Not trying to sound like a male chauvinist/misogynist, but if AJ were not a female, she would not be on a national brodcast. A male color analyst with equally bad skills would not be on the air.

If her skills justified her position, I wouldn’t have a problem….but she is just not good.

I await the nasty comments….

Just for context, mike Babcock is equally AWFUL and this just shows that NBC’s hiring department is just as bad as their brodcasters….

Some would say he retired about 4 years ago.

But he hasn’t, they are just going to use him when his schedule allows it.

One of the things TSN and ESPN (and TNT, for that matter) does waaay better than NBCSN is moving their studio analysts away from behind the desks and into a head-to-toe setup and explain their analysis more graphically.  I think they’re dull like cardboards when they’re behind the desks.  Move them out and create a format where they can demonstrate certain plays that led to goals or an amazing positioning play that took away scoring chances leading to a breakaway or something like that.

Them sitting/standing behind a desk at the intermissions is uncharacteristic for a game with such colorful characters and history.

Geez, I have no idea what you and TK are talking about, SYF. I think AJ is a perfectly wonderful person who brings a lot to…

Oh, screw it. I can’t even pretend she isn’t the worst broadcaster in hockey these days.

But if they want to put her behind a desk and let her pontificate about hockey, that’s fine with me. I never watch the intermission shows anyway. Just keep her off the broadcast crew. I’m sick and tired of watching playoff games with the sound muted.

The one thing I’ll give Mleczko credit for is her ability to make the Douche Canoe seem not only acceptable but entertaining.  grin
