Barry Melrose is the Bill Walton of the NHL

Can this guy stop using the word "best" in every opinion that he gives. I mean there is just no middle ground with this guy. An episode of NHL2Nite would not be complete without him declaring somebody to be the best at something. Today it was..."Mikko Kiprusoff is the BEST player on the Flames!!"...what's it gonna be next? "Jarome Iginla is the best bald, large-membered, black player on the Flames!" Pretty soon he's gonna run out of "best" awards to give out. Thank god for that sweet mullet...or else he would completely suck.

Bill Walton had a severe speech impediment for many years (through his playing days), which he worked to correct.

I was going to mention that. After declaring time and time again in his pre-playoff analysis that Brodeur was the absolute best goaltender in the world, the belfour statement was hilarious. If Toronto gets eliminated, I guess Khabibulin will be the next "best goaltender in the world".

Ah, gotta love Barry for his personality though. Sure, he likes to exaggerate here and there (well, a lot actually), but without him and Buccigross ESPN hockey would be dull.

first of all i find it ironic that a guy in minnesota is a calgary fan considering how alike (and utterly boring and despicable) both those teams are



yes i am a canucks fan.




shut up!





anyway i think espn should give up tackling hockey alltogether - try to get canadian content, and stick with foxsports or something for your local broadcast

Awards:
When Melrose started doing this cable thing after he got fired by the Kings, I remember he was really good. 1994-95, either it was his first or second year, but anyway my Devils won the cup and the thing I remember was that he was the only one in the media to say that from the beginning, that we would win it. But like John Madden in football and Bill Walton in basketball when they read how smart they are they act it. Which is their down fall.
