He's brutal at anything he ever has done. Not sure why NHL Network ever bought him from ESPN. As great as the tournament was, and i can proudly say I watched every USA game live, it would of been better if they had put ANYONE else there.

That was my first long-term exposure to him...i usually see him at draft time and hadn't developed an opinion, but man watching that semi final i felt like kicking his ass every time he opened his mouth...
By the way props for watching the home team live every time!!

Should have had Brian Duff. Hraden sounded like Collinsworth. .

I love EJ Hradek. Probably stems from 3-4 years ago when I used to watch NHL Live w/ him and Don LaGreca every week day -- I hated him at first, but he grew on me a lot during the year or two I watched their show. He's not any better or worse than other hockey media personalities out there. He actually offers up pretty honest opinions on a lot of things, I didn't sense all that much homerism from him in the tournament but perhaps that's just my own homerism agreeing with his. :P

Hradek was awful. I've never been too fond of him but this tourney just irritated the hell outta me.
