@JohnEWalters Sorry but I strongly disagree.  Emrick is forced to cater to a wider audience (including some uneducated fans) because he does national games, but he does a fantastic job of adding narrative and context to each game.  I would say that a typical, straightforward "x passes to y" broadcaster who occasionally shouts nonsense so as to make himself more entertaining than the game (*ahem* Jack Edwards) is for the uneducated fan.

I'm no expert but FWIW I've played hockey for most of my life and I work in sports media (so I watch an insane number of games) and there's nobody I'd rather listen to than Emrick.
