    I have never been a fan of Gord Miller, he would have been the best colour guy but in my listening ears he sounds like a guy that is trying hard but it is not a natural thing for him. My all time favourites were as follows.
    1. Danny Gallivan
    2. Bob Cole
    3 Chris Cuthbert
    After those three it is not even close.

    A good commentator enhances the whole experience, he says what you are thinking, he makes the boring times bearable, he is the what you remember along with the memory of the great games you witnessed. Do you not remember Bob Cole Yelling "Desjardins, Desjardins!!? That is burned in my memory, come on man.

    I'm being honest, it's noise for me... NBC,RDS,TVA , I don't care...

    When I watch some out of the town teams play they're probably useful sometimes but when I watch the Habs I don't need them...

    So you mute whatever device you are watching on?

    No, I let them talk but I don't really focus on what they're saying... Just like I already said it's just noise... like if I was sitting in that Arena or something...

    I could never do that, I even used to subscribe to RDS even though I am not bilingual just because I like the entertainment value in the announcers tone, how he is able to add to the game if you will, maybe I am just weird.

    But do you agree with what they say?

    No, you're clearly not weird, I'm the weird one.

    Did you agree with them 3+ years ago when they were praising him for a team that consisted of players in the design of other GM’s?

    This was about 12 years ago. I was watching the film, "The Rocket", downtown at the AMC Theatre that used to be the Old Forum. Nice symmetry. I'm trying to watch the film's first scene -- the brawl that ultimately led to the famous Richard Riot-- but there's an old guy sitting right behind me who won't shut up. The movie's going on with Richard punching a ref, the crowd going nuts, coach Dick Irvin yelling from the bench, but the old guy behind me is still talking to his companion. I've had enough. I stand up, turn around to confront him, and come face to face with Dick Irvin Jr. I stare for a second at the face I grew up watching and then bust out laughing. I say, "I can't believe I was just about to give you ****!".

    He leans forward, points at the screen and whispers, "I was THERE at that game, with my dad. He wasn't yelling. In fact, I'd never seen him so calm!" He pats my shoulder and smiles, "And now I promise to be quiet!".

    After the film, we chatted about grandkids and the West Island and babysitting. I mentioned that my wife had chatted with him at a mall when our twin boys were babies. Not debating your secondhand accounts of Irvin, just adding a different texture.

    Forget fans, Leafs own tv network did that when showing highlights such as on their 'Leaf Blueprint' show, and even on commercial bumper clips! Outside of their game in an hour or game in 6, I've heard bowen more than Romanuk on their network.

    How sad is that? Your own network would rather use audio from radio guy over TV because TV guy sucks.

    TV in the future I hope has a feature to swap audio feeds. Even mute one or more guys within a feed if we choose.

    With this, Paul Romanuk has elected to move on to a new challenge. We consider Romanuk to be one of the top play-by-play announcers in the game and we will miss his contributions to our coverage

    Not a Barlett guy. Sounds to me like he's auditioning to replace Fred Flintstone. Too many voice contrivances for my humble taste. Love Romanuk.
