Today for Youtube Madness, I give you The Best of "Mic'd Up"
First, Jordan Staal and Ryan Getzlaf at the Young Stars Game from last yerar. Hands down, my favorite part of this is JStaal yelling "Eeeeey, Geno, nice hit!" and Getzy's 'big hit'

Not so sure of the context of this next one, but it's an AHL game that pits Canada against "Planet USA" and gives you a semi-disgruntled Jason Spezza who's NOT getting the Lady Byng this year.
I assume this is pretty standard to what you hear on the ice... it sounds an awful lot like what we're saying and or yelling at each other during derby bouts:
Old school Oliers (Smythe AND Pronger):
Matt Cooke's righteous indignation.."Hey! You're allowed to use the whistle!"
Marty Biron proves that hecklers aren't just in the stands:
Why Corey Perry isn't an agitator:
This, this is one of my hands down favorite mic'd up moments ever. They put a mic AND a pickup on Turco for the All Star game in Dallas, so he was actually talking to the announcers through his half of the game:
I did really look for a Sidney Crosby mic'd, but if his general vocal demeanor on my end of the Philly rink is any indication, there's a reason they don't bother to try him. They'd be editing and beeping more than they'd be broadcasting anything.
