I think that there are a lot of problems with this team.. you can see it when they play...

1) Pat Quinn and his style of coaching - i thnk that a lot of the players don't really like him.

2) Not enough hitting!

3) The star players can't carry the entire team

4) Not being first to the puck

Bob Cole is the best broadcaster in hockey, period.

Spezza, Staal and Crosby should be playing, St. Louis is playing like shit and needs to go. Although I am a Leafs fan, McCabe sucks shit and shouldn't even be on the team. We definitely miss Niedermayer, and Tanguay would have been a nice addition. And I've been saying Quinn is a garbage coach, the only reason we won with him last time was that ANYONE could have won with that team. This time it will take more than just skill and talent. Could be a Russia/Finland final unfortunately.

Hell no, Joe Bowen owns!

I agree, McCabe doesn't look good, his skill isnt on par with the other players. The team definately wasn't taking the body enough.

at least he can call the play. Do you even listen to what Bob cole says? For instance, if Sundin fanned on a shot, and the puck bounced over to McCabe this is how both of them would announce it:

Bowen: "Sundin fans on the shot, the puck bounces over McCabe, and he picks up the loose puck... "

Cole: "Sundin takes the shot.. " pause ".. oh, what a great pass to McCabe, you know that Sundin, he's a great passer!!!"



Everyone knows this, Cole sucks. Bowen is 100X better than Cole any day. anyone who follows play closely knows this.

Bob Cole has a much better understanding of hockey and a better voice. True that he is losing his memory a bit as he ages and thus is a little slower sometimes. But Bowen sounds like a flamer, and laughs at his own jokes. And I've been watching hockey for the last 20 + years, so these comments come from an avid Canadian hockey fan.

I've only been watching hockey since 92-93, but from my standpoint, Cole has become really annoying. I don't know/remember how he was years ago, but I don't like how he calls the plays right now.

I also don't like his mid play commentary, he has the most stupid comments sometimes. I love Bowen's jokes. Him and Harry Neal are hillarious.

Cole may be a more experienced play by play analyst, but head to head, Bowen is better, he can call the play much better than Cole can. The understanding of hockey is much more suited to the commentator aspect, which Neal performs very well.

As for voice, when I hear Bowen's voice, I automatically associate it with hockey, his voice is unmistakable. To me that is, I dunno about the average person.

All in all, this is all my personal opinion, I don't like Cole, I find him annoying. I would love to see Bowen take over for HNIC, but I think he favours the leafs too much, and that wouldn't go to well with the other canadian teams, so I don't see that happening.
