    HAHA, Sam Rosen......

    Calling the preseason Dolphins Bear game and he just gave the score with the New York Rangers winning and then realized what he just said and excused himself. He's becoming senile

    Been that way for years.

    Brad Cullen. Never being able to tell Prucha from Drury. Always rambling like an old man and missing goals ("...and that one went in!").

    Great announcer but his time is up, time to bring in Kenny Albert. And for the love of God, do not put LaGreca on the radio, he is brutal with play by play.

    Guy's a legend. He'll go out when he's ready.

    Guess no one was watching the SCF when the God of PxP Doc Emerick was continually confusing Kane with Tervainnen and Toews with Kruger, Callahan with Brown, etc...

    It happens to all of them. The Kane/Teräväinen thing I get majorly confused with too. They have such similar builds.

    What drives me nuts with Sam is more the lazier calling style now because he's bullshitting about things that have nothing to do with the game.

    You nailed it, and that's what annoys me the most about him. Even during this preseason football game, he calls an important tackle and doesn't even call out the tacklers name, he just goes on to tell an unrelated story. Hey Sam, it's preseason, call out the players names, we're trying to follow who's who between all these 2nd stringers and scrubs.

    Sam is a great guy. He and my dad did charity work together a while back and I got to go up to the booth during games to see him before the MSG remodel. I do believe it's his time as well, but he's been their voice so long that he's in control of when he leaves.

    Oh god, that's the worst. The baseball banter. The worst part is, much as I like him, it's usually Joe who starts it too.

    +1 on no LaGreca on the radio. guy sounds high pitched and a minute away from having a coronary.

    Move Kenny to T.V. and bring back Howie Rose.

    LaGreca makes a dump in for a line change sound like a great scoring chance.

    LaGreca follows action well, but I just don't like his voice. He sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he's calling games. It's weird. It's like inflection stuff, where he's going to call some sequence and half the words in the sentence just come out as like "HURRRHRRHRRH".

    "Callahan swings it around the boards to Palat and it's picked off HURRRHRRHRRHKreider! He shoots he scoresHURRRHRRHRRH!"

    As someone from afar, I have to say that Rosen is simply one of the best, and most iconic callers in the game today.

    Whenever I watch a NYR broadcast without him, it just doesn't have the same impact.

    Rosen could forget which two teams are playing, not get a single player right, and forget what sport he's announcing, and I'd still enjoy listening to him.
