Wild keep broadcasters

New, comment

The Minnesota Wild has yet to sign Brian Rolston to a contract, but they have signed their broadcasters!

The Minnesota Wild decided to keep their TV and radio personalities in tact for the 2008-09 season. I guess I am not that surprised and I personally don't have any complaints about the announcers (but there are plenty of Minnesota WIld fans that do - share your terrible announcer storeis - here!). I like to hear what Mike Greenlay has to say about the teams dynamics. He mostly comments about the Minnesota Wild defense and I think that has to do with his experience as a former goaltender, but it works since Jacques Lemaire plays such a defense focused style of hockey. I also enjoy Greenlay's comments about the Anaheim Ducks. Like a lot of Minnesota Wild fans, I feel an intense rivalry with the Ducks and despite the fact that Greenlay was the radio analyst for Anaheim for a couple of years, I get the feeling he loathes the Anaheim Mighty Ducks team as much as I do.

Dan Terhaar will return to the television play-by-play spot for the Minnesota Wild and Bob Kurtz and Tom Reid (Tom Reid's Hockey Pub is a must see for any hockey fan, but it gets crazy on game days - be prepared to wait!) will return the WCCO 830 AM airwaves. All of these guys are Minnesota Wild regulars and are a cornerstone part of this hockey Wilderness!
