The Rink has a kind of fun flavor this week, considering the news out of the NHL this week is dominated by suspensions. Tom and I discuss who is to blame and what we should be expecting from out hockey players, coaches and fans. We look at the playoffs, and I have some perspective on the Blue Jackets final game. Plus the Vezina trophey nominies are announced, and we like what we are seeing.
This week, Tom and I are excited about the playoffs, even though our two favorite teams are playing golf. Breakdowns, what is going tight, and what is going wrong, and a few jokes along the way.
Tom references Machiavelli (wikipedia link)
Part two of Tom and I talking with Eric McErlain. In this part, we discuss the rest of the hockey world outside of the playoffs, including other potential choices for the Islanders’ first round pick. And since we have Eric on the line, we talk a healthy amount about the Washington Capitals.
Another two parter this week. Eric McErlain joins Tom and I for a preview of the playoffs. The best part is, I get to stay out of the way for the most part. Bonus for you.
Part two goes live a little later in the week.
We were a little late getting this one out, but we did manage to save the episode from being completely out of date before it hit the web. The playoffs are just a few days away, and with only a couple of games left in the regular season, the matchups are looking interesting. Plus, Crosby fights like a man finally, and Sean Avery isn’t a good actor after all.
