its time for daneyko to do play by play :whistling:


His pace would be a disaster. I know you're joking about play by play, but he speaks to slowly to do color. I'd like to see him do more in between periods/interviews, because he knows his sh!t, but I don't want him doing game work.

Emerick is by far the best play-by-play man in all of sports. Always love the different verbs he comes up with and his use of fractions during games.

Edit: Gary Thorne, anyone? :rolleyes:


Been there done that. Gary Thorne and Peter McNab were our broadcast team for a few years in the early 90's.

McNab was the best color guy we ever had.

well at least TG is reporting that no successor has been named, so there's a chance it won't be cangelosi. although hopefully it's not loubardias.

Good for Doc, Sad for us. Really amazing broadcaster. One of my favorite Doc moments from the past couple of years was when during a Flyers-Devils he was doing pbp for the numbers on the ice with the corresponding players from 20 years ago. He did it for a few shifts too!

Thanks Doc, for the memories. Enjoy your "new" job.

What is all this love for Matty? He is terrible and boring as watching paint dry. He also misses a lot of plays and cannot seem to get a grasp of the action going on.

My main beef with him is so many times during a game he will raise his voice when a good scoring chance is occurring, but then when the shot is taken he slows down and it takes him an eternity to let you know if it was a goal or if the goalie covered the puck. At least when the home team scores you can hear the goal horn before he tells you it was a goal, but if it's the away team you have no idea.

Sad to hear...hands down the best there is. At least if the team makes it deep into the playoffs, hearing his voice calling a Devils game again will be all the more sweeter.

For sentimental reasons...Mike Miller anyone?

Wow. I kinda sorta called this, but I still didn't expect it. I say this not to toot my own horn, but because I hate being right sometimes. :(

No matter who takes over, we are bound to hate him as that person will always be compared to, and will never be able to live up to, the bar which was set so incredibly high by Doc.

B-I-...

That being said, if Cango could speed up his pbP a tad and fill in more descriptive calls. All the while learning how to control Chicos ramblings he won't be so bad. There are much worse announcers out there.

...-N-G-O. We have become so spoiled as Devils fans. Not only do we take the best for granted, we also have very little concept of just how ordinary everyone else is.

That is EXACTLY the same problem I have with him. He drags out exciting plays for such a long time

Still better than Matty where he is talking calmly and then all of the sudden I hear horns and the crowd cheering and then he goes " and the puck is in goal for the Devils" about 10 seconds after the crowd is going nuts.

Good for him, he deserves it hes a class act.....however.....NOW WERE STUCK WITH fvckING STEVE!? sh!t!


I dont know what it will be like actually watching a full season without his excitement. He was always a huge part of the Devils for me growing up.


The sad part is if I actually sit here and think about it, I could get a little upset.

First of all Thanks Doc for the many seasons of enjoyment. Best wishes with the future.

Now I don't have a problem with Steve C if he takes that position. It's Chico I can't stand. He will be worse than when he was with Doc and that was really bad. Then there is the replacement of Steve C. Do I think it could be Dano and Christin Simpson,OH NO. That will be tough to take. I don't want Matt Laughlin to be any part of this.

Randy Velischek might be an interesting replacement for Chico, but I think he is a little too subdued for TV.


Man, I miss Mike Miller(hint, hint MSG?) and Randy Velishcek on the radio(and John Hennessey was good too). Of course I'll miss Doc the most. Still remember meeting him the morning of Game 7 against Anaheim. It's gonna be so different next year

Haha yea but at least then you hear the horn and know it's a goal. When it's the away team you are left completely in the dark until he decides to stop withholding information and finally tells you what happened.

I just cried a little bit!

Since i have pretty much seen every Devils game with Doc's presence it feels like i am losing the person who i go to games with.

Can we trade Parise to NBC to get him back?

Its sad because he called it like a fan, he was, and always will be part of the franchise.

I hope they go outside for a replacement, but please- no Thorne. He hasn't been any good in 20 years.
