Kukla's Korner Hockey

After an in-between period player interview, the host will say to the the player- “Thanks for that and good luck the rest of the way.” Just once I would love a player to say something besides “Thanks”.
The color commentator guy- “Taking away their time and space is key.” Just not Pierre McGuire either, others are now using the phrase too.
“My source told me.” It is 2009, you can no longer hide behind a source!!! New fans of the game may believe you at first, but if you have no credibility, good luck with the ‘source’ material.
“The NHL does not have a shootout when the playoffs roll around.” We know, we know and if they don’t know, they will find out soon enough.
“A left, a right, another left, right…!” A ‘homer’ fight call, as if he opponent is just standing there, taking all the punches.
“He’s one ot the top 10 players at his position.” Most likely in the top 30.
How about you, any phrases starting to rub you the wrong way?
