Mick doesn't travel because his diet requires gluten free food.  At least that's what he said last year.  He talked about it a lot.

 

Edit: Would anyone like to see Drapes give it a shot?  He seems more personable than Ozzie.

I'd have to think that Draper wasn't interested in the job, because I can't see how Ozzie would have been hired over him.  He's much more conversational and is much more comfortable in front of the camera than Ozzie is.

 

 

Homer.

Homer has a good sense of humor and is a big goofball, but that robotic sounding voice would drive me bats*** if I had to listen to it for any length of time. 

 

Love Ozzie but he sounds like he needs to catch his breath after 2 or 3 sentences

 

Yes, this.  I couldn't put my finger on it, but it does sound like that and it's distracting and irritating to listen to.

Draper would have been great!  He's always made me laugh, he's very clever and comfortable with the media.  So was Ozzie, though, when he played.  I have wondered what his issues are with the on-air situation, but then again - he's a goalie.  By definition, they're all odd - perhaps Ozzie less so than most?   They all seem to be different people on the ice hiding behind their masks and clad in hockey armour.  Maybe that's it.  Put a helmet on him.   ;)

 

I am a raving Mickey-Maniac, so I am not truly happy unless I hear his voice on the broadcast.  But I can see how he is relieved to not be traveling as much, perhaps.  I am really happy I met him last year when the Wings were in Nashville.   

 

Aside from meeting Z, Lids, and Dom (years ago), getting to meet Mickey might have been my favorite meet-the-Red-Wing moment.  :wub:
