ugh. this is like when the yankees replaced lou gehrig with babe dahlgren. i mean, yeah, you're not going to replace doc, but don't replace him with that guy. lou must like him because they stand eye to eye.

Well....i saw a really old tape of Doc doing a game and his voice was annoying...then it changed. Maybe the will happen w/ Cangy.

Steve's play by play skills are adequate; but his tone and voice pitch are both really irritating....really, really irritating. This sucks.

This.

He can handle his own but man is his style annoying. When he says "wide of goal" or "toward goal" I want to throw up in my hands. Then there's the ever popular feces / self-mutilation reference every time someone scores. (Shat! Scar!)

Who knows. Maybe Steve will work on his style a bit now that he's the full-time guy. One can hope, no?

The thing is, Steve and Chico have such awful chemistry. How many times would there be like a five second awkward pause during play?

I think people are over-reacting to this. I never watched a Devils game solely because of Doc and years ago he used to irritate me and eventually he just grew on me.

I'll give Steve a few years and I think he is a decent replacement. He does not resort to stupid catch-phrases and rhymes and I think he has decent chemistry with Chico.

totally disagree and do not remember any awkward pauses.

Over/under on how many times he says "gobbles up" in referring to a loose puck per game.

Steve will be just fine. His chemistry with Chico will improve since they'll be together every game and not sporadically.

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.
