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 62: Time for a Tweetcast

It’s time for a tweetcast, where I poll twitter (you can follow The Rink at @rinkpodcast, or follow me at @tapeleg), and see who wants to talk hockey on the podcast.

K oc C:

(sorry, K had some problems with her phone. I did my best to minimize the noise, but it’s still there)

The Rink Episode 53: Tweetcast!

It’s another tweetcast, and I’m joined by a happier Jay Kumar to talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs, and by Justin Goldman of The Goalie Guild to talk about… goalies.  And we have a lot to talk about. It’s a fun episode of The Rink.

The Rink Episode 50: Around the Rinks

It’s a bit of a milestone for The Rink. Episode 50 finds Tom and I talking about our favorite teams, Tom’s night out, and plenty of other stuff, including the Bruins solving problems, and the NHLPA having a hard time solving theirs.

The Rink Episode 46: Return of Tom

With the summer over, Tom Luongo makes his glorious return from off season hibernation, and has a few things on his mind.  We talk about preseason hits, The Great One becoming the missing one, and the NHLPA. Plus a whole lot more.

As promised, here is the Milwaukee Admirals 3rd jersey. If it weren’t a RBK EDGE jersey, I would buy one in a heartbeat.

A quick note about the production: Thanks to the great state of Alaska, there is no good internet to be found. I can’t stream anything, I can’t use Skype, nothing. Tom and I had to talk on our cellphones, and record the audio of our mics separately. So if things sound strange, it’s because we weren’t using our normal recording process.

The Rink Episode 38

I’m flying solo this week, and that means I get to talk about what I want to.  The Stanley Cup has been handed out and the season is over, but there is still plenty of news in the NHL and around the minor leagues.

Call in to The Rink and let us know how your season went. Were you happy?  Were you dissapointed? Did you get Versus on your hotel TV? Call The Rink at 845-704-RINK (7465).

The Rink Episode 29A

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.

The Rink Episode 9

When we get a chance to talk with Eric McErlain of NHL Fanhouse, The Sporting Blog, and of course, Off Wing Opinion, we don’t give him a few minutes, we talk with him the whole show, and then some.  Tom, Eric and I talk Sharks, Stars, Sundin, and other hockey topics that do not start with the letter S.  Hear me call Mike Modano “Matt.”  Fun for the whole family.
