    Caps fans love Bennanati. I don't get it. He's a poor man's Mike Emrick. Like a really poor man's Mike Emrick. Like the bum on the street compared to Bill Gates. He's so Goddamn awful, I threw a party when he left VS.

    I lived in Philly the last year and I think their broadcast is top notch. Can't beat Keith Jones in the booth and Bill Clement in the studio.

    Clement is fantastic. “And after 22 years ... Raymond Bourque!” Gives me goosebumps every time.

    Yeah that's what I thought. I miss those two. Best duo ever.

    You’re right! And yeah — I would kill to have those two calling our games. I had hoped that NBCSN (or Versus or OLN or whatever channel broadcasted NHL games before it) would use the ESPN crew post lockout. Such a shame.

    I can’t figure this either. Caps radio is much better than Caps TV.

    I posted this on my Twitter yesterday to commemorate the Matteau 2OT winner 24 years ago. Included is Thorne's call of the goal and after he says, "1940 is history!" Uh we still needed to win another series there Gary. Notwithstanding this error Thorne was a great hockey play by play man.

    I automatically despised Micheleti only because I grew up listening to JD. I’ve warmed up to him over the years though.

    Oh goodness... I went to college in DC. Beninati didn't annoy me all that much, but Laughlin drove me absolutely nuts. Thinking of him regurgitating every single awful hockey cliche twice a game still makes me cringe, 20 years later!

    When the Devs scored late to tie game 7, Gary Thorne started on and on with the curse thing, all throughout overtime. Matteau scored, 1940 wasn't a curse, just history. That's what I always thought he meant.

    Thorne and Clement were very good together but...

    NBC showing each and every playoff game >>>>>> ESPN showing just select playoff games and not every one.

    We can agree to disagree on a couple.

    I really like both Maloney and Valiquette. Not sure why you dislike LaGreca, but like Kenny Albert? Woof.

    Fans seemed to like them more than they liked each other ha. Well documented that those two did not always get along very well...

    Loved Gary Thorne calling hockey. Great voice for it. Hoping that after the NBC deal expires, maybe the contract moves to someone else and they bring back Gary and avoid the trifecta calling the finals games. Doc is done, Pierre is Satan, and Eddie is better in a studio role rather than repeating the same exact things every game.

    Doc is so horrible. His voice and style of call do not translate well to today. It's very last century.
