Anybody see that Volunteer Energy commercial with Drapes and Osgood?  If you have there's no way you can say either of those guys would be better in front of a camera than Murph with a straight face.

 

Yeah but those are scripted tv ads.

I'm not that upset. Murph grew on me over the years, but rolling with Ken and Mick is perfectly fine with me. To Murphy's credit, he has improved as a broadcaster. I remember early on he couldn't form sentences and didn't really add any insight to the color commentary. He still stumbled at times, but he could articulate about hockey at least somewhat coherently.

The timing is quite odd. Imagine the entertainment value if Ozzie was down there. That would be my first choice, but I doubt he has any ambition for it.

So long, Johnny-on-the-spot.

I agree concerning a petition, or an "e-card" for Murph...
 
I've always liked him; the guy's a multi-Cup winning Dman; a hockey HOF member; he's rather funny - especially when paired with John Keating...
 
It really boggles my mind as to whom FSD will replace him with.



I'll bet SHE is a blonde with really BIG.....hands.

Don't know if this was already posted or not, but here's a link to a petition to get Murphy back for those who are interested. 

 

http://kuklaskorner....-back-our-murph


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

You know if Oz wasn't scouting I think he'd be hilarious between the benches or even Drapes.


Either of those two would be great.

Geez, you think that Murph had awkward sayings.....

"Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings." - Steve Yzerman

How about the Belle Tire girl/woman?  
 
She must know a lot about hockey.  In any case, players would be less likely to turn her down for interviews and conversations during the game.

John Keating rules!  His analogies are legendary.  Anybody remember when he compared complaining about the refs to listening to Pearl Jam?  Something about how it feels good at the time but in the end it doesn't make a lot of sense.  Killed me.  Unfortunately he splits time with the Tigers so I don't think he'll be the replacement, which is a bummer.  It'll probably be Shannon Hogan for some dumb reason.

Whoa, didn't see that coming.  I was esking my buddy during last nights game, where's Murph?

 

 

Being perfectly honest though, we should be happy he lasted as long as he did.  While we all loved him, he wasn't really that great of a commentator or color guy, and I could swear he was either drunk or on opiates for at least a quarter of the games he called.

Personally I despise the Bernstein commercials - even worse when Mickey is in them :confused:

 

Wonder how much $$$ FSD gets from that law firm.....
