  • Best hockey commentator quotes!

    I just heard one about Tim Thomas during the Sens/Bruins game.

    Quote " Thomas may look like Bambi on ice sometimes, but he manages to get there to make the save" End quote

    The perfect analogy for him

        From way back in the day.

        "And he beat him like a rented goalie"

          Oh, and I did like this one from Doug MacCloed (sp?) after a big hit, or frantic goalmouth melee:

          Get your children and small pets away from the TV, 'cause the NHL is in your living room!

            I thought it was pretty epic when Calgary won a game in the playoffs a couple a years back and the radio guy just said "FLAMES WIN!!! YEAAAHHHHH BABBBYYYY!!!"

              'Jim, I was just in the Canucks dressing room, and I can tell you that Pavel's groin has never felt better."

                Despite the fact that alot of non Leaf Fans (and even some Leaf fans) hate the Joe Bowen (Mr. "Holy Mackinaw") and Harry (Neal?) commentary during Leaf games I must say they come up with a new description for the goalies when introducting the starters that is pretty cool.

                Usually it's something that has some zing to it and of course I'm drawing a blank right now but not often something you've heard used to describe goalies before.

                I personally like the appropriately placed "HOLY MACKINAW" but Bowen has become too predictably in the past 2 or 3 seasons, pulling it out on every nice goal or save. I liked it better when he only threw one or two out there per game.

                    Another of Shorty's good quotes:

                    "Pavel Bure plays with such speed that his linemates can't keep up to him. If only he could play with himself out there, that would really give the fans a show."

                    "Kirk McLean is so fundamentally sound. Look at how erect he is in the net."

                    "There's Sather, with that grin on his face, relaxing behind the bench, hands in his pockets, enjoying himself."

                              In Philly we've got Jim Jackson who doesn't have any catchphrases but by the tone of his voice you always know when something is about to happen.
