Gary Thorne has the best announcing voice, but when it comes to hockey knowledge, i think half the ppl on this board know WAY more than he does....just listen to the way he mispronounces names in NHL09, etc. his voice is best bar none...nobody can get you amped like he can...but he doesnt know his stuff.
You do realize that's his voice used thru a synthesizer -- which screws up names sometimes. It's not Thorne saying prooost or what not. Its the equipment they use. He doesn't sit there and do every single name.
