Punks on net


Ryan here,

Since we started doing the podcast in 2013,  I’ve edited and posted the show each week. More importantly, I have been given the responsibility to name each episode. Well, I’m a huge music fan, one would argue I’m a bigger fan of music and loud fast rock and roll more than I am a hockey fan. So every now and then, when I get a chance to make reference to or name a podcast after a band, album or song, I’m generally going to take it.

Episode #129 – Open Bar Christmas

Tis the season! Tis the season for the 4th annual Pucks on net Christmas Party! And this year, it’s got an open bar!

The whole gang joins you on this festive and lively podcast to celebrate the Christmas season, give some gifts to NHL players and teams and enjoy a cocktail or two with some friends of the show.

They discuss Hall’s hit on Philip Larsen, whether a suspension was needed or the hit was clean, but more importantly, discuss how stupid and pointless the post hit scrum was. A common trend in hockey, a fight after a hard hit, and something that we can all do with out.

They also touch on Carey Price’s rage on the New Jersey Devils, whether he as well needed a suspension and if there was a tad bit of favouritism from the NHL to Price.

Connor McDavid and Edmonton’s retribution against the Philadelphia Flyers comes up and the ongoing conspiracy whether Brandon Manning intended to hurt Connor McHockey last season.

A couple friends of the show join the podcast. Sam Anderson joins as Ryan discusses a traumatizing Christmas story, ‘China’ Dave Hoskins regales us with a tale of playing hockey in China and Errol Bruce (The Biscuit) shares his distaste of Mark Messier and hopes for Jagr to pass him on the all time NHL point leaders board sooner, rather than later.

Finally, Geeta takes the mic and talks to some party guests, where we all hilariously learn, nobody listens to the hsow.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Episode #128 – Top Line Bo

Snow has shut Metro Vancouver down, but we still got this week’s podcast out for all of you! Ryan, Geeta and P Mac gather this week for a loose show to talk all things Canucks right now!

They talk about head coach Willie Desjardins and president Trevor Linden almost weekly tradition of putting questionable comments and quotes in the media. Does the Canucks front office need media training? Would that calm down the concerned fan base?

The gang also talks about Bo Horvat. Did we say talk about? We said praise the hell out of following his coming out party on national television against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The gang asks the tough question, when will big Bo be the top line centre in Vancouver?


They also touch on Philip Larsen leaving Tuesday night’s game vs New Jersey following a huge hit from Taylor Hall, discuss the log jam of players coming back from injury and whether Jim Benning makes a move to replace Larsen and Dorsett, who it was recently revealed he could be done for the season with neck problems.

Finally, the gang looks at Randy Carlyle’s interesting choice of words to describe John Gibson’s health this weekend, reminisce about snow days, GT Snow Racers and take some questions from twitter.
