    The doc about Doc was okay. As good as it can be for a 60 minute production. Still a fan of that Phoenix Roadrunners jersey he had hanging behind him during his final broadcast.

    Best hockey voice of all time.

    Detroyit?

    I've only ever heard it pronounced that way by one Canadian announcer.

    Loved Doc. Up there with Gary Thorne as just icons when calling a game. Best of all time.

    didn't care for Doc too much, however his replacement on NBC is really really bad...monotone voice and misses a ton of what's happening on the ice.

    You clearly have more to know.

    Honestly, I had not been entirely aware just how many important hockey games over the years Doc Emrick announced for the national U.S. TV broadcasts. But it was quite illuminating in terms of explaining why I instinctively always went for the Canadian broadcast instead.

    Big Doc fan, I couldn't believe how he could weave narratives into the play call. I couldn't talk that fast much less think of what to say. Thorne is also very good and I enjoyed the elder Kelly.

    I don't hate him but I think he's the worst commentator I've ever heard.

    I'll take Glen Healy over Doc. The whole "voice of hockey" thing is crazy to me. Says more about how bad most of the commentary down south is.

    Yeah I know. That's how strongly I dislike Doc as a commentator.

    Different strokes.

    The NHL on NBC needs Mike Tirico.

    You should know he was an announcer not a commentator.
