Hey guys,

I just wanted to comment on how top notch I thought the Nashville broadcast was last night. I live in Montreal so I often end up watching the other team's broadcasts. The Nashville team of Pete Weber and Terry Crisp were really knowledgeable.

One of the thing's I especially enjoyed was how positive they were towards the Canucks players. In particular, they seemed to be big fans of Burrows, Kesler, and the Sedins. Definitely a refreshing change from the hate we usually get.

These old guys really know what they're talking about, even making references to the Millionaires and the 1930s Rangers.

Job well done gents, job well done!

the only announcers i hear that are massive homers to the point where it's literally embarassing are the Bruins, Penguins and Chicago announcers, Minnesota too but not as bad as those 3

You have to add Detroit's. They are one of the worst ones for sure.

Tampa Bay easily has the most biased and least knowledgeable announcers in the NHL, IMO.

I switched over to the Nashville feed since the sportsnet one was pretty bad for quality. Must say they were actually decent to listen to.

What about the guy who calls the Tampa games, he screams bloody murder whenever they score a goal.

I watched a Ducks game this year with their commentators and I have to admit, they were actually a lot better than most. Maybe I got them on an off night. :P

Nashville's Weber and Crisp have been the best broadcast duo on the circuit for a while now. Top notch pro's, very fair and balanced, knowledge and class.

In all honesty much better than any Sportsnet broadcast. Nothing against Shorty and Garrett but they don't give the viewers much information about other teams and their players. Meanwhile the Nashville broadcast highlighted everything about the Canucks, from Hansen's suspension to Henrik Sedin surpassing Naslund to the goalie controversy.

Very in-depth look at the opponent which is refreshing, compared to most other broadcasts which gets a bit repetitive, talking about the same team over and over again. I think they talked more about the Canucks than the Predators which just shows how humble and classy they are.

John & John are kind of a joke as much as I love 'em, so much useless tidbits during the game, I mean Garrett going literally 4 minutes on KD while the game is going on? Hilariously bad.

Senators broadcasters are pretty bad as well, Dennis Potvin is the most colourless colourman I have ever heard.

It doesn't bother me too much since I like to call out the game play by play while I watch for craps and giggles, but my uncle would yell and swear his head off at the TV when ever announcers would start yapping about anything that wasn't going on immediately on the ice.
