NESN Hockey broadcasters do a great job! Those NY jokers are awful! We have Sophia as an “on ice” voice and she is the greatest!

Get Barzel : a dream. He is what the Bruins need!


Jack is a homer for sure. But. Nyr Ny I. Panthers caps are brutal. Not sure of west coast teams and don’t see much games. All the Canada teams have good broadcast teams. And Espn and tnt are horrible. Jack keep doing what you do

Brick is one of the best. Jack can hold his own.

Rick W Murray

Jack for money is one of the best in the business Brick is brilliant analyst you want homerscheck out Dan and Mickey Redmond Red wings broadcast duo, Dan a good broadcaster but is one of the worst homers in the nhl and Redmond is even worse. I can’t listen to those two for more 30 seconds, I’ll just turn the channel.


100% correct. Watched Wings vs. Toronto, and shut the volume off it was so ooo bad!


I rarely comment
Yes Edwards is awful.
Love Brick

Sometimes Jack can be a little excessive, over the top, or maybe say something slightly distasteful that I don’t like or completely agree with… But he’s ours damn it. A while back a player got hit and went down and he went off about him diving or whatever, and he was legitimately hurt. That just reflects poorly, and of course everyone played what he said after and were like wow, what a jerk… He can be strongly opinionated and sometimes Brick has to reel him in, but that’s why they’re so good together. I want someone to call out bad… Read more »

Agree 100%, very well said!!


Haha I had to check to see who wrote this. Thought maybe I did and forgot. Well said.


That poll is wrong, they have them ranked too high!


Jack and Brick are outstanding. Frankly, who cares what non Bruin fans have to say.

Joe Phillips

I can’t listen to Edward’s. I mute the TV and listen to Judd and Beersy.


A poll by The Athletic? What’s that?

Bruins fans love watching a Bruins game broadcast by Bruins fans. And Jack and Brick are definitely fans. They’re also very knowledgeable. Yes Jack Edwards is passionate. But so am i. I’m pretty sure I’ve had to replace a TV or two. Pucked them up.

I love Jack and Brick. They work well together. They know the players and they keep me laughing. I can think of some bad announcers and they are far from it.


Brick knows his shit. No-one can replace the energy that Jack brings. I know he has a lot of haters but f-off. We love Jack.
