He's not as bad as the fanbase makes him out to be, he's just no Doc so he gets underrated. There are many far worse play by play guys in the league.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

I don't think Cangelosi got a Kovalchuk contract with MSG.

Lol, yeah I'm sure he didn't- it was just the first number that came to mind and I was typing in a rush.

Doc was outstanding the only thing wrong with the broadcast was Chico and he is still there. Steve will be OK, better than many, never as good as Doc. Too bad Chico is still there, the mind reader.

Thank goodness for Chico or I would never turn on the TV.

Doc and Chico was the duo. But each time I watched a game with Steve and Chico, the chemistry just wasn't there. Emrick and him were like a couple of old friends, understatnding each other very well. Doc would let Chico go on his random ramblings every once in a while, but he always knew when to get back on track. But Doc was Doc. Without him, Chico seems much less tolerable in the booth (though he's always a great guy).

I don't dislike Steve as a person, but I just think he is an average play-by-play at best. He did improve a bit over the years (or maybe I just got used to him), so maybe not all hope is lost, but going from Doc to him is just a huge downgrade.

I think they should've gone with someone with more charisma and personality. As I said, Doc was Doc - you won't find a better guy for the job. So if everyone else is worse than him (in terms of proffessionalism), hire someone who buys the fans with his character, maybe sense of humour... Steve is just transparent.

My idea for the interactive Doc soundboard to commentate on your own games has become more necessary than ever!!!!!

Record suggested he'd be called Scrooge, Holik said: "It won't be the first time." -Bobby Holik Christmas 2008

Well since Doc will NOT be calling the game, i can say that i will no longer feel like i am missing part of thr game experience by being at the game. No hearing Doc call te games that i see on TV will be weird but Chico will be there to add some color to whata his name now :)

Never had that with Doc, IMO.

Maybe its how close Cangi keeps the mic to his mouth or something, just his almost sounds muffled or something, hard for me to describe.

I agree. Plus he's much better than the finnish PBP guys here so I'm not complaining.

Do you remember Doc back in the mid to late 90's? His voice was def different back then and was very nasally. I think he did something or calmed down a little bit and got it under control. He was irritating at times back then.
