I simply found him repetitive over the last couple of seasons, and actually got pretty good at tuning him out completely. He was hardly as much of a homer as some guys I've heard. To me he just relied on the same old schtick too much, and became a bit of a caricature of himself in the end. Dropping all of the Chuckisms in Chicago is a good move on his part. They served a good purpose here to start with, but that purpose was no longer all that necessary.
My biggest concern is what happens on the FAN. Please no puckheads. No matter what anyone thinks of Chuck, at least he made it through the summer, and much of the winter for that matter, without resorting to wall-to-wall pucktalk. Without that kind of respite there, I don't think I'll be hitting that part of the dial much.
