    Like or hate him or whatever Harris was a nice contrast to the likes of the supposedly semi-retired Green and Windbag Madeley.

    Lowell Green is an idiot ... and a bully ... I do like him more than JJ but not much ... Smile Let's just say that Lowell Green is the Don Cherry of the Ottawa Valley; minus the smarts and the good looks ... Smile and the fact that he feels free to comment on ANYTHING ... whether he knows anything about the topic at hand. At least Cherry knows enough to (normally) keep his ignorant, biaised rants about hockey (which is something he knows ... at least ... a little about)....

    Melanson sounds like a weak-voiced school kid playing radio host. Versage has tenure and probably works for free.

    JJ getting let go isn't a surprise. He was likely overpaid for the amount he actually contributed. Phil getting let go is a bit of a surprise, given that he actually seemed to do a lot of preparation and research for his show.

    They should can Jason York. That guy doesn't need the cash, and doesn't do squat to get prepared for Healthy Scratches. Seriously. They always joke about how he shows up right at 3 when the show starts. He'll often say stuff like "Didn't something like this happen the other night in that game with that guy" and then Lloyd will have to fill in all the details. All York does is go on about how Lloyd wears sweats and whatever, and it's gotten real OLD.

    Shean Donovan actually does prep-work when he is filling in for York, the should give him a shot. Or anyone else. York does a decent job on TV, I'll give him that, but his radio work is not up to snuff.

    I'm really impressed with Todd White. Very opinionated and insightful.

    Yeah, Todd White isn't bad either. Him or Donovan would be an improvement over York. I get that being unprepared is part of York's "schtick", but that was also part of JJ's schtick, and he got canned. York will contribute his opinion, but it's often just generic BS. Any idiot can ramble on and on, but you'd think he'd back up his opinions with stats, or at least come up with interesting ideas that would generate debate. Lloyd carries that show.

    Lloyd is a pro but he still annoys me. He's like a mouthpiece for the Senators more than anything. He kind of laughs as he's talking like "I feel a little silly for having to say this but Bryan Murray said..." My favourite, of course, was when the Canes were facing the Devils and he was making a prediction "Devils. At home. Game 7. Marty Brodeur. Nuff said." And the Canes won, of course.

    Well, that was, by no means, an easy radio show to do today. Need beer.

    Never fun when your friends get canned.

    Yeah, he mentioned that a buddy of his (besides Jerome) was also canned. And that they would be drinking together over the weekend.
