    He should have had a shot at the NESN job over Wack Edwards. Goucher is one of the best in the business and I'm sad to see him go, but happy for him that he gets a shot as a TV guy.

    Dafoomie posted so many great Bruins games where it was just Goucher and Beers on the call. Very sad to hear that he is leaving to Vegas. He really is a great voice.

    Man, that is too bad! Dave Goucher is definitely one of the best in the business. Vegas' gain is our loss for sure.

    Love Goucher's calls, perfect voice for the game but that goal is just another reminder why Bergeron is my hero.

    Rare that I listen to games on the radio, but Dave Goucher was INCREDIBLY good at keeping you on the edge of your seat during gameplay with his constant changes in tone. Jack may have some decent hockey knowledge and may be "entertaining", but he doesn't have nearly the skill at his job that Dave Goucher has.

    Has any other thread in HF Boards history had a 100% consensus?

    Dave G. has the best voice. I will miss him.

    Congrats to Dave and Sheriff Shane Hnidy

    Aw, this sucks. Goucher was great, and there were so many late nights at work where the only time I'd get to listen to the Bruins on the way home was through the Radio.com app. Happy that he got the job, but bummed he won't be with us anymore. Hopefully he does one last bit with T&R!

    Wow... During my poor years after college I listened to pretty much every non NBCSN game on the radio. He is amazing and will be missed

    On the other hand I'm genuinely excited that he got such a good gig, gives some rooting interest to Vegas now I suppose
