When words fail
"When words fail" by Scott Feschuk
YES! I couldn't agree more! When I was watching the Montreal-Boston game on the French channel, I saw the elbow by Kyle McLaren as it happened without any commentary. Just the sound of the crowd gasping as Zednik went down. Down with hockey announcers! Well, except for analysis in between plays (not just between periods as Feschuk suggests). There are times when former hockey-players analyze a play or compare set plays to those of previous nights. But yeah. Just have the sounds of the game, as if we were actually there.
