There’s nothing Leaf fans hate more than hearing Jim Hughson call a Leafs/Canucks game and here’s why.
Fans are convinced that Jim Hughson is biased when he calls Canucks games. The theory is that Jim is a Canucks fan and Leaf fans think he plays favorites when calling a game.
And yes, Leaf fans are the only fan base who whine about it to the point of Jim Hughson Trending for 10 hours after the Leafs were pumped by the Canucks last night, 6-3.

Was reminded of this great call by Jim Hughson from @JexuaI
Imagine getting half of this passion and excitement from him on a Leafs goal… pic.twitter.com/S38kZcKCYS

These are the comments Jim Hughson is apologizing for… Comparing Patrick Kane‘s alleged assault of a woman to Matthews… Kaine went on to win a cup… saying ”and that’s how you put a little problem behind you” pic.twitter.com/f12AnK49nj

I watched the game and didn’t notice a discernable difference in how Hughson calls a game and nor do I take the way he calls a hockey game personally or seriously because I’m not a complete moron. Who gives a shit if Jim Hughson is a Canucks fan? He’s never been an electric factory and Leaf fans have bigger shit to worry about than emotional equality from the other teams’ PXP guy.
Here’s something, Leaf Psychos: Jim Hughson has no influence on an NHL hockey game from the PXP booth.
Hughson wasn’t your problem last night, David Rittich was.
Canucks broadcast call of weak goal on David Rittich. The laughter couldn’t be contained. pic.twitter.com/29jcxyUuDT

Rittich sucked ass last night but because ‘Leaf Psychos’ always focus on dumb shit due to their victim mentality, it’s somehow Jim Hughson’s fault.
Of course, Joe Bowen is a better choice to call a Leaf Game. Of course, you like Chris Cuthbert over Jim Hughson. Chris is the second most Iconic PXP guy in NHL history next to Bob Cole and he called Sid’s Golden Goal.
But seriously, are we really going to take a steaming shit on Jim Hughson every time he calls a Leaf game from now until he retires? We’re a couple of weeks away from playoff hockey, the Leafs are 1st in the North Division, David Rittich shit himself and you’re dumping on the PXP guy for not being a Leaf fan?
No wonder the rest of Hockey Twitter hates our guts.
