Osgood is beyond boring. Completely monotone. I never liked Murph that much, but the difference between whats in the hand and the bush I guess.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I really liked Darren Elliott when he was in the booth with Daniels.  He's a lot more exciting to listen to than Ozzy.

Osgood is a terrible color guy. He needs to stay at the intermission desk. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

I have no issues with Ozzie really, but he just has a bit of a monotone voice. But it's his first year, I'm sure he'll improve. I was really bummed when I heard that they let Murph go, really enjoyed listening to him, especially the excitement surrounding dollar hot dog night! I had completely forgotten how excited he used to get over that!

It could be worse, he could have a hidden repetitious word that he uses in every sentence, including "like, um, ah, but" or "you know". 

 

He could be like reporting something and then like says something over and over that like he doesn't notice. Once you realize he's saying it like over and over you like can't unhear it. 

 

As he's new to the field stuff like this he'll receive constructive criticism about and he'll get a bit more comfortable over time. I can't imagine how difficult a job like that is.

 

Could make a solid drinking game of out if, drink every time Osgood says "very" during a broadcast.

I like how you like, used the word like in that sentence.  Here's one that's similar to 'like' you'll read all the time in player interviews, "kind of".  They always just 'kind of' do something, "I was skating hard towards the net and then I just kind of fell back after being knocked over".  No.  You either did or did not do that...no kind of.  Although not as bad as basketball with the 'you know what I'm sayings'.

Pretty much all hockey players have the same lines.  "We just have to play our game..."  Ozzie was far more eloquent and funny as a player because there was no pressure to be coherent in interviews.  Now he's on the hot seat to make cogent observations and be informative.  Much harder than it looks, no doubt.

 

Ozzie will be OK.  But he will never, ever be another Mickey Redmond. 

 

Nor will anyone else, to be fair.  ;)

I actually think he's been a lot better lately. Maybe he read some of our posts...

In the game against Toronto the other day, in the first break to him and Darren, when it came time for Chris to speak, he said very 5 times in the first 4 sentences, with two very, verys... I just stopped watching and walked away... very, very fast...

He seemed more relaxed and better tonight. Normally he is so idk what's the word. Maybe monotone. And has a deathly stare directly at camera and doesn't move his line of sight at all.

Whereas tonight he just seemed more relaxed and much better.

But before even with his negatives I like what he brings he is very intelligent and knows hockey.

I do wish we had a position players perspective though. All we got is goalies it seems and of course Mickey!

Unfortunately, Osgood is a very, very bad play by play guy. Last night vs Buff was the worst I could remember

He's a great commentator.  The problem is he has a lot of last-minute very's compared to other commentators, and don't get me started on his very bad-passes.  Probably bottom five in that stat for all commentators league-wide.
