    I see Janecke and Garcia and Newkirk spent time at NAHA and in comes another NAHA player. Also PSU is getting another Shattuck player (it's been awhile).

    Besides Syracuse having half the team if not more in the portal, Maine and surprisingly St Lawrence have also had a number of players enter the portal. Even Mercyhurst has a couple now.

    PSU has zero in the portal.

    That's two out of three Rookies of the Year. I'm sure prospective transfers are looking at the stats that Mackay and Correia put up and hopefully want in.

    Kampersal is up for National Coach of the year. Hopefully, that helps PSU in the recruiting game.

    Great season by Penn State. I'm sure they will be back in the NCAAs soon.
    I don't care if it's a streaming game or a broadcast game, if these people want to be broadcasters, then just do your due diligence. Spend 10 minutes before the game and look at the players' names and pronunciations. It's all in the players guides and that would be acting like you are a professional at the very least.

    Very true...the Big10 announcers that did Penn State games this year were not good. The BC announcers that called the BC Penn State games knew more about the Penn State players, statistics, and history. It was obvious that they had spent some time doing research before the games, and also obvious they actually knew the sport well.

I think what bothered me even more than all the mispronunciations were the over-exaggerated calls where he switched to a voice like he was introducing a prize fighter before a bout.

    You are right on Maloney being pronounced Malooney which is a rather common Irish name. I had to check the roster to see the spelling.

    And that is fine if that's the game that they're presented. There are games where they don't call anything because there simply isn't anything to call. That's not what I saw last night. If after two periods at Ridder last night it had been 2 majors + 2 minors on Clarkson versus 2 minors on UMD, IMO, that's in the neighborhood of what the play deserved.
    I have two different takes on this. The first is my ideal universe, in which I agree with you. I prefer a more tightly called called game. I think interference is grossly undercalled. I prefer hockey that is de facto no-check, rather than merely de jure. This side of me also thinks that there should have been more penalties called, though I think calling at that standard would have led to more Clarkson penalties, too.

    The part of me that has to compromise with the real world thinks that the officiating wasn't perfect, it was pretty balanced. None of the infractions committed by UMD in the first two periods rose to the level of the things Clarkson was called for. Given where the line is being drawn, I didn't think that UMD did anything in that span that was clearly a penalty by these standards.

    Yes on Whoop 87's observation. Eastwood from Syracuse should have been the guest announcer, her knowledge and insights add something to any broadcast. It really helps when the announcers actually either have the work ethic to do the research or have the requisite familiarity. It was evident that the announcers were not familiar with either team and women's hockey in my opinion. My favorite announcer is the guy from BU.

    I don't think I've ever heard a name ("Quinnipiac") pronounced so many different ways from the same two announcers over the course of a hockey game. Good lord, they were stumped.
