Patrick Marleau

Patty Marleau is clutch, and clutch is everything in life.

The TP/Campbell clip made it to #3 top favourite for sports, haha.

Did you know that Radek Dvorak is sekritly a Banana Republic model?


From Clutch defined: Drury, Heatley, Gionta, Marleau:
Marleau will do anything to win – set up plays, score timely goals, win critical faceoffs and make big hits. The talented center has matured into the type of leader that his skill and ability destined him to become when he was named the Sharks’ first choice (2nd overall) in the 1997 Entry Draft. His prodigious power and soft hands make him one of the most dangerous players in the league and Marleau steps up when the Sharks need him the most – in the clutch. San Jose’s leading scorer has already surpassed his total game-winning goal output (nine) of the entire 2005-06 season (four).

“He is very strong in the clutch,” says San Jose GM Doug Wilson. “People don’t realize that the last (three) years Patty had (much) better playoff numbers than Vincent Lecavalier (Marleau – 23 goals and 37 points in 40 games; Lecavalier – 13 goals and 26 points in 39 games). We look at our people performing the best when it matters the most and I truly believe that Patty should be considered one of the best in the league. He is in that top level now and I honestly think that he’s going to get to another level.”

I lurve Jim Hughson. I think he should be cloned and installed as every team's pbp guy. Well, he should replace the annoying ones, anyway. He can make games exciting without fucking screaming his head off inappropriately (like the Buffalo guy, the Coyotes guy and Emrick). I tolerate screaming (Randy does quite a bit of it) but only when it fits the play. It's not appropriate to scream when a guy shuffles a slow shot to a goalie, or like, makes it past the blueline.

He also (as far as I can tell) pronounces names correctly. It should be mandatory for guys to spend like a minute with the announcers of the other team and go through all the players' names once. There's usually only like 5 guys on a team who have questionable names, and you really only need to hear them correctly once to remember. Or you should if this is your line of work. It's irksome to go through a whole game listening to Horcroff, Schmidt (somewhat forgiveable), Stahl instead of Stole, and Poulioh. Randy is guilty of this kind of thing, and often confused Brad and Andy Ference. Also, some people are not aware that Vishnevski and Visnovsky are different people.

If the team that loses in a shootout gets #1 and #2 star, something is wrong. If someone on your team closes his hand on the puck in the last minute of the period and you scold the ref for calling the penalty instead of the guy for closing his hand on the puck, something is wrong.

I hate that stupid person who keeps posting that Emrick is the best announcer in the NHL. Making entire posts with some quote that's supposed to illustrate how witty and awesome he is when it's just lame, just like Emrick.

I think Marty McSorley has made me bitter. :(

I think the Sedin/Sedin combination keeps him on his toes (I know, they have numbers, but still!)

Jeeesus, the Buffalo guy is awful. I only watch the highlights, and Snet always end up playing the clips of the Buffalo announcer when Sabres scores since it's amusing... but it's like watching South American soccer games. Oh wait, this is hockey right? NOT SOCCER. You don't need to say GOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL every time they score D:

I cry when we get Bob Cole and whatever that other guy's name, oh Harry Neale for HNIC Canucks game. They need to retire. It's SEDIN not Sundin. And Sedins = two people. NOT ONE. D;

I think the Sedin twins should start a Wonder Twin Powers Activate! goal celebration.

Is Hughson the regular Canucks guy? I usually only hear him on HNIC.

He would be much better if he stopped screaming and saying cutesy things that are actually stupid. His observation/analysis type things are pretty okay, I think.

They still think they're calling Leafs games.

HAHAH that'd be awesome. Or they could just do the swedishtwins!dance thing from the commercial.

YEEES. I thank the hockey gods for that every game. I'm glad he's doing HNIC games too, and I get mad when they make him go on the East coast for games and leave us with Bob Cole for the Canucks game :x

I haven't seen any of the other games, other than him screaming a lot about the goals going in the net.

Seriously! Booo them.

I think it's probably best for everyone (including them) if they didn't dance...

Ahh, that's so nice. I think he's the perfect pbp guy by my criteria. :) He enhances the game and has a great sense of pace. Too many of these "popular" pbp guys make themselves into some kind of sideshow. Their screaming is totally not in harmony with the game.

He doesn't scream just when goals go in. :(

Jim hughson is awesome :D ahhh I love that line 90% of the games I watch he does, I think its why Im so bitter getting other teams feeds hahaha.

The Canadian guys are all pretty good, but I think Hughson is above and beyond. :) Ray Ferraro saying Duh-Wayne Roloson really upsets me but other than that, I can't think of any complaints about the Canadian guys.

It's really weird because it's not like the US guys are people from that city. They're almost all Canadian guys, yet they seem to be really ill-informed about the game, don't know players' names, are incredibly homerish to the point of irrationality, etc. I just don't get it.

yeah it's... like I cant even do bufallo without wanting to cut off my ears >.< moses.

Oh, Jim Hughson is the greatest.

There are some to whom I'm just resigned, like Cole and Neale, probably partially because I've associated hockey with those voices since I started watching hockey. I'm at peace with the senility. There are a few others I like -- Chris Cuthbert (if you can tune out the high-pitched voice when you need to, along with Glenn Healy, who is such a fucking waste of air). I think Gord Miller is pretty good too, unless I've been too busy muttering darkly at Pierre McGuire to notice that he sucks (which is possible).

I've always read that Jeanerette is one of the best guys, if not the best guy in hockey . . . I don't get it at all. He's so fucking SHRILL. Shrieking "enthusiasm" isn't what I'm looking for in my play-by-play.

LOL, senility is right. But they are able to follow the game, and in harmony with it.

Jeanerette is the Buffalo guy? See, I don't mind him and Emrick kind of sucking, but I get really mad when people say they are the best. It just really offends me, LOL!


I think because I know Vitali and Lubomir from so many games this bothers me the most.

Ralph says HalPREN all the time and I want to cut him for taking his oxycotin before the game.

*weeps* I think he actually calls... Briere? One of the Sabres "Cookie Monster" cos' he's always scoring top shelf. :(

I think it's funny when a guy combines them both into a super hard-hitting offensive powerhouse.

I know a good majority of the announcers need to spend time pronouncing the guys names right, it is your job?!

I like Atlanta but announcers are not really good=(

Even for the old and senile ones--not an excuse! Okay, maybe a little bit of an excuse.
