Chris Cuthbert is tops for me. He's got an amazing voice, and can actually add excitement to a game. I mean, the Habs are the underdog knocking off a higher seed, and the commentators are not even into the game...
Obviously, Cole and Neale will continue with the Leafs should they win, but the commentators will likely be flipped around if the Sens win.
as far as the commentators.. oddly enough, my roomate (a bruins fan) by the end of that series found healy to be an idiot and hated him because he always seemed to have negative things to say about raycroft (which is quite true.. the kid makes a good save and he'd be goin on and on about his lack of rebound control or how he looked shaky or how he wasnt set, etc etc)
i hated him cuz of his obvious hatred of the habs (minus yannic) and his all time leafs homerism
all in all, after the series was done.. we both hated the guy
We in the west have been suffering with Whitman for years and now he is back. yikes. Then we have Millen the moron here now. You mix in a little Bob Cole and you begin to wonder where cbc gets these guys. And you are worried about bias in Montreal. Give me a break. In the west we are forced to watch the Bob Cole show every week. No choice. That is long time suffering. You talk about bias. It takes you half the game to discover who is dressed for the other team because Cole wont tell you . He is the most ill prepared play by play guy I have ever seen. So Montreal, you will have to excuse me if I understand your problem but dont feel too sorry for you.
Am I The Only One Sick Of The Cbc And It Commentators ?i Know Most Will Not Boycot Due To The Fact Thats The Only English Source Of The Habs Game ,but Send A Message To The Cbc ....

Im Tired Of The Cbc!!!!!boycot After The Playoffs ,make Your Voice Heard!!!!
I wanted to boycott a long time ago, but I've realized I don't have to because of ESPN. ESPN (and I know this is going to sound like sacralige) has taken over the top spot in my book. They do hockey the best when Gary Thorne and Bill Clement are the broadcasters. Not even close now that Cole and Neale have practically donned Leafs jerseys behind the mic.
Clement's insights are just as good if not better than Neale's and they are both funny, but Thorne is also funny whereas Cole is just a boring homer.
I realized this for the first time yesterday watching the Habs on ESPN for the first time in a long time. We have to keep advancing!
I don't mind Don Whitman, I mean, he doesn't seem like a great hockey commentator, but he isn't that bad, Healy on the other hand just sucks. The only hab he can talk positive about is Perreault (is this guy got a thing for Perreault or what?). You can tell by the way he talks he doesn't like the habs.
Couldn't the CBC find a more objective colour man for habs game???
BTW, I think Kelly Hrudey should take over for Don Cherry all year long. I wasn't a big fan of his early on, but I really like listening to the guy and think he is a great hockey commentator.
