The Rink Episode 49: A New Hope?

This week on The Rink, everything is coming up bananacakes, as both Tom and I are having stellar starts to the season. But the Avs and Sabres aren’t the only things on our minds. Tom and I talk about the bottom end of the spectrum, which includes the Leafs, Red Wings, and Canucks, and we even delve into the dreaded trap. Enjoy.

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 43: Scotty Wazz

Scott Wasilewski joins me in Tapeleg Studios for a podcast session that is at times serious, at times funny, and at times, I have no idea.  We talk about the Senators and who is in goal, the Coyotes and their circus, Patrick Kane, and a host of other topics. I had a great time recording this, I hope you have a great time listening.

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 34

If the Playoffs aren’t going the way Tom and I want, do we still have to watch them? The answer is yes, but we can still complain about them.  And news comes in fast and furious (finally) about the Coyotes situation.  Tom and I have all the updates as the dogs see there day in court.

Rink Special Edition: Coyotes File for Bankruptcy

A Rink special edition.  The Phoenix Coyotes have filed for bankruptcy, and tendered an offer from Jim Bassillie, who has been spurned by the NHL in the past.  Lots of news coming in fast, but Tom and I discuss the implications and break down what this means for the league.
