Episode #145 – Jack Eichel Throwing Batteries

The second round is here, the Senators are sticking around and Jack Eichel felt like he wanted a new head coach, so he got one!

Ryan, Dave and Geeta gather this week to discuss the interesting decision to fire Sabres GM Tim Murray and head coach ‘Disco’ Dan Bylsma after comments made regarding Jack Eichel’s future in Buffalo as well as negative comments from Ryan O’Reilly.

They also discuss the Toronto Maple Leafs falling in six games to the Washington Capitals in a series that was much closer than it should have been. The Ottawa Senators however took care of the Boston Bruins in six games, and Dave has some scathing comments for their less than classy fan base following the loss. The latest instalment of sore wining by the Bean Town faithful.

Finally, they give their second round picks, Ryan gives a bold prediction of a future Colorado/Chicago trade. Being swept in the first round leads to some rash decisions!

Episode #144 – Dart Guy & The Curse of Brooks Laich

“Aren’t they supposed to be good?” The common question hockey fans are asking themselves watching the first few games of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Ryan, Dave and Geeta join you this week to discuss Zack Kassian’s resurgence in Edmonton. Playing like his boyhood idol, Todd Bertuzzi, he is finally making the impact everyone believed he had the potential for. But a rough time in Vancouver and Montreal caused a bit of a derail of those plans and aspirations.

They also discuss the problems the Washington Capitals are facing taking on the red hot, young as hell Toronto Maple Leafs and maybe that Brooks Laich trade last season caused some bad karma for the Capitals.

They talk about the problems in Chiacgo right now and Dave discusses the problems facing good guy “players’ coaches” in the playoffs. Guys like Bruce Boudreau, AV and Gully, while the angry snap shows are showing success!

Finally, the gang discusses Dart Guy, all things Maple Leafs and the fantastic success in Pittsburgh and their tremendous NCAA scouting.

Episode #143 – Fired Willie À La Mode

The Stanley Cup Playoffs are here! Your favourite NHL team is either in them, or they’re firing their coaching staff!

A full bench joins you this week to discuss the big firing in Vancouver. After a three year stint and a losing record with the Canucks, Willie Desjardins was fired Monday morning. If you’ve listened to this podcast for a little while, you knew the frustration with the Climax Saskatchewan native’s decisions behind the bench and when constructing his lines. Who will replace him? Will it be Comets head coach Travis Green? or a grizzled vet that is unemployed right now?

A full bench joins you this week after a hiatus due to trips to Fiji and or the interior of British Columbia. Ryan shares some stories of the road and the gang discusses the Canucks’ lost season’s final few games.

They discuss the saga of Matthew Tkachuk. Going against the grain as a rookie, he is upsetting a lot of the veteran players for running his mouth, playing a hard yet so far honest game and going after Drew Doughty. The gang is also gearing up for a potential Battle of Alberta first round series and getting very excited!

They touch on the incredibly exciting Toronto Maple Leafs and how each game they play seems to be must see TV. Will they last in the playoffs? Can the young as hell squad be able to nail down a 60 minute effort? Or will they become a team of next year or the year after?

Eddie Lack’s scare vs Detroit comes up. Ryan, Geeta, Dave and P Mac are all relieved he is okay and discuss the possibilities of him returning to Vancouver next season.

Finally, the gang rants on the NHL’s decision to not go to the 2018 Winter Olympics. Is this a done deal? or the latest in a long, drawn out game of chicken?  They also discuss the best bar toilets in Vancouver. The answers will surprise you!
