    Penguins Announcers.

     Saw the game on NHL Network with the  Pens announcer Paul Steigerwald. Worst I ever heard in any sport... Bruins needed to be knocked of their perch, trying to run the Pens out of the building, Lucic thinks he can go anywhere he wants and needs to be brought down to reality, Thornton came up high on Rupp when Rupp came up high on him and the topper they love Matt Cook. Call the Savard hit, The Savard Incident. Everybody complains about Jack Edwards being a homer. Versus and NHL Network never pick up Nesn's feed. But they  make us listen to these clowns especially after his comments during the Islander game. Where's Mike Lange , at least he 's colorful.

    The Pens announcers are bad.  Its like they never watched a hockey game before.  I understand being a homer. But those clowns go beyond.  They actually sound like a lot of double standard posters on here.

    Lucic's hit was clean.

    Re: Penguins Announcers.

    Actually as someone who watches the Pens on TV several times per week, Steggy is one of the better announcers in the league. Bob Errey, a former Penguin, is the real homer. I've watched Steigerwald disagree with Errey a few times just this season, and he tells like like it really is. Obviously, he's biased toward the Pens but his knowledge of the game and league supercedes any hard slant. I would much rather watch the Steigerwald and Errey than the clowns who call Flyer games.

    I understand being a homer, but last night's game was unwatchable.  Those 2 guys sounded like 2 idiots drinking beer in section 308... the guys you just want to turn around and ask, "have you ever actually SEEN a game before?'

    terrible.

    I watched the game where Cooke drilled Tutin from behind and got the suspension.  Those boneheads were blaming Tutin.  Again, Buffalo announcer is totally biased and I can live with that b/c he is exciting to listen to.  The Pitt guys are brutal

    Nothing more annoying than when Crosby and Malkin are playing. He refers to them as 'the two headed monster' a million times a game.

    Rick Jeanneret exciting to listen to? In another place and time he could have been the ultimate Wochenschau announcer. He's taking "bias" to another level.

    The decisions come from NHL, so write to Bettman and you will hear more garbage.

    VS and NHL Network never pick up NESN's feed because Jack Edwards is just as much of a homer as the 2 guys in Pittsburgh.

    I didn't watch it on NHL network (even if it was free ).  I got a stream from Veetle and watched NESN with about a 30-45 second delay.
    Forget that those guys are homers but they are just plain boring !!!  Even if I was a Pen's fan I'de feel the same.

    One  more thing ,  call Edwards a homer all you want but when the Pens scored their goals he was just as loud as when the Bruins scored.  Unlike some of the other guys (cough cough Rick Jeanneret). 
    Maybe I'm bias but I don't think Edwards calls the game like a homer and what rubs listeners the wrond way are some of his off topic comments instead of reading the play during the game.

    Agreed Legion! The other night in the T-Bay game he was screaming Smith's name just as loud as Thomas's!

    Re: Penguins Announcers.

    It was really bad last night.  I was yelling at the TV for them to stop crying about the B's trying to hit them.  Stegi talks like the B's shouldn't be allowed to try to hit more than the Pens.  The Lucic comments several times were outrageos.  I thought he might actually cry everytime a Bruin laid a hit.  I really don't have a big problem with homerism but there is a line that they cross.  Calling them bullies is just a joke. 

    On the other hand though, I wonder how opposition fans feel about Edwards while watching the NESN feeds.

    Yep I agree with all of you. The pens announcers were terrible. Bunch of cry babies, making the game sound terrible. I really was having trouble listening to their crap. Just terrible.

    Re: Penguins Announcers.

    Steigerwald, homer or not, has a great voice and i enjoyed his call of the game. Problem with Edwards is that he often comes up as the schtick guy he was when as a ESPN announcer, and while I think he is doing better than previous years, he drives me insane with his ridiculous comments which drive Brickley nuts too. I've had a problem with a lot of NHL announcers in that they don't call the game. They seem to want to converse the whole game with the analyst instead of sticking to the game and letting analyst do his job. Steigerwald again has a traditional, old-school hockey voice. Hard to find out there. I'd rather listen to him on a nightly basis than Edwards. It's all about the delivery, the voice and the game-call.
