IMO, they're the perfect mix of objectivism, homerism, and pure hatred for inconsistent reffing.

I grew up watching the Gary Thorne and Bill Clement combo, so they'll probably always be my favorite, but since the only games they call anymore are on Xboxs and Playstations, Ken & Mickey hold my top "current" favorites. I definitely feel cheated when I have to watch on VS or on another team's feed.

Its hard to get better than them. And that's not being a homer.

Being as objective as I can, I've listened to lots of other broadcast teams. I get the NHL Centre Ice package, so I get to check out plenty of games. I think the biggest difference is that while the Redmond-Daniels combo clearly get excited when the Red Wings score, they don't constantly praise the team.

They spend a lot of time focusing on the opposing team, and they give credit where credit is due. When they see a bad penalty either way (esp Redmond) they really call it out. I don't think there's a more objective team in the league right now, although I do like the Rangers broadcast team as well.

Blasphemy!!!!!

Murph can eat more hot dogs than an entire family combined - that defines how awesome he is.

But on a serious note: I can see how Murph can annoy - he is a love or hate type of commentator.

But explain why Kenny annoys you? I have trouble seeing that one. He is very solid - corrects his errors when they are made and follows the play very well.

Dollar Dog night was Wednesday. He had a whole box of them - looked like 5 or 6 to me. I think they let the CBC guy in between the benches tonight for some reason.

But that is what makes Murph so lovable.

He is clearly intoxicated and craving hot dogs!

Seriously though. He does stumble on his words but he does add with his knowledge. They guy is a HHOF D-man and IMO is a big reason Lids was able to make the steps he did to be the D-man he is now when they were paired up.

He may not be a great public speaker but he knows his stuff. If you look past the bumbling he adds some good stuff.

I watch him for the bumbling idiot stuff, which is really just in his presentation. He always adds good info to the conversation. I think its great that we have commentators with actual personalities. The trio provide a collective knowledge of hockey unmatched by most, if not all, commentators.

Maybe it's the fact that my 3 favorite goal calls came from Thorne/Clement. *shrug*

Thorne's calls on the Stevie Y double OT goal, McCarty's amazing game 4 goal, and Drapes OT goal in the finals just give me the chills every single time. There is no replacing the Mick. Easily the best.

Yup. Another memorable Thorne goal call.
