We all know what Doc brings/brought to Devils hockey, and it does stink that he's not ours still.
But come on with Gary Thorne! He had a few good years with us, but he though sensational screaming for any goals by a superstar was how to get on hilight reels. (in this respect, he is similar to Brooks' sensationalism, to try to get on as many websites as possible).
Not to mention the oft-mispronunciations over the years. (Gilcrest, Drooz from the top of my head.).
And this is going to sound crazy, but what if Chico were a network announcer. (I know he once was). His chemistry with Doc still trumps Eddie O. The other night, Gm. 5, Doc asked him a question, and it was dead silence for more than 10 secs.
If it doesn't end tonight, it will be a VERY painful weekend, with all the shirts and jerseys coming back out. Where I am, (northern Morris/Passaic/western Bergen counties) they've all but disappeared since it was 2-0.
