"Do you believe it?! Hat trick! Hat trick! Darren McCarty!" From the 2002 Playoffs :P

God I hope he makes a return to the broadcast booth for the NHL.

That was freaking awesome. Could you imagine doc emrick? Drive by McCarty! ! .....just doesn't work the same huh?

you can't have gary thorne and bill cement-head together like that.

one's a top-notch PBP, and the other tries really hard to do interesting color commentary by saying ridiculous things like "beautimus maximus."

I wonder what it would be like to see Thorne/Redmond?

The article headline contains hockey history, but it basically has an NHL slant.

To me, it feels like this list has a very American bias to it, but maybe I'm wrong.

I find most people's views of the best announcers may be largely based on who they grew up hearing. I remember when I was a kid living in Eastern Canada, Hockey Night in Canada was basically the only option for watching hockey so I would hear the same guys over and over again and in that environment, hearing those voices just reminds you so much of the event and there is some nostalgia to it.

Pierre the ****** McGuire should be on "top 10 worst" list, not here. That alone makes the list a joke. Did he run out of names or something? We have a good 70+ years to draw on!

Not even Milbury likes him...


But if you want really bad announcers take this, seriously, seriously bad over here...
