Episode #18 – The Western League Special!

Ryan is flying solo this week on the show. Up in Kelowna covering the Rockets for the WHL on Shaw. With no Dave, Sheila or Geeta, we turn to the boys from the WHL on Shaw for our weekly chat. Host Andy Neal and producers Grant and Dave sit with Ryan in room 244 of the Ramada Inn to talk about the WHL, the powerhouse Kelowna Rockets, the problems facing smaller market clubs and talking about their earliest exposure with the league.

Above are the murals on display near the Kelowna Rockets’ locker room, which were talked about during the WHL roundtable segment of the show.

But before that, P Mac on the Street skypes with Ryan with some news and tips from Canucks land. The rise and fall of Vinny Prospal, Kellan Lain’s three big games with the big club and the injury and goal scoring problems that plague the team.

Episode #17 – Let’s Talk About Torts, Baby!

Sheila, Geeta and Ryan get together to talk about the biggest story in hockey this week: The Calgary Flames/Vancouver Canucks Line Brawl. Just two seconds into the game and ten game misconducts later, one of the strangest hockey games in recent memory began.

Dave is unable to join us this week. He suffered an unfortunate injury during his beer league game on Friday night and lost a couple teeth. We’re wishing him a very speedy recovery and hope he’s back in no time!

P Mac on the Street joins us (literally from the street) via Skype to give his take on the events on and off the ice and brings just how John Tortorella accessed the visitor’s dressing room at Rogers Arena into question.

The excitement dies down briefly and the girls chat about the sad break up of Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie. We also talk about the ongoing Stadium Series and outdoor games happening across North America. Will people care by the time the Heritage Classic comes to Vancouver on March 2nd?

We shift back to the great Canucks/Flames Line Brawl ’14 and talk about newcomer Kellan Lain and just about every aspect of the events of Hockey Day in Canada.

Really fun episode. ALL CHICKS ON DECK!

Episode #16 – The Tampa Bay Lightning Appreciation Station

A very special Monday Night edition of Pucks on net and our favourite NHL beat reporter P Mac on the Street sits in with Dave and Ryan to discuss a whole lot of happenings in the NHL these days.

Ryan talks about buying a random Pucks on net listener a beer at Roger’s Arena during the Pittsburgh Penguins’ visit to Vancouver last Tuesday and the gang dives into the Winnipeg Jets’ problems and their new coach Paul Maurice.

We hear the latest on the ongoing saga of David Booth and his position with the Vancouver Canucks. Where will he end up? On the third line, Utica or in another hockey sweater?

We propose a bold idea that the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres merge and become one team. It’s happened before, it can happen again!

Later on we give out our picks for the NHL Awards at the mid-way point of the regular season.  What starts out as a legitimate discussion of the best players in the league quickly turns into the guys talking about how much they like the Tampa Bay Lightning.

A very fun episode this week and very hockey heavy!

We chat about the Winter Classic, the dull cast of characters in HBO 24/7 (except for Todd Bertuzzi of course!!!). We also talk about counterfeit NHL jerseys, the upcoming Sochi Olympics and not if, but when Uncle Marty Brodeur steals the net for Team Canada.
