I guess theyre really trying to boost Season Ticket sales with this...

In the end, Steve aint bad, he knows his Devils, has the creepy loverboy smile on his face all the time, but he does need to lose the SHAT, SCAR thing so fast...

Deb's okay when she's not talking out of the side of her face.

Yeah it seems so covert and sneaky when she does that

Well, this news certainly didn't brighten up my day. Nothing against Steve, but he's a step back. Filling in is one thing, but there's nothing distinctive about him and i just think this was a "lazy" hire or promotion or whatever you want to call it.

Meh, Deb replacing Christine Simpson. I liked Christine :-)

Wow, whoever heard about Deb Placey, I'm kinda surprised she's not staying with the Islanders.

Now that we're revamping the telecasts, I want more of Stan. I'd take 5 mins. of Fischler over a stupid over-cliched coach's corner segment any day (no matter who the coach is.

So very glad I bought season tickets this year. Cangi always sounds like he has a **** in his mouth.

FWIW, I think Cango does a fine job of keeping up with the play. That's one of the toughest things about calling hockey games (a fact Loughlin and Hennessey prove in spades), and he's not terrible at it. But his voice ... ugh. There's a forced, almost cartoonish quality to it, sorta like a bad Casey Kasem impression or something. But, then again, for those slope-browed few who actually dislike Emrick, his voice is often among their top complaints. Maybe Steve's will grow on us.

And apparently Christine Simpson tweeted about a week ago that she's now working for Sportsnet. Guess we shoulda known she was gone. But I'm VERY happy about Deb Kaufman. :wub: There's something about female sports reporters with crooked faces ... Kimberly Jones knows what I'm talkin' about.

Steves been doing the Red Bulls games for the last couple of seasons as well, he hasn't gotten any better at that.

If it can't be Doc, and they promote from within, I'd rather it be Cangy. I never really had any problem with him
