The Red Wings “Shaking in Their Boots” and Other Thoughts on Game 4

  • Congrats to Daryl Reaugh, who achieved a new level of fame as an analyst this playoff season, covering two of the three premiere non-SCF series this season (PIT/WSH and PIT/CAR) and dropping a dose of Razor-y wisdom on everything he said.  And he made a moment stick, too.  Such as Maxime Talbot’s freak goal, when Razor noted: “O.M.G.”.  Razor provided an excellent dose of humor throughout the postseason, and actually knows how to drop a joke on the people.  Which brings us to…
  • The utter stupidity and epic fail-ness of the VERSUS studio show.  Not only do they try to make jokey references (and bad ones at that), but they say them as if they aren’t a joke!  Brian Engblom’s “Let the Geno out of the bottle” reference just sounded like he was reading off a cue card.  All three of these miscreants need to be terminated at the end of the season, cause I simply can’t stand to hear another word.
  • Usually, we won’t go after Bill Patrick, but he had a moment of fantastical stupidity during the postgame, when he uttered that whoever faces the Penguins in the Finals will be “shaking in their boots”.  Really, Bill?  The Stanley Cup Champion Red Wings shaking in their boots?  Please, good Lord, think before you ever say another word in your life.

    I totally agree about the Versus studio show but the real problem with Versus is the fact that they insist on using one of the WORST play by play guys in the form of Joe EXCLUSIVLY ON VERSUS Benihaha….

    I like the phrase epic-failness. Can you really call what they do a pre, post or intermission report. The only thing I do like about there show compared to NBC’s is they at least have a crew. Now if only they could get some good people on the crew. I know NBC has a crew but its 2 people and one of which talks during the entire game. Also any word yet on if its official if, i mean when, the Red Wings win tonight if the Finals begin Saturday? I know the Red Wings want to delay the start of the series cuz they are shaking in their boots so much to play the same team they beat a year ago.
