John Davidson’s Input Improved Our Watching Experience

from John Shannon of Sportsnet,

Being inducted is a group of players who were certainly some of the game’s greatest. Steve Yzerman, Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille and Brian Leetch will be honoured next Monday night, as will New Jersey architect Lou Lamoriello. Between the five, their names are inscribed on the Stanley Cup 11 times. For the past two decades, these greats have left their mark.

Also being honoured will be Pittsburgh writer Dave Molinari, who will be the recipient of the Elmer Ferguson Award. Dave’s talent as one of America’s finest hockey writers, and driest senses of humour, is well documented within the game. And winning the Foster Hewitt Award is John Davidson.

With apologies to the five inductees and Molinari, I will admit my bias on JD’s award….

Proof of his knowledge and leadership is the success that has followed him in St. Louis with the Blues. The true impact, however, he has had on the game (and therefore deserving of the Hewitt award) can be measured by all the fans in both countries that have grown to enjoy the game because of his work.

And while the others will deservedly receive most of the attention next weekend, I wanted all to know how important John Davidson has been to the growth of the game and the NHL.
