Jack Edwards is a Moron

I can't believe this idiot is actually an NHL announcer. I realize teams often hire homer announcers for play by play, however, Edwards undermines the purpose of play by play announcing. It's one thing to overhype players and complain about the refs, but it's another thing to not call fights the way they happened. A disgrace to his profession.

This was from earlier tonight. Great fight, btw.

I could compile a list of similar Edwards BS over the years. Here's another one I like. :)

Assaulting his knuckles with his nose

Huh

His obsession with Lucic is disturbing. I wonder what he'd say if Lucic got KO'd?

Yep, Edwards is a blowhard joke of a PBP guy. Thank God we have Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond. They aren't perfect but they're far better than Edwards and others of his order.

This is not news, unfortunately, and I feel sorry for those of you who may have to listen to the Boston feed. He is by far the worst or worst next to Bob Errey and the other Penguins announcer.

Jack Edwards has always been an over-the-top moron; no news there. Reminds me of "Another right by ROY! Another right by ROY! Uppercut! Uppercut! Bicycle kick by ROY! Piledriver! Another right by ROY! ROY summons strength from his ancestors for a fireball! Finish him! Fatality!.... Osgood with the takedown"

The thing that makes Edwards even worse than he already is, is the fact that he replaced Dale Arnold.

Think Doc Emmerick with less catch phrases.

The guy did an amazing job calling the game, after the whole NHL leaving ESPN fiasco the B's decided to grab Edwards from the ESPN ranks and get rid of Arnold.

I guess the wanted more emotion less intelligence in the booth. I do think Brick does a real good job as the color guy though!

Apparently they have a thing for announcers with First names for Last names!

Meh, I actually kind of like him. He has a few facepalm worthy moments, but for the most part he calls the game pretty fairly and gets just as excited when the opposing team scores as when the Bruins do.
