Pens TV announcer

The contract of Steigy is ending shortly. According to Mark Madden, Emrick (whose contract is also ending with the Devils) is being considered. I for one would like to have Mike Lange, by far the best announcer in hockey. Steigy reportedly would be given other duties. The only reason Lange was fired by FSN Pittsburgh was money. In the opinion of some on this site, Fox (Roots now) will never hire Lange again. I disagree with that, if there is a massive movement of fan support, they will. Remember, all of this is about ratings. Especially now that with NHL Center Ice, the games are available to a national audience. Lange (and for that matter Emrick), are far more recognizable and respected  names in hockey broadcasting. Errey does his job well, although at times falling into Steigy homerism. I would like to know what is the opinion of the fan base in this site. I don't quite know how to put those "vote" graphics, but feel free to post one in if you wish.

The content expressed in fanposts does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the staff here at Pensburgh.com. FanPosts are opinions expressed by fans of various teams throughout the league but may be more Pittsburgh-centric for obvious reasons.
