how much longer do we have to listen to this Islander's reject. Maloney has so much more insight into what is going on. Joe has finally figured out maybe that he works for the Rangers but he doesn't even know our roster or anything about hockey
I originally wanted Maloney, because of his position as an ex-Ranger and his knowledge of the Rangers. Joe has really grown on me, though, I think his ability to explain a play on the ice and what a player is thinking is as good as any broadcaster I've heard. Not that Dave Maloney is bad at that, but Joe is very good at seeing the play.
To me, that's more important than good stories about the Rangers players.
I think Joe is ok, clearly develpoing. There are good points about his diction and command of the language. I do believe he is a former player too.
Don is Don, he has hockey know how and is a Ranger soooo.....
Didn't Zherdev's goal yesterday look like Alexei Kovalev??

I like Joe, he's a good guy, says some goofy things sometimes, but he's a fun guy to listen to during the games. He can't replace JD, though. No one can replace JD, I think some people might not like Joe 'cause they expected him to replace JD, no one can do that.
i MUCH prefer micheletti to maloney. maloney is incoherent at times, his sentences start off one way and finish in a ridiculously different direction..
"well yeah sam the goaltending is key to this club, and i uhh, well what we have to see is how the lighting in the stadium effects henrik, i uhh, think that jurassic park was a great movie, and uhh, i guess we'll see"
the guy is absolutely worthless in his insight, and absolutely terrible to try to follow on broadcasts. its like listening to sarah palin talk. youre like...wait...what the hell did he just say? they were talking about goaltending, where does jurassic park fit into that?
michelletti tows the line a bit too much for my liking, but at least he is coherent and brings up things that you may not notice in an easy to understand manner. Maloney may be a great guy or whatever, but speaking clearly and making sense is the most important part of his job, and it is without a doubt his biggest flaw.
alright! Joe has no insight on the game or this team. Dave can break down the plays as a former player he understands the how's and why it happened We need a better analyst to work the booth
Joe himself is a former player and coach. Joe does a good job. He does sometimes go a little to far with the Drury praise, but i think he just wants to show the fans the little things that helps win games. Just my .02
