I don’t know why I have to keep saying it but bring back Chuck Gormley already.
I miss Michael Jenkings. Him getting hammered on the air after caps playoff losses was amazing
Rally around him for the entire season and Stanley Cup playoffs IMO
They already have Locker getting hammered on air during all games.
Yeah it seems like Locker is drinking more and more each season.
Another regulation win. Very nice.
I think they need to practice more 3 goal third period leads until they get it right.
An Ovie goal, another Jensen goal, a Kuzy assist and a monstrous game by the 4th line. Pretty cool.
We do not need anymore Gormley discourse around here. This has to stop!
I like Koken, he’s knowledgeable. Alexa is a good moderator, she doesn’t pretend to be what she isn’t. Ashooh, on the other hand, is BS’ing his way through these post-games, trying to come across as knowledgeable but says little of substance. And the slicked, poofy hair/beard thing just doesn’t seem right for hockey analysis, lol.
Ya I did like the old crew better but Alexa isn’t bad in her role.
May is awesome.
May is the best! I like Alexa. She is fun and uplifting but hasn’t really found the banter with Alan. It will get better. Nick is a waste. I hate when talks. He needs to go.
He seems like the type of person that cold calls for penny stocks - or wants to sell me a 2005 tahoe with 250k miles for 20k.
Has anyone liked him? Anyone?
Koken is fine - but it’s weird him talking to a young 20’s girl who isn’t even from DC and a guy who obviously isn’t qualified/didn’t even know how many games Wilson has left on the suspension.
it’s so obvious nbc is trying to be as cheap as possible here. This is def a budget cut staff nbcwashington has.
People who analyze the game should actually know more than the common caps fan at least. The guy said Jonah Siegenthaler the other day and per ounces “samsonov” like Sam-son-ov and not Sam-so-nov like it’s correct.
that’s fine amd not huge - but when you’re In studio trying to recap and talk like you know what you’re taking about - it’s a tough look when 90% of fan base knows Siegs first name and how to pronounce Samsonov by now lol
I feel like I'm the only one who stuck up for Ashooh, even after I put in some early criticisms lol.
Just saying let's see how Alexa and Nick grow into their roles beyond their rookie seasons. There is potential in both. Its up to them to reach it.
Not really. It’s up to the viewers - and ultimately NBC lol.
Alexa has potential and this is an incredible opportunity for her. ashooh shouldnt be on a nhl show. Not yet. He’s not fun to listen to, is very basic, and provides nothing people don’t already know, Amd then looks bad not saying players names right.
Michael Jenkins drank to the caps and was fun. Carlin stood out at the arena and talked to everyone each game and provided a loose personality. Tbjs Nick guy is just awful. He is in a suit like he’s speaking to a grand jury - has zero jokes - and provides no fun.
If you’re going to be boring or a nerd on sports tv you better be full of stats/info/knowledge - and he doesn’t have either.
The scoreboard makes it look like it was a close game, but we all know Flyers had no chance to take the W.
When GMBM went for Chara he didn't acquire 1 player but 2 (Jensen.) What a game. What a goal.
I’ve tried to give Ashooh the benefit of the doubt but he saidWilson had 5 games left on his suspension I was like bruh
Anyone have any thoughts on the actual game itself or nah?
I didn’t see it
Same as all week. Offense is playing like it could score 8 goals a game - having trouble protecting leads - overall def been best team each game past 3 games - just can’t play 3 full periods
Hearing Philly fans booing their home team was a jolt or normalcy that I really took to heart
Said the same thing to my brother and dad. Nature is healing. My dad did ask if they were real boos or piped-in boos because if any city is going to add artificial boos to the sound experience, it’s Philly
I think they played well for 50 minutes, which is more than the usual 40 minutes, so progress?
Nick Jensen is a scoring machine. He must have made a bet with his buddy Nic Dowder, who is also a scoring machine.
Nic(k)s powering their way to the net to score goals. Who woulda thunk.
