Teamed with Brett Hull?

Without Ron McLean there, there isn't a hope of getting more than one thought out of the old guy over the course of a five minute intermission.

"Kids, this is why you don't go through the neutral zone with your head down. Do we have a clip? No? Okay- wait, here we go. Okay, so here we see..."

How will he ever get his shout-out to the troops in without Ron managing the clock?

Great! Some old crankbox in a bad suit telling me why fighting is the finest aspect of the game and berating me and my countrymen for demonstrating inadequate knowledge and support of the sport!

Can't wait. I hope they make him cover a Thrashers home game and he melts.

That's what's going to make it so awesome. Though with Brett as his sidekick, it could be worse, Bill Clement or Eddie Olczyk could be riding shotgun... *shivers*

I may disagree with a lot of what Cherry says, but I think the NHL on NBC really needs that kind of voice. Great tone, loud, obnoxious somewhat incoherent. Though I wonder how he will adapt to an American audience. He can't say that such a player is a "good Kingston boy" because most people who be watching watching would be thinking the players is from Jamaica.... and don't get me started on Moose Jaw :P

My problem with Brett Hull is that his tone of voice is not the kind that gets my attention. Bobby Hull, yes, not Brett. Once Jeremy Roenick retires, he would be a perfect fit with his sense of humour.

Cherry on NBC = Cherry Censored = Not Don Cherry

I think Cherry will be Cherry, and he won't last more than two weeks on NBC, and that's being optimistic. He'll scare the stiffs.

Even so, Don is flippin awesome, and i can't wait to watch...

I think this is only supposed to be a 1 or 2 time appearance during the Cup Final.

They really need Ray Ferraro in there to tell Grapes what a dottering old fool he really is.

This thread just needs a picture.
