It's a very bad look to have someone learning how to do play by play at the NHL level. When Ludwig was thrust into a color role because of cancer to whoever the guy who was here briefly, Ludwig was *fargin'* terrible, but that wasn't a surprise. He'd never done it and never trained for it. He was handed a headset and had to do his best.

Ludwig was also a regional guy on a mid-level market team. He also had a much better understanding of the game. He just sucked at being on TV.

Sure, but I'm just going with the analogy of someone being thrown on a broadcast with no experience and why it turns out bad. It wasn't Ludwig's fault. We've watched the NFL do this a couple of times like when they threw Jason Witten on MNF, and he got canned after a season because he was so bad.

Hextall did a few women's tournaments and then jumped right to the NHL. She sounds like someone whose play by play training was a dozen or so hockey games.

I thought Ludwig was actually pretty decent. We're just spoiled with 20+ years of Rasor, who is *fargin'* phenomenal.

I've never heard Hextall before but from the clip it sounds like she's trying to emulate Joe Buck, but without the enthusiasm.

I agree with this, especially when the guy with the puck is McDavid. The defender needs to attack him. Don't give McDavid what amounts to a breakaway.

Dude does the Jage salute, and butthurt hockey fans can't handle fun. Jagr has his thoughts.

The Senators are retiring Chris Neil’s number, and a guy had a funny line about. 20 years from now some young fan is going to see Neil’s number in the rafters, will search his name, will see Neil’s career numbers and will assume Neil must have died in some tragic accident while playing.

Flyers media and fans spent a decade overhyping Giroux, so it's pretty funny for Torts not to care about this.
