    Time for a Changing of the Guard?

    Ok, now that the team has initiated their "rebuild", how about a little change in the broadcast booth?

    I think Sam Rosen has had his chance but to tell you quite frankly boys and girls, I think the time has come to get a new "Voice of the Rangers". I'm just curious to see if I'm the only one trying filter out his "Play by Play". Sam was once very good, but I think it's high time to give someone else a try up there.

    I've heard John Gianone, and I think he's pretty capable. His goal calls are pretty decent and he's only about a half second behind the play call...which is leaps better than what we're getting now. I don't mind Micheletti, and I think he's actually holding the broadcast together right now. Who knows, maybe even another announcer...but I think they gotta do something up there!

    What do you think, fellas?

    Sam should have left years ago - but he's been doing better this season, compared to the last few.

    John G puts me to sleep.

    Maybe Kenny Albert. But gets annoying.

    Sam will retire when he's ready. Guy is a fucking legend.

    I'm just in a happy place when I hear their voice. I understand they're massive homers, I don't care.

    I cry when I hear the National team. They fucking suck.

    No doubt. And he should be given all the runway he wants to get there. Just like Rick Jeanneret, for example. But I am excited for a new leaf when we get there. My hope is Kenny and Dave. They're phenomenal on the radio or NBC broadcasts. Really work well off one another.

    No doubt the guy's was once one of the best. So was Messier...I agree with you 100% .....but there's a time when you gotta hang it up.

    ...and I think the time is nigh!

    That's actually a pretty good combo there. I've heard them do their thing, and Maloney is especially good with color commentary.

    Agreed...and a nice guy....I schmoozed with him a few months ago in a local Dunkin Donuts. Very nice guy, I think he is the same today as 1994 when we won the Cup.

    I hated when JD left, but John M. grows on you. They're a solid team. I listen to other team's broadcasters on Siriux XM -- try it, you won't believe the crap that passes for passionate announcers in other cities.

    Aren't they doing the radio sometimes ? When Don LeGreca isn't ?

    And I like Don, despite the Devils pedigree.

    He and Kenny together just work so well given how long they've been together on radio.

    Agreed Phil. I'd love to hear a new voice up in the booth. Sam's losing it in my eyes and I don't enjoy watching his legacy go to pieces. His play calling has been off and we're lucky when he gets the players' names right these days. Even the goal calls have been off.

    "He shoots, and it hits the post...oh wait, it's in!"...

    I'm not saying the guy's a bad guy, or that he hasn't had a legendary career. I just would like to see someone else get a chance to be the new guy up there.

    Wash your mouth.

    It's a POWER PLAY goal! A foreigner whose name I cannot pronounce but I'll take a swing at anyway takes a shot! A guy I have mixed up with someone else is on the puck! Although I can't see the puck, WHERE IS IT!

    Gotta love the old bastard.

    I couldn't stand LaGreca announcing games until he filled in a color guy last week, I thought he was great. He's terrible as the main guy

    "Off the post" - Sam Rosen

    Possibilities of what actually happened:
    Blocked in front, deflected out of play
    Goal (never hit the post)
    Glove save
