I like Doc and Edzo. I think they are a good combination.

Steve Levy was awesome back in the day.

I hated Gary Thorne and my hate has intensified from the NHL series. He was terrible then, and terrible now.

Jim Hughson is probably the best IMO.

Bob Cole is terrible.

Doc called it well last night.

I'm a Hughson guy, as long as the Canucks aren't involved.

Cole was great, but he has lost the plot.

Same. He's extremely over rated. He always sounded like a senile old man when he called the game.

I'd broaden that to "any Canadian team". He definitely seems to favor them a little (though he works for HNIC/CBC so I don't really expect anything different).

i'd like emerick more if HE COULD control tHE VOLUME OF HIS voice. save the screaming for when something is actually happening. his goal calls are either home runs or a swing-and-a-miss-and-trip-over-my-own-feet-and-break-my-nose-on-home-plate.

I think Doc is my 2nd favorite play by play guy now after Mike Lange. I can understand people who don't like his sometimes shrill tones and thesarus diving descriptions, but you do get a feel for the frantic pacing of the game from him. Hockey HAS to be the highest degree of difficulty to do play by play of the 4 major sports.

my favorite doc call was Crosbys rookie year against the flyers in OT (the same game where Hatcher did some unrequested dental work on 87) "crosby in all alone, the game on his stick, SCOOORESSS!!!" simple yet beautiful.

The funny thing about Thorne is that for the NHL series for Wii/Xbox/PS3 he recorded the players' names wrong. He doesn't pronounce Malkin correctly. :lol: I guess the voice director either didn't know or was too afraid to correct him.

I assumed that it was all recorded before Malkin was in the league, so they just blended a couple of other sound clips to make his name and that was the best they could do. I didn't realize that any of those things were recorded within the last decade.

He does, but it doesn't bother with the other Canadian teams. E.g., he was outstanding in the Tor-Bos series even though he was clearly a "homer." He wasn't over the top like he can be in Canuck games.

I'd take Doc on any game in any sport. He makes the games even more exciting. I'd like to know what everyday occurrences people would like Doc to describe. One of my favorites would be an ATM transaction.

There is a skit one of the local radio stations played (I think DVE) of Doc calling a prom in the hood.

It is pretty funny.

Yea it's Randy from the morning show. They have a series of those skits. The best is Doc reading 50 Shades of Grey.
