If she sees more camera then microphone time that would be for the best of everyone.  Women female commentators or play-by-plays are usually just not right.  Sorry.

From watching a number of Bruins games on Center Ice, I can say she definitely knows her stuff (and is easy on the eyes).  Anyone who can hold their own in the studio with Mike Milbury is a worthy addition to the NHL Network.

I too prefer Women female commentators to women male commentators. Less confusion all around.

Excuse me, your misogyny is showing.

She’s actually much better than a lot of the Men male commentators I’ve seen.
