I feel like pierre doesnt necessarily know hockey that well, he just knows a lot of hockey facts. every game i watch i want to break my tv because he always tries to play 6 degrees of kevin bacon hockey edition. what i mean by that is he always tries to show off that he knows which players played for which junior team and had some random coach that no one cares about. hes like the worst example of a name dropper.

 

yet i feel like his actual analysis is often not that great. he often tries to lead edzo into additional analysis by proposing theories but i find they usually are off the mark.

 

in my opinion he is an example of someone that is book smart about hockey but not street smart about the actual game.

 

 

 

 

 

regarding murph, i hate to see him go. a couple years ago he got a decent amount of time on the nhl network wrap up show at night. i felt he was very solid on there. (certainly better than that tool jamie mclennan they have now!) i also hope this does not mean an increased role for darren eliot as i feel he is TERRIBLE with a capital T. i do not like him at all and will actually mute the tv or turn the channel when he is on.

 

I'll miss Larry "Dollar Hot Dog WOO THE FRIES Miller Lites" Murphy.

 

No I don't want Pierre's dumb ass on FSN D.  I'd rather have Malts or Drapes.

So all this talk of murph doing broadcast drunk, I figured I'd check YouTube to see if anything was on it.

He definitely sounds drunk in this clip

There is already a big void when Mickey makes a laughing inside joke type remark...about officiating or old time hockey, or whatever...murph was always a great sidekick, always there to add to Mickey's line of thinking...making it even more funny...now it's a one and done comment as Daniels continues to call the play by play without commenting...

 

There's obviously more to the story than we know.

Seeing a lot of rumors about it being alcohol related, but my counter would be why would Murphy come out in the media and say it was a shock if that were the case?

pssh, it's worse than that... Daniels often get's on my nerves when he outright contradicts Mick. For example, in last nights game Mick was talking about Iginla and how saying he would only allow a trade to certain teams is saying that he thinks only those teams are cup contenders.... and how he hopes it wasn't the media inventing that line of thought, as opposed to Iginla actually saying it... and Ken interruppted at some point and said "Well, it's his choice..." or something. Sounds minor, but he is frequently contradicting Mick in general, about penalties that Mick is complaining about, about the how the game has changed (for the worse) etc. I usually find myself agreeing with Mick and want Ken to shut up. lol 

 

I have wondered if the powers that be have ordered Ken to keep Mick in line about bashing the refs and the league so as not to bring the leagues ire down on the organization.

A friend told me that he can often be found drinking at a couple of different bars in the Clawson/Troy area... Not sure how true that is...

Actually that doesn't sound to far off.

I think it was more nerves than anything. He was getting better just before they let him go

People are speculating that Murph got fired for being a drunk and now some are suggesting that McCarty take over?  I've personally in a bar with McCarty a few tables over while he got loaded.  Not really sure if the "pawn star" is the right way to go here.

Honestly, Pierre gets a lot of hate because of his "love" for the Penguins but that man has the sickest amount of hockey knowledge on this earth. There is no question in my mind that Pierre is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate hockey commentators. Would I want him on FSD? No. He wouldn't be good working or a single team, but he does a damn good job at working national games. He has the knowledge and can talk the game. He certainly isn't worst than Doc "DRIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" Emrick.


I am not commenting in any way on his hockey knowledge. I just personally find him extremely annoying to listen to. I honestly can not put into words how much I can't stand listening to him. I'm getting annoyed just thinking about him. I would rather listen to slince.... or Jim Carey making that annoying sound from Dumb and Dumber... or Nickelback.
