Ok i have come up with a solution (pattent pending)

You know you get those sound boards, like the Arnie one(http://www.crocopuffs.com/soundboard/arnold.html)where it has all his famous movie quotes on it, And when you press the button it says the quote (my favourite Arnie one is "Who said you could eat my cookies!!!"?

Well we make one of Doc's comentary, then game time comes, turn off the sound and prss the appropriate button for what you see on the screen.

We can start of with the a few sound clips of the fundimental calls:

"Save, Broduer"

"and another save"

"all alone, walks in"

"with the drive"

"long pass up to"

"motors ahead"

And then just have him saying all the players names.

You get the idea.

Does anyone here have the technical competancy to pull this off???

As you can tell i don't like change.

Sounds like how they program all the NHL videogames.

...I'm down

That touches me, even though i'm miles away from the state of New Jersey, and have unfortunately never been to a Devils game before. But since last season when (thanks to the help of you guys here) i started to watch devils broadcasts, i really began to love the way doc commented on the game. Over here, we do not have this type of broadcasts where the commentary team comes from your own company.

Like chico said, he thinks that it might be old school, but the way hockey should be shown on TV. And i think that way too.

I shall miss you doc!

Gotta add "pitchforks"

Does he say "spirited on up by" or "spirited away" or is it actually "speared on up"?

I find that hard to believe, not saying your lying. I basically mean how is a Devils announcer team our biggest rival? Seems suspicious

I met his cousin who is a cop down in Rumson/Fair Haven who told me Steve is a big Rangers fan.

Not saying its the worst thing ever, and of course you're gonna work where you can get a job, but I'd much rather not have a Rangers fan calling every game.

Is Chris Cuthbert still under contract with TSN? He'd be awesome.

So Lagreca is a huge Devils fan. Maybe they can swap?

Probably no Lou sooner than later. He was mulling retirement years ago according to Marty's book. The day will come one day. It's gonna be strange times with a new voice talking about a team put together by some new GM backstopped by some stranger in net haha.

Nice avatar.

Whenever I think of Doc Emrick, waffleboarding comes into my mind. Waffles. I am now hungry.

I'm a Devils fan, but if the Flyers hire me to do play-by-play, I'd be there in a heart beat and I'd be hoping the Flyers do well. I'm sure Steve, or any other announcer would feel the same. After the Flyers were eliminated, which they usually are, I'd root for the Devils again.

Bottom line, the team that helps me feed my family, gets loyalty over anything else.

I can tell you for a fact that Steve Goldstein the TV PBP guy for the Panthers has been offered the job to replace Doc. Steve is a great guy and I know him personally. He grew up in the NY/NJ area. He got the call about the offer on Thursday night, and is currently mulling his options as he still has a contract with the Panthers and has a family down here in Miami and is not sure he wants to move them up to NJ.

Well we have their coach so why not? He isn't "THE BOOTH, THE BOOTH, THE BOOTH IS ON FIRE!" guy is he?

might not have a choice in a few years, since the panthers seem pretty likely to move.

Being a die-hard Dolphins fan, I'm very familiar with Goldy. He's a good talk show host, and I've been listening to him for years on WQAM. Good PBP guy too. He grew up a Ranger fan, which I know for a fact, but whatever- I like Goldy. I wouldn't mind this.

No, that's Randy Moller, their radio PBP guy.

The Panthers PBP guy? I knew it would be a downgrade regardless, but that would be a huge downgrade.
