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

Gotcha. Thx for correcting my guess.

He also did the Flyers/Rangers game for Hockey Day in America; when the Wings were at the Wild and we had Pat Foley (as previously noted)

im happy for him, but im not gonna lie, it is kind of pissing me off, because i feel like if your employed by the red wings, why go do another game?


who cares what he does on his days off???

i think its great for him and will only make him a better announcer overall. there's really no downside to this assuming it never interferes with wings games.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Finally versus gets a guy who deserves the spot. They let the Hurricanes, the Lightning, the Bruins announcers call games. Now they have a well rounded guy who is more than deserving of the job. Ken before the Red Wings worked for CBC kind of like the position that Elliot Friedman is in currently. I just hope he doesn't leave the Wings.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've a friend who is a Flyers fan, and he thought Daniels was fantastic.

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


I thought the exact same, and I had wondered for quite awhile why he hadn't gotten the opportunity yet.

So out of context!!! It's surreal.


It's interesting to hear him be enthused for plays by both teams. Whatever the case, he certainly couples boundless enthusiasm with a great deal of knowledge of the game.

The Hawks PBP guy did the Wings/Wild game earlier in the season.


Yeah, and hearing him say "SOOOOOOOOYVE!" dozens of times got very annoying.

I thought Ken Daniels would be contracted to FSN Detroit and not to the Wings

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

He managed to work up some enthusiasm for Philly's comeback, but you'd never hear him make a call with this kind of bravado for another team. :P

everybody in the flyers GDT over at HF boards was calling him unprofessional, a jackass, and so forth. apparently he called a few of their players by the wrong name. :rolleyes:

Why would Ken have to leave FSN to do Versus occasionally? Eddie Olczyk still does Hawk games.

Haha this totally shocked me after I got home from work and chucked on the recorded game. Total shock!

Good for Kenny, he's a fantastic caller. :thumbup:

I was the same as all here.... I flipped by VS and watched for a couple seconds..."Wha wha whaaaaaat?"

I was happy for him. as a talent he can sell it to anyone he wants as long as FSN does not require his services.. Good for Kenny...National exposure for a Michigan Broadcaster of the Year!

I wonder if he is in a contract year....leaving?:ph34r:

Every goal that game was epic with the "GAME...7!!!!" added at the end of each of them. I saw this about Kenny though and good to have him on the national broadcasts. I always wondered if they would use him for that. He has been great.

It was weirding me out, I had the game on as background noise and kept thinking the Wings were on. :lol:

Good for Kenny though, he did a great job! :)

Piet Van Zant and Kevin Rand better watch out, one day I will be athletic trainer for the wings or tigers! :)
