Kukla's Korner Hockey

One of the side benefits of Kukla's Korner is being able to watch as much hockey as I like. I now have a built in excuse; "It is part of my job", but I still get the look of disbelief from a person who will remain unnamed.
I have probably watched 70% of the games available on Center Ice, either catching them live or on the DVR. I am very interested in how the game is broadcast and I must say there are a couple of play by play guys who need to pick it up a bit, if I were not a true fan, I just might fall asleep listening to them. On the other hand, a few guys need to tone it down a bit. Then we have one guy in particular who almost sings whenever he anticipates a home team scoring chance.
I really enjoy the work done by Randy Hahn
, the PxP man for the San Jose Sharks. He knows the game, gives credit to the opposing team, and seems well prepared on a daily basis. His style in even keeled and one I could listen to every day. Doesn't become the star of the game, just describes what he is seeing and does it very well.
In making this choice, I eliminated my home team broadcaster Ken Daniels and I also eliminated all Canadian PxP guys for the simple reason I have heard most of them for years and they have an unfair advantage; it is in their blood.
I would be interested in your choices, but don't pick your home team broadcaster, unless you have a really good reason.
