Kronner! or Homer!

Woot!
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

I really wish during play Ken/Mickey/Larry would shut the hell up and save the bulls***ting around for the whistles/intermissions.

From the looks of the camera angles that FS Detroit was playing, it appears Kronner's shot went right through and hit Raycroft, rather than Homer.

I think they're funny. They add character.

Did Dats just get hit in the face or something? Looked like he flailed there.

Holmström not touching the puck makes for better chances for the goal not being called back.

I think they're funny. They add character.

I like the way they call games too. I can see how a casual fan is turned off by the banter, since they often skip semi-important play-by-play calls. As a dedicated fan, knowing all the names and calls, it can be a good change of pace.

You're right, but I've seen excessive "character" from MLB/NBA/NFL games in years past, hockey doesn't have as many stoppages and it gets pretty insulting for them to talk back and forth amongst each other while the puck is in play for so long. That's what pregame, postgame, intermissions, stoppages, etc. are for. Also I watch too much CBC, TSN, and Sportsnet, where it isn't very often at all play by play and colour chit chat during play, and rarely ever for that long. Can't avoid being annoyed at it, that's what pissed me off about Versus/ABC/NBC/ESPN/FOX/OLN.

Anyhow, I agree with people above that said it was best Homer didn't touch the puck.. instant penalty if he dared.

To the above post, I wouldn't call myself "casual". I don't need play by play because I can't follow the puck or don't know who has what number. :lol: It's because it's rude and as if the people watching the game don't exist --- I figured the point of doing a live broadcast in the first place was the viewers. The type of chatter seen while the puck is in play is better served for the long intermissions or between whistles. I know this is the Madden effect long absorbed by NHL broadcasts in the states but it's no less irritating. It's generally not a big deal with Wing broadcasts but like before and after the goal it annoyed the piss out of me.

Honestly, if you can't accurately aim a slap shot from there just take it and wrist it. Stuart missed two shots wide on easy chances.

Also, Franzen isnt' playing at the same intensity level as his linemates, perfect example on that offside. Way too drifty.


flip shouldn't pass backwards so close to the blue line, he's gotta wait till he's in the zone. Mule is skating pretty good and using his body out there. Skating fast isn't the easiest thing when you're as big as he is.

I like them too. Just sometimes they tend to wander off for too long.

It bugs me how FSD shows replays of only about half of the penalties and lately has had some quite weird camera angles when the puck is in the offensive zone.

I wasn't referring to you. :) I was making a more general comment- I doubt there are many casual fans on LGW. 'Character' is certainly an opinion, but I can't think of many better commentators.

I like them too. Just sometimes they tend to wander off for too long.

IMO Versus is the worst on replays.

Is there a new mic setup tonight? I don't recall hearing the beer guy in the stands before. Maybe Mickey asked him up to the booth.

That Bud Light commercial with the wimpy dude who can't climb more than three inches up the rock wall is incredibly annoying.

OT: Lucic apparently hit Miller in the Bos-Buffalo game pretty hard. Miller went to play the puck to void a Lucic breakaway, and Lucic nailed him.

Dead crowd probably.

Liked the way the boys finished the period off. :)
