by-play for than hockey. Every play-by-play guy gets lost at one time or another during a game.

Bob Cole's stirring call, 27 seconds long:

"They were not supposed to be one of the favourites.... to make the Stanley Cup final this year....these Canadiens....but Ronald Corey got Serge Savard....he hired Jacques Demers....and all together they worked a young team to the top....and now....a 24th Stanley Cup banner will hang....from the rafters of the famous Forum in Montreal ..............the Canadiens win the Stanley Cup!!!"

Bob Cole earned a place in my heart forever with that call. You could tell he was excited for the team, and oh so respectful of the Habs tradition.

I watched a few minutes of their broadcast this Saturday, and I have to disagree.

In my opinion, it was totally called from the Leafs prospective. I do not blame them for that, it is where the VAST magority of their audience resides.

An example, a Leaf player makes a turn over.

Cole calls that as "The Leaf player looses the handle on the puck." vs "The Habs forechecking creates a turn over."

4 quarters for a loonie, maybe. But... the "side" he is calling for undeniable.

Would have loved to have Hughson call our series, but I'll take Cole as long as they win.

It's a definite pick your poison for us. I hate Gary Galley so it's a wash for me.

I believe he once claimed he was a Red Wings fan or grew up a Red Wings fan. He's still A Leafs fan, no matter what he says.

Bob gets a bad rap as being a homer because he is continuously given the Saturday night Leaf assignment by CBC (Crappy Biased Coverage). However, whoever is playing he is a professional and does call a good game, but c'mon Bob is not a Habs fan (he is a Leaf fan).
