Re: 2020 NHL Offseason Thread

I love Emrick.

Another reason I'm happy I don't hang out on Twitter, where I assume he receives criticism? Katie Nolan drafted him as one of her all time favorite voices on All Fantasy Everything recently. Not sure I'd put him in Vin Scully range, but I love listening to him call a game.
