Kelly doesn't improvise at all, or at least he doesn't seem like it. He just seems like he's reading off a teleprompter 99% of the time. He's boring as hell.
Anyway, what's the story with Ken Wilson? I heard FSN was going to renew his contract but the Blues organization said no? What's the story with him and why wouldn't the Blues want him back?
Here we go again...
Wilson got lazy and arrogant by refusing to do prep work or talk to the players.
My contact says he was asked to talk to the players before the games, after practice, etc (which most play-by-play guys do so they have info to talk about on the air), but he refused.
Wilson wouldn't even do his homework on the visiting club. He would show up 30 minutes before he was to go on the air and his prep work included looking over the rosters right before going on the air...and his lack of preparation showed. His commentary that wasn't actual play-by-play became stale and boring, and for some reason he and Federko would go off on weird tangents on various stories not even related to the game while play was going on. It was odd.
Wilson used to be great...but he turned into a big prick.
Some here still want him back, but I think they are remembering the old Wilson. I say Wilson can go F himself. There is a reason he didn't hook up with another NHL team.
