you have realize that all you redmond/murphy lovers are super homer fans. I mean you all frequent red wings message boards. I honestly could care less about their stupid 'back in my day' stories, the rediculous homerisms. The lack of objectivism, both LOVE fighting, the hatred of all penalties that meant to protect players (even when 10% of the NHL is injured). It'd be nice to have someone on the telecast with an opposite opinion, a little bit of devils advocate.
I never disliked either of them, but they are both not great broadcasters. FSD probably thought it would be better to keep one rambling former player, and then try to get someone more professional, someone with opposing opinions. Clearly redmond is the better of two.
I watch a lot of tsn, sportsnet and CBC. And all those telecasts blow what FSD throws out there.
So you think CBC/TSN/Sportsnet is better than FSD - that's just fine.
I watch FSD because I am a Detroit Red Wing homer, and proud of it.
