At least, McGuire’s somewhat less annoying than Eddie Olddick.

[sigh]

Albert calls a decent game. Way better sounding than his dad ever was.

Are you familiar with the saying ‘Sometimes Less is More’ ????

The man can’t shut his piehole for 30 seconds. I often wonder if his contract pays him by the word, not the quality, of his work.

Also, he is brodcasting to a very illiterate U.S. T.V. audience, most of whom probably have never heard of the country of Canada, much less that Crosby is from Cape Breton Nova Scotia and that he once went to high school with the 2nd cousin of Bobby Orr’s next door neighbors ex-wifes older sister.


But, that’s just my opinion. What do I know??  confused

Agreed. American audience does not give a damn.

I used to hate Pierre but around 2012 my tune flipped. And I like the hometown and college shout outs. I went to Ferris, so we don’t get a lot of rep but to hear Ferris mentioned during some of the games with Kunitz was kind of neat.
