Sunday, June 14 - Stanley Cup Finals & other tidbits

Cassie and I managed to fill an hour chatting about the Stanley Cup Finals (for casual fans, Chicago now leads Tampa Bay 3 games to 2. Game 6 is tonight at 8pm ET). We also talked about the latest happenings surrounding the beleaguered Arizona Coyotes, and the Pavlovian response by media in Seattle and Portland. (For the record: we both believe the NHL will do whatever it can to keep the Yotes in AZ, and that either Seattle or Portland will get an expansion team, if and when the league decides to expand). Cassie updated the NHL anti-trust lawsuit.

Here's the podcast, should you wish to take a listen:

Saturday, January 17: NHL to Seattle, Vegas or Quebec City + a special event saluting Seattle Metropolitans & WHL shoutout

Cassie and I chatted about a special event in the works to celebrate the legacy of the Seattle Metropolitans, the first American team to win the Stanley Cup. A Seattle-area man has taken it upon himself to plan the entire thing and has even used his own money for the down payment on a venue (Castle Ice Arena in Renton - a city just south of Seattle, to those not familiar with the area). This even is still in the planning stages, so we'll update you as things become more concrete.

Then, we tackled the latest on plans to expand the NHL to Seattle or Las Vegas (or both!), through a recent interview between Jeremy Roenick and the guys at Puck Daddy, among other outlets, and shared our own thoughts about both cities, as well as Houston and Quebec City.

We gave a shout out to Lake Erie Monsters (AHL) goalie Calvin Pickard, who currently leads the NHL in save percentage (.936). That impressive number comes from his short relief stint with the Colorado Avalanche. Calvin played juniors with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL. #5 on that list is Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price (.927), who also played in the WHL, with the Tri-City Americans. A third shoutout went to Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson, who was named an All Star in just his second year in the NHL. Tyler was born and raised in Spokane and played juniors for the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL.

Saturday, January 3 - Special Guest: Lyle Richardson (Spector's Hockey). WJC, Winter Classic + more

Happy 2015!

Cassie and I just wrapped up our first show of the new year with special guest, our good friend and awesome hockey mind, Lyle Richardson from "Spector's Hockey." We chatted about a lot of things and managed to keep the entire show focused on HOCKEY. (If you listen to us regularly, you know we often go off on lovely tangents about football and other sports).

Here are just a few of the topics we covered today:

(Photo: Associated Press)

  • Yesterday's Pens vs. Lightning game, which featured weird goals, pre-game violence between teammates and one puking referee.
  • 2015 WJC, specifically, Team USA's meltdown against the Russians, as well as Team Canada's strong win against Denmark. Canada meets Slovakia and Russia meets Sweden for the chance to advance to the Gold Medal game. Who've YOU got in the finals?
  • 2015 Winter Classic: Caps vs. Blackhawks. Lyle and I enjoyed the game and the production value; Cassie didn't watch. However, this was the lowest rated game since the Winter Classic began and we discussed the potential reasons for that (most prominently: the same teams are featured too much).

Today's show went into extra time - about 10 minutes worth, which is only available in the podcast. WARNING: We talk about Mike Milbury in a way you might want to visualize, to proceed at your own risk.
