    Glad to see they got rid of Cammie Granato, she was awful. Don't like that they replaced her with Darren Pang. Ideally you want someone who is very knowledgable in that position between the benches. Pang has never came off to me as that especially when it comes to the rules.

    You don't necesarily need someone like you mentioned. You just need someone who can listen to what's going on between the benches and put it in some hockey sense.

    Cami was really weak ... weaker than Cassie Campbell.

    Oh god, Pierre is still around?

    The between the benches thing is ******ed anyway. Don't mind having updates from ice level, but do you really have to zoom in on the guy with the camera and show him talking for 10 minutes? It's bad enough I have to listen to Pierre, I don't want to see him too.

    They didn't "technically" get rid of her... she's on maternity leave.

    Panger sticks around for a second year... THEN they got rid of her. :sarcasm:

    Darren Pang does good work. I'm sorry that you seem to feel otherwise.

    LOL... I agree. I think it is going to be interesting to see how Hull does with the broadcast.

    I would love to get Hull as a color guy. It seems like in all sports, the best for the job either get a smaller gig or not at all. We have John Madden considered the best in the biz by saying stuff like "I think the team that scores more points will win" when a guy like Dick Vermeil who has an inside scoop and knowledge of the modern game is stuck as a part-time analyst for the NFL Network games.

    how the hell is Cassie Campbell weak, she is one of the better HNIC people in terms of knowledge.

    I guess after years and years of hearing a man's voice for commentary for every game, it is a big difference with a women. I remember the first time I heard her and I also thought it was a little weird but she is a bright person and I do not mind her at all.

    St. Louis and LA? This is disgusting.

    The reason why NHL sucks so much - they rely too much on a team's past reputation and market share when they pick the games before the season starts. And then we get to see a bunch of old losers with 15-or so-game losing streaks when Buffalo, San Jose, Anaheim, Nashville, Atlanta get nothing. What was the point of creating these teams when you don't promote them? Sweeet jesus am I tired of the same old Stars/Blues/Avs games.

    Well, they make up for it in Week 2 with Colorado-Detroit, Dallas-Anaheim and Philly-Atlanta

    Yea, I'm a big fan of Panger. Always have been. Even though he has one of the higher male voices I've ever heard.

    The number 2 team is real weak. Never liked Strader and Hayward is one of the more annoying color men in the league. He might be knowledgeable, but he never shuts up. Ever. He's always talking. That's one of the reasons JDavidson got on my nerves as an analyst. There's nothing more irritating than an analyst who talks too much. He is always talking over the PBP guy. Very annoying. Get Ferraro out of the studio and into the booth. Or Hull.

    For those interested, Emrick, Olczyk and McGuire will be calling Colorado-Detroit on 2/28. Strader, Hayward and Micheletti have Dallas-Anaheim, and Cuthbert, McNab and Panger are doing Philly-Atlanta.

    Are you kidding me? Pang is a complete Idiot he does nothing but scream Pavel Datsyuk's name and talk about how great Datsyuk is (he predicted him to win every one of the skills competition in 2003 I'm not kidding either) then talks about the Red Wings all the time even when the Wings are not playing.

    BTW great to see they are Showing St. Louis, Philly, and LA what Phoenix, Columbus, and Florida not playing Saturday?

    I like Hayward. He talks a bit too much but is very informative and brings to light aspects of the game that go unnoticed.
