I watched that this morning. I drew two conclusions: (1) you're right, his shot really is amazing; (2) (YOU ALL WILL HATE ME FOR THIS) RJ has kind of become a caricature of himself. He still describes games really, really well. Probably the best in the business. But it's become over the top when the Sabs score.


I don't even think he calls the games well, to be honest. He's too often falling behind the play and flubbing the names.

My goodness, WHAT WHAT WHAT? These are very bold statements. I leave for an ARMS session on switch, come back to an RJ bashing. Keep it up and I'm changing my profile pic to RJ in his defense.

Seriously guys, my eyes are rolling; as in top shelf where momma hides the cookies. Love RJ!

Take RJ away from these games last year and I have absolutely zero reason to watch

One of the greatest tragedies of this or any generation is that RJs twilight years have been pissed away on the tank years.

I watched the fewest amount of games last year in the last 20 years.

I was more invested in the tank year than last and THAT is the sad part.

A nice reminder of just how elite Jack's shot is: the best of the best.

I was just watching that video after visiting this thread yesterday. I still cant get over the OT winner from Kane against Carolina.

That was an awesome goal. My favorite is also one I'm fuzzy about. Hoping for some better minds to fill the gaps.

 

Jack took a pass in the offensive zone a the top of the face off circle. He quickly glided to his left (I think) fired a shot on goal and finding the upper corner. 

 

But what made that ply remarkable is from a rear angle, the shot curved from right to left before finding the back of the net. It looked like it curved a good foot. He actually shot a curve ball with a hockey puck.

 

The goalie was just stunned it went on.

I was at that game with my brother, and during the next media break, he found a replay of it on Twitter. We're sitting in the stands freaking out about what we were seeing, and we can hear the people around us are mumbling that "we'd enjoy the game more if we got our faces out of our gadgets." Boy, were they wrong.

Can't say fairer than that. I think winning hockey will lead to an improvement. At least I hope.

I still love him.

The upward trend starts this season.

That was an amazing goal. I think that was in his rookie season, correct?

I can only hope Dunleavy is not RJ replacement. He is bad.

Dunleavy is atrocious. If you listen on the radio you have no idea what is going on.

That's going to be a problem.  The RJ simulcast works because he was radio first.

They're going to have to go to separate broadcast crews when RJ does finally hang 'em up. A radio pbp nessecarily needs to be more descriptive than TV pbp. Like you said, the simulcast only worked because RJ had been the radio announcer first.
