    Met him once at Newark Penn Station after a Devils game (he was taking a train to DC to do a national game) and he was professional with all the fans, nice and didn’t seem too important to deal with us. I know towards the end some fans found him annoying but because of this experience I will always respect him....unlike the time I met Stan Fischler who was grumpy as hell lol

    There are some people that didn't like his "screeching" voice.

    Count me among them. I found myself disliking his voice pretty strongly. In fact, I tried to find an alternate broadcast if he was on. I kept this on for a few minutes after the game was over, and I was like "why the heck are they doing a documentary about this guy?", what's next "Ed Olczyk - A profile in courage"?

    nice to see Doc mention the influence Bob Chase had on hm.

    I was on of those who listened to Bob Chase call Ft Wayne Komet hockey on my radio growing up

    Bob and the Komets turned me into the hockey fan I am today

    As a devils fan I’m always partial to Doc, although I can see why he’s not for everyone.
    The documentary was good. It showed he took his job, but not himself too seriously.

    Dude announced over 5000 hockey games over 50 years (countless SCF and Olympics) and is considered the voice of hockey ...and you ask why?

    LOL. You probably should've just skipped the thread.

    I think NBC hockey broadcast is the best in the business. The fact that they are getting rid of NBCSports makes me thing we won’t have any NHL playoffs in the US when the new contracts are signed. I hope I’m wrong and they renew their contract

    Doc was ideal for national games. Ever the gentleman, and in my opinion let the game be at the forefront.

    If it wasn't Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond - it always feels like having your uncles narrate hockey to you - I was happy to hear Doc in the booth.

    I think you misread the title, this is about Doc Emrick not Pierre McGuire

    A bunch of fans who take minor things too seriously to the point of getting angry.

    even with Pierre. Like I get he’s weird, but why does it matter? I’ve always found him amusing because of it, and would greatly prefer him to some “normal” guy who just talks and is there, nothing distinguishing about them.

    pbp and color guys are about atmosphere, hockey knowledge beyond a basic extent is bonus. Like the sounds when you’re at the game, sound is important at home too.

    I’ll take two excited passionate sounding guys like Pierre and Doc over two plain, professional guys. Even the most knowledgeable people will end up explaining the exact same 10 things over and over after a year lol.

    the other NBC guys are good but I miss doc already.

    plain, “professional” sounding guys, like from baseball and some other sports make a fast game seem slow imo. The woman on NBC can be painfully dull. Pierre and Doc screaming and yelling and excited over every little thing made slower games sound exciting.

    This was excellent. Doc is the GOAT as far as I’m concerned. And by all accounts an even better person.

    I mean, I don’t hate him, but I certainly would rather listen to nearly any other commentator. His insistence to make up words was painful

    Don’t they all do that? Some signature? At least all the more widely popular guys from around the league over the years had their thing.

    People like a “special” only-here quality AND familiarity. Docs style/vocabulary etc was like his brand for lack of better

    I’ve never heard any of the Canadian announcers making up words. Maybe it’s more of an American thing? I don’t see nearly as many Canadians that enjoy listening to him, so that might explain things?

    Lots of people. His voice was so irritating it makes Jim Hughson sound great by comparison.
