I’m also too tall to be Chico. 

do you wear a dead squirrel on your head?  I guess you could call it a rug for those that find dead squirrel offensive.

No, one of the few blessings in my life is  still having a full head of hair at age 45.

But it’s an easy adjustment to go full dead squirrel.

Also, I am setting the over/under at 2.5 for the number of times Dano calls the new person “Cangi” during the first regular season game next season.

I was going to go 3.5 but I think he’s gonna be better at it than we think. 

I reserve my right to change the number in the event we hire some dude whose name like rhymes with Steve Cangialosi.

i love dano, but please give him salvador’s job and then politely ask salvador to go far away somewhere. 

listened to the AHL guy tonight and he has a pretty good voice, too. 

what about kenny albert?

Kenny and Cangi are close, I’ll allow it.

Out of the 32 television PBP announcers in the league, I would place Cangi somewhere in the middle third.  That's plenty good enough for me as some announcers I have heard are really cringy.  Cangi had a bit of a shaky start but by season 3 he hit his stride and has been decent since.  I will actually miss him on the telecasts of the games.

Thankfully Cangi's position is determined by MSG and not our owners so the chance of his replacement being the cheapest hire around is unlikely.  My first choice would be Kenny Albert but I think he has too much of a good thing going on with the Rangers radio as well as ESPN to leave that.  I also think he will likely be replacing Sam Rosen soon as he appears to be winding down his career.

I hope it's not Laughlin.  While he is pretty good at being an MC or a host, he is just awful as a PBP guy.

I agree, but I might accept him if he brings his sidekick with him.

Chico is really the only reason to listen to the Devils "radio" broadcast.  Matty is just awful.  It shouldn't take him half a period to announce the score.

I agree, but I will also say that Chico is so good and so enjoyable, I can tolerate Matt. And, on top of that, there were a number of games this season where I started watching on TV and had to switch to radio because I had to drive my daughter somewhere. Usually I would just DVR and watch when I get home, but this season got to a point where I was fine with just listening and not wasting the time going back to watch. And I have to say, I found the radio broadcasts far more enjoyable, and Chico is a huge part of that. He is so right on the money with his analysis the majority of the time.

Bring back Doc and Chico and that’ll bring back the winning.😁

I miss Doc, I never know when there’s 320 seconds left in the period without him.

Met Loughlin on the concourse, very approachable, took the time to talk with you, never rushed you during the conversation and even was engaging with the kids, very nice guy.

have met him several times and agree he’s one of the nicest guys around, but I can’t stand him on the radio. You’ll hear a goal horn, a 2 second. pause, and then “he scooooores!”.

I thought Matt's play by play was a lil mo better. Got excited when Dev's scored. He was better all around!  Replace Cangi, move on.  You know that whomever it is, half of us will like it, the other half won't.

Yeah I love Matt, but PBP isn’t his forte. He’s a great studio host.

Exactly right. Half the crowd will either say “I’m never watching another game again until he’s gone” or “I mute the TV during broadcasts”. Those folks won’t be happy no matter what, I suspect.

It's just amazing to me it's already been 11 years of Cangi on PBP.
I'll miss him to be honest.

I wonder what was the motivation to step away?

 

He’s probably just looking for a lane.

We don't always realize but we've been so damn spoiled as fans having Brodeur and Doc for SO long, it became our standard.

Now for the rest of our lives, anyone stepping in those roles will always be pale in comparison.
