I've heard Ken Daniels and Larry Murphy on Versus' it seems like they have some type of contract with them or something!

I just had the same thing happen. Turned on the game in the background, but wasn't watching and said to myself, "Kenny". Good for him. I really think Comcast buying NBC has been beneficial to the NHL coverage.

I turned the game on a little late and was quite pleasantly surprised. Good for Ken, he deserves it.

thought the same thing as soon as I turned it on. Is Murphy there too? haven't heard him yet, but I know he does the NHL Network on the fly. Kenny going national, congrats.

Versus always grabs announcers from other teams. Not sure why Daniels has never been on before. Maybe he declined for certain reasons, who knows. Cool he is on, now.

Normally it's been a standard cycle of announcers and color commentators.

This season they have really been experimenting. The Hawks PBP guy did the Wings/Wild game earlier in the season.

Very cool to hear Kenny on the broadcast.

Just like everyone else, I turned on the tube and was like "is that Kenny?"

If I'm not mistaken VS/NBC has had to cut staff, so maybe they are short of their typical broadcasters perhaps.

I hope this doesn't mean he'll leave us on FSN, but it is nice to hear him. He could announce every game ever for all I care.

Didn't have to cut staff. Comcast had NBC Sports take over Versus. NBC Sports made the changes.

To me he is pretty much "the voice of the Red Wings," so it's weird hearing him call a game for other teams (I believe he did a Flyers vs. Rangers game a few weeks ago as well). Any time I don't have to listen to Doc Emerick on Versus is a win, in my book. :thumbup:
