Episode #8 – A malfunctioning laptop and the rest of the 92/93 Senators Season!

This week’s episode begins with the warm familiar voice of Vancouver Canucks and Vancouver Giants public address announcer John Ashbridge with a public service announcement and warning regarding the Pucks on net podcast.

Sheila finally returns to the podcast after a brief hiatus and joins Ryan and Dave to discuss what’s going on in the world of hockey.

And the answer, frankly, is not much. A bit of a slow weekend this week, that was until the big Thomas Vanek and Matt Moulson trade happened a few hours after recording this episode, but none the less, we chat about the likeable Calgary Flames and the many things not to like about the Buffalo Sabres.

Afterwards, we chat about one of the worst teams in NHL history, the 1992/93 expansion Ottawa Senators. They won a measly 10 games that year. They assembled a lunch buck journeyman team and purposely lost in order to draft high the following year.

The gang also chats about bad halloween costumes, HBO’s Girls and Ryan’s recent trip to Moose Jaw.

All this and more on a very special episode of Pucks on net.

Episode #7 – Which NHL Draft bust gets a first date with Geeta?

The gang is back for a Sunday afternoon edition of Pucks on net! Dave, Geeta and Ryan get together to talk about what was a big week for goaltenders. Mike Smith scoring an empty net goal, Marty Biron retiring and all the happenings in the NHL early in the season.

We also chat about our favourite NHL Entry Draft busts but before we can discuss the likes of Alex Daigle and Pavel Brendl or Pat Falloon, Geeta shares with us a tale of a first date she had on Friday night and tells of the worst (and equally hilarious) first date anyone may ever have!

We even revisit the Queen’s 2001 visit to Vancouver and Owen Nolan’s desire not to shake her hand!

A really fun conversation this week, we get together on a foggy Vancouver day with the Canucks and Bluejackets game on in the background. Unfortunately Sheila is once again not with us this week, but we hope to have her back soon!

Episode #6 – Mighty Ducks on net

The gang decides to have the first Pucks on net at the movies episode this week!  After the very exciting first week of NHL regular season action, Ryan and Dave decide to kick their feet up and watch a classic, The Mighty Ducks! Sheila was once again missing this week, disappearing mere minutes before we began to record. Look for her face on milk cartons in your local grocer tomorrow!

We watched most of the movie, this week’s episode features all the highlights!

Episode #5 – Six Degrees of Ed Belfour

The first week of the NHL Season was too much for us too handle here at Pucks on net, thus the slight delay in recording this episode.

Sheila is missing this week, so friend of the show Geeta joins Dave and Ryan to co-host the first Pucks on net of the 2013-14 NHL Regular Season.  We chat about the new mandate to make Sidney Crosby a regular Joe six pack and chat about new friend of the show, Alex Auld.

We discuss Rick Nash’s six degrees of separation with Ed Belfour and then dive into our discussion about the delicate psyche of the goaltender. We mostly just chat about our favourite crazy goalies of the past, The Mighty Ducks and the Geeta and Dave find the six degrees of seperation between Ed Belfour and Curt Schilling.  An exceptionally fun and lose conversation this week with more Willa Ford than the average person can handle!
