Cherry = Because he is atleast honest; - AGREE
Friedman = Intelligent and knows how to stir the pot with red faced Healy and numpty boy Stock. - AGREE
Stromboli = Not the best guy for the job but atleast he is entertaining. - ENTERTAINING??, maybe he was on Much Music, but I care nothing for his opinion or charade in my hockey broadcast.
Maclean: Idiot and an arrogant douche; - AGREE
Hughson: Personal opinion and own reasons. He is too arrogant. Voice is good though; - DISAGREE - he is a great voice for broadcasting, unfortunate he is the TO guy now instead of doing the late games for Canucks.
Simpson: Mediocre defencemen when he played, mediocre announcer/analysts now lol. Add the fact that he is too bias against the Canucks when he is commentating; - Simpson was never a Defensemen, he was a defensive center (pretty damn good too)... He does provide excellent insight, IMO and he recognizes small things casual hockey fans don't. I don't always agree with him, but he is an extremely intelligent hockey guy.
Healy: Pompous A$$ lol. He should just wear a Laffs jersey every time he opens his douchebag mouth; - AGREE - Pompous ass. He does sometimes provide excellent insight, but he enjoys talking about negative things and attacking players or teams for any mistake. I don't dig his constant negative feelings.
Stock: Still wet behind the ears and still speaks like a dumb jock lol; - AGREE, He is a complete jack ass and plays favorites with his old teams
Oake: Has the personality of an accountant (no offence too all you accountants lol). - AGREE, but I don't mind him. His interviewing I think is good for casual fans, and he asks questions casual fans might be interested in, and sometimes an off the wall question that catches my attention. I don't mind him, for whatever reason, maybe because he's been there so long he has grown on me.
Who I would like to see as an analysts? Denis Potvin. Articulate and well thought out. And an amazing defencemen when he played for the Islanders. - AGREE, he is great, but he does Islander broadcasts, lives in NY, and I think he is happy where he's at. If he wanted to join the CBC or Sprtsnet team, it would be great but I don't think he wants to move back north.
Recommendations to fire: Strombo.....
