Ball/Tomlinson are enjoyable to listen to, but Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro for me

Hughson is the best Play by Play announcer in North America. And while I like Craig Simpson because he's knowledgeable, he's also dull-as-dishwater to listen to.

I'd still pay a little extra to hear Hughson and Don Taylor as PbP / Colour.

Hughson/Simpson followed closely by Shorthouse/Garret

Also, I'm clearly in a huge minority that actually likes Simpson. Shorthouse and Hughson are obviously way better, but I don't mind Simpson.

I wana bleed from my ears listening to hughson and Simpson. Used to love hughson but not anymore.

Cuthbert is a beauty. Shorty is great too but I think cuthbert is slightly more intriguing and he called some great games for us in the playoffs.

Cuthbert, larscheid would be my dream combo

Ya i really liked Weekes but for some stupid reason CBC replaced him with Hrudey (who sucks at colour)

Love Shorty and Garrett.

Love Hughson but not Simpson - he doesn't seem to like the Canucks much

Cuthbert and Ferraro are decent

Best in the biz were Shorty and Tom Larscheid though. I miss Tom. Such a colourful personality, and some great one liners!

Garrett/Shorthouse among the worse I've ever heard. Shorthouse has one annoying frickin voice and Garrett probably has some slight memory disorder... I actually hate Sportsnet, save Murph and of course Taylor

I don't see the hype with Hughson. He's talented and has the voice but doesn't really have as much character as Shorthouse imo.

Shorty and Garret. Especially when they bicker. Lol

John and John hands down.

No one even close.

If not them, I prefer Cuthbert and Ferraro. Cuthbert is the consumate professional pbp, and Ferraro is always enthusiastic and shares whatever hockey knowledge he can - really enjoy that pair.

Simpson and Hrudey suck.

CBC also has the worst intermissions (between the Depends commercials and their gawd awful panel, it's a 15 minute mute), which says alot, because Sportsnet propping up the Vancouver media is just horrid as well.

I think Simpson has really picked it up over the last year and a half. Does a pretty good job I'd say.

I love Ferraro and TSN casts.

Shorthouse and Garret are good, but I'm starting to prefer TSN for virtually everything.

wasn't a fan of Larscheid. too goofy.

Ive watched hockey for almost 4o years .. Ive seen the best and the worst , and for my money Short and Garret are easily the best right now .. A mix of great hockey knowledge , humour , and an all around joy of the game .. We are very lucky to have those gentleman as our play by play team . Pure class all the way ..

I really enjoy listening to Shorthouse and Garret. The way they make fun of each other and how they are biased toward the canucks. What I like about them most is how they call the game leaning toward the positive side (commenting on good plays and not focusing on mistakes teams make), whereas guys like Craig Simpson seem to lean toward the negative aspect of the game and try to tell us how the players should be playing. Cuthbert and Ferraro are great also
