Episode #71 – And Ryan Kesler as ‘The Villain’

The Ducks and Blackhawks are beating the crap out of each other and the Easter Conference teams are sitting back and takin’ it easy!

Dave, P Mac and Ryan are here this week to talk about the AMAZING series between the Ducks and the Blackhawks. They look at Ryan Kesler’s douchebaggery, but also praise him on his intense style of play, regardless of the effects on his body or his career being shortened.

They’re also (obviously) talking Mike Babcock in Toronto and what could happen the first few seasons, and Dave (with a little help from James Duthie) brings up another way the seasons could go that Maple Leafs fans might not like.

The guys also look back at Eric Lindros, the Nordiques drafting him 1st overall, him not reporting and what affect he could have had on the Quebec Nordiques franchise if he decided to report and play after all.

We also introduce two new segments to the show this week:
“Buck Martinez Doesn’t Care About The Memorial Cup” and “Junior Hockey Players Swearing on National TV!”

Episode #70 – Appetite For Relocation

Are the Arizona Coyotes moving again? What is this, a re-run?

Ryan, Dave and P Mac get together this week to talk about the possibility of the Arizona Coyotes being moved in a pinch to a couple different cities.

Dave outlines the chance of an NHL team in Saskatoon (HEY! it almost happened in the 90’s) and how it could work…just as long as they call em the Roughriders!

Eddie Lack’s name is coming up in trade rumours a lot this week, the guys talk about goalie combinations and what Jim Benning could and should do with smiling Eddie Lack.

They also talk Mike Babcock, the IIHF World Hockey Championships, Leon Draisaitl and the power house Kelowna Rockets headed to the Memorial Cup and a funny discovery about who’s on the pay roll for the Edmonton Oilers.

Episode #69 – Street Fighting Man

Someone mistakes Dave as Linden Vey and throws a punch at him, needless to say, Canucks fans aren’t happy with the former Medicine Hat Tiger

Geeta, Dave and Ryan are here this week to talk about the Montreal Canadiens making a series out of it against Tampa Bay and Ovi’s quest for the Stanley Cup Finals.

They’re also talking positive direction in Edmonton, Bob Hartley for the Jack Adams award and a look back at Mark Messier in the 2003 Heritage Classic in Edmonton…when he was still an active member of the New York Rangers.

They look at Jaromir Jagr’s new positive role in the NHL and his quest to climb the all time NHL points leader standings and look back at Carey Price’s draft day and Pierre McGuire’s absolute shock at their draft pick…needless to say it worked out pretty well from the Habs!

Episode #68 – The Mike Babcock Pizza Analogy

Tampa Bay has Montreal’s number, Mike Babcock has the number of all 30 GM’s in the league and Paul wore a certain Florida hockey jersey to the podcast this week.

Ryan, Dave and P Mac are here this week to talk about the Canadiens’ ongoing problems w/ the Lightning and what needs to change for the Game 3 and onward.

They look at the possible new employers of Mike Babcock, including a couple not really being mentioned, and discuss the soon to be quick exit of the Calgary Flames by the Anaheim Ducks after looking so promising against the Vancouver Canucks.

On the subject of the Canucks, they look at some prospects going to Utica, who could crack the big club next year and just what they might do with their goalie situation.

Finally, they take a look at the Hart Trophy finalists and give their thoughts on who should walk away with the hardware.
