All I see is a guy whining about a team and an organization he dislikes. Yes, the Orpik his is questionable. At certain angles it looks like a hit gone wrong because of the juke that Stepan put on Orpik at the end and from other angles it looks a little dirty. Whine about the hit, that's fine, no need to go the extra length and bring Malkin and Crosby into it, who had nothing to do with it.
Drop some F bombs and throw the other team/organization as a whole under the bus. Anything to take away focus from the mediocre at best Rangers getting their butts handed to them by the Penguins..AGAIN..
If he is getting better (and that's debatable) it's because he was so bad to begin with! He can only improve. It's not his voice per se that annoys me, but his fake broadcasting voice. I am in no way comparing him to Doc, there is no comparison. Of course all play by play guys have signature phrases, but the problem is a sharp angle shot is not a shot from the faceoff circle! He uses it to describe shots from all over the ice. He also really needs to expand his vocabulary, that has not improved at all.
As someone else said, he frequently gets plays wrong. Shots clearly off the post are described as great saves, whistles seem to confuse him. There have been penalties that he doesn't even mention!
He seems to want to be a color guy, because often he stops describing the action for long periods of time while he tries to impress us with his knowledge. I guess you can see that I really don't enjoy listening to him at all. My hope that they fire him in the off season just took a hit when he won these 2 NY Emmys. I cannot imagine what it'll be like to listen to playoff games. Ugh.
Thank you... Beginning to think I was the only one who thought this
