Rink Report – April 16, 2014

Welcome to the first Rink Report, a daily podcast catching you up on the news of the NHL, and setting you up with the hockey games of the night.

This is really rough.  I’m not used to podcasting on my own, and I’m doing this for fun and for the experience of it.  I will make mistakes, names, stats, things like that.  I will do my best to correct them on the twitter feed and in the next episode in an errata section.

Heck, I don’t even know if I’ll be able to sustain this.  Let’s just see how it goes.

As ever, this is an independent podcast, and not associated with the NHL or any other media outlets.  All mistakes are my own, unless stated otherwise.

The Rink Episode 56: Agree to Disagree

Tom Luongo and I have a few things we agree about, and a few we don’t.  From suspensions to goals, to hiring and firing, it’s a very special episode of The Rink. (OK, it isn’t very special, but I like it)

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.

Rink Podcast Episdoe 39

The draft is fast approaching, and Tom is excited.  I am too, but there is plenty to talk about, and we get to it.  Bouwmeester, the awards, and where will old man Cheli play next year?

The Rink Episode 29B

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.
