The Rink Episode 68: Why No Jagr?

For episode 68, you would think the Jaromir Jagr would come up once, but he wasn’t the story when it came to the Flyers.  James O’Brien and I talk about Pronger and the impact his injury may have on visors, as well as what is going on in this crazy league, where the Stars are on top, the Leafs are a playoff team, and one of the best goalies in the league just isn’t good enough for some people.

The Rink Episode 67: Starting Off Right

We here at The Rink love to get our podcast episodes out in a timely fashion, so we recorded this a few hours before the puck dropped for the start of the season, and got it posted the morning after.

I’m happy to talk to new co-host James O’Brien of ProHockeyTalk and formerly of Cycle Like the Sedins.  We hit upon most of the teams, as well a some of the more controversial issues like no-touch icing, and Brendan Shanahan and his Shanahammer.

We had a few technical issues when recording, so James O’B doesn’t sound quite as good as he could, but we will have it ironed out for next time.

Rink Road Trip: Who Wants to Chat?

On Monday, October 10th, I’m starting a drive from Buffalo, NY to Denver, CO, and want to talk some hockey along the way.  I’ve always liked talking to a variety of people on The Rink Podcast, and want to meet up with hockey fans along the drive and get your thoughts on the upcoming hockey season.

If you are in the path of the road trip, hit me up in the comments and let me know, or get in touch with me here.  Or hit me up on twitter (@rinkpodcast).
