Pat LaFontaine on MSG

I gotta say, I'm really impressed with his commentary. He adds a lot to the program when he's on. Great thoughts and presence. It's a little weird because I remember him as mostly an Islander but he was even a likable guy way back then.

Thoughts?

It would be cool if they could get him on more.

Leetch also does a great job as does Duguay. I know Duguay has some ridiculous suits but overall he's very entertaining and offers good commentary.

Despite all the program glitches, I think they've done a sick job getting Leetch, LaFontaine, Richter, Weekes, Guerin, and even Flately this season.

Didn't see Pat but MSG has put on the best hockey show I remember seeing in this country. Don't forget Daneyko. Great chemistry with the other guys.

Pat always seemed like a smart dude.

every time I see Daneyko on MSG and he's talking fast, I can't but think of Vince Vaughn

I think landing Bill Pitdo (or however you spell it) is a very strong step in the right direction. Former ESPN anchor, just very professional and it give the broadcast some more legitimacy in my opinion. Dano is good when it's the general hockey talk, bit of a homer during the Devil games.

I enjoyed when Pat said something along the lines of "That was one hell of a trade" and he paused for a minute because he wasn't sure if he was allowed to say it. It was pretty funny.

I didn't watch much of him but he seemed like he did a pretty good job.

I agree, I liked Lafontaine on the broadcast. I thought he was refreshingly honest and very insightful.

Talking fast? That's not nearly as bad as the foreign quasi-English language he speaks that must have been taught to him by that illiterate moron Resch.

If we can only get our own Hockey only Channel with Debbies / Icelanders / Rangers / Sabres.

I get the NHL Network free every year, I don't know why, I don't ask why, I just enjoy but I hate when the Knicks end up pushing Hockey off MSG, such bull crap. At least we have the other channels to watch but I would prefer a Hockey only NY Metro/State channel.
