He does regional games when Jack n boob are on tv. national games get them sent back to the radio
And you thought Quinn was bad...ugg
We’d be down 3 or 4 goals if we were playing Toronto or Montreal tonight. Geez.
Why can’t this team start with any jump ever?
Let this be a lesson to all the whiners who complained about Quinn. He was FINE.
Singh is being pretty subdued, im sure he's fighting the urge to break into Punjabi, seemed more animated on those broadcasts .
Thats a real possibility.
I wonder if hes done many games in English. Its gotta take a fair bit of work to not start talking punjabi
This is his first one as play by play.
Listen to American broadcasts , and see how the Oilers broadcast crew was easily bottom 3/5 in the league.
American hockey broadcasters are the worst !!
Because that’s the lazy Canadian narrative, or have you listened to all teams ? I have. I’ve had NHL Game Center package for 10-15 years now. Name five worse crews than Quinn and co.
uh, this is just super wrong. you are right that there are some excellent regional broadcast teams in the states, but there are also a whole bunch of terrible ones. Edmontons was at LEAST average.
If Jack was commentating we would have won. How dare Rogers stiff us with monotone Singh, dude is worse than Quinn. Actually Quinn was quite a bit better.
My fear is we’ll hear a lot of Singh this season, is this how it’ll be?
The only explanation I saw on Twitter (unverified source may be fake) was that Jim Hughson is refusing to travel to call games for SN. So he’ll be only calling local Canucks games.
If this is true, then Singh stepping in might have been a last minute fix because Randorf left. I imagine we’ll probably see Cuthbert call the east game with likely Quinn/Shorthouse/Michaels covering the west games on HNIC.
Boston’s, buffalo’s Chicago’s, San Jose’s, Dallas’.
Is Quinn still employed by Sportsnet? The tweet we saw posted earlier in the thread implied, IMO, that both he and Remenda had moved on.
Nope. I'll still take this new guy any day of the week. Not that he was very good but, Quinn was that bad.
Singh was awful, I mean he was saying things that weren’t even happening on the ice, it was an absolute joke of a broadcast.
Based on the debacle I heard today I think you may be right. I can’t recall ever hearing a worse broadcast. Poor Louie.
If only we could afford Joe Rogan. At this point I think it’s time to focus more on DMT then D coverage or lack of
I actually felt bad for him. That Oilers down by 2 and Vancouver up by the same. Dah F dude
This was Hamarayan Singh's first English PBP. He's the PBP on the Punjabi broadcasts. I found him decent. His English is good and, if he continues on the English side, he can develop his personality.
As for Hughson, he's probably doing the Canucks' national broadcasts, as Shorehouse is doing the regional broadcasts. So, it'll be a tossup for the Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg national games.
