This season promises to be fascinating, six-month case study of acute cognitive dissonance in action.

Goring sucks at his current job. He's going to suck even worse as a color commentator. He should stick to the only thing he's good at. being the last piece to a puzzle.

I don't mind Goring, but I will truly miss Jaffe. He was an up-and-coming pro who was just coming into his own, imo. Ah well...

Butch was fine with his 45 second reports from rink side and the hockey night shows but a full game (let alone a season) of commentary is beyond his grasp. Jaffe was insightful and interesting.

Woe is us.

That's how I see it. Butch seems to go off on tangents now and again. I think he loves the sound of his own voice.

On the bright side this season will be hilarious.

We can also play "How drunk is Butch?"

On the topic of Butch Goring: a funny story about him, as told by Bryan Trottier to Barry Melrose at some ESPN event a year or so back in Manhattan (the interview is on YouTube):

It's circa 1981, regular season game at MSG. Denis Potvin is going through a messy and very public divorce in which his estranged wife has accused him of physical abuse. (Not cool.)

MSG faithful have taken up a derisive chant (sung to the tune of "here we go Rangers, here we go!"...clap, clap): "Beat your wife Potvin, beat your wife!..."

Potvin skates back to the bench during a break in the action, only to see Butch on the bench...merrily mouthing the Garden chant, rocking to the beat. Oblivious to it all.

Potvin is stupified....

Personally, once I heard Potvin, he made more sense. But then again, nothing about this organization makes sense.

Intellectual jokes are my favorites.

The fact that they fired Jaffe for being too negative (which is ridiculous, and akin to firing Wesley Snipes for not being black enough) made Goring's hiring pretty much inevitable.

I'm not sure whether he actually believed that the Isles were one of the best teams in hockey last season, or whether he just saw Jaffe's demise coming and decided to play the role of "Baghdad Butch."
