I bet Bernie would like to have that one back.

This organization doesn't have a clue when it comes to broadcasting personnel.

I would rather listen to Chaser than Scott Hamilton (the gnome version).

It's not like Chase was allowed to leave or anything. He's still on the broadcast, just on the radio side. I don't mind Pang. He's got his downfalls, but let's face it...can anyone be worse than Bernie? All anyone did around here was complain each time Bernie said something stupid. Now that his role is reduced, it should be a unanimous cheer across the board. Being a bit sarcastic about that, but still...my point is that the team could do a lot worse than Panger.

My guess is that the blues brass knew they needed to get rid of Federko, but needed someone with national name recognition to justify it and keep hurt feelings to a minimum.

Pang replaces Bernie and the story can be, "Well, we HAD to take a shot when a guy like Pang is available--someone with national recognition that will add even more name recognition and credibility to our broacasts."

Chase replaces Bernie and the story is basically, "Bernie--we're sorry, but you just aren't very good at color. You are painful to listen to."

In two years, when Pang carpet bags somewhere else, we can get Chase or someone in the booth.

Well I guess we won't be hearing this phrase next season..."There are too many Johnson's out there on the ice." :cry: or any other gay comment like that.

I just hope he can stop rambling over the play by play like he's tended to do in the past. Plus I no longer need to hear about his good buddy "Stevie Y" every time Detroit is mentioned.

(Frank) Darren 'asshole' Pang. He's Hawk shit and a horrible broadcaster.

Give me Kenny and Chaser.

Looks like I'll be using the 'mute' button in 09-10.

Panger will be fine. I kinda like the idea of Bernie being at Ice-Level...he'll have "fill in" spots and won't be the color guy. Let's see how they do!

Sorry to interrupt, but Darren Pang is an annoying piece of crap. A very small piece of excrement.

Might as well just bring Gary Thorne into the booth.


:plusplus: :plusplus:

Darren Pang is at the bottom of the barrel with Keith Jones IMO. Are you ready to hear stories starting with "When I was an NHL goaltender..." every night Blues fans?

The guy is lame and steals the mic from the play-by-play announcer. While I would like to hear less from Kelly, he should be able to talk more than the color commentator.


I like Panger's enthusiasm and first hand experience from playing in the NHL. Federko has the enthusiasm and the experience, but it never really translated into good color commentary. Panger is a very good color guy and a HUGE improvement over Federko, period.

Federko was a great player and is passionate about the Blues, which is awesome, he just needs to do something else within the organization...maybe being at ice level and at the desk inbetween periods is a better fit for him. I think that will work for him...maybe.

Can someone please tell me what was wrong with Federko? I was under the impression he was an awesome commentator!

You should be able to cash in when you sue the owner of the horse that kicked you in the head. If there is any doubt as to your damages, just print out this post.

Other than the fact he is a homer and the Blues do no wrong? His constant "I don't know.." and blabber makes it easy for me to watch the game without sound.

Nice insults at all, but no examples were given as to why Bernie is a bad commentator. I've never noticed anything! I've been watching Blues games since Bernie's first year, and not once did he stick out to me as totally sucking. This thread is a surprise to me. What did Bernie do that good commentators don't? How exactly did he suck?
