If you think Salisbury "takes himself seriously," you clearly haven't seen his "Breakdown" segments on "Cheap Seats."

Not familiar with "Cheap Seats"? Do yourself a favor and find it.

Pierre McGuire seems to comment on the one piece sticks a bit too much. It's now a part of the game and almost everyone is using one....let it go!

I really like Don Cherry. I think he's priceless.

Bob Cole is terrible and not just because he's a Leaf's homer. He calls plays that everyone else watching didn't see then uses excusues to cover up like 'the ref had his hand up but maybe he was picking his nose'. He usually gets the non-leaf players names wrong and is notorious for using phrases like 'the goalie' or refers to players only by number because he has no clue. He adds nothing to a hockey game and in fact detracts from it. If I am forced to watch a game he is broadcasting I turn the sound off. He may have been good at one time but I think his stale date is marked 1988. Yank him CBC!!!!

I absolutely agree with most of those choices, specifically Cole and Cherry. Cole should have retired at least a decade ago, and taken Cherry and his insane, incoherent ramblings with him. A big thumbs down to the CBC for not even attempting to hire non-partisan on-air employees.

How old is Bob Cole? 97?

He can barely remember his own name let alone the players names. He used to be ok 30 years ago but now he is old, stupid, senile ....and of course, I didn't know he drank until one day I saw him sober.

How he finds his way to the rink and home again is a mystery

I loved the list..though I can't believe no one has mentioned John Garret (up there with Greg Millen)?! They both cheer againt all the western teams yet that's who they cover. Big props to Ray Ferraro and Kevin Quinn on Sportsnet...taking over from and excellent Graig Simpson.

Bob cole is brutal. Retire tomorrow or be fired!

Harry Neale used to be the very worst but now he's been replaced by that girly-man Greg millen who is a complete weaner. Leafs were losing 5-1 at the end of the 2nd period and that idiot has the nerve to say: " Bob, this game is very far from being over".

Yea right funny-face there 's one more period for the Leafs to suck. which they did of course.
